The Humble Bundle https://www.humblebundle.com/ decided to go full
retardWindows. You never go full Windows. Yes, THQ supported SOPA http://www.joystiq.com/2012/01/06/sopa-list-esa/
Steam on Linux and Humble releasing Windows only. Odd times, these.
Sorry, just needed to rant.November 29, 2012 at 5:52 pm #68315AmoParticipant
“We are hopefully going to raise a huge amount of money for charity and expose a ton of new customers to the Humble Bundle model. We have been debuting more games than ever for Mac and Linux (and Android � and even got to do the digital debut an eBook this year!) and this promotion will help us continue to do so. We are humbly hopeful that our customers will see this as a good thing instead of a permanent departure from what we have done and will continue to do.”

I can’t imagine what they were thinking. At this point i’m still in shock. Indie City is going Linux BTW http://blog.indiecity.com/?p=2227December 8, 2012 at 7:49 am #68325BlinkinellMember
There is also http://www.indieroyale.com/ which has a scattering of Linux titlesDecember 16, 2012 at 5:33 pm #68333EvilPenguinMember
THQ’s president Jason Rubin considering Linux support after Humble Bundle feedbackDecember 19, 2012 at 12:28 am #68336CarterSJMember
I think it was a good thing, I mean, it’s not like THQ is actually making that much these days. Stock was around $1 a share at the time the Bundle started. Besides, it puts games in the hands of gamers and money in the hands of charities, so who cares? The money to charity more than makes up for the lack of other platforms and the fact that it was a big-time publisher. It would be selfish to get upset because they didn’t support Linux in the latest one.December 19, 2012 at 1:27 pm #68339EvilPenguinMember
