It should be noted that (apparently all) of the games have serious problems with Intel graphics. This isn't advertised anywhere in the manual or the download page, so I just wasted $15 and a lot of download time for a whole lot of nothing. :|
It's spelled "definitely", not "definately". "Defiantly" is a different word entirely.

System requirements (including the fact that they won't work with integrated graphics) are mentioned for Trine and both Shadowgrounds games on their own websites, but not for Jack Claw and Splot, it seems.

Still, it's true that they should have mentioned the requirements for a system which can play all of the games.

Hmm, that's odd, they work on my Intel Mac. Though I'll admit that Shadowgrounds has a few annoying lag spikes and that at some point the cinematics no longer have sound, but aside from that the games work well.

Yeah, I noticed this. Fail on my part, as I should've checked. However, I still feel Humble should've mentioned this... On the last two bundles all but one or two of the games (out of all 11) worked fine on my comp.

EDIT: Via the Humble Bundle FAQ. Johndh, there's still hope for your $15.

Unfortunately integrated Intel chipsets will not be able to run the games. (Please email contact@humblebundle.com for a refund for your purchase in this case.)
Note it didn't mention Splot (the game coming out). Maybe there will be hope for it.
