Humble Monthly adds in Dungeons 3 and Hidden Folks, pretty good deal now

Posted by , | Views: 3,554

The current Humble Monthly just became a much better deal for Linux gamers with two brand new early unlock titles.

Previously, it only had Overwatch (which is playable with Wine + DXVK) although there were some issues recently with Linux gamers being banned and then unbanned. Nice to know Blizzard was good enough to overturn the bans, but still a little risky.

Thankfully, Humble just added Dungeons 3 and Hidden Folks two native Linux games and they're both really quite good. Both games are wildly different and two titles I particularly enjoyed playing, so they're worth picking up.

Considering you also get access to the Humble Trove which has plenty of native Linux DRM free games and a 10% discount in the store, this month is looking like a reasonable deal. Check them out in the Humble Monthly.

They do also still have the The Humble One Special Day Bundle, which has Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition and OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood which have native Linux versions (some of the other games are known to work with Steam Play).

Their wording could be clearer, you can play them right now.

Edit: I did check that before writing the article, they're fine for me.

Do they frown on signing up for a month's games, then immediately cancelling out again? Is there any penalty for doing so?

No. But maybe you just want to pause your subscription afterwards. That's what I do.

This month, I will not pause my subscription. I don't need Overwatch since I have it on PS4, but I do want the two new revealed games. I can either trade Overwatch with someone for a game that I really want, or I'll see what it's like with proper mouse and keyboard via WINE. Good Humble month.

I would argue that this is a good buy for Linux gamers, even just for Overwatch. It's literally a one-click experience with Lutris and the game runs exceptionally well, with no glitches or problems, bar the shader cache. Unless you're a purist and have at least a modest interest in the game - get it. I got the bundle more out of curiosity to check how it runs on Linux - otherwise I'd have bought it for Windows, where I do most of my gaming anyway. No buyers regret. Plus, props to Blizzard to actually solving the ban problem.

It's one click if you have all the requirements met. Which is not actually the case unless you've been using Wine (staging) to play a lot of other games. I had already been running Fortnite and Guild Wars 2, yet I still missed a lot of dependencies. In fact, I had to install the whole 32-bit recommended list for wine-staging to get whatever it was that the launcher needed.

How does this work? Is it with gifts in your account and/or keys you've never used?

Hey! you just dont redeem the keys, and the I put up them on my "have" on steamtrades.com , and then when you trade you click "gift to a friend -> make a link" (on humblebundle) and give them the link. The person with the most +rep gets their keys first, and then you get yours. You connect your steam profile on that site, works well! Here is my page:

I've gotten so many fun games for all those windoz keys I have been hoarding since the beginning of humble bundle You can also just search for people who have one of your keys in their "want", and then look at their have and pick and choose!
