The Humble Store Winter Sale is live, another FREE game is going too

Posted by , | Views: 18,809

Another sale, time to pick up some cheap games if you missed some during other big sales last month. This time Humble Store have a big selection up and a free game to grab.

The free game is Headsnatchers, a hectic local/online party game. No official Linux support but it does seem to run in Steam Play Proton. You have about 72 hours to claim it, or until all their keys run out. I personally tried it in the latest Proton, worked fine with two gamepads in local multiplayer.

For the Winter Sale, there's absolutely tons currently on discount plenty big and small to suit all tastes. Multiple publishers also have dedicated winter sales on including: Paradox Interactive, Take-Two Interactive (2K), Codemasters, SQUARE ENIX and more.

As for some suggestions, there's plenty! The Puppy Games Ultrabundle is an absolute steal right now, a long supporter of Linux gaming too. Have a taste for The Witcher after the Netflix show? The Witcher 2 is 85% off, good deal for it. Tons more essentials that you can't miss:

You probably already know what you want, no need for me to suggest a big long list. You can see plenty more on the Humble Store. The sale ends on Sunday, January 12 at 6PM UTC.

When steam and gog introduced payment in local currencies, then I didn't buy a single game from the Humble Store (bundle yes, but not store). It became unprofitable. Since the Humble Store game costs +25/30% more expensive than on Steam or GOG.

You mean local currencies, or regional pricing? Currently you can use the local currency; don't know about regional pricing though.

(In any case, Deus Ex Mankind Divided is a steal right now; and I wholeheartedly recommend it. Though be aware that the OpenGL port doesn't perform that well.)

It was the first game I had to delay playing because it sometimes ran so bad. Is there some trick to it, like manually switching it to Vulkan?

And do I remember correctly that you find crates that you cannot open without paying?

I'm not sure what the state of its proton compatibility currently is. If it runs under proton at all, I'm pretty sure the performance will be significantly better than the 'native' opengl. (By the way, under windows, the DX12 version is similarly broken.)

I never came across things of that sort -- in fact the microtransactions can be 100% ignored (contrary to what one might expect, based on the idiotic marketing campaign for this game before release).

(Though to be fair, I'm not the best judge as to whether it's grindy or not w/o any (bloody) 'timesavers', because I really take my time with this game, exploring every nook & cranny, etc.)
