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....

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.

    Frictional Games have made some seriously creepy games, first came the Penumbra series, then the Amnesia games & most recently SOMA. If you haven't got them grab them now, you'll never have a good night's sleep again. ;)
