Steam Has Greenlit 39 New Linux Games At The End Of April
Posted , 30 April 2014 at 5:28 pm UTC / 10658 views
Wow Valve is on a roll for Linux gamers aren't they! 39 more Linux games have been lit up to be included on Steam's store.

My choice picks

A very hard call this time as so many great projects, but here are my personal top choices!

Grave

Grave is a first person, open world survival horror experience. Explore an ever-changing world filled with frightening creatures.

KartSim

KartSim is a multiplayer kart racing game with sandbox stunt driving and serious racing game modes.

Neon Shadow

Neon Shadow is a first person shooter that aims to revive the “run and gun” gameplay of shooters from the 90′s. You play as an agent sent to deal with malfunctioning cybernetics on a space station.

The Universim
Already covered The Universim here, looking really great.

These games below prominently listed Linux as supported platform, let us hope they all delivery on it.

I'm really looking forward to kartsim, voted for it as soon as I saw it in Greenlight.

Source and The Universim both catch my eye. Spy Chameleon looks fun but I don't know if it's the sort of game I'd normally play. Voxel Quest (pending name improvement) has potential, certainly worth watching.

And let's face it, Woodie Tree Adventures is cute as hell.

What a list! I've never heard of any of them.
When are they going to start allowing Windows games, that work perfectly on WINE, in the Linux Steam client?
When they wake up sufficiently to do that I'll be interested.

That's an interesting stance. I'd prefer they never did so. It may incur apathy from future devs to support Linux directly, resulting in a sub-par experience.

Well I think that supporting games on Linux through wine may be a double edged sword. On one hand many people may change to Linux because there is more games working with it, and more devs will develop for Linux because more people are using it. On the other hand because games are working with wine and ported over using wine many devs may think there is no need to make a native Linux client.

Either way however I am happy because now games are coming to Linux in one form or another.
