The Humble Bundle people have outdone themselves with their latest, Humble Indie Bundle 12.  They have 10 excellent games available – all of which work on Linux!

The games included in this bundle are:  SteamWorld Dig, Hammerwatch, Gunpoint, Prison Architect (Early Access), Papers, Please, LUFTRAUSERS, Gone Home, The Bridge, Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine, and Race the Sun.  Of these games you can pay what you want for SteamWorld Dig, Hammerwatch and Gunpoint.  Pay More than the average ($7.82 as of this posting) and you can unlock Papers, Please, LUFTRAUSERS, Gone Home, The Bridge, Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine, and Race the Sun.  If you pay $10 or more, you can unlock Prison Architect.

For the first time, Humble Bundle has made merchandise available.  If you pay more than $65, you can unlock the Humble Indie Bundle 12 Entertainment System, containing a 30-page issue of HIB Informer Magazine, two lapel pins with the Humble Bundle logo and Arstotzka Crest from Papers, Please, a HIB 12 Super Shirt, a HIB 12 Shareware 3.5″ floppy disk, the HIB 12 EP on vinyl and a collector’s box for all of this.  As noted on the Humble Bundle website:  “Yes, there is a vinyl record and 3.5″ floppy disk in this package.  For real, not a joke.  If you don’t know what either of those things are then go ask your parents or the Google.”

The Humble Bundle people have brought out the Humble Jumbo Bundle, a collection of six games with more to come.

If you pay more than the average price, you will also get get Orcs Must Die! 2: Complete Pack, Serious Sam 3: BFE and Garry’s Mod.   (Right now, the average is $4.15.)  All of the games are redeemable on Steam for Windows, with Natural Selection 2, Garry’s Mod and Serious Sam 3: BFE also available for Linux.

Buyers of the Jumbo Bundle can also choose how they want their purchase allocated: to the developers and/or two charities, Watsi and Child’s Play Charity.

On the latest Humble Bundle weekly sale, you can pay what you want for Closure, Jamestown, Shatter, and SPAZ DRM-free on Linux as well as Windows and Mac.  If you pay $6 or more, you can also unlock Dungeon Defenders and Defense Grid Gold.  (Defense Grid Gold is only for Windows.  Dungeon Defenders is also for Linux.)

As always, you can choose how you want your purchase money allocated, between the developers, Child’s Play and the Electronic Freedom Foundation (EFF).

The Humble Bundle Store and the Humble Weekly Bundle

Recently, the Humble Bundle people have started the Humble Bundle Store.  This is not like the traditional or weekly Humble Bundles.  A new set of games are available each day.  However, the prices are already set, although deeply discounted.

The list of games available on the Humble Bundle Store includes games for Linux, PC, Mac or Android.  There are more  games than would be in a regular bundle or weekly sale.  Ten percent of proceeds go to charity.

Of course, in addition to the new store, there are always the original Humble Bundle and the weekly Bundle.  Right now, the weekly Bundle contains two games for Linux:  Air Conflicts:  Pacific Carriers, and Expeditions:  Conquistador.  (The last one is available if you pay more than $6 for the set.

Humble Indie Bundle 9

Humble Indie Bundle 9 is now available.  The bundle features six games. Pay what you want and get the beautifully colorful magical action-puzzle platformer Trine 2: Complete Story; the side-scrolling stealth game Mark of the Ninja; the physics-based puzzler Eets Munchies; and the heavy metal action/adventure/RTS rocker Brütal Legend. If you pay over the average, you’ll also receive the award-winning space strategy sim FTL: Faster Than Light and the critically acclaimed puzzle platformer FEZ.

I have already played FTL.  It is an intriguing game – hard but satisfying.  I also own Trine 2 but have not gotten to it yet.  This bundle is worth-while even for those games alone!  The others are magnificent icing on the cake.

All of these games run on Linux as well as Mac and Windows.  If you pay at least $1, you will get Steam keys.
