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

Posted by , / 7507 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.

The Halloween sales are just around the corner.

DamonLinuxPLWitcher 2 on GOG for 1.65$ (on Steam 2,99$)

Probably most of GOG customers already have it. It was on sales with big discount several times and i believe on some action it was possible to get it for free. At least in my order history its price is zero.

I want to buy a Dawn of War III, but I don't know if Feral get anything from the sold copy if I buy it on Steam.
Does anyone know if they are getting they share? If not I will rather wait till the sale will be in the Feral store.

Back after Civ V was ported to linux, Aspyr was asked about how they get money for the port. Essentially, it was if you were using linux on steam when you bought the game it counted as a linux sale and Aspyr would get credit. While I don't know how much of the sale they actually received, this was how they were compensated. If you were on a windows machine when you bought it, Aspyr did not get anything.

My guess/assumption is that is likely how Feral gets paid as well.

In any case, that appears to be how steam credits a linux sale as opposed to windows, so if you want devs to notice linux gamers, when buying from steam, always use the native linux client; not WINE, nor windows (if you dual boot.)

Stay away from Micro Machines World Series, it's a total waste of potential. Empty, very few mods to play with, all cars behave the same, not many cars, circuits, choices... The 19% rating is not stolen.

If you buy on Steam for Linux, they'll get a share. If you buy from their store, they'll get much more.


Also please note the game has NO cross platform Multilayer between Windows and Linux - that could be a pitfall if you'd like to play this with your friends.

Can anyone advise whether any DLC for GRID is worth buying? It never seems to get as deep a sale as the main game.

Edit: I forgot to say that I don't own the game yet. I was waiting to see if they would do a good bundle.

Steam determines the platform by the most hours played in the first 7 days. If the game was not played during that time, the platform of purchase counts. If the platform is Linux (or Mac), Feral gets their cut.

Obviously Feral has not discussed their contracts with the publisher handles the split of income. But that should not differ between the Feral store on any other stores. The only real difference is that purchases from the Feral store aren't subject to the 30% cut from Steam.
