      To the Moon's Mac/Linux engine is GPLv2 btw., for anyone that might care.

        That's nice. That makes me wonder, what about free games (OpenArena, UFO: Alien Invasion etc.) being part of HIBs? It would be a nice touch, and would benefit the developer teams.

          I think asking people to "pay" for essentially free games would make quite a few upset..

            Runner2 in Linux! Yay!

            I bought the bundle for bit.trip Runner2. Though not so melodious as runner 1. But still good game. And I am playing that on steam in fedora

              Really? Why do you think that? Please link to it, I am interested.

              I thought it was created with RPG Maker XP, which does not have a Linux version. The Linux version I know is based on Wine, which is open source of course, but it still runs the closed source RPG Maker.

              There is an effort called EasyRPG to create a open source RPG Maker engine, but it is nowhere close running complex games like this.

                Well, the "To the Moon" in the humble bundle is not a wine wrapper.

                EasyRPG is for playing RPG Maker 2000/2003 games, not XP or higher.

                  How so? If the page was clear that their share is a donation to an open-source project, why would anyone be upset?
