BOYSSSSSI avoid buying from Bundle Stars, because it counts as a Windows purchase.

Got proof? The games are clearly marked as linux compatible, meaning they are at least intending to market to us.

They are indeed Linux compatible, but the keys themselves are registered as Windows sales. More info in a previous article.

To be perfectly clear that was only for Mordor and Bundle Stars listed it correctly as Windows only.

This bundle has Linux icons and advertises Linux for all of them.

Windows vs. linux keys really only matter when the port is done by an outside contractor like Aspyr and Feral.

No. If a game from a bundle supports all plattforms, it don't count as windows purchase.
But if a game in a bundle supports only windows (icons in the bundle), it's count as windows purchase.

If a bundle was a multiplattform bundle, it's don't count as Windows purchase.

No you are wrong again.

Read your linked article again and again.

They talk about ONE Game: SOM and Feral Interactive as publisher.

Okay, I was wrong, sorry. I don't see how I was wrong again though?

No. For every game and every company, some boss will inevitable some day ask if it was worth supporting Linux.

Bundle Stars bundles...?
Yeah I just recently removed *all* of previous BS games from my Steam account. Most (not all), are fucking horrible, unfortunately.
And that sucks for the devs...

I bought a couple - some are decent. How do you "remove" games from your steam account? Do you mean you deleted them?

Just checked again. You're crazy dude. I got Secrets of Raetikon, PixelJunk Shooter, Knights of Pen & Paper, Ibb & Obb double pack, and a heap of others I've yet to try (or are admittedly not very good) in just two purchases - for pennies. I paid £2.50 for one bundle and £2 for the other. Just over a pint of beer then.

Most bundles have a star or two - which I reckon is where they came up with the name...

It's a good deal, but activating the keys in steam one by one is so tedious. And if I just leave them until "I want to play the game one day", I'll probably never remember having bought them. I wish Steam and/or Bundle Stars made redeeming keys more convenient.

CybolicThey are indeed Linux compatible, but the keys themselves are registered as Windows sales.

As others have pointed out that isn't correct in this case. The Steam store can choose the publisher to pay based on the platform the purchase was made from, and checking Steam for ports from Aspyr and Feral we see they are listed as the publisher for Linux but another company is for Windows. Other stores buy keys from a publisher which may have no involvement in the Linux port. If we check Steam we'll see that the games in this bundle are all published by Forever Entertainment S. A. regardless of platform.

EikeFor every game and every company, some boss will inevitable some day ask if it was worth supporting Linux.

They'll be wondering this even before porting, and will likely include analytics software within the game to tell them this and more. Given that Steamworks will tell publishers where sales are being made, detailed player stats, how web surfers found a store page, etc, we can be sure that at the very least there will be aggregate data about which platform keys were redeemed on.

Edit: Looks like some restrictions are starting to appear on SteamPlay games.
