Humble Indie Bundle 6

In this bundle all games appear for the 1st time on GNU/Linux !

We all wondered why this game never had a GNU/Linux client although it supported MacOS and used OpenGL….so it finally comes to GNU/Linux – the excellent hack-n-slash game Torchlight is in this bundle  !

 

The games :

 

Torchlight

Runic Games

In this addicting fantasy action RPG, take on the role of a lone hero who uses brawn and magic to hack and slash their way through intense crowds of baddies while collecting awesome gear, loot, and skills. Set in the mining town of Torchlight, the hero sets out to explore dungeons and labyrinths to uncover a dark tale surrounding a mystical mineral known as Ember.

 

Rochard

Recoil Games

Suit up as John Rochard, the toughest man and miner in the galaxy. In this critically acclaimed side-scrolling sci-fi platformer, John Rochard must master the use of gravity, weight, and matter to overcome various obstacles and puzzles in his quest against an intergalactic archaeological conspiracy.

Rochard is also the premiere title to debut the Unity game engine on Linux! Unity powers a number of amazing titles and their presence on Linux can only broaden the horizons for cross-platform gaming everywhere.

 

Shatter

Sidhe

Shatter is a fresh take on brick-breakers, adding new physics-based concepts to alter the trajectory of every ball in play. Combined with an amazing soundtrack by electronic musician Module and intense boss battles, Shatter combines fantastic music with tight gameplay and frantic action.

 

Space Pirates and Zombies

MinMax Games

Explore the stars, outfit your own ships, and engage in intense combat in this top down space shooter by MinMax Games. Created by a two-man team, Space Pirates and Zombies is reminiscent of classic top down shooters then combined with modern elements like physics-based combat and randomly generated galaxies. Also, zombies.

 

Vessel

Strange Loop Games

In this liquid-manipulating puzzle platformer by Strange Loop Games, take on the role of Arkwright, the inventor of liquid-comprised automatons called Fluros, originally used throughout the world to make life easier for all. When the Fluros start causing random chaos, it’s up to Arkwright to step up and take command of his invention gone awry. Vessel is built upon an optimized “liquid simulation” featuring flowing water, scalding lava, steam, and more, making each puzzle a unique experience.

*Please note that the finishing touches for Vessel’s Mac and Linux debut are still being completed and should be ready in 24-72 hours. Additionally, Vessel does not have an external soundtrack like the other five games.

 

Dustforce

Hitbox Team

The world has been corrupted with dust and filth, and it’s up to a handful of acrobatic janitors to win the war on grime. In this frenetic, award-winning platformer by Hitbox Team, sweep your way through over fifty levels of wall rebounding, double jumping endurance runs where finesse matters as much as dust destruction. Vault your brooms even higher as you share and view replays online to compete for the ultimate speed runs, and watch as your dustpan runneth over when you build your own worlds and share them online with the included map editor.

Dustforce is the winner of the $100,000 Grand Prize at the Third Independent Game Developers Competition at the 2010 Game Developers Conference Online.

    So Runic finally kept its promise to port Torchlight to GNU/linux ?!

    It is a real port or are they embedding Wine ?

    The Humble Indie Bundle games always shape up to be a pleasant surprise. I’m glad Torchlight found its way to Linux. I for my part welcome the big-profile games on Linux with open arms.

    @zikzak The HumbleBundle site wrote about a “Torchlight Linux build”, so I guess it’s the real deal.
