Humble Weekly Bundle: IndieCade 2

Another weekly bundle is here for us all!
The Humble Weekly Bundle IndieCade 2 features 7 popular indie games, and 4 of them are available on Linux!
As always, pay what you want, get amazing games, redeem them on Steam if possible, and get also all the soundtracks!
Let's give a look at the games available for our favourite operative system!

- Cube & Star: An Arbitrary Love: Cube & Star: An Arbitrary Love is a colorfully-surreal open-world exploration game about life, joy and the pointlessness of existence. Enter a zen trance as you bring the grey world to life, painting the earth in your fool's errand to reunite the Ancient Cube and Star. Bounce and roll around the chequerboard world - eat fruit, nudge trees - stain the ground and thrill to the emergence of strange and curious creatures.

- LYNE: Deceptively simple. Infinitely complex. LYNE is a minimalist puzzle game that will knot your brain as it calms your soul. Connect the shapes. Fill the board. Lose yourself in the interflowing paths of LYNE.

- Proteus: Proteus is a game about exploration and immersion in a dream-like island world where the soundtrack to your play is created by your surroundings. Played in first-person, the primary means of interaction is simply your presence in the world and how you observe it. The procedurally generated islands are home to creatures natural and imagined, tranquil valleys and ruins with magical properties.

..And if you pay more than $8, you also get:

- Mini Metro (early access): In Mini Metro, you take on the task of designing the subway layout for a rapidly expanding city. Your city starts with three stations. Draw routes between these stations to connect them with subway lines. Commuters travel along your lines to get around the city as fast as they can. Each station can only hold a handful of waiting commuters so your subway network will need to be well-designed to avoid delays.

So, what are you waiting for? Don't be stupid and be quick, you still have 3 days! Booya!

Humble Weekly Bundle: Nordic Games 2

It's been a while, and i missed a lot of bundles, but hey, that's life!
This Humble Weekly Bundle features a lot of games by Nordic Games, but unfortunately, only 1 of them is available on Linux, and it's redeemable on Steam only if you pay more than $10.

However, let's see that game in detail:

- Deadfall Adventures: The year is 1938. James Lee Quatermain is a man of many talents, yet holding on to money isn't one of them. James is an adventurer by trade, just like his legendary great-grandfather Allan Quatermain. And he knows how to squeeze money out of this famous name of his, while at the same time despising it. Despising those who believe his great-grandfather's tales of the supernatural and those who make fun of them alike.

...And well, that's all.
If you pay more than $10 you also get some games for Windows (which, by the way, isn't that bad at all) and all the soundtracks.
But if you're a Linux user (and i think you are, if you are here) you're not gonna be so satisfied. So, you still have 1 day to get this game. Hurry up!

Another (Linux) game added to the Humble Jumbo Bundle 2
Hey there, good news!
Another Linux game has been added to the Humble Jumbo Bundle 2! (if you pay more than the average...)
The game is...

- Legend of Grimrock: Old school and modern gaming combines in this thrilling dungeon crawler RPG from Almost Human Games. A group of prisoners are sentenced to certain death by exile to the secluded Mount Grimrock for vile crimes they may or may not have committed. Unbeknownst to their captors, the mountain is riddled with ancient tunnels, dungeons, and tombs built by crumbled civilizations long perished now. If they ever wish to see daylight again and reclaim their freedom, the ragtag group of prisoners must form a team and descend through the mountain, level by level.

So, you know it, don't be stupid and be quick, you have 19 hours!

The Humble Weekly Bundle: Extra Credits

This week, this bundle is presented by the team of Extra Credits, which is a gaming reviews channel!
Unfortunately, for the second time in a short, it's a very poor bundle for Linux users. Again, there's only ONE game, and not so very cheap.

Not only you have to pay more than the average this time, but you also have to pay more than $15 to get this game, which is in early access on Steam.
The good thing is that it seems very funny. Let's see it:

- Hand of Fate: In a cabin at the end of the world, the game of life and death is played. Draw your cards, play your hand, and discover your fate. Hand of Fate is a hybrid roguelike/action-RPG/deck builder, in which the player builds a set of cards into a deck, which is then used to deal out the dungeon floors through which they adventure. Upon entering a combat, all of the cards the player has collected fly into their hands as fully modeled 3D assets, and combat begins.
Build your deck, enter the world of Hand of Fate, and prepare to face the Ace of Skulls.

Now, if you're a Windows/Mac users, the "pay what you want and get awesome games" formula fits perfectly. If you're a Linux user, i should say "pay more than $15 and get ONE-MAYBE-GOOD-MAYBE-NOT-SO-GOOD game in early access on Steam". That's just your choice. Do what you want, you still have 4 days to think about it!
