    Default Another Humble Indie Bundle Just Launched

    Phoronix: Another Humble Indie Bundle Just Launched

    Another Humble Indie Bundle just launched. This is yet another collection of multi-platform games where you simply pay what you want for the set of Windows / Linux / Mac OS X games and all of them are free of any DRM (Digital Rights Management) restrictions. As usual, this Humble Indie Bundle sale will just be going on for two weeks...

    I don't find the titles very tempting this time.
    Maybe I'll buy it just to show my support.

    How many HiBs until Valve realizes there is a large game library on GNU+Linux?

    "And yet it moves" is very enjoyable me. I had bought it some months ago and it was a pleasure to play even in my low powered laptop.

    Currently I don't quite feel like playing a puzzle platformer though... besides, I already bought BEEP to cover up for that.
    I'd love to play an action RPG or something, I wish Dilogus would come out anytime soon.

    Puzzle games are right up my street.

    I'm still kicking my self for missing the frozenbite bundle, so I've just snapped this one up. A steel at 15$ (What do you mean the average is 5$? get outta here :P )

    So, what do you think? Will the Linux support be as bad as with the last two bundles?

    Could be millions, until the HiBs are raking in at least $30-40 per game title there is very little to entice Valve to pursue it. 6 months of Valves production costs easily dwarf the complete income taken in with all the HiB's sales for all OS's combined.

    Yep.
    Code:
    chris@chrisl ~/games/hb3-2/CrayonPhysicsDeluxe % ldd launcher 2> /dev/null | grep /home/ | wc -l
    11
    chris@chrisl ~/games/hb3-2/CrayonPhysicsDeluxe % ldd launcher 2> /dev/null | grep /usr/lib32 | wc -l
    60
    chris@chrisl ~/games/hb3-2/CrayonPhysicsDeluxe %
    The needed libraries not packed with the game include:
    32 bit openssl (0.9.8!!).
    32 bit nas (yes. NAS!).
    32 bit libjpeg6.
    32 bit libtiff4.

    Have fun.
