12 years ago we appeared online, Happy Birthday to GamingOnLinux

By - | Views: 23,542

12 years ago on July 5, the GamingOnLinux website was created. Who would have thought it would still be going this long, in the face of overwhelming odds. Happy Birthday to us! It's been a thrilling ride, one we hope to keep enjoying for many years to come.

The next year or so should be thoroughly interesting, with the rumours on the SteamPal coming up. We're quite excited to see how that will change Linux gaming and hope to be at the forefront of reporting on it for all Linux gaming fans. Of course though, our overall mission remains the same: to cover any and all types of Linux gaming from news about native games, development on emulators, open source, Wine & Proton and so much more.

If you can donate or regularly support us, here's where you can do so: Firstly, if you wish to get specific reward tiers and access to special things you can do so on Patreon. Unlike many websites, we don't have adverts littering the screen. We do wish to remain that way, however we do have a single spot on our Patreon tiers for a single sponsor to have a small spot before comments.

All other donations, without any special rewards can be done by:

You can also buy games using our affiliate/partner links:

You can find all the links to support us on a our dedicated page any time.

As always, our inbox is open if you wish to know anything or you wish us to work on a feature to improve the site. Always happy to hear from readers and game developers. Check out our contact page on how to reach us.

It's probable that this has been the toughest year so far for so many reasons from COVID-19 to personal life issues but we're still here - alive, kicking and committed. Thank you very much for being part of our community. Here's to another great year. Cheers!

We shall be doing a chilled-out birthday livestream tonight so do go ahead and follow us on Twitch.

I remember that before GamingOnLinux, there wasn't much. I think I browsed Linux Game Tome now and then, but was pretty much it.

GamingOnLinux has been clearly filling a void and while there's now some some competition out there, GamingOnLinux is putting more effort into the content and it really shows.
