The Humble Gems Bundle 2 has some nice Linux games in it

Posted by , / 4939 views

Having a boring weekend? This might help light it up a bit! The Humble Gems Bundle 2 is out and it has a few nice Linux games.

For the pay what you want deal only The Count Lucanor supports Linux.

If you decide to dig a little deeper, these titles have Linux support:

  • Pinstripe
  • Slayaway Camp
  • Apotheon

Also, if you pay $10 (about £7.47) or more out of the two in that tier there's Cryptark that supports Linux.

Not the best bundle for Linux gamers, but still a reasonably good deal. I think it's worth it alone for Cryptark as that's a pretty great game.

Did you pick this one up, or are you waiting for something a bit sweeter?

Slayaway Camp is fantastic, be careful though, if you get it for Linux, you'll eventually purchase it again for mobile

Interesting games, I don't have any of them but nothing is on my wishlist or strongly interests me, but I do want to buy the bundle... If I had the money to spare.. What I need is a money tree then I could throw money at them and buy all the linux games.

Lets see: 3 not for Linux, Apotheon I already own, Pinstripe and Slayaway Camp only as Steam Key. No, I guess I'll pass on this one...

I still have to play through the games from the very positive 2 bundle anyhow

I bought this one for Cryptark. The windows game in the $10 Tier you can easily exchange with e.g. the people on barter.vg for a Linux game (I got Interplanetary: Enhanced Edition for it). Apotheon was already part of PS Plus but it is also a sought after game... so trading its key will not be difficult. Pinstripe looks nice and so does The Count Lucanor (possibly for the kids). I'm not decided yet about Slayaway Camp though. I have to say I'm much happier with the last two individual bundles from a Linux perspective than the monthlies...

Looks like this bundle is the only way to get The Count Lucanor DRM-free.

Slayaway Camp is a great game: puzzle game + creative murder + movie references + comedy + killing voxel people. Try it, it's great!

I was interested in Count Lucanor (1$!) but I bought the middle tier too for pinstripe (in the wishlist) and apotheon (seems interesting). I gifted Slayaway Camp (owned already) to Samsai for his Friday Livestream (I mean, it's Friday 13 this October!).

Grabbed it for myself. Surprisingly, I had nothing from the selection already.

For me, I wanted it for Cryptark, Has-Been Heroes (Windows, DRM-Free), Pinstripe, Slayaway Camp, Apotheon. (Watched game-play videos and read reviews before going ahead.)

There are a number of DRM-Free (+ Steam key) titles here, and I always like grabbing DRM-Free, just so that I'm not 100% reliant on Steam and can download an installer. Also, I'm happier to mess around with DRM-Free Windows titles in WINE (i.e. not Steam).

Meanwhile, my internet connection has been down at home for a few days, and as a result I haven't been able to login to Steam and access my Steam game collection. [Really ****ed off with my internet provider - Virgin Media fibre] Not having working internet really does bring attention to the fact that you need it for Steam gaming.

I definitely prefer DRM-free titles too, but in theory you should be able to use Steam in offline mode and games that don’t rely on an internet connection should work! I once played Dungeons of Dreadmor for two weeks while waiting for my internet connection to come back…
