Humble Store has a Square Enix sale with some top Linux games going cheap

Posted by , | Views: 4,127

Always on the look out for a good deal, Humble Store recently announced their Square Enix sale and there's some good choices for cash-strapped Linux gamers.

They do also list Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Life is Strange 2 on sale with Linux icons already (scroll down, they say Coming Soon), these are two games currently being ported by Feral Interactive.

For those curious, I did recently speak to Feral about this and they told me "Pre-release: use a Linux machine to buy the game, then install it on Linux once it's been released. This is true of Humble as well as Steam."—so there should be no issues buying it now according to their official stance.

There's a number of other top titles included in the Square Enix sale which may work with Steam Play, take a look.

Good steals. But who does not yet own those!?

Interesting, Shadow of the Tom Raider and Life is Strange 2 already appear as available for Linux.

There are also some interesting old games, Legacy of Kain, and some console remakes, Star Ocean 4/FF XII, that even though they aren't on Linux I'm highly interested on them. Although being still full head on with The Witcher 3 I'm not sure whether those are a good idea right now.

Maybe that signals that Feral is already the beneficiary of the purchase. Just as a pre-order. Could also be a mistake of course.

I would suggest you both read the article, it's mentioned ;)

Edit: -- Never mind --

And now for something completely different:

Let's talk about our pile of shame.

Deus Ex: MD is definitely a good grab for this price. I really like this game so far.

Who reads full articles nowdays? ;)
So I'm thankful for the question, it made me read the part of the article not consisting of game titles, too.

Me. I've only got Tomb Raider and the mobile version of Lara Croft GO.

AsuSquare! Please put any final fantasy on linux. Preferably FFVII.

I'd be down for VI, IX, the remaster of X, and/or XII. I do know VII runs well with Proton at least.
