If you've wanted to try a Tower Defense game that mixes in Action and Survival elements, you're in luck. Dead Ground has elements of them all.

Can't Drive This, the racer where the other player builds the track is rough, but shows promise

By liamdawe, 12 February 2018 at 3:38 pm UTC (1 Comments)
It's been a while since Can't Drive This gained Linux support, so I finally set aside some time to take a proper look. An amusing idea, where one player races and the other builds the track as you go.

By BTRE, 12 January 2018 at 10:07 am UTC (6 Comments)
This rather fun trading card game has had unofficial builds that run on Linux for a little while now. I tried them out and it’s a pretty fun game, but don’t expect official support anytime soon.

Some early thoughts on the open-world sandbox game ‘Project 5: Sightseer’

Project 5: Sightseer is a hard game to describe properly, but it certainly has managed to capture my attention.

Haque, a rather great glitch fantasy roguelike has released with Linux support, also something about Penguins

By liamdawe, 11 December 2017 at 12:54 pm UTC (4 Comments)
