Announcing Gameolith a new Linux game download store opening on 12th July!

I am the owner of GamingOnLinux. After discovering Linux back in the days of Mandrake in 2003, I constantly came back to check on the progress of Linux until Ubuntu appeared on the scene and it helped me to really love it. You can reach me easily by emailing GamingOnLinux directly.

Looks to be a bit more fancy than Tux Games or Wupra, judging by this page:

Yeah i had a look at that today, looks to be a very good service, could do very well if it pays off since it allows .deb .rpm and tarballs (tarballs being my favourite as i can then store the games wherever i want!).

Interesting, although I already bought most games I like.
Recently we have many Linux gaming stores - hard to decide from where to buy ;)

Well, I remember reading an archived LinuxGames post from about five or six years ago where many people were complaining that there was basically nowhere but TuxGames to buy native gaming titles. That has thankfully been changed somewhat.

Well, they seem to be serious, they now have a list of the games they will be selling at launch and a timer indicating when their service will open it's doors for good. I like that they seem to be big on making sure that they cater to as much as the major distributions as possible, even though I tend to prefer to keep my proprietary games separate from my package manager. Still, compared to the closed nature of the USC it is kind of refreshing.

I'm really amazed by how many games there seem to be for GNU/Linux now.
Of all the games listed, I hadn't heard of SpaceChem, Beep and BOH before.

Of course, most of them are indie games, but in a certain way, that makes it even more interesting. :)

Yes it is! thats exactly why I solely game on Linux as I play games I would not even consider if I was still on Windows and many of them are quite original in design.
