Paying above the average price grants purchasers access to more games and their soundtracks. As with all other bundles, more games will be added in about a week's time, so there's always more to look forward to!

In more good news, we've reached the 100 port milestone through the Humble Bundle's in-house ports, something which they've made a point of talking about and celebrating in their blog.

Humble BlogOh by the way, over the lifetime of Humble Bundle our Linux users pay $1 more than the average Mac user and $2.60 more than the average Windows user. Now that is something to humble brag about.


The main bundles always include games that are cross-platform and DRM-free and so they've gotten plenty of experience in porting over indie games for us to enjoy. As they mention, it is often difficult for small developers to bring over games to other platforms and so the higher-than-average donations by Linux users have ensured that the ports have been worth their time and effort. In short, it's a win-win situation for everyone involved.

I've tried all the games in the bundle except for Amnesia: AMFP and almost all of them seemed to work fine: Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet so far has crashed two times (although it's the one I've played the most by a wide margin).

I didn't have any problem with Tower of Guns. If I had to point something out though, I'd say its somewhat low feedback when you're hurt. Several times I found myself with very low health without being aware I had been hit so much (especially in boss battles). But this is probably the game's fault, and not the Linux port's.

Well, I can of course say that technically AMFP runs well thanks to the great work of Frictional Games and Edward Rudd. No problems there.

Good. Let's see if something interesting arrives next week to make the bundle even better.

So now they have gone and added Eldritch which I also recently purchased on its own separately.

All this is doing is making me disinclined to show any personal initiative when it comes to selecting my own games in the future...
