UPDATE: Less than a day left, so get in before it is too late!
Wolfire's indie game pack, The Humble Indie Bundle is back with 5 games from Frozenbyte. As per usual there will be no DRM and we are humbled that Desura will again be helping to distribute the purchased games!
You can pay what you want and even donate part of it to help charity (Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child's Play). The big titles included are:
All of the games but Jack Claw will be release for Linux, Mac and Windows. But the Jack Claw source code will be published, so there are good chances that it gets ported by the community.
*i think it froze my computer..... i am very sorry to hear that sir.... xD* nuff said
I don't get it. @.@
look at the chat at 2:43 in the video. :)
Bought it. Downloading Trine. Redeemed on Desura.
Now to keep waiting for the Desura Linux client so I don't have to keep all these games updated by myself :p
Glad that Humble Indie Bundle is back and we can redeem on Desura too =)
I thought the first humble pack was the best by far. This isn't to bad, trine looks great but others don't look particularly exciting. May just buy it for trine :D.
I agree !!! The 1st one was awesome the 2nd was......okay.....but this ones only interest is trine.
Shadowgrounds is amazing.
I've brought 1 bundle I don't need (as a test), so if you want it tweet @desura and link to it here. And i'll send you the key to redeem these games on Desura. Will pick the person at random in exactly 24hours...
My as well try my luck :Phttps://twitter.com/#!/Arkage Either way i'll probily end up geting them, assuming my top up will arrive at pay pal soon enough.
I am interested too :)https://twitter.com/#!/Ulbri
Luck has been tried.
I guess I'll try also!https://twitter.com/#!/DrSkittlesworth
Are you lot really that cheap that you cant even donate to charity for these...
The humble bundles are the best! Too bad I'm not old enough to have a paypal account ;_;. Twitter.com
Awesome, I think I'm going to buy.
Bought it! Waiting for Desura Linux version!
It's actually 3 games (4 if you count the promise of a future game, which is fine.) Jack Claw isn't a complete game and won't be.
Actually, it looks like Jack Claw WILL be a real game... more or less.... eventually. Really it depends on if there becomes a community behind it.
I see no reason NOT to get it! If only for helping out charities and the good people who host these. However, I thought the Trine demo was excellent - excited to play it in full. There's always room for a top-down shooter here, too!
I feel soooooo evil.
Trine for Linux! I guess I'll be late to work tomorrow. I was really working hard on getting to sleep early.
None of the games work on my Mac. The first Mac games I have trouble with.
Bought and donated :)
You guys are the best!
Sorry guys , but his is the first " indie " pack , i don't want in my collection .
It's a shame a lot of people are paying so little :P Although the possibility is there to do so, so no one can blame them of course :P And 'something' always beats 'nothing' ;)
lol epic "narrator"
Its a very good Bundle. My favorite Game is Trine.
Donated 50 USD, gotta do what you can to up those stats. :)
Just installed Trine so far, damn this is awesome.
ive bought all 3 bundles, and i will continue to buy the bundles as people support them.
I already own the games on steam, but I RECOMMEND THAT PEOPLE GET THEM!!
Trine is a platformer (with physics!).
Shadowgrounds is overhead view shooter.
Alien Breed, Alien Swarm)from a top down diablo 2 perspective.
I recommend the first three games, dont know much about the others lol.
starting to sound like gog.com now...I liek!
DRM-free, pay what you want (radiohead model, lol?) and CROSS-PLATFORM SUPPORT! omg!
Ive been installing ubuntu and edubuntu on workplace laptops, and is discovering linux-based OS-systems for myself now, so I like that alot.
none of these games run properly... shadow* don't launch. trine cannot save.
assuming you've either gone full retard (on mac or windows), or don't know how to linux (still full retard)
already grape it
i loved trine so good game
Ive never heard of the humble Bundle before! This was awesome All those games for so cheap! when will the next bundle happen?
Your best bet for knowing when the next Humble Bundle will come out is to get on their announce mailing list so they email you when the new Humble Bundle is announced. They don't have a scheduled release cycle because game companies have to sign up for it and all the games have to be for Linux, Mac and Windows or they can't be a part of the bundle, oh and no DRM (copy protection) either.
I think Jack Claw skated by on the last bundle because it wasn't a full game and the source code was released in the bundle for it. I thought they were going to work on eventually porting Jack Claw to Linux and Mac and release it for everyone. If Frozenbyte doesn't I am sure someone out there will port it eventually to Linux and probably Mac.
Can't buy it, redemption doesn't work on Lockerz=(
I grabbed my bundle the moment it came out. That makes the 3rd Humble Bundle I have bought. I just wish we could easily get updates for it.
I might mention that Ryan "Icculus" Gordon mentioned in a talk at a conference that a lot of companies are dying to get in to the bundle but they don't have a Linux version or a Linux and Mac version so he and others are getting overloaded with requests for porting. You watch the clip of his talk online here:
I don't know how many of you saw this. It looks like Frozenbyte did do a Linux version of Jack Claw. I just downloaded it off the Humble Bundle website using the link they give you for your purchase. They ported everything (game & editor) over to Linux for Jack Claw and released the ported source code as well.
thx for sharing
