Humble Bundle Weekly Sale and Note on Steam

This week’s Humble Bundle weekly sale features three games by Klei Entertainment:  Shank, Shank 2, and Eets.  Shank and Shank 2 are available on Linux as well as Windows and Mac.

As always, these games are pay what you want.  If you pay $1 or more, you get free Steam keys so you have the option of redeeming the games on Steam.

For the last few months, Steam has only been getting about 1.3 percent of their users from us Linux people.  We need to start redeeming our Linux games on Steam so they know we support them.   It won’t cost money to set up a Steam account.  They do, however, make available 200+ games, only some of which end up in Humble Bundles.

The first couple of months I redeemed games with their Steam keys, it appears that I got a link to the Windows version (not a problem for me because I also run Steam for Windows, but that requires dual-booting).  Valve seems to have fixed the problem – now, Steam keys for Linux games point you to a Linux download.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness
    and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a fantastic
    job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me
    on Opera. Exceptional Blog!

      Thank you for becoming a new reader.
      Humble Bundle sales change so often that it’s just best to watch them and buy bundles where you like at least one of the games. Steam sales can also be great. GOG.com has recently started providing Linux games as well.
