It's that time of the year again: a reminder that we are entirely funded by readers and we could use your support!
As Linux gaming continues to mature and change in the era of the Steam Deck, we appear to be getting more readers than ever before which is amazing. Native Linux games continue to appear, while Proton continues advancing towards enabling more Windows games to work on Linux too, there's never a dull moment.
We're different to many other sites as we don't chase content numbers for adverts, we just cover what we think you might be interested in plus plenty of sprinkles of what we're directly interested in too. There's also plenty of YouTube videos and Twitch livestreams too!
This does mean we depend on you, our wonderful readers.
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 when we have them you can do so on Patreon.
All other plain donations, without any special rewards can be done by:
- Paypal Donation or set a Monthly donation/sub: Supporter - Supporter Plus
- Twitch - If you have Amazon Prime, you gain a free Twitch sub but you need to manually re-do it each month.
- Ko-fi - chuck us a coffee or two
You can also buy games using our affiliate/partner links:
You can find all the links to support us on 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.
Thank you for continuing to read and support GamingOnLinux!
GoL is among my five most visited sites for years.
Quoting: Comandante ÑoñardoDO I have to use https://af.gog.com/game/xxxxxxxxx?as=1636858786 on every gog purchase, including wallet funds, or just once in the main site?All purchases, same for Humble, as the cookie used to store our partner ID don't last long.
Edit: to be clear, clicking once and then buying multiple things is fine. But the ID cookie isn't a permanent thing of course, it will have an expiry date on it.

Would it be too much to add this story to your top banner ( the one where PopOS is now ) in fact i kind of like the way steam does the sliding adverts on the main page with the buttons to press to the next game or sale. Perhaps you could have the PopOS article and ten seconds later to slide to your Support Article on a rotation.
At the very least use an animated GIF on the article to attract peoples attention. The thumbnail in itself isn't really standing out.
just some positive feedback is all, as a fan you understand.
Quoting: Loftyjust some positive feedback is all, as a fan you understand.Totally get what you're saying, the feedback on that is appreciated, sometimes big news just drops but I'll think on other better ways to highlight it and might do it a little more often rather than 1-2x a year.
