Indie Royale New Year's Bundle

Indie Royale has launched The New Year's Bundle, their new collection of indie games. The Royale bundle starts with a low minimum price that goes up when customers pay the minimum and down when customers beat the minimum, which earns them a bonus as well as the respect of their peers. The new bundle consists of Nuclear Dawn, Max & The Magic Marker, Fractal, and Super Crossfire, and those who beat the minimum also get George & Jonathan's chiptune album Beautiful Lifestyle.

NightSky, from the second bundle, had a Linux version added recently. The Linux version only exists because it was part of the latest Humble Indie Bundle, and HIB actively require Linux ports, but it was added by Indie Royale as soon as it was available.

Also in the second bundle, Charlie Knight's games Scoregasm, and Irukandji and Bullet Candy Perfect (bonus inclusions to the bundle) all include Linux versions, and have since they were added to the bundle. Again, Charlie has always made Linux ports for his games, and these Linux versions were all pre-existing, but they did make them downloadable from the beginning.

So they don't have many linux games, and they don't spur the creation of Linux ports at all. And I don't really get the impression Linux ports factor into the decisions at all regarding whether to include a game or not. But they do still add the Linux port if it's available, even post-bundle.
