Humble Weekly Bundle - Support Opensource

Post by jack1974 » Thu Mar 27, 2014 6:25 pm

eight games made with opensource engines. I have Planet Stronghold on this one 8)
Buy it, or if you already have the games, consider spreading the word. Basically, all my games wouldn't exist if wasn't for open source engines like Ren'Py! :)

I've actually bought all the games (except for NEO Scavenger) in this bundle before either direct or on Steam or GOG. But I'll be sure to spread the word to people I know about it.

I'll spread the word around as well. Hopefully this also brings in more votes for Planet Stronghold on Greenlight.

Yes, I told the Humble guys if they can add a link to Greenlight, but they haven't replied yet. I suppose they must be quite busy now...
Anyway, PS on Greenlight went from 86% to 92% in a few hours, so here's hoping :)

Yay! I'll eagerly contribute to Ren'Py. And I'm also glad to see Planet Stronghold in a Humble Bundle. Specially in a no-DRM multi-platform one.

Yes basically the only version not available of that game is the iOS, but for obvious reasons :lol:

In addition to Planet Stronghold, I can also recommend the excellent Magical Diary. That is my favorite game by Hanako - great characters and wonderful art. Both are games where I can't wait to play sequels.

Personally I liked a lot Defender's Quest, a cool relaxing TD game :)

Okay, Humble Bundle reminded me why I don't like the platform - calling games Linux compatible is at least a white lie when the software is based on Adobe AIR (unsupported since 2011, the available 2.6 client is a security nightmare). Hence Defender's Quest is not working for me and the other interesting game (Neo Scavengar) was more promising than the actual gameplay.

But anyway, now I own PS' OST in a sensible format ;)

Haha sorry, I wasn't aware of those issues :)
Luckily Ren'Py offers a pretty good support for Linux!
