Humble Bundle, EA Games Dominate Ubuntu Download Chart for June

Humble Bundle in Ubuntu Software Center

The team up between Canonical and the Humble Indie Bundle folks has shook up the Ubuntu app download chart for June

Five of the top 10 paid apps – half the chart – belong to the Humble Bundle games, with LIMBO claiming the number 1 download position.

Bastion, Braid, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Psychonauts and Super Brothers Sword and Sorcery take positions 2, 4, 3, 8 and  10 respectively.

Two of the Humble Bundle’s seven games – Super Meat Boy and Lone Survivor - did not make the top 10.

Elsewhere, the only new entry not to be part of Humble Bundle is eBook ‘LibreOffice 3.4 Getting Started‘; and Journey Down: Chapter One moves up a place, no doubt buoyed by its recent 50% price drop.

Ryzom remains a popular item, sitting at 4 for the second month in a row and marking its 7th month in the top 10.

Amongst the new entries are ScreenCloud- a screen capture and upload tool that proved popular with readers when we reviewed it last month; IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition – a development IDE; and the popular Plex Media Server scores a strong 3rd position during its first month of availability.
