Well, I was writing up both Outlast & Shadow warrior, then I checked my twitter feed and...dayam! Outlast & Shadow warrior are both now on Linux and in the brand new Humble Indie Bundle 14, what a day!

There goes ALL my time tonight! Of course they all have DRM free builds as well, so we can all get in on the fun.

The Games
Pixel Piracy
UnEpic
Super Splatters

Pay $10 or more to unlock!
Shadow Warrior Special Edition - Steam currently claims it's not on Linux for me, so it hasn't reached all of their networks yet.

Pay more than the average of $5.49 to unlock!
Outlast
Torchlight II
La-Mulana

More games coming soon!

Looks like Humble are back on form this time! Amazing bundle!

Check out Humble Indie Bundle 14 here.

Outlast Performance
Since this is a new port I decided that rather than spam out lots of articles, to keep it here.

Setting everything to Very High gives me a near solid 60FPS. Not sure if turning VSYNC off actually works, as my maximum FPS never went over 62FPS. I know VSYNC is usually 60FPS, but I just find 62 odd.

As I begin to play all that's going through my mind is "please be buggy, please don't make me play this!". Sadly, to my despair everything works really, really smoothly.

As I continue through the Asylum everything is working as expected, and the visuals really are quite good. Also, please don't make me crawl through that bloodied air vent :(.

I proceed to push a door and...nope, just nope. I jumped in my chair. Do not want.

it seems the port has some graphical glitches. We are uncertain how common they are, but so far they are not game-breaking. We will update you when we know more, or when we can force ourselves to play some more, it's bloody scary.

Shadow Warrior Performance
I downloaded the DRM free build since it isn't on Steam yet, and there are a few issues with the game.

On a dual monitor it stretches across both and positions itself in the middle, which is highly annoying. Full screen seems to lock all input, so I was unable to alt+tab. Luckily, I did manage to get it to work fully in Windowed mode!
This doesn't happen on the Steam version, I can alt+tab and fullscreen just fine.

I can't quite put my finger on what's going on with the graphics, but even on Ultra it looks nothing close to the fidelity shown on the Steam store.
A developer responded saying Linux is missing graphical features that are being worked on.

Performance is perfect though, I'm getting over 100FPS a lot!

Torchlight II
We already did a port report on that here.

UnEpic
Seems to work just fine in my testing, gives me a solid 60FPS and the gameplay is very smooth.

I haven't played too much of it, just the tutorial, and everything worked as expected. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Also, I knew something was going on! I was watching both Shadow Warrior and Outlast on Steamdb this morning after noticing a lot of activity

Nice bundle. First in a long time where I didn't own anything.
When activated on steam, Shadow Warrior gave me the option to download. I didn't try it but it may work.

@ liam: Have you tried setting all the graphics to lowest and turning off VSync on Outlast? You probably already tried this, just checkin :-)

I won't be able to pick up the Bundle until tomorrow, so thanks for the quick review :-)

It's the first time that i buy games on HumbleBundle. How work the game's update if i download the "DRM-FREE" version ?

Suggestion here for all the free keys,

Maybe We could give them to gaming on linux website and they open up an account for G2A goldmine and sell them there ?
This would be another way to help the website.

Just my 2 cents

Shadow Warrior doesnt show up in my games list yet.

Unfortunately it looks like our config files are a bit different from our Windows counterparts. There should be a OLGame.ini file you can edit to unlock the framerate. Instead, there's a defaultgame.ini which lacks the option, however you can still edit FOV and such it appears. Will report back later; I was hoping to play at 120/144hz.

Edit: Success! You need to go to /home/[you]/.local/share/Outlast/OLGame/Config and the files are there You can find various fixes and tweaks here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/238320/discussions/0/846963710902292389/

For me Torchlight II DRM-Free does not work and i have the same md5 key like on the HB Website :
odelpasso@debian-laptop:/media/Autres/SteamGames$ md5sum Torchlight2-linux-2015-03-30.sh 
b5990b0ab966918e8ffd4f89b6545cd2  Torchlight2-linux-2015-03-30.sh
odelpasso@debian-laptop:/media/Autres/SteamGames$ ./Torchlight2-linux-2015-03-30.sh 
Verifying archive integrity...Error in MD5 checksums: de1f006f77775f979408acfb46531ac0 is different from a4b28ff5b24912ed8b0ddc1045d11b20

First time in a long time I saw a Humble Bundle and just bought it. On the spot. Without hesitation. Yes.

I am nigh on incoherence right now.
