An early look at what's on sale this week, time to pick up a good deal

Posted by , | Views: 3,947

April is here already and here's your first look this month at what's going cheap for Linux gamers to pick up.

First up, Humble Store is having a Kalypso Publisher Week and so there's a number of good titles to find like:

There's more, see the full list here. Humble also have their WB Publisher Sale also still on for a couple days which includes titles like Mad Max, Shadow of Mordor GOTY Edition plus many that likely work with Steam Play that's worth a look. You also have a few days left for the Humble Monthly which has Northgard, Minit and more.

For those who prefer their DRM-free gaming, GOG has their usual Weekly Sale now live as well and they have some nice titles going cheap like:

While not on sale, just a note that the excellent retro FPS DUSK is heading to GOG.

Fanatical as usual also have a bunch of stuff going on, like the Aspyr Media pick and mix bundle. It will let you choose multiple games together, to get a cheaper price which is awesome. Fanatical also have the complete bundle of Skullgirls going for an insane price for another two days.

Over on Steam, they also have their usual Weeklong Deals with some pretty good stuff there too although it's a lot of smaller and older titles there's still some good picks like 75% off Evergarden and 80% off Dex.

Ps. If you love your coding, Humble also have the Coder's Bookshelf book bundle.

The Humblebundle website says Shadowgrounds:Survivor is a Linux game, Steam says its not. Does anybody know the truth? Maybe it once was supported?

If memory serves, it was ported to Linux for one of the older Humble Indie Bundles. Humble do have a Linux version and for whatever reason (possibly contracts) Frozenbyte never put the Linux build on Steam. This happened for other games too.

I've not played the Shadowgrounds games in a while, so I don't know how easy it is to build and run that, but the sources are there. You'll need some version of the game to get the assets of course.

Is there any possibility to share some steam keys with other Linux users? Not that I'm expecting much, but I would rather give away a key if I knew it will be used on Linux or steam play.

Hi. There are a number of ways forward for sharing steam keys on GOL:

You could just post the key, and the first person or automated bot to claim it would get it. (Problem is that automated bots might not be Linux users.)

You could mention the games that you have spare keys, and ask that people Private Message you, and then decide if you want to give to one of those people. (Most regulars on here are Linux gamers, and would claim the game as a Linux title on Steam, as you prefer that.)

You could hand over the key to Liam, and he could then pass it on, maybe to a GOL supporter.
- The key could become a prize in a competition on the site, either random winner or chosen winner.

Finally, you might find someone who has a steam key that you want, and you could use it as the basis for a swap.

Hope these ideas help you make up your mind.

Tropico 5 is DRM free on Steam for Linux. Tested it myself.
It's a great game.
