Humble Bundle is best-known for its pay-what-you-want bundles, but has now launched something a little less fleeting: the Humble Store. The permanent storefront will sell games for Android as well as PC, Mac, and Linux. It all kicks off with a sale on nine games, including Don't Starve, Gunpoint, and Rogue Legacy.

Cellar Door Games is close to releasing the Mac and Linux versions of their chivalrous roguelike, Rogue Legacy. The studio has told Shacknews that it is splitting their upcoming patch into two pieces to help expedite the process. In addition to bringing the game to new platforms, the first patch will also add save slots, which will allow multiple friends to forge their family tree on a single computer.

Product Release - Valve
Rogue Legacy is Now Available on Steam


Rogue Legacy is a genealogical rogue-"LITE" where anyone can be a hero.

Each time you die, your child will succeed you. Every child is unique. One child might be colorblind, another might have tourettes-- they could even be a dwarf.

That's OK, because no one is perfect, and you don't have to be perfect to win this game. But you do have to be pretty darn good because this game is HARD. Fortunately, every time you die all the gold you've collected can be used to upgrade you manor, giving your next child a step up in life and another chance at vanquishing evil.
