Even more Linux games confirmed for the Steam Game Festival

By - | Views: 13,673

We're getting close to the launch of the Steam Game Festival, running from June 9 - 15 and we have more games confirmed to get a Linux demo for you.

As more events go online because of the Coronavirus, it's giving a lot of people chances to play games early they wouldn't perhaps normally be able to. Valve's festival is one for a global audience to get involved thanks to many developers putting up demos for it.

For a quick round-up on Linux game demos we already have confirmed: the literary mystery Sarawak, the racing game DRAG, a supernatural horror with ASYLUM and also the curious looking point and click adventure Nine Noir Lives. Today, we have more confirmed to share with you!

Elteria Adventures (Steam Page)

Elteria Team announced their very colourful MMO, Elteria Adventures, will be placed into an "Open Alpha" during the festival so anyone will be able to jump in and try it out. It looks quite unique, with it split up across tons of small islands that blends a 3D platformer with an MMO. Linux confirmation here.

Vagrus - The Riven Realms (Steam Page)

Currently doing a hybrid of crowdfunding and Early Access, Vagrus - The Riven Realms is available to get right now on Fig. It's a very impressive turn-based post-apocalyptic fantasy RPG, with some fantastic writing and a gorgeous setting that I've already sunk hours into the preview builds. If you love a good read, mixed with plenty of exploration, strategy and trading then do keep an eye on it. Linux confirmation here.

No doubt there will be more than that, especially as new announcements seem to be coming out quite quickly as Valve go through all the submissions. We will let you know as more come in. It's shaping up to be a very exciting event.

If we have any game developers reading who will be doing a Linux demo be sure to let us know.

Haha! I'm actually surprised over how many of us there are. I've discovered, for example, a lot more colleagues at work has it than I was aware of.

I simply don't follow VR as I don't have it, so I wouldn't expect much VR from GOL any time soon.

But we need you on the VR train! Could we do a gofundme or something, see if we can gather enough for you to order a set?

There is a VR coverage void for Linux. Many articles that need to be written like why games from 2016-2018 can never be ported (unity engine didn't support VR on Linux) and why nvidia/facebook/epic are terrible companies.

Ah, the "I know a lot of people", the same argument I use as a fighting gamer, to not feel Im not a niche of a niche gamer.

Wow, way to go for VR, being so exclusive that you need crowdfunding to get one. I don't think Liam is exactly someone that poor to not get decent hardware, still no VR.

I can't hide my despise for Epic, but at least Epic can be installed on any PC and doesn't need expensive PC hardware to run. We now have almost half a decade since VR was introduced and it is right now a real most elitist thing in gaming in general. The void you talk about is not only on Linux but the gaming scene as a whole, but somehow this 0.90% thinks VR deserves more coverage. Like asking sports media to coverage Camel races instead of football or Basketball.
Sadly while you are pretty vocal about how VR is great, you(I mean most VR gamers) seem not to be uncomfortable at the fact that is technology available just for a few. And the worst, seeing this in a site that shares news about gaming in an Open Source OS is just way mind-boggling.
I mean VR is right now totally opposite of the spirit of Open source software, one could think five years could be enough to close that gap, but somehow VR is getting more expensive, not counting used devices that seems to not be compatible with half of the new VR games.

Cant speak for what they intended it to be, but as a D&D player it looks like a slaad to me

Same thing here, bought the Valve Index and suddenly my taste in games is all messed up, I can't get immersed like I was in games like Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Metro: Exodus or Star Citizen, and for flat screen games they are super immersive. On the other hand I am having a thrill with games that I had abandoned and came back to, like Payday 2 and Elite: Dangerous due to their amazing VR capabilities, and I am even enjoying styles I never liked like racing games (Distance).
