    This is notable change. Now they are officially "just another bundle".

      This one is a Humble Indie Bundle - the change of the overall naming is because they now have other bundles too (like the THQ one). The other bundles are still "pay what you want" and a lot of the money goes to charity. I don't think it hurts the Indie bundles by having more of a good thing.

          Is the Grimrock Linux port available on Steam now?
          I purchased the Windows version some time ago.

              None of the HIB games are in the Steam beta yet. I guessing Valve wants to keep attention focused on a small set of games so it's easier to figure out general problems before having to deal with a lot of game specific issues.

                Michael, you missed the opportunity to state, that Dungeon Defenders is the first game for Linux, that uses the Unreal Engine 3 and SDL 2.0.

                And 1 min later, he posts the news. :-) Well, must have been ready while I wrote this post.

                  While they might not be advertised as on steam yet, I've activated Shank 2 and The Binding Of Isaac and they both started downloading content, not just the placeholder stuff like Braid etc.

                  Not sure about the others as I cancelled the at the d/l part in steam activation.

                    That's a known problem with Steam/Linux. Whenever you enter a serial then also Win games download. Best do not activate the download option and look later in your library.
