The Humble Indie Bundle 11

Welcome again, it's time for a brand new Humble Indie Bundle.... The Humble Indie Bundle 11 is here!

Another great bundle, but let's see which games are contained into this one:

- Guacamelee! Gold Edition: Guacamelee! Gold Edition is an amazing combination of platformer and fighter, set in a magical Mexican inspired world.

- Dust: An Elysian Tail: Immerse yourself in a gorgeous hand-painted world on a search for your true identity. As the mysterious warrior, Dust, your action-packed journey will take you from peaceful glades to snowy mountaintops and beyond.

- Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams: Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is a blistering hardcore platformer with contrasting worlds. Warp Giana's vivid dreams to alter your abilities and destroy the twisted creatures lurking within.

- The Swapper: Winner of numerous awards and accolades, The Swapper is an atmospheric puzzle-platformer set in the furthest reaches of space. Players wield an experimental device able to clone the user and swap control between them.

Be careful, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is not available for Linux yet, but it will be later this year (they say...).
And, if you pay more than the average price ($4.58 now) you also get:

- Antichamber: Antichamber is a mind-bending psychological exploration game where nothing can be taken for granted. Discover an Escher-like world where hallways wrap around upon each other, spaces reconfigure themselves and accomplishing the impossible may just be the only way forward.

- Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine: 2010 IGF Grand Prize winner Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine is the co-op heist game of your dreams. Assemble a crack team of thieves and execute the perfect crime.

All games are redeemable on Steam for Linux, you also get all the soundtracks, and more games are coming real soon! So, what are you waiting for? Don't be stupid and be quick, you still have 8 days!!!

A bit of update..

Hi everybody.
I'm here to give you some important updates about my situation right now.
Maybe you don't know me enough, so i want to give you some infos about me. I'm 27, i graduated last november and i'm looking for a job, which is quite difficult in Italy right now.
The last 3 months have been pretty tough and hard for me, since my girlfriend's family has been in a lot of troubles.
That being said, life has changed drastically for me, i don't have so much spare time as months ago, as you can see with my delayed updates on this blog and on youtube.
So, what's the conclusion? No, i'm not going to close this blog or any other UGP channel, but i must change something.
The first thing is that i'm going to concentrate more on my youtube channel (see below for all my links) which takes me less time, so expect more videos and less blog news.
Secondly, i'm not going to do comparisons between Ubuntu and Windows anymore, i'm just going to tell you how to install and how to play games on Linux, with some infos about the performances (average framerate).
These changes are necessary for me, because as i said, i don't have so much time to dedicate to all of this anymore, but i don't want to quit since i love Ubuntu Gaming Project.
I also want to take this chance to thank ALL OF YOU, for your support and for your patience.
I've just reached 200+ subscribers on youtube, which is a great, great thing for me.
Now, the last thing. I want to remember you all my links...


So, thank you again for everything, keep following me, i won't let you down, i promise!
