Humble Indie Bundle 7 has arrived – A Great Christmas Gift Idea

Oh to my surprise. Opening up my email early this afternoon and voila, the Humble Indie Bundle 7.

Pay what you want for The Binding of Isaac (and its DLCWrath of the Lamb!),ClosureShank 2Snapshot, and the documentary feature film Indie Game: The Movie (highly recommended by Linux Game News)! If you choose to pay more than the average, you’ll also get Legend of Grimrock and Dungeon Defenders (with a ton of DLC)! This bundle also comes with many fantastic soundtracks in lossless (FLAC) and MP3! gamegallery

Bundle buyers can also benefit the Child’s Play Charity and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, two marvelous non-profits doing phenomenal work on behalf of gamers worldwide. (Since the beginning of Humble Bundle, with your generous help, we’ve raised over $9.5 million for charity!)

Update December 20th, 2012:

Having purchased the Humble Indie Bundle 7, you might have taken note to the largest download yet in a Bundle, Dungeon Defenders, weighing in at 4.8GB.
During the process of extracting the file massive tar.gz file, I noticed a series of “udk” files passing by. What!?
Unreal Development Kit for Linux? Hold on a second. Performing a quick search for WINE libraries and expecting to see content resembling a “wrapper”, my efforts proved futile.
Could it be that we have our first native Unreal Engine 3 game on Linux?

Well, according to Ryan Gordon’s recent post on Twitter, this is indeed the case. “Dungeon Defenders is an Unreal Engine 3 game on Linux, and it’s the first thing I’ve shipped with SDL 2.0!”

Wow!! It finally happened.

Three years ago Ryan Gordon was expected to release Unreal Tournament 3 Linux client but was never permitted. Now the tables have turned for the better in the gaming community and we have native support.
With 2013 on our doorstep, hopefully we will see more progress in the way of Unreal games coming to Linux, officially.
