A look at some great Linux gaming deals not to be missed this week

Posted by , | Views: 5,933

Another week has begun, it's hot and so it's a good time to stay inside playing games obviously. Here's a look over what's going cheap this week.

Firstly, Humble Store is doing a Team17 Publisher Week with a few nice Linux games on offer like Flockers, Overcooked! 2 and Sheltered. If you act fast Humble also have Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition going really cheap for another 5 hours.

The Humble Humongous Entertainment Bundle is also still going for another day, which has a ton of excellent family friendly games which are really worth checking out.

GOG are doing a pretty damn good Indie Week sale, with loads of great games reduced like Moonlighter, Darkest Dungeon, Hollow Knight, Owlboy, Hammerwatch, Tower of Time, Sunless Sea, Sunless Skies and more. Absolutely worth a look, some of my favourites are in there!

Fanatical are also doing a big Easter Eggstravaganza Sale and they also have some good titles cheaper from big titles like Civilization VI to Motorsport Manager they have a pretty varied selection.

Fanatical are also doing a Mystery Egg Bundle which is a little risky, since you've no idea what you will get but it could work out well. However, their Easter Eggstravaganza sounds like a better deal as the more games you pick up, the bigger your savings. They also still have a ridiculous 90% off Skullgirls.

I spotted Fluffy Horde in the current sales, at 80% discount (Nice!). It seems a very interesting, relatively casual game with a style/look which is similar to Kingdom: Classic. After watching some game play on youtube, I decided it'd be good for a few hours play.

If you are interested, I suggest picking it up soon because I think the offer expires in the next few hours.

Hey Liam, thanks for this service!

Would you mind linking to the most relevant GOL article of the individual games if it's not too much work?

(Ofc) They are sometimes very helpful with the replies from the community.
Be it to encourage a buy or staying (far) away with the current hardware configuration.

I just snagged overcooked 2 after playing it with some friends over the weekend. That game gets intense!

I wish Feral would hurry up and sell Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Can't buy and give away copies that can't be bought! (My wallet says Take your time feral).

I did notice that Liam already linked the GOG Indie Week Sale list in the article, and practically all the GOG games being mentioned (Sunless Sea, etc) are already in that list. It is just the tiniest bit of work for the reader to go to the list and then jump to the specific game.

I was talking about the related GOL articles - not GOG.

Perhaps, although it might make things confusing when my aim is just to get people right to the games rather than do in-website links like other sites often do. Will think on how to best do it, might not always make sense either when previous articles don't have anything important to know.

Just a random suggestion since it's not a feature I'm personally interested in, but maybe you could take a page from Wikipedia's "see also" article sections. Or if you would rather avoid an additional section, maybe add a superscript [GOL] link next to each title, e.g. Darkest Dungeons⁽ᴳᴼᴸ⁾.
(Yeah I had to cheat a bit for the example.)

Sadly it's still in the outer ring of their radar so it looks like it will take quite some time more before it's released :-(. Watched the movie and replayed both games this weekend so I too incidently was in the mood for Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
