A look at what's currently on sale and good for Linux gamers

Posted by , | Views: 5,904

The weekend is nearing, you're in need of more games to fill up your backlog with and so we're here to help you satisfy that need.

Firstly, as a reminder there's a big GOG summer sale going on. We have one of those fancy summer partner pages with some choice picks (all of which are on sale!), so if you're a big GOG fan it's worth a look there.

Steam has a Dungeons Dragons Sale going on until tomorrow (~20 hours left), so you can pick up titles like Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition with 75% off, Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition with 80% off and so on.

Here's a few extra choice picks from random stores to take a look at:

  • SOMA - 80% off - GOG
  • Mad Max - 75% off - Steam (~20 hours left, act fast)
  • SteamWorld Heist - 67% off - Steam (~20 hours left, act fast)
  • Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition - 67% off - Gemly (Techland's own store ~13 hours left, act fast)
  • MidBoss - 50% off - Humble Store, itch.io, Steam
  • The Signal From Tölva - 50% off - Steam

In the Humble Monthly, you can grab Hearts of Iron IV. In addition, the Humble Monthly gives you access to the Humble Trove, which is a big collection of DRM free games you can download any time. They just added The Penumbra Collection, Satellite Reign and Subserial Network to the list of over 30 titles—not bad for $12!

If you like your realism-based FPS games, The Humble Arma 2018 Bundle can give you Arma 3 (experimental Linux port available) + a bunch of DLC.

There's also The Humble Daedalic Bundle 2018 which has a few really decent Linux games as well like Caravan, Deponia: The Complete Journey, Anna's Quest, Silence, Deponia Doomsday and Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun.

Lastly, while not game related, if you're into your programming The Humble Book Bundle: Pocket Primers might be worth a look.

We can also buy DL on GamesRepublic. My local price is better in GamesRepublic than in Gemly: https://gamesrepublic.com/steam/dying-light-pc-digital-cd-key

Pan-Pan, an absorbing little puzzle game with a similar aesthetic to Monument Valley, is on sale for 80% off. It's relatively short, but for less than CDN $3 I'd say it's worth the price.

I picked this up a couple days ago. It is really fun!

You have to be patient at the start as it doesn't give much info away. However, I thought it was very clever. The only puzzle I didn't like was the tombstones with eyes. The whole thing was very very cute, though.

74% off... I bought it there a few days ago. It says "PC/Mac" but it's a Steam key, and there's no third party publisher in this case losing out.

SOMA is a great game.

Just picked up the Signal from Tolva. It'll have to wait on the shelf for a few months though - I'm in the early days of playing Dying Light ...

The logic of the eye temple was hard to figure out, and the yellow component was pretty non-intuitive. Nothing really indicated that was possible and I just took it as background like the birds are. But the rest of it was brilliant.
