Steam Has Greenlit Another 37 Linux Games
Posted , 4 April 2014 at 10:38 am UTC / 18232 views
Steam is really bringing in the indies aren't they! They have pushed the button for another batch of titles to be greenlit, this time there are 37 100% confirmed Linux titles.

My Personal Picks
Kyn - A tactical RPG where you can take control of a troop of up to six warriors.


Topia Online - An interesting looking 2D MMORPG


Paragon - The fantastic looking space sim


Confirmed For Linux - Full List that prominently listed Linux as a platform
Air Control
Akane the Kunoichi
Always Remember Me
Anmynor Puzzles
Arson and Plunder
Boogerman "A Pick and Flick Adventure" 20th Anniversary
Cosmochoria
Date Warp
DUELYST
Elliot Quest
Epic Space
Evolution RTS
Flower Shop: Summer In Fairbrook
FRONTIERS Explore, Discover, Survive
Hero of the Kingdom II
The Hero Trap
Heroes of Steel

Joan Mad Run
Kyn
LEVEL 22, Gary's Misadventures
Lost Marbles

Wimp: Who Stole My Pants?
Windward

See the full list on Steam here.

An honourable mention goes out to AutoTileGen which was greenlit as well, it's not a game, but maybe useful for developers.

Valve have said eventually they will get rid of Steam's greenlight and make Steam a self-publishing platform, I wonder how long it will be until they do that. They will have to be careful when they do it too, since they will probably not be able to wipe all of greenlight as games just keep flowing.
I would imagine at some-point they will close greenlight for new applications.

What are you picks from this lot?

I would take it with a grain of salt. It seems there is a new trend of listing Linux as a supported platform on Greenlight page, but not delivering once greenlit.

Kyn, the first game, is my favorite in Greenlight the last week. I have high hopes for this game.

I hope Kyn will get on steam an will get Linux release. I think it is worth buying.

It seems like hardly any of these games actually get released on Steam. I ignore these greenlight batches for the most part now.

It doesn' matter anyway. Who wants to play such crap?

Add that to developers being unable to simply say no when asked about linux support in the steam forums... "We'd like to", "We're going to start looking into it", "We're very interested, definitely a possibility!", "Not for now, but we might after the steam boxes are released!". I don't know if a single one of those games has been ported...
They might as well say "No, there won't be any linux support, but we really want everything we say in the forums to sound positive, and we don't want you to lose interest in this game, even if you'll never really be able to play it!"
