Gaming on Debian GNU/Linux amd64 - pure joy. I like good soundtracks, interesting plots and gameplay, innovative ideas and all the feelings a game can let me experience.

well, I read all the info I could find here on Desura and on Achron's website and eventually talked to Achron's guys on IRC.

As it turns out, you should be able to go to your gifts page ("History" → "Gifts History" from Desura's client main menu) and find there your additional copy, which you gift to anybody by just click on "Send" (under the "Options" column) and then choosing your preferred method (Desura friend, e-mail, ecc.).

If you do not receive your gift copy, you shuold e-mail Desura support to have it delivered to your account.

Bought Achron a couple of days ago. Now just wrote to the Desura team about its gift key.
Let's see if they come up with an answer I can replay on Achron's page and on forums so people will know how to get the advertised extra copy.

can somebody please clarify how the gift key for a friend works?

I bought it and ran it fine but didn't know how to log in multiplayer, so I registered an account on achron's website but still no luck.
I redeemed the key here on Desura and assumed that's what I can give a friend to get the gift copy and that worked to download it after registering on achron's website, even if it was hard to find how (searching through their forum helped). The friend's registered account + key also allowed multiplayer login.

Now I'm still unable to log in multiplayer and wondering how I should do it...

Very good game, Linux missed a racing game a lot!

It definitely lacks Internet/LAN multiplayer support, which would be the best part!
Control is good, even if avoiding bumps on walls is difficult.
The music player is too much intrusive and needs to either be smaller or more transparent or put somewhere else.

I bought it and finished it a couple times (easy and medium) then got the reeper and fully upgraded it in some hours.. maybe too easy and short, given there is not network multiplay.

I like the graphics, sound and feel. What I'd do to make it a killer game would be slowing it down a bit or widening the tracks a little, making enemies a little smarter and absolutely add network multiplayer support.

Great work anyway, please continue improving it!

Please just don't stop on "We're sorry, but this game isn't available on Linux. If it is released we shall contact you. " A Linux user pays for the whole bundle and then gets ***one game out of four*** (or three out of six, counting bonuses).

We want to be contacted, we want those games released for Linux.
If they'll never get Linux support then please write so

moving games from common/games/ in to common/ fixed my situation

now double-clicking on a game I already had installed finds old files and asks me what to to: choosing to verify old files and install missing ones does what I would expect and in a few moments the game is back in "Ready" status

Double-clicking on the game re-downloads it all.
After gathering information it proceeds verifying files and then just goes on downloading.

side note: after clicking on the "Cancel" button on next try console pops up reporting "Failed to save item to db: database is locked". Install/download process doesn't change though.

I can't find the GUI part where I can add already-installed games anymore.

In fact, menu entries for "Tools > Activate Game CD key or Gift" and "Tools > Add Games Installed" bring the same GUI up.

Did that functionality get removed? Any CLI way of doing this?

While desura client is not starting anymore on my 64-bit Debian sid, I was playing trauma on my browser and it fully deserves every cent it costs.
Great great experience. Not only a gaming one, I'd bend it towards "consciousness entertainment".

Completed the main story, now on to the secondary objectives. Fun fact: while playing the fourth dream I completed every secondary ending prior to finding the main one.
Brief still very rewarding game.

Frozen synapse has some sound and solid gameplay!
Music is entertaining, reminds me of the electronic netlabel scene, something I deeply appreciate.

Great work Frozenbyte!!
Well spent money, once again :)

Hell, COGS is really nice, too!
Maximum graphics details, the right audio volume and pleasing soft mental tension for a guaranteed rewarding playing experience.

Enjoy! ;)

Installing nvidia-glx-ia32 and loading snd-pcm-oss lets me play zero ballistics with sound :)

VERY GOOD!

Redeemed all my humble indie bundle games and Hammerfight works perfect with desura, while it did not start when I tried the version from the direct humble indie bundle download.

This is how things should unfold,
keep up the good work!

been playing Trine yesterday and found it a really polished game!

simple controls, nice graphics, good sounds and interesting gameplay
..I found voices'volume to be too low, though and had to push other sounds' sliders really low

I had bought this game a while ago and never tried it so far, the humble indie bundle surprises me once more! :)

Today my old dual-core Opteron has been brought back to life, together with an nVidia GeForce 7800GS and a couple GB PC3200 RAM.. I guess this oldie can still be squeezed some fun out of!

looking forward to trying this platform on Linux (the only OS I can try this on, by the way)
