Since the Humble Endless RPG Lands Bundle launches with some Linux and Ubuntu, besides just Windows. There are games with entire worlds to create, explore, and conquer in the Humble Bundle. While just getting lost in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Wurm Unlimited or Borderlands 2 + DLC. Maybe even explore Guild of Dungeoneering, which only has Mac and Windows support, hence Wine. So with over 300 average hours of playtime combined. There are some entertaining games in the mix. Such as The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut wich works really well via Wine.

While I’m not a huge fan at the lack of native support. There is some solid Linux and Ubuntu support in the mix. And for the average price, it’s not too bad. Even if it means running WINE for the remainder of the titles in the bundle.
