Anyone downloaded it? How big are the installers, just wondering because I could buy it and download it from university network at 100Mbits againts homes 512kbits. And my laptop has limited capacity of storage(approx 10gigs free).
The Humble Frozenbyte Bundle is maybe 3-4 gigabytes per platform. Shadowgrounds is around 850 MB, Shadowgrounds Survivor 1.1 GB, Trine 650 MB (old stuff removal finally), Jack Claw 400 MB, and then there's the soundtracks.
Thank you. Are any of these game suitable for children(age 4 and 6)?
Here's the age suggestions:
Trine - 12 years (also younger ones can play with adult supervision, it's fantasy violence and lighthearted)
Shadowgrounds - 16 years
Shadowgrounds Survivor - 16 years
Jack Claw 16-18 years (not rated officially, but the most violent game of these)
Splot - 3-6 years (will take 2-3 months until the game is available)
So Splot will definitely be alright, and Trine might be ok if you're playing with them - there is fighting against skeletons and other creatures, so it's hard to say for sure and probably depends on the kids and their exposure to other media/games. The other games I wouldn't recommend for kids, they are violent.
The Intel situation is also a factor and has indeed prevented many people from enjoying the games (you can always get a refund from the Humble guys btw). This is something we most likely will never be able to fix unfortunately.
I think Intel and Gallium drivers are working now, if you're willing to compile Mesa from git master and install the S3TC lib.
You updated the Trine installer, but instead of fixing "undefined symbol: gdk_pixbuf_new_from_stream" now you require a newer GLIBCXX_3.4.14. What's the logic behind that when the game runs with lenny but the installer does not? Maybe ask Svartalf how to create a correct installer. Of course i can do something like that:
