To answer your question directly, yes, it works on Mint, at least on Mint 13 that I'm currently running.

Steam keys for Humble Bundle games can be used for the Linux versions, though not all HIB games have made their Steam Linux debut yet.

Also if you happen to have an old Valve game that has had a Linux release you can use the registration number to get the native port via Steam.
