    The Humble Frozenbyte Bundle is maybe 3-4 gigabytes per platform. Shadowgrounds is around 850 MB, Shadowgrounds Survivor 1.1 GB, Trine 650 MB (old stuff removal finally), Jack Claw 400 MB, and then there's the soundtracks.

    For 64-bit Linux, the installers are:
    Trine: 617MB
    Shadowgrounds: 779.6MB
    Shadowground Survivor: 1.1GB

    Source code for either Shadowgrounds game or Jack Claw is 2.7MB, Jack Claw Editor/Assets are 488MB, and the 3 sound tracks range between 70 and 135MB.

    Here's the age suggestions:

    Trine - 12 years (also younger ones can play with adult supervision, it's fantasy violence and lighthearted)
    Shadowgrounds - 16 years
    Shadowgrounds Survivor - 16 years
    Jack Claw 16-18 years (not rated officially, but the most violent game of these)
    Splot - 3-6 years (will take 2-3 months until the game is available)

    So Splot will definitely be alright, and Trine might be ok if you're playing with them - there is fighting against skeletons and other creatures, so it's hard to say for sure and probably depends on the kids and their exposure to other media/games. The other games I wouldn't recommend for kids, they are violent.

    Trine is similar to a side-scrolling platformer, includes skeletons/undead as enemies. Might require more coordination than a 6 year old can provide as well. Not sure about the others.

    Thank you for both. Have to limit children computer use a lot anyway so one new game should be enough by now

    Does anyone else feel like $0.01 purchases shouldn't be allowed? From an economical point of view it's worse than piracy due to the transaction handling fees...

    I know the devs have been ideally against enforcing a pricing restraint of any type. I personally think that it should be required a person pays at least 50 cents or something.

    I think Intel and Gallium drivers are working now, if you're willing to compile Mesa from git master and install the S3TC lib.

    @JoelFB
    You updated the Trine installer, but instead of fixing "undefined symbol: gdk_pixbuf_new_from_stream" now you require a newer GLIBCXX_3.4.14. What's the logic behind that when the game runs with lenny but the installer does not? Maybe ask Svartalf how to create a correct installer. Of course i can do something like that:
    Code:
    INSTALLER=Trine-1.32.run
    DIR=$HOME/trine
    DESKTOP=$(strings $INSTALLER|grep -F .desktop)
    unzip -d $DIR $INSTALLER
    strings $INSTALLER|grep -A7 Desktop|sed "s|%s|$DIR|" >$DIR$DESKTOP
    cd $DIR
    ./createShortcuts.sh desktop menu
    That works for the other games too, just change the first 2 lines to whatever you need. But that also shows that your create/removeShortcuts.sh code is stupid. Change:
    Code:
    DESKTOPDIR=$(xdg-user-dir DESKTOP)
    to this line to get rid of the stupid error when xdg-user-dir is not there:
    Code:
    DESKTOPDIR=$(xdg-user-dir DESKTOP 2>/dev/null)
    Instead of
    Code:
    [ "$DESKTOPDIR" == "" ]
    use
    Code:
    [ -z "$DESKTOPDIR" ]
    and then "#!/bin/sh" will will work - no bash needed anymore - basically you can replace the "==" by "=" too - that still does not look nice but would be dash/POSIX compatible.
