    Default Humble Indie Bundle 7 Launches, New Linux Games

    Phoronix: Humble Indie Bundle 7 Launches, New Linux Games

    Just in time for Christmas there is a new Humble Indie Bundle. Unlike the recent THQ Humble Bundle that were Windows-only titles, this new bundle is back to being cross-platform and DRM-free...

    This is notable change. Now they are officially "just another bundle".

    This one is a Humble Indie Bundle - the change of the overall naming is because they now have other bundles too (like the THQ one). The other bundles are still "pay what you want" and a lot of the money goes to charity. I don't think it hurts the Indie bundles by having more of a good thing.

    Is the Grimrock Linux port available on Steam now?
    I purchased the Windows version some time ago.
    BTW, awesome game!

    None of the HIB games are in the Steam beta yet. I guessing Valve wants to keep attention focused on a small set of games so it's easier to figure out general problems before having to deal with a lot of game specific issues.

    Michael, you missed the opportunity to state, that Dungeon Defenders is the first game for Linux, that uses the Unreal Engine 3 and SDL 2.0.

    While they might not be advertised as on steam yet, I've activated Shank 2 and The Binding Of Isaac and they both started downloading content, not just the placeholder stuff like Braid etc.

    Not sure about the others as I cancelled the at the d/l part in steam activation.

    That's a known problem with Steam/Linux. Whenever you enter a serial then also Win games download. Best do not activate the download option and look later in your library.
