The Humble Dystopian Bundle is out with some nice Linux games included

Posted by , | Views: 4,638

For those of you after some fresh games, The Humble Dystopian Bundle is out and it includes a couple good Linux titles.

For the PWYW (Pay what you want) tier you will get Beholder and Orwell: Keeping an Eye On You. If you pay more than the current average then Orwell: Ignorance is Strength is yours.

And finally, if you pay for the top tier you will get >observer_ which is a personal favourite of mine. Great graphics, a story that kept me truly on edge and it really did leave a lasting impression.

Check out the The Humble Dystopian Bundle here.

That might not seem like a lot of titles, however, there's a few titles included that aren't on Linux. These are Tokyo 42, Distrust, Rain World and 60 Seconds! (which has a Linux beta). 

All of those work in Steam Play, although not all to a "Platinum" level.

Actually, you're right, it has an experimental beta going by this post. Announcement was here, looks like it's still not been made officially released.

Rain World... Another failed Kickstarter. It's because of projects like this I don't back games anymore.

At least 60 seconds starts fine. I didn't go any further.

For now, I've added it to our Crowdfunding list page as a Fail. I've also emailed the developer directly to see if we can find out why well over a year later + a Linux stretch goal it seems to still not be on Linux.

And of course there is also the Warhammer Humble Bundle (gamingonlinux partner link) for those who can't be satisfied with just Total War: Warhammer II. ;)
Games:
- Dawn of War III: native!
- Dawn of War I: runs via Steam Play, needs some tweaks to get to 1920x1080;
- Vermintide: runs via Steam Play
- Blood Bowl: runs via Steam Play
- Battlefleet Gothic Armada: runs via Steam Play
- Space Marine Collection: does not run via steam play, but runs smoothly under Lutris or PlayonLinux with wine-staging.
- Talisman: this one I did not test (I don't like card games), but it seems to run without music via Steam Play according to ProtonDB.

I tested Talisman and it did not run. From what I could research online it fails because it expects the Windows Media Player Codecs. You need to download a tool to manually convert the files to WAV [1] or you install WMP into the wineprefix. Slightly annoying because I am sure the developers would only need a small patch to make it compatible with Proton. (The third option would be to select the legacy engine from the beta selector.)

Battlefleet Gothic buggers up on one level, meaning it can't be completed.
Space Marine crashes out soon as an enemy is killed. Unless that's fixed of late.

I recommend Orwell.
I recall playing the first one and staying up to 3am on a work night just to see the ending. It just absorbed me in.
Bare in mind , it is narrative driven and the gameplay is simplistic. Your mileage may vary.
