Fumiko! A new single-player, story-driven game that has been developed with Unity and Linux is coming out next month. It looks absolutely bizarre, but in a good way.

This metroidvania with distinctive hand-drawn art is set to launch sometime in the middle of the year. Developer Thunder Lotus has decided to start a crowdfunding campaign to finance extra polish and get player input before launch.

Well, Rise & Shine has certainly hooked me in with its rather awesome visuals and slick looking action! The developers have said they are investigating and testing Linux support. UPDATED.

GOL follower hardpenguin sent over a copy of 'Pocket Kingdom' for me to take a look at, and as a fan of the Amiga I had to give it a go.

I was sent in Gearend by a reader, as it not only looks like a pretty good 2D exploration game, but it's also developed on Linux.

We've been waiting a while on it, but Fossil Echo looks like it's finally nearing a release for Linux.

Later than I had originally hoped, but Best Buds vs Bad Guys has officially released for Linux. I actually Kickstarted this game, so I was hoping it would be good.

Super Jagua is a retro platformer inspired by Super Mario Bros. The game recently came to Linux and the developer provided us some keys to throw at you.

Putty Squad, a platformer from 1994 which had a revamped version in 2013 looks like it's coming to Linux from Virtual Programming.

The developer of Super Rad Raygun sent in a key for me to check out their retro-inspired action platformer.

Best Buds vs Bad Guys is another game that has sadly seen a delay of the Linux version. I'm a little sour here since I funded it on Kickstarter (broke my own rule there!).

Sometimes I get sent really interesting things to cover and sometimes I get sent some really basic, terrible stuff. Porradaria Upgrade & Porradaria 2: Pagode of the Night are two that firmly sit in the terrible pile.

This is one that’s heavy on the action and explosions. With over-the-top weapons and fast gameplay, 4Team is about seeing who the last man standing will be.
