Can games bought from Humble Bundle be downloaded directly or are they just Steam keys, nowdays?

Depends, it's on a per-game basis and depends on the developer putting up a DRM free build.

Humble Store notes DRM free specifically if it has it.

I see, thanks. After a little digging I found a filter for DRM-free at the store.

Still, look closely. If you select 'Linux' and 'no DRM' it will still also display games that have DRM-free versions on Win/Mac, but are Steam-only for Linux....

You will not regret the buying. It's an amazing game and ever-evolving. The newtonian flight mode might be weird to get used at first, but it's a really good implementation and after some time you get used to it and even start using it to your favor.
Also, although it's early access, it's fairly complete with a whole lot of different levels. You can have dozens of hours of fun with it.

Bought We Are The Dwarves, a tactical RPG with 88% discount. Was going to buy the similarly-named The Dwarves (Deluxe Edition) (also a tactical RPG) but even at 67% the price is quite hard for the moment - US$ 16.49.

Grabbed the Amnesia games, and I'm looking forward to trying them out. I really want to like them; it would mean I could re-examine the horror genre of video games as a whole, which in turn would mean more games available for me to play.

As it stands, however, my play-style puts me at odds with most horror video games. It's not that they couldn't scare me---I'm sure they could---but a several decades watching horror movies has taught me:

  • Don't ghost hunt.
  • Don't go into abandoned buildings, especially abandoned hospitals and asylums.
  • Don't take shortcuts through woods, swamps, or sewers.
  • Don't investigate strange sounds.
  • Don't kiss, fuck, or do anything in-between when monsters and murderers are about.
  • Don't assume a monster/murderer is dead until you curb-stomp its head and/or dismember it.
  • Don't go back for anybody. Ever.
  • Never split up.
  • And never ever go anywhere without a weapon, no matter how makeshift, arm yourself with something.
  • Stupid people die.

and playing horror video games always seem to require I ignore some or all of these.

Still, free's free, and the Amnesia games are said to be classics of the genre. I'll try and role-play a horror movie character, I'll try and play a stupid people for the sake of a good scare. ;)

  • You'll be happy to hear you don't have to break this rule (among others). ;)

    No, seriously: If you manage not to overthink it, you might have a great time.
