The 'Humble Bundle's Best of 2016' has some great Linux games for cheap

Are you a little broke after the holidays? Never fear, as Humble are back with a new bundle and it has some great Linux games.

The Humble Bundle's Best of 2016 is live!

Here's what you can get (I won't bother listing non-Linux games).

Pay what you want:
- Victor Vran
- Else Heart.Break()

Pay more than the average
- Rust
- Shadowrun: Hong Kong - Extended Edition

It's worth it for Victor Vran alone, as that game is seriously good fun especially with the co-op support it has. I've put 5 hours into VV myself and will eventually get around to finishing it! Article taken from

I've put 20 hours into Shadowrun Returns and 34 into Shadowrun: Dragonfall (Director's Cut).
I'm sure Shadowrun: Hong Kong is worth it as well.

Thanks, just made the purchase.
I was sure to adjust the money to favor the games the do have a Linux version. I'm not sure it it will ever make a difference, but here's hoping!

If you are unsure and short on money, Victor Vran is already largely worth the minimal price, in my opinion.
I already own the Linux games, AFAIK, since I didn't miss many bundles in 2016 (just one pretty recently with sci-fi books, but eh, not a big deal). I am just stating that because I find that humble bundles nowadays lack Linux games. Monthly is barely worth it, but I think it still is. XCOM 2 next month, so there's that, at least.
I might buy the bundle for some friends, though.

Be warned that else Heart.Break() has a lighting bug that makes the whole screen blink or too dark on occasion.

The rest of the games are Steam-only, so that’s rather disappointing.

Quoting: ToriI was sure to adjust the money to favor the games the do have a Linux version. I'm not sure it it will ever make a difference, but here's hoping!

You’re not alone ;). I guess most people just pay 1$ and don’t bother adjusting the sliders, but I always first pay to charity only to get access to the games, then test them, then pay according to their quality. Games that are not for Linux of course get nothing.

Yes, the "Humble Indie Bundle" series still has only fully cross-platform games, but those are fewer and farther between. In the meantime you get a 'Humble <whatever> Bundle' that has two or three Linux games if you're lucky.

I have the Shadowrun game already, but I may decide to get the bundle anyway, though I always hesitate to get the ones that have non-Linux content.

No purchase for me, but only because I already have all of the Linux games except for Rust. I'm kind of interested in Rust, but I'm not willing to beat the average for it.

Victor Vran is really awesome. Definitely worth the $1 alone.

Picked up Humble Bundle Best of 2016 "Beat The Average" myself, but only for 2 games I wanted. The remaining 4 games, I'm gifting to a friend who is gifting me the 3 Linux games from Humble Overwhelmingly Positive Bundle (Day of the Tentacle, Pony Island, Refunct). Pretty happy with that turn of events.
