Canonical bringing new functionality to the Ubuntu Software Store by offering games from the Humble Indie Bundle

Canonical have just announced that the Humble Indie Bundle, a service offering packages of Indie Games, has been made available right now on the Ubuntu Software Centre. You’ll be able to download the individual games straight from the Software Centre after buying the bundle on the Humble Indie Bundle website.

You won’t be able to buy the games directly from the store – the bundle is normally sold with charity considerations that would make it impossible. The paid section of the software centre is still somewhat underused, but hopefully this new addition will mean it will be further developed.

For those not in the gaming scene, the Humble Indie Bundle offers a number of Indie PC games for any price you wish to pay. You can then select how much of the money you spent goes towards developers or charities such as Penny Arcade’s Childs Play. Currently on their fifth iteration, the available games include dark puzzle-platformer Limbo, cult favourite Psychonauts, and former mobile sensation Sword and Sworcery.
