Jack Orlando: Director's Cut [Steam], an adventure game published by Topware is the latest game of theirs to get a Wine-port on Steam.
See the announcement here. They do note some issues to be aware of!
For those that don't know: Topware have been Wine-wrapping a bunch of their old games to give them a Linux version on Steam. This is a good example of Wine use in my books, since games that otherwise wouldn't get a Linux version are using an open source project to do it. If Wine gets updated and the game works better, they can simply slot in a new Wine version. It's a nice approach to show them Linux sales and it gives Linux users a game that has been officially tested in Wine too.
