If they want to learn how to play chess, try Xboard and eboard. Comment: I wish chessbase could gift us with a Linux version of their products (fritz, chessbase, shredder, for instance), without having to use wine.

Phew! I was really worrying about the future there for a second. Nethack remains one of my standbys, and I firmly believe it's one of the greatest games (if not pieces of software) ever written. The Dev Team thinks of everything!

I've also been enjoying this terminal tetris clone, which is a fun break from messing around in the framebuffer.

They just added a game to the bundle too.

And it's SOOO worth it. Aquaria is one of the best games I've ever played.

The statistics on there are interesting:

Real-time Statistics
- Total raised $710,056
- Number of contributions 83,104
- Average contribution $8.54
Window$ $7.37
Mac $9.80
Linux $13.99

However, the greatest revenue still came from Window$, more than 50%.

Just downloaded all the games. I have just tried Penumbra, it works fine and you get an option to buy the entire trilogy at a bargain price.

Thanks for the link! I am in the process of buying the bundle now. What a cool thing of them to do, and it is nice to see Linux guys out in front in terms of generosity!

Yep Just purchased the set here too.

Great to see so much support for DRM free software.

I bought the trilogy some time ago and pre-ordred Amnesia. I've played the other games in the bundle, sadly goo and gish are not exactly my cup of tea. Plus to the best of my knowldge, Aquaria does not have a complete Linux port available at this time. It's been in beta for what seems like forever, though the beta is fully playable. Waiting on Overgrowth, the sequel to Lagaru! Given the price, and the fact that each dev can receive money from the bundle, it's an outstanding deal.

Caster is another indie game for Linux you should check out. http://www.elecorn.com/caster3d/

I'm intrigued, going to give this one a try. It looks good.
Thanks for the tip.

Thanks for pointing this out! I got them last night and it's worth every penny. Give generously!
