So rather than spamming everyone's feeds here is a list of some recently released Linux games on Desura, three of which have a native version to buy and a further one comes with the source which you can use.
First up is Amazing Paulsonothon

Also noteworthy, I spoke to the developer of Zeitgeist - The Puzzle Game
about a Linux version:
QuoteI am not going to port it to Linux, but the game installation contain the sources, so feel free t o port it. The Windows version has been made with MinGW and Qt, it's all GPL.

The Linux games are flowing through all channels right now and I don't ever expect it to slow down and neither should you!
It's good to see Desura not slow down on the releases that support Linux, after all it looks like it's far easier to get your games onto Desura than Steam. It's a shame they don't officially support the developers working on the open source Desurium
client as the official client is far too buggy for me to use.
When I say officially support I mean by having a paid developer help out, progress is rather slow.
Hopefully we will one day see a polished up client for Desura, until then it's best to get standalone downloads from them in my experience with the Desura & Desurium clients.
For me it's one of the few things that keeps with going back to Steam, the client for me works great and not having to worry about updates to games is extremely handy. This is something the Desura client does as well but as stated for me it's just too unstable.
