Yup.  Lugaru source posted (though Windows is a bit behind the other two), Aquaria, Gish, and Penumbra forthcoming.  Deadline's been pushed back to Friday, too, for those of you who haven't gotten to it yet.

Licensing vagaries: Lugaru's under the GPLv2.  That covers the engine but not the game content -- like Doom or any number of other games that have had their source released over the years.

No info on the rest, but I expect they'll probably have similar terms.  The main page guarantees they'll at least be under free-as-in-speech licenses.

4 of these games are now free.

Edit: nevermind, this has been said. I'm stupid.

Coincidentally, I was going to start writing a new engine to replace my died-in-a-fire one tomorrow.

Timely!

In similar news, the narrative based co-op game Sleep is Death is now pay-what-you-want

That game actually looks pretty awesome.

In a "dungeons and dragons minus combat" sort of way.

Aquaria and Gish source have been released too.  Both GPL though they don't state which version (Gish links to the GPLv3 page so that might be a safe assumption).

Interested parties probably knew this already, but they're sending out codes now to get your games off Steam if you bought this.

I redeemed this. Finally, I no longer have to keep track of that Aquaria installer I got when I bought the game directly from the developer!

I did not!  Hm, don't see anything with "humble" in the subject line in my spam folder, either.

Course, I don't actually have much use for running them on Steam inasmuch as I can run them from Linux without rebooting, but I'd still like them in there.

Finally, I no longer have to keep track of that Aquaria installer I got when I bought the game directly from the developer!

I'm pretty sure the devs wouldn't begrudge you torrenting it if you already paid for it.

The new Humble Indie Bundle: Braid, Cortex Command, Machinarium, Osmos, Revenge of the Titans.

I just lost my friggin' job, so I doubt I'll be able to put down as much as I did last time, and I still haven't PLAYED the bulk of the games from last time anyway.  But I'm still tempted.

15 dollars later...

Osmos: clever design and soothing ambience, but feels a little too shallow and slow-paced for me. Not awful but I don't see myself firing it up again, I've got better things to do with my time.
Machinarium: tried the demo way back when, decided it's the kind of game that frustrates me, but at that price I'm giving it another shot.
Cortex Command: work-in-progress, lots of potential (feels like Worms crossed with a RTS, resource gathering and all) but it's incredibly fiddly right now. Maybe I just need to get used to the controls.
Revenge of the Titans: fast-paced tower defense with persistent finances and an interesting tech tree concept, probably the most fun I've had with the bundle yet. I love the art style, it's crazy slick.
Braid: is Braid.

EDIT: Oh, and, I don't see this on the page, but you get the Machinarium, Osmos and RotT soundtracks as well. I wouldn't have sought them out on my own, but hey, bonus.

Cortex and Revenge of the Titans are still in development, so it's probably not just you.

no it's just a game where sometimes you walk left to  right and your leg snaps off and you bleed to death

but i remember playing around with it and at time the stuff the physics engine does makes me laugh until my gums bleed

Ironically, this makes me more inclined to try it out.
