The Humble Store Fall Sale is live, some great Linux games going cheap

Posted by , | Views: 6,937

Another season, another sale! Looking for a new game? Here's a good chance to take a look at some fine Linux games.

Firstly, if you act fast, you will be able to get a free copy of Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion until November 18th which should work okay with Steam Play.

As for Linux games, here's some picks to get you started off:

There's absolutely tons more, plenty of great deals I'm not mentioning there simply because I would be here all night listing some of my favourite games or things I think you might find interesting. Or perhaps you want to check out a cheap Windows game to try in Steam Play? Feel free to take a wider look.

Humble also still have The Humble Dystopian Bundle which has 11 days left and various other bundles. Head on over to Humble Store and find something new.

Worth noting, the next Steam sale is also this month.

Warning, Distance is 32-bit for some reason. Also, it doesn't detect screen resolution properly. But at least it's working.

I'll try contacting developers about it.

Quite annoying the game is basically broken on the native resolution.

wvstolzingI wonder how the Deus Ex Mankind Divided (DX11 mode) behaves under DXVK. The protondb page for it doesn't contain much in the way of a clue (I mean, it says 'borked', but the person could have tried to run it in DX12 mode, maybe?)

Works great... no issues.

OK, I was able to work around the issue with Distance. I was changing the wrong file. Instead of changing standard Unity location:

$HOME/.config/unity3d/Refract/Distance/prefs

you should change:

$HOME/.config/refract/Distance/Settings/GraphicsSettings.xml

And after that it works fine.

I notice that the Humble store now shows prices in Australian dollars. I wonder when Steam will?

Decided to load up my Humble games Wishlist, and of the 69 titles wishlisted, I have needed to remove 11 of them due to purchase in the last few months. Good to keep one's housekeeping up to date ;)

Thinking to get Observer (in the Dystopian bundle) and Conarium (in the store sale). After I have bought 1 more game, I'll own 1.5k titles on Steam.

EDIT: Just noticed that Turok is incorrectly listed on Humble store as Windows only (recently ported to Linux).

I hope you bought them outside of Humble... It is pretty sad if a wishlist does not automatically remove games that you buy from a store.

I thought know that I am bad... I have 403 titles on Steam (343 linux) I realize that there are people with more, but I know that with 400+ that I am a rare addict. Of course it seems like I have only played about 10% of them, and it feels like I only play 5 or 6 regularly. (Reality is that I actually have played about 20%, but it has been over the years since steam first came to linux.)

I can barely imagine what insignificant portion you have played... (Or how did you get so wealthy to afford them all and have the time to play them )

stretch611I noticed that Pathfinder: Kingmaker Explorer Edition is on sale...

Initially many people mentioned it had a bunch of bugs. Does anyone have this? Is that still true? Does the linux version work well?

It's something I'm actually also planning to buy, so I'm interested in feedback too.

I just finished looking at a bunch of the reviews on Steam...
It seems that a lot of people love the game; but the bugs are quite extensive. Many reviewers have 75 or more hours in the game too, so I believe that they are credible reports. There is a 1.1 patch coming out next week (in their beta branch now) but multiple reviews mention regular hot fixes and the bug complaints even include reviews made today.

I am still interested in the game, but I think I will wait a little while longer while they stabilize it.

Plus... interesting how big updates happen right around steam sales.

Slightly joking - My "game" is online bargain hunting (as well as picking up freebies). But, more recently I have slowed down. My favourite recent FREE pick-up was Shadow Warrior 2 - It was zero cost on GOG (for a couple of days) and adamhm put together a nice WINE script to get this Windows title easily running on Linux.
