Open your wallets, there's some great Linux games on sale right now

Posted by , / 7521 views

It's time to throw your wallet at your screen, as we're going to take a look at some awesome Linux games on sale.

First up, there's the Humble Down Under Bundle I wrote about recently, with all games available on Linux. Yes, even Hurtworld has a Linux version it's just not advertised. Probably one of the best bundles they've done for Linux recently, don't miss out!

  • DiRT Rally - Steam 80% off. Easily one of the best racing games available on Linux for single-player. A solid port from Feral Interactive, possibly one of their best ports.
  • GRID Autosport - Steam 75% off. Another quality racing game port from Feral Interactive, with some seriously fun online game modes.
  • Cities: Skylines - Humble Store, Steam(75% off on both). A game to absolutely lose yourself in. Build a huge city, with access to tons of mods on the Steam Workshop. A big new DLC just released too!
  • Rise to Ruins - itch.io, Steam (50% off on both). One of those rare gems that's in Early Access, with constant meaty updates filled full of awesome new stuff. A great village building god-sim.
  • Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III - Steam 50% off (Free weekend!). A very good looking strategy game, with some interesting game mechanics.
  • Maia - Steam 44% off. I absolutely love watching this colony building sim advance as time goes on. It's really starting to come together now, huge update just landed too (Linux version updating soon).
  • CHKN - Steam 35% off. Possibly the weirdest survival game I've ever played. You make your own creatures out of blocks, tame other creatures and build a house. It's utterly bizarre, but my son loves it.

There's plenty more on sale, so here's some quick links for you to see all games on sale: Steam, Humble Store, GOG, itch.io.

Don't hide a good deal, share your infinite knowledge in the comments and help out.

Micro Machines World Series just went on sale too on Steam, 50% (15€ here). Though personally I'll wait for the next sale (too many games I still have to play, not enough time)

I picked up Super Star Path and Costume Quest on itch.io. Super Star Path is already a lunch time game with my co-workers.

Not quite, you miss regional pricing which GOG is bad at for some countries.

As 20th October 2017, the game is $1.27 for Turkey, $1.08 for Russia, $2.95 for Britain, $2.99 for US and $3.54 for EU on Steam:

On the other hand, it is $2.99 for Turkey on GOG at the moment.

Valley, Fall Of the Dungeon Guardians, and Cross Code are all on sale on Steam right now.

Coincidentally, all are on my wish list too.

So many games, so little time... (and that darn budget too!!!)

44% off Maia sounds good... I have a thing for builders... (I already play way too much Cracktorio(factorio) and Rim World. If its any good it may kill me, especially if Alpha18 for Rim World releases soon and/or the Artillery Train gets out in Factorio around the same time.

Micro Machines sounds interesting... but I am curious... only 19% positive on Steam. I thought it was well regarded here. I'm not much of a racer... but I do remember enjoying the old sprint/super sprint in the arcades way back when.. (about 30 years ago)

Rise to Ruins... A good game... I enjoy it a lot, but haven't played much in the past year. (no surprise, about the time I got Cracktorio ) The dev (Rayvolution) even showed up in our forums here earlier today trying to help someone with a bug.

Dawn of War III... sounds really interesting... But, I still haven't even started Dawn of War II... I picked up the entire DoW2 with all the DLC back during the Summer Sale 4 months ago... its still installed on this computer but I haven't seen past the title screen in all that time.

Dirt Rally seems decent... but if I am honest with myself, I will never have the time to play it, too much of a backlog already and the others are more my type of games.

Anybody here playing Maia or Micro Machines regularly? Want to comment and/or review on your experience?

Edit: Hey Liam... have you ever considered a review section on here???

And despite the bashing it has been fixed for a while and runs perfectly fine on my setup, which is not exactly a gaming beast.

Got Rise to Ruins. Even though I've only just started playing Stardew Valley - and I'm still trying to get anywhere with the excellent Tooth and Tail, and still somewhere midway through Planescape: Torment... You are a bad influence
