I just though that it's inexpected to see the GO games ported to PC but I just saw that Hitman GO had already been (with Linux support too). I guess we can expect Deus Ex GO next.

Played both Lara Croft GO and Deus EX GO on Android and they are great puzzle games and great to have them on Linux! Quite a price hike transitioning from mobile though, from 5€ to 10€...

The recommended GTX 970 seems like overkill.

"Go" games were meant to be played on mobile devices. I'm not going to back up Square Enix this time, because this game is not something I personally am interested in - but I know that there are people who will play it and every new game is welcomed on our platform.

In general - I love Square Enix for being on board and the day Rise of Tomb Raider comes to Linux I buy it for full price (and new hardware as well).

I felt a little bit bad that I already had Tomb Raider from my windows days, so I couldn't "support the port", so to speak. I bought this instead and hope that it will go a tiny bit of the way towards a port of "Rise" for Linux.

Turns out I already own the game for Android via HumbleBundle. I am a bit doubtful, is it worth it to play it on PC, or is the experience best enjoyed on a mobile device?

Although I must say that I am unsure I will ever play it on a mobile device.

I bought Hitman GO and it’s a decent little puzzle game, but not amazing… Better on a phone indeed. Lara Croft GO looks cool (I like the graphics) but I guess it’s the same kind of gameplay.

Yeah, I bought Deus ex go on phone during this sale. These are really mobile games. Beautiful time wasters. Worth every penny.
Anyways, more linux games! Hooray!

Even if it's a small game, it's still pretty cool that it released with Linux support right away.

I didn't expect the character to be animated. Hitman Go has static board game pieces. Looks interesting.
