Since we are familiar with Valhalla Hills, it’s epic to see the game listed in the bundle. While Legends of Eisenwald is a surprisingly expansive medieval strategy, but not native support. And we already know that The Journey Down is a great point-and-click adventure but it gets even better at the “beat the average” price. And the moment is still the best choice with Turmoil, Jotun, and Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide.

So your money will also buy you the Turmoil soundtrack. Along with ten percent off a new subscription to Humble Monthly and more games that will be revealed in a week. The Humble Jumbo Bundle 8 itself will be around for two weeks, which means everyone can get in on the action until March 21th.

Pay what you want. Normally, the total cost for these games is as much as $143. But at Humble Bundle, you still choose the price!

DRM-Free and on Steam. All of the games in this bundle are available on Steam, with some are also DRM-free.

Majotori violent trivia games new trailer video releases

majotori violent trivia games new trailer - Linux, Mac, PC

So we recently came across Majotori, a somewhat #violent #trivia #game coming to Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Hence the games collection of tales will have players interacting by playing trivia. Some of the outcomes take a harsh and certainly violent turn. Since a witch appears to some of the games characters. So after they make a wish, the witch offers to make it come true. All they have to do is play a game of trivia game with her.

Majotori has a Carefully Crafted Selection of Questions. Some of the subjects include a focus on video games, cinema and animation.

Majotori Features:

  • 50+ branching storylines

So Majotori is the first major project developer Majorariatto is shipping. And I have to admit, the gameplay looks impressive. While not be confused with the character models, the nature of the trivial would be great something like livestreaming. A creatively fun but still interactive style of gameplay.

Majotori will be available on Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows PC on March 28th.

The Games Story

So in Night In The Woods, college dropout Mae Borowski returns home to the crumbling former mining town of Possum Springs seeking to resume her aimless former life and reconnect with the friends she left behind. But things aren’t the same. Home seems different now and her friends have grown and changed. Leaves are falling and the wind is growing colder. Strange things are happening as the light fades.

Mae’s a cat so the roofs and ledges and powerlines are all her playground, and she’s not the only one up there by a long shot. You’ll also be doing various activities in Night In The Woods.

This isn’t an empty world- it’s packed full of people, places and things just waiting to be found, along with lots of stuff to do. Hence all of which are different when night falls and you venture out into the empty streets to unravel the mysteries of Possum Springs.

And there’s something in the woods.

Mind-Machine Interface puzzle programming on Greenlight

mind-machine interface now on greenlight and coming to linux

So Mind-Machine Interface is a #programming #puzzle game for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. While players do create a program that transform a data package (consisting of numbers and/or pixels). Yet designed for an output that meets the specifications provided.

While the puzzle programming part is figurative. Since players will be using functional blocks and wires on a grid to transform the games ugly inputs. Hence transforming the outcome into pretty outputs (in the spirit of Spacechem, Shenzhen I/O or Tis-100).

Since puzzles are challenging and open ended. Hence players will have to duplicate an image, create a bouncing ball program. Or yet, path find algorithms, repair a corrupt image, etc.

“There will be Mac and Linux versions of the Demo and game. The demo is available on Windows only, for now.”

Players can compare you score with other testee’s looking at you cycles and objects count for each level.

Everything is set in a futuristic environment and you are an engineer seeking for a job, so you must pass this field aptitude test to qualify. Decipher a futuristic language along the way!

Mind-Machine Interface is currently on Greenlight. Developer Izark is gathering feedback to improve gameplay and release on Linux, Mac and Windows PC.

There is a demo available on the Greenlight page to challenge your puzzle programming skills. Making Mind-Machine Interface deserving of a place in the Linux games catalogue.
