How much would you pay for Five great Linux games?

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

How much would you pay for five really great Linux-compatible games? It really is up to you with ‘The Humble Indie Bundle’.

It’s an exciting experiment in online retail & distribution ” these games would normally set you back around $80 but in this promotion you can literally pay pennies (but don’t you think these games ” and the fact they’re Linux friendly ” at least deserves a bit more than that?). So far the ‘average’ price people have paid for the bundle is a relatively bargainous $7.88.

As of writing this offer is only open for 5 more days.

Where does the money go? With no middle man to pay it goes 100% to the developers themselves (and, in this case, optionally, charity) so being stingy with your cash isn’t the best way to reward the hard work and dedication involved. The games are also DRM free so no hidden catch or cripple-ware deadline is going kick in at a later date.

The Humble Indie Bundle comprises the following five games ” all available for Linux, Windows & Mac: –

  • World of Goo
  • Aquaria
  • Gish
  • Lugaru HD
  • Penumbra overture

If you’re not a gamer why not show your support for Linux game developers anyway and give the games to someone you know?
