While not all of the games in this latest bundle support Linux, those that do are some great picks to have a go.

The Humble Spooky Horror Bundle 2019 went live today, with a total of seven games.

If you pay at least $1 you get:

  • Agony - No Linux support, seems to work in Steam Play.
  • Butcher - Has Linux support.
  • The Town Of Light - No Linux support, performance in Steam Play not the best.

If you pay more than the average you get:

  • Darkwood - Has Linux support, great game.
  • Beholder 2 - Has Linux support, another great game.
  • Pacify - No Linux support, seems to work in Steam Play.

The final tier at $10 has INSIDE, no Linux support there but does seem okay in Steam Play.

Overall, for the titles actually supported on Linux they're good choices and worth picking up. Take a look over on Humble Bundle if interested.

Agony runs great in Steam Play as does pacify, but there are two Agonies, Agony and Agony UNRATED, and I would say that the latter is the "real" version, and the former is a VERY toned down game, which makes it no fun to play. The toned down version is the one offered in this bundle.

Please be sceptical about Butcher Linux support - developer refused to investigate Linux issues in the past, tried to blame Unity for bugs (even though he used old, buggy build of Unity when several bugfix releases were available) and tried to remove Linux support by asking Valve for whitelisting his game in Proton (even though it was buggy in Proton as well at the time). You can test the game using free-to-play demo version on Steam.

Actually both versions of agony are included on the same key as I just bought the bundle and now have both in my library.

Also Liam I think town of light runs fine in steam play as my girlfriend completed at least one of the endings without any fuss and she won't mess about configuring things so must just run at the click of a button.

For native ones, I already have Butcher and Darkwood so I'll pass. I'll buy Beholder 2 later.

Off topic, I have to say Patola your new avatar is fucking great!

Ahh, good, thanks. This must have been more recent than when I saw the case, many people bought Agony thinking it was the uncensored version, and complained in the forums about it. I reckon the developers must have unified the two versiona some time after the complaints.

And about Town of Light, I find it to be somewhat suboptimal in performance, but it's not noticeable in a modern GPU (mine is a 1070).

They look like they might be separate still in the steam store but both activated on the one steam key in the bundle thankfully.

Oh okay she didn't mention poor performance on our GTX1060 but she probably didn't notice knowing her.

Yes you're right I have the Unrated version and it's the only game on my channel I marked as 18+ for some good reasons
I played through the whole game with Proton and Wine works great with a Proton version equals or higher as 4.2 on older versions the game crashes very frequently.
