Humble Bundle 9 Debuts 3 New Linux Games

fezfeatured

The Humble Indie Bundle 9 is finally upon us.  Finally?  Sure…  I honestly feel like I can’t go 1 week without buying something from the Humble Store…  In fact, I still haven’t finished reading all of the books from the last Humble eBook Bundle, let alone the games from Humble Bundle 8.  But who cares!  Each one is a great deal, and each one brings fun, value, and new games to Linux.  So, what’s in the bundle this go ’round?

Trine 2

Trine 2 is a side-scrolling action platform and puzzle video game developed by Frozenbyte. [3] It is the sequel to Trine and was released on Windows, OS X, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade on December 7, 2011 and for Linux on March 31, 2012. Trine 2 allows three players to play the iconic roles of a wizard, a thief, and a knight in a simultaneous cooperative mode. A Director’s Cut edition was confirmed during Nintendo’s conference at E3 2012, and was available via Wii U‘s eShop on the console’s launch day in all regions except Australia. The Director’s Cut edition is Frozenbyte’s first self-published title.

 

Mark Of The Ninja

Mark of the Ninja is a side-scrolling action stealth video game developed by Klei Entertainment and published by Microsoft Studios. It was announced on February 28, 2012 and later released for the Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Arcade on September 7, 2012. A Microsoft Windows version was released on October 16, 2012. It follows the story of a nameless ninja in the present day, and features a themed conflict between ancient ninja tradition and modern technology.

Eats Munchies Beta

A fantastic puzzle game for the whole family, Eets Munchies is a beautiful reimagining of the game that started Klei Entertainment. Featuring gorgeous animation, ridiculous creatures, and an amazing level editor, players help an adorable hungry creature devour cake in increasingly devious puzzles.

Brutal Legend

In Brütal Legend, play as roadie Eddie Riggs (Jack Black) as you rock out and lead a band of head-banging minions to defeat some nasty-looking demons. Featuring a cast of characters voiced and inspired by heavy metal musicians including Lemmy Kilmister, Ozzy Osbourne, and Lita Ford, the game is soaked to the bone with metal. Get ready to have long, luscious locks, larger-than-your head biceps, and a freakin’ awesome electric guitar that spits white lightning. And if walking is too slow for you, you’ve got a sweet ride to traverse the terrain quickly and plow through nuns and urchins and stuff.
