It's Not All Roses For The Latest Humble Bundle

Filed under
Gaming

Last week marked the start of a new Humble Indie Bundle, but there isn't as much interest among gamers this time around.

This newest bundle, The Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle, is similar to previous HIBs: you pay what you want, the games are cross-platform, and there is no DRM (Digital Rights Management) restricting the user. But this newest bundle isn't nearly as popular as some of the past bundles, most of which have generated more than one million dollars (USD) in less than two weeks and even two million dollars.

This bundle has actually resulted in some complaints among gamers. Most of the complaints seem to boil down to just one game being officially part of this bundle: Frozen Synapse.

This weekend I tried out Beignet v0.9.2 as trying out the newest Intel OpenCL code has been on my TODO list for a while and it's been working out rather well in my initial tests. Read more
