The number of available Linux games became so massive that, as a consequence, we reached a point where there are a lot of interesting but overlooked titles waiting to be discovered.

My articles aim to be a small contribution in that sense, by giving these hidden gems some of the exposure they deserve.

That is a damn good bundle. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), I already own most of the games in that bundle, including all the games I care about in it.

Is Dungeon Defenders mouse sensitivity still broken on Linux?

Worth it for Insurgency alone :) Unepic is one of my favorite games ever too, so I cannot recommend it enough :)

Payed full price for Freedom Planet when it was ported over. Do check it out. =b

Quoting: AnxiousInfusionIs Dungeon Defenders mouse sensitivity still broken on Linux?

I'm not aware of any mouse sensitivity problems in Dungeon Defenders. We normally play 4 player local co-op, with M+K, 2 x 360 controllers and 1 steam controller. Just avoid the Series EV class, because that will crash the game at some point. Otherwise it's solid, and still one of the better local co-op games in my book.

Wait, Bundle Stars? Isn't that one of those fly-by-night key resellers? Chances are good these will count as Windows sales. Keep that in mind before spending your money.

Yup. Very much so.
I found it on their bugtracker aswell but it doesn't seem like they care at all. Dungeon Defenders really shouldn't be considered "linux friendly"

I originally had the same concern, but, according to the webmaster (LINK, if a Linux icon is shown, then it counts as a Linux sale.

In some cases this would be a problem but it won't happen here.

When a game has different publishers for the Windows and Linux versions then only one of them is going to get paid for any given sale, and the store selling that game or bundle might have bought the keys from a publisher that wasn't involved with the platform that the consumer is using. If we check Steam for a game ported by Aspyr or Feral we will see that they are listed as the developer and publisher of the port but other companies are listed for the Windows version. For games ported by them it is important to check the publisher when buying from anywhere other than Steam or their own stores.

In this case though if we check on Steam we see that every game in this bundle only has a single developer and publisher. There is no where else that the keys could have come from so we don't need to worry that the wrong company will get paid.

I'd still buy using a browser running within Linux because I'm sure that Bundle Stars like all other e-commerce sites keeps stats on things like that, and I'd redeem them on Linux fairly quickly because Steamworks provides quite a bit of data to publishers. I sometimes find the amount of information being kept about consumers troubling, but when it comes to what platform I buy games for I want this widely known.
