Three Days Left To The Humble Introversion

There's three days left to the Humble Introversion Bundle that offers up a collection of DRM-free, multi-platform games at whatever price you wish, but how is this Linux game sale performing?

As shown at HumbleBundle.com there is over $700k USD generated from 170k sales, which makes an average purchase price at just above $4 USD. (Linux gamers continue to contribute the most on an average price basis at $8.56.) The performance is relatively mundane and similar to that of the previous Humble Voxatron deal that happened just last month and not as impressive as some of the earlier bundles.

What the Humble Introversion Bundle currently offers is:

- The Uplink, Darwinia, DEFCON, and Multiwinia games.

- If contributing more than the floating average contribution price (currently at $4.10 USD), Aquaria, Crayon Physics Deluxe, and Dungeons of Dredmor are also included.

- For Windows users, also inckuded as bonuses is two prototype tech demos: Subversion City Generator and Voxel Tech Demo.

- The source-code to Darwinia, Multiwinia, DEFCON, and Uplink is now available to Humble Introversion Bundle customers.

That's where the Humble Introversion Bundle is currently at. In other Linux gaming news, Unigine Corp released OilRush v0.91 beta in time for anyone interested in weekend gaming.

OilRush will be officially released in January but any pre-order customers can access the latest beta now. This latest beta improves the GPU performance, adds a cinematic camera mode, fixes AI bugs, provides 3D Stereo support, enhances some visuals, and makes various game-play improvements. More details on this first multi-platform game from Unigine Corp can be found at OilRush-Game.com.
