What have you been gaming on Linux recently? Come have a chat

By - | Views: 33,958

It's been a little while since we had a community-chat post to round-up what you've all been gaming on Linux lately, so let's have a chat shall we.

We're all a bit spoilt for choice thanks to the likes of native Linux games, Steam Play Proton, cloud game streaming, lots of great emulators and more that you can all do right on Linux. This often makes choosing a game to play rather difficult doesn't it? It does for me.

I end up quite often going back to what I see as comfort games, those that you can just repeat over and over and you know them well, like a gaming comfort blanket with the likes of XCOM 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Streets of Rogue and others but there's a new one in my own personal list: Ziggurat 2 which released into Early Access with Linux support in late October.

Milkstone Studios seem to have crafted an absolutely magical first-person dungeon crawler, that I can quite easily see myself putting hundreds of hours into. There's something so supremely satisfying about running around a room waving a wand or a staff around, unleashing powering magics on somewhat freaky enemies (like those damn running carrots). When you get into the boss battles, it really gets your blood flowing too.

Over to you in the comments: what have you been gaming on Linux lately? Let us know what you've newly discovered, what you keep going back to and more.

Played some smaller games this weekend, like Valiant Hearts and Blue Estate. Getting ready to start on Pray.

Considering we're going to have another 4 or more months of lockdown, I sure wish I find some more interesting games to pass my time, I fear boredom might make me lose my marbles this winter.

Started and finished Superliminal. Great little game.

Played a bit of Automachef from my humble backlog. It's an ok game, but it doesn't present that need to continue like Zachtronics manages.

Start on Blasphemous as well.

And most importantly, I finally finished my megabase in Factorio! Here are the results of 190 hours of hard labour!


2.7k SPM in all its (map) glory.

Xcom: Enemy Unknown & Two Point Hospital for me :) Looking at some games in my catalog I haven't played, Meltdown looks like something I'm going play this week as well.

Been getting back into Factorio too (though my base is nowhere as impressive as @Ehvis' )
