      if you already got the bundle, there's no need to pay more than the average.

        Just bought the bundle for Oil Rush and Dear Esther. Thank you Humble Bundle! This and Steam (with Valve games and their contacts with developers of all kinds) is like the best thing that ever happened for the Linux Gamers!

          Oil Rush looks neat. Unfortunately requires a bit of coaxing to get it running on Intel [GL & GLSL version overrides], and then has some shader issues, but it's playable if you squint into the darkness, and perf is fine [on IVB]. I guess I've got some work to do...

            How did you get it to run? I get a GLXBadFBConfig error on SB x64.

            Edit: oh, adding

            export MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.2FC MESA_GLSL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=150
            at the top of launcher.sh appears to work. I have xorg-edgers drivers.

              Wait what? Oil Rush on HIB? That is starting to sound interesting.

                Oil rush also caught my eye. I've seen a review of "Thomas was alone" but according to the review, it was a little too easy. Most of the other games don't interest me enough, though I wouldn't say the bundle trailer does a good job at presenting them.

                  The addition of the extras was enough to put me over the edge... Now I've got even more games that I don't have enough time to finish :/

                    Oil rush was a very big plus on this bundle. Little Inferno is great. I was pleasantly surprised with some of the others, thomas is alone for example.

                          Same - I haven't got around to playing Dungeon Defenders yet, and I barely played Shank 2. I got past 3 levels in Shank 2 but didn't enjoy much - the game is well made but it isn't my cup of tea. My main complaint about it is there's too many controls for something that demands quick reflexes. There's basically 5 different attack buttons, and while their existence can be justified, that's just a little too much when you consider that you also need to worry about dodging and aiming.

                            I don't know, I found Shank 2 to be entertaining enough to play it through once. Maybe it's just me but I actually enjoy precise control schemes, especially since the game lets you configure the controls the way you want, and also you don't have to use every attack in every situation. I like it much better than control schemes where you have to use awkward combinations of a few buttons.

                            One thing I hate though, is the tendency of games these days to assume that you're using an xbox-type controller, up to the point where buttons are named according to the xbox naming scheme - what's up with that? Xbox controllers are pieces of shit, the d-pad is crap for any game requiring accurate controls, such as platformers or fighting games... In Bastion, I couldn't even configure all buttons because the game assumes an x-box controller and thus doesn't even recognize all the buttons in my generic ps-style gamepad and the game wouldn't allow using keyboard + gamepad at the same time... well, I managed to play it through anyway.

                            Dungeon Defenders I still haven't really tried, mainly because I can't find 3 other guys to play it with, and playing a co-op with random strangers doesn't seem like it would necessarily work out all that well...

                              I use the original xbox controller (I cut off the tip and re-wired it to be USB) so the lack of the 2nd pair of trigger buttons makes Shank extra hard. You can play DD alone, btw.
