Humble Day of the Devs Bundle 2016 has some nice Linux games going for cheap

Posted by , | Views: 8,135
Humble Day of the Devs Bundle 2016 is the latest pay what you want bundle, and it actually has some pretty nice Linux games on offer.

I've left out the non-Linux games.

PWYW
Broken Age

Pay more than the average
Massive Chalice
Oxenfree
Grim Fandango Remastered

Pay $9 or more
Day of the Tentacle Remastered

You also get "10% off Humble Monthly for New Subscribers" for picking up the bundle, which sometimes includes some pretty good games itself.

I actually just picked up Oxenfree on Steam, so I'm kicking myself for not waiting and seeing this, but oh well!

Overall, it's actually not a bad bundle at all, I'm tempted to pick it up for Broken Age alone, to see what all the fuss is about!

Are you picking it up? What's your favourite game in this bundle? Let everyone know in the comments! Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Passed from:
1- "Not buying it: just bought Humble Gems Bundle for Assault Android Cactus and Crypt of the Necrodancer from Steam Halloween Sales"
to
2- "There are some good Linux games though... I'll think about it"
to
3- Ok, for that price I'll buy it (Chosen the "more than average" )
in seconds...

And these are only Halloween sales.... I fear Christmas sales now...

Oh, this is interesting. If you check Oxenfree on the Store page it is only available for Win/Mac via Steam there (it is DRM-free on GOG, though). Together with the remastered Tentacle I guess this means I'll have to take some money in my hand

The possibility to split payments to the developers is indeed very handy, and makes me buy more stuff (e.g., bought the Gems bundle but only payed to Chroma Squad and Assault Android Cactus). Guess I'll do a similar thing here...

Even more worthwhile to note is that all those 5 are DRM-free Downloads! Is Humble going back to the roots?

I just bought Quadrilateral Cowboy (humblestore, DRM-free/Steam), which has drained my game budget for a while. These two last bundles have been sweet anyhow! One can choose to donate to Free Software Foundation (I was surprised by that, but they are selectable), so go ahead!

I love Blendo Games (Brendon's earlier masterpieces Gravity Bone and Thirthy Flights of Loving work with wine, so give them a go (GB is free, TFoL around 5$)). I even made a page for WineHQ for TFoL to get more linux people to try it, Blendo Games did port Quadrilateral Cowboy to linux (and it works GREAT!) so I want to encourage Brendon to continue supporting linux! (I sent him a letter as well - and paid full price for QC and TFoL).

If you guys are dying to play both the 2 non-Native games on your Linux system,
well, they both run fine using Wine.

This is a great solution until the developer/publisher provide us the native versions

I hope I didn't triggered the LJW (Linux Justice Warriors) out there

WINE does really feel like cheating sometimes ^^

Just wait for the core bundles. Up to now every single one of them fully supported linux

The only controversial one of those I remember was the one where Limbo was a wine port...

As much as I've used wine in the past, I'll never consider it a good solution and much less a great solution. Too much hassle, much simpler to just play some of the thousands of games that actually working.
