The only game that doesn't have a Linux port yet is Vessel. Dustforce, Shatter and SPAZ, at least, are already at the Ubuntu Software Center.

By the way, they hit half a million dollars a few hours after launch.

Bought for DRM free SPAZ and Shatter goodness. Some indie games I've not got but was interested in is also a bonus.

Tried the linux version of Shatter out - it ran without complaining, which makes a nice change as many games I've had to go tweaking to get working, but a lot of textures appear to be missing. Blocks etc are all black. Will have to investigate/try on another system.

If I buy the Windows version, do I also get access to the Linux versions at no extra cost? I'm trying to move away from Windows for day-to-day use, so native Linux versions would be good; if I get problems however, it'd be nice to know that I don't have to pay anything extra to use the games under Windows.

Yup - you're paying for access to the bundle itself, which means you get the Windows, OS X and Linux versions included in the price - along with the soundtracks, and the inevitable bonus games they add next week.

Sweet; I'm sold then.

Well, as soon as I get home from work, that is!

Just tried out Shatter - it was worth the cost just for that game alone! So much fun!

I had it working perfectly, no missed textures at all... I did have to install a big pile of 32-bit libraries in order to get the game to run, but once it did run it was flawless. I was expecting so much more pain under Linux... (I'm using Lubuntu 12.04 and a Radeon 6770 card with the proprietary AMD drivers)

Vessel looks LOVELY, SPAZ will need more time to get into and Shatter is AWESOME.

It's worth buying for Torchlight, TBH... any one of those games goes for $6+ on Steam...

Hell yeah, Shatter is brilliant. Rochard is also quite good fun. I don't think I've even installed any of the other games yet...!
