Killing floor free on humble bundle

killing floor is free on humble bundle for a day

good wave based fps game that runs awesome on linux except for 2 bugs. nvidia users get glitched out textures on some things it doesn’t affect the game in a negative way(actually we can see stuff that are meant to be invisible so lil cheaty :p) just an annoyance and if you download mods(like votemap/etc) you can not earn any xp to your level. this is fixable by clearing out the cache folder and installing those mods properly.
