Steam's Set Of January Greenlit Linux Titles
Posted , 22 January 2014 at 3:57 pm UTC / 5521 views
Another month and another set of titles have been greenlit by Steam, we have links to all of the Linux supported titles.

1heart - Point & Click adventure game.


4PM - A short, experiential drama game.


AR-K - An episodic point and click adventure game.


Between Me And The Night - Looks like a mix between puzzle and adventure.


Catlateral Damage - A first-person destructive cat simulator.


Chronology - A mind-bending mix of puzzle, adventure and platform game.


Dungeonforge - A swords-flying, action RPG game.


Dethroned! An action RTS.


Edge Of Eternity - 3D RPG.


Frozen State - An open world top-down survival game.


Heldric - The legend of the shoemaker - A sort of RPG/City builder hybrid.


Hero Siege - A hack 'n' slash with rogue-like elements.


Hunting Anubis - A single/multiplayer combat flight sim focusing on near future drone warfare.


I Want To Be Human - A gory looking platformer.


Infectonator : Survivors - A Randomized Permadeath Survival Simulator that combines RTS, Tower Defense, Roguelike, and Management-Simulation gameplay.


Influent - A 3D language learning game.


Insula - Looks like another FPS survival game.


Inverto - A first person shooter-puzzler with gravity manipulations.


Long Night - A third person survival horror game.


Love - A platformer.

Honestly kinda shocked this one got greenlight over many others, this game looks far far too retro and simplistic for my taste

New Orbit - A space game with realistic gravitation, custom ship building and a fully voiced story.


No Photos, Please! A local two-player stealth party video game.


Painters Guild - In Painters Guild you can make paintings, sell them and develop your guild into the greatest of the Renaissance.


Path to the Sky - A procedurally generated platformer/roguelike fusion.


Rain World - Only if it hits $50,000 on their Kickstarter.

I really don't think they should be allowed to list Linux in their platforms on greenlight if they aren't 100% commited, that really bugs me.

RymdResa - A space adventure game with RPG elements and a voice-acted story.


Skara - The Blade Remains - A free-to-play MOV -- Multiplayer Online Versus game.


SpaceEngine - A scientifically accurate and photorealistic 3D space simulator that models the entire Universe. 

Part of their first goal with it is to port it to Linux.

Storm United MMO FPS - HOORAY! I interviewed them, go check it out.


Time Rifters - Time Rifters is a single player co-op shooter where 'time rifts' allow you to be your own team mates.


Voice of Pripyat 3D - Online first person shooter in a stalker-style world.


An interesting list this month folks, what are your stand out games?

I wouldn't hold my hopes too high for Chronology... As soon as I discovered it on Greenlight I got very interested in it, but even though they must have included Linux to the platforms list, this is what they actually have to say about porting the game to our OS:

So, "they are looking into it". Make what you will of that.

"looking into it" = We don't know if its possible yet. But if it is then we might if its not too much effort for us.

I know the author was surprised that Love got greenlit because it seemed to retro.  For me, that seems to be half the charm, the other is that it looks to be a really tightly controlled game and can't wait to play it!

totally understandable , and is ok if it takes a while, but you should probably not announce linux (or any other type of platform), which you're not fully interested in doing the required porting work or at least know if the engine devs have mentioned any type of plans for linux support.

If its using opengl and maybe sdl, then most of it might be there. But any ideas what could be the hardest part?

anyway would be a pitty because looks like a really cool game and the story seems interesting.

So... they're releasing on Linux because "CryEngine supports Linux"? Since when? I was sure that CryEngine support was why Star Citizen was cagey about Linux support.

Crytek only posted jobs about Linux in July last year. Surely they're just suddenly "supporting Linux" already??
