    I'm not entirely sure that graph is moving at all.

    I bought the pack yesterday for $20. I really hope more deals like this come out of the indie game scene after the success of this so far.

      Looks like the Linuxians are getting more numerous.

        I take that back, it is moving after all.

        I did think about powering up the GIMP and checking the pixels before posting that but I'm in the middle of studying (well, studying with the occasional lurking of forums).

            Well, that graph is certainly an indication to indie developers that the Mac+Linux market is important.

            It most probably does not translate to 100% to the top commercial titles (due to the sheer numbers if nothing else), but indie developers should be paying attention to Mac and Linux in the future, and this is a good thing.

              To get the rest of the Penumbra Collection

              I was waiting for my coupon code via email or some link to purchase the expansions at 75% off as advertised. Then I searched their forums and to get the rest of the collection for $5 you need to run the installer for Penumbra, the coupon code shows up there. FYI.

                Thanks for the graph comparison, I had some doubts about it not moving too. Linux actually has a surprisingly large share, I would have hoped/guessed for something like 10% at best.

                  You know that proves a point that there are SO many linux users out there. And even more proof that there are plenty of linux users who are also gamers. I really like the business model that has been applied to that indie game bundle. The front page really proves a point. Phoronix should do an article on it!

                    For those who are interested, the upcoming Amnesia - from the makers of the Penumbra series - is currently also under promotion: http://www.amnesiagame.com/

                    $10 instead of $20

                      That game looks really good!

                        It does indeed, but I'm a bit worried by the recommendation to use fglrx/nVidia blob.

                        Penumbra works great using free ATi drivers, though, so I'll probably wait to see if the demo runs on my machine before purchasing that one. Until then, I have the Penumbra series to work through.

                          Unless you're an open source nazi it's just common sense to use the binary drivers. <I do hope that will change someday>

                            Sorry, but switching between the open drivers and fglrx is a pain in the ass, and I'm not going to do it for one game.

                            At the moment, the open drivers do almost everything I need, and the things that are really important: stable accelerated desktop and video are much better than with fglrx.

                              its more easy using different linux installs.

                                Linux market share continues to increase.
