Update: I've purchased five bundles but will double each order amount when Desura keys are provided.


If you purchased the Humble Voxatron Debut, you can contact support and they may provide you with a Desura key for Blocks That Matter. I got one.

I generally pay more for the Desura option as well.


I'm also keen on the Desura keys. It's great to see companies like Introversion supporting Linux with great games but I really want to be able to manage my games centrally similar to Steam - and Desura provides that feature for me on Linux.

I've been paying $25 to $50 for the bundles but I'm certainly less inclined to buy them now that there's no Desura keys (as I run mostly in Linux). If Introversion can chat with Desura and get their games on there/offer keys then I'll be snapping the bundle up in an instant :)

Either way, although I am a bit disappointed, I do not regret the 25$ of my 45$ that went solely to you guys.


We might just be able to export using OGLE / GLintercept / 3D Ripper DX although I reckon that might be tricky.

Please consider including the source for the city generator or at least including generator from Part 7 of the All in your Head series.

I've read the Parish and Mueller paper a few times, but it's honestly a bit over my head. It'd be wonderful as a student of game design to be able to play with parameters and specifics in the source to see how it actually works.

I can guess some of the reasons you haven't included it, but if you could make available somewhere, that would be lovely.

EDIT: Also, well done. The Humble Bundles are always great, but this is my favorite so far. I have these games on Steam, but I'm grateful to have them available in Linux as well as the Defcon soundtrack.

On a side note, this is my third copy of Darwinia. Boxed, Steam, Humble Bundle.

Does anybody know why the Tech demos for Subversion don't work correctly. I started them both and they just go to a blank screen which requires me to restart my PC.

I dropped $25 on the HB, gladly, even though I own everything but Uplink. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE the source to the City Generator. I'd even pay extra for it.

Introversion staff please release your games on Desura. I have never bought any of your games, only played demos, but i will instantly buy this Bundle as soon as we have Desura keys.

Request for Desura support

After so many years of increasingly problematic GNU+Linux fragmentation, it's a wonderful sight to have something distribution agnostic like Desura, which is why it's a shame your games aren't available on their service.

As a Linux user, I would very much appreciate it if you offered your games through Desura and gave out keys to those who purchased the Humble Bundle. Steam isn't available for Linux, and Desura is a very good alternative, which can increase your revenue when the bundle is over.

As a human being, it is boring and annoying to see the same sentiment, no matter how valid it is, being regurgitated over and over again.
The above post is not intended as an attack on you. It's not about making you look stupid for not searching. It merely states the facts. Please don't be offended.

So since the games are now released as a humble bundle, does this mean that Multiwinia and Defcon now have a native Linux port, or is there a wine wrapper in their somewhere?
I already bought all the games and wouldn't mind donating to the humble bundle, but only if that means that there is some added value for me as a Linux user. I checked the introversion store again under my account but there wasn't any sign that multiwinia was now released on Linux...
Also, is Uplink updated? Since the last time I installed the Linux package I bought, there have been some problems with the old libraries in that package and the more modern distributions.

Some of us want to run Linux because we don't want to use Windows. And that can include not wanting to run Windows apps in any kind of emulator or wrapper.
