    It has Super Meat Boy... 'nuff said. If a future bundle includes Minecraft it will probably reach 1 million in 1 hour.

    Thumbs up I did it all for the bins

    Super meat boy and jamestown! I really wanted a linux jamestown - Steam/Wine were not doing it for me. I paid 15 dollars cause i thought i was just rebuying games for the bins but the rest of the games look sick, much better bundle then recent ones imho.

    Humble Indie Bundle #3 did include a limited Minecraft trial, not the same thing I know, but...

    I believe Stallman did mention to someone in an email correspondence that he was fine with games having proprietary game data, as long as the engine and game code are free. That said, he is not much of a gamer, and would never buy anything without a guarantee it would be free software, so I doubt he would ever be interested.

    Yea, they're all awesome games.. I just wish I could get more of them to run on my 6 year old laptop.. lol.. oh well.

    BTW, anybody notice that one of the game companies has ties to Electronic Arts? How much you want to bet that they made Humble Bundle drop EFF in favor of Red Cross? Electronic Arts hates the EFF with a passion.

    Does this bundle require steam? I really don't want a steam account and will not buy anything that requires it.

    PS. Slightly off topic but kinda relevant I guess. What's the deal with physical media purchased from a physical shop STILL requiring steam and an Internet connection these days, even single player games? If I buy something through steam, fine, but I have a disc... with data on it... but no. It installs steam and then proceeds to download the game... of which I have a disc... with data on it.

    Well not really. I've never bought anything that requires steam. However browsing titles today, five of the six titles I was interested in had steam as a requirement.

    "Does this bundle require steam?"

    no steam is just an extra but you can play all stuff without steam.

    Of course not!!! They provide direct downlod links.. They provide BitTorrent download links.. And they provide Steam download links..

    Currently no download links for Desura though, and someone said that Team Meat told them that they don't plan on download links for their game up on Desura.. which is a bummer, but anybody can just download it and burn a CD, the old fashion way.

    Why would you even need to burn it to a CD?

    I am not particularly fond of the Team Meat people though, given some of their comments about Linux in the past and this. I have nothing against Edmund McMillen himself of course.

    He sends an email to a wget daemon which downloads the page and emails it to him<1><2>. He only needs SSH if you want him to chill in your house, just don't buy him a parrot<3>.
