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

Posted by , / 7518 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.

EhvisObviously 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.

I remember that Feral buys the Linux/Maac rights and there's no cut for the original publisher taken away from Linux sells.

cRaZy-bisCuiTIf 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.

Thanks, but I already knew this. I want to play singleplayer for the story. This is why I played every DoW game.

EhvisSteam 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.

Thanks for confirmation. I tried to ask the Feral directly, but didn't get any answer for now.

I’d buy Dirt Rally if it wasn’t full of ingame ads.

I was considering getting a Steam Link + ICEY game which is highly discounted at the moment. But, I wasn't expecting the price to double when they add Shipping on top. Still, worth mentioning in case someone else wants it. Noting that the game ICEY is Windows, not Linux.

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.

You can take it from GOG for free if u own Steam version. You can claim in on special page on GOG both TW1 and TW2. You need only serial number from steam. Maybe thats why u get it in 0 price.

It was several years ago, so i dont really remember, but i, 1) dont use steam 2) not purchased it in any other store. I think it was one of "rewards" for getting EXP on one of GOG big sales or something. Its not really matter why anyway.

I got the response from Feral:
Feral SupportI'm afraid we can't go into the nitty-gritty of our accounting, but to support us directly please feel free to buy the game from the Feral Store.

Unlike all the other licensed sports games? Sponsor ads are sadly part of the experience.

I hate ads but Dirt Rally is totally worth it. You won't have time to look at the ads. You'll be too busy crashing into them and losing a wheel or two.

I never really notice them. Ads are parts of racing, so it feels natural.
