War For the Overworld - Spiritual successor of Dungeon Keeper, made by Dungeon Keeper fans!
Speedster 15 December 2012 at 7:25 am UTC

The Red Queen of Oz is currently in-progress as a graphic novel, but this project is for expanding the story into an adventure game, which the project creator has been hoping for all along.

Those who don't like any combat will be happy to know it's completely optional, and those who just don't like the twitchy stuff will be happy to know that combat is turn-based if you don't skip it.

Supported platforms: Linux, Mac, Windows (developed with Unity engine)

Hey, thanks Speedster! I'm all over that game.

Also, folks, the Strike Suit Zero project (funded on November 17th at $174.8K plus ~$3K from PayPal, out of the $180K Linux stretch goal) just committed to Linux in update #26 on their Kickstarter page. Also, a sweet racing game called Distance came, funded, and is completed now.

Where can we collect and track these? Flibitjibibo ran a wiki for crowd-sourced Linux games, in which we could update their status (etc.), but he ran it on his "Steam on Linux" blog, where he tracked how one goes about running Steam Windows games in Wine and either took or is taking it down (since Steam is on Linux proper, now).

This list is theoretically for "active" projects only (and even it is out of date). Any ideas? I wiki page somewhere? Different tracking thread?

I will be making a dedicated crowdfunding section much like the game sales section for keeping track of them all , well either that or a forum for it, not entirely sure just yet.
