Fanatical has a big strategy game sale on with some good Linux games cheap

Posted by , | Views: 3,934

What's that? That's the refreshing smell of yet another big sale going on and this time it's at Fanatical. They're running a strategy games sale and here's a few choice picks for you:

There's also various DLC on sale as well, so if you're missing some for your games it might be a good time to take a look.

A note about Fanatical: They don't list Linux icons for any ports by Feral Interactive, as for whatever reason Feral won't get paid from them, all other Linux games seem fine.

They also have a strategy game bundle going for £1.79 that has four Linux games in that might be worth a look.

More games from other stores for sale can be found on our dedicated Sales Page.

Great! I bought the USD 1.99 strategy bundle. It has Space Hulk Ascension and Grand Ages Medieval, which I have been planning to buy.

Thanks for mentioning that. I've been thinking about GAM myself, but probably wouldn't have looked at the bundle otherwise.

Ooh, only 12 minutes left on Surviving Mars now! Nah, still too expensive for me at the moment. It's (or was ) a good offer if you have £20 to spare, mind you.

How do they now that the buyer has bought it for Linux to acknowledge the Linux buy?

Too bad the Attila port was trash - wish CA didn't try to do things in house.

In which sense it was bad? Performance? Features? Graphically?

I don't think they ever get to know that. They just resell steam keys, and it is steam that will acknowledge the activation for a particular platform when it is done.

I asked a few developers whose games were offered here. They claimed it did not matter to them. It is important that I buy and activate on Steam and play on Linux and they will know that I am playing on Linux.

Because the keys on Steam are not assigned to a specific platform but to a specific publisher. Thats why there is no such thing as Linux keys.

Performance. Also, being an house port, you would think CA would have solved cross platform multiplayer, but, nope. To be fair, the performance on Windows was/is also garbage, but, the Linux/OSX ports are even worse. Its disappointing as it really is a good/great game otherwise.

You know, I wish I could understand this lack of cross-platform multiplayer. I reckon there are different network libraries for each system, but the packages themselves are regular IP packages, what difficulty might arise in crafting exactly the same packages (even if using different libraries) between platforms so they can communicate? A linux browser can connect to a windows web server and vice versa because the network layer is platform-agnostic. Why can't it happen in certain games?
