How is Yooka-Laylee? It seems right up my alley but I remember seeing some negative reviews on launch.

IMHO it's definitely worth it and it has few comparable games on Linux. The only thing that annoys me is the childish tone. Apart from that, it's quite enjoyable, with tons of moves, secrets and expanding worlds...

Unsure how it is now, but last time I tried gamepad support on Linux was awful which ends up being a deal-breaker for me in such games. They did numerous updates to it though, so it's likely improved but didn't have time to test.

I had the same problem the first time I tried, but I gave it another go and completed the game around Christmas last year. I don't recall having trouble with the controls this time. Fun platformer, if you can handle a bit of trial and error. Well worth the sale price.

Good to hear, I noticed it in my original release post on it and still recommended it for keyboard controls. Glad to hear it seems to work now with gamepads though

Ah, well I did play quite awhile ago, maybe about 5 months ago, and my controller seems to work fine with it straight from the get-go, didn't run into any other issues either and completed the game

I noticed Psychonauts is on sale too, I actually did have problems with controller support with that game when I tried it on linux which was a real shame, never played the game but know it's highly looked upon as a classic and really want to give it a go sometime

Oh and the guy asking about Yooka-Laylee, it's not a bad game at all, does have some more mediocre parts to it then I would of liked, no real graphical options either, depth of field is terrible and also bloom is overused like crazy in the game.. But overall I think it is a good game, not a GREAT game, but a good one!

Might pick up Grow Home, stupidly cheap and looks like a fun time.. But why no Grow Up on Linux?

I've been paitently waiting for Exodus for ages now it seems, will be instant day-one buy for me if it comes with day-1 linux support

Had to turn off bloom in new and tasty though, just felt wrong in an oddworld game to have all those colourful bright lights in the game xD

QuotePixel Perfect Platformer Game Sale

Man, what a letdown. I really thought they meant "Pixel Perfect Graphics". But it just seems to be an arbitrary catch phrase with the word "pixel" in it. But at least they didn't call it the "rogue like sale".
