Don't adjust your screens, as you did read that correctly. Over 1,000 games have released on Steam this year alone with Linux support.

I've been slowly writing up an end of year roundup and something I wanted to know was how well we have done this year in terms of actual releases.

It took a while to add it all up, as some games show up in the list with a date that’s passed and they aren’t actually released. I had to be pretty careful and do it slowly to make sure it's right.

As of right now, I counted approximately 1,018 games with Linux support that have released this year. It's a silly amount of games and pretty impossible to play them all.

I would also like to point out something interesting that SteamSpy showed off, the fact that 38% of games on Steam have released this year:
This is madness. That percentage will possibly rise too, depending on how many get released in total this month.

It just goes to show how easy it is for developers to get started developing now, and how Greenlight has changed Steam. All platforms get a lot more mobile ports and sadly rather a lot of complete shovelware too.

Thankfully, we have also seen quite a number of quality releases this year too!

Place your bets now! How many games do you think will be released by the end of 2016? The person closest will get a GOL postcard early next year. You have until December 15th to answer.

Is this only games where the game was new this year and it supports Linux or games that got Linux support this year?

Half of them are shitty visual novels, but 500 games are fine too

80% of steam catalog was released in last 3 years and you dont see any problem with that? EA, Greenlight?
Gaming industry is going down and all you can say is 1k games are supporting Linux?!?!? First of all, pushing "Build for Linux" in Unity editor is not SPUPPROTING LINUX you stupid traitors!!! 99% of games in last 3 years where Unity crap default assets games, indy bullshit and poor AAA console DLC/Seasson_pass fest "ports".
Everybody is focusing on VR which is failing it will barly happen on Windows, Linux can forget about it; at least in this VR hype wave, last one failed in '90s.
Is it even possible with you traitors to have a game that is "ported" on Linux and to say that that game is objectively tehnicaly bad?(not looking at content)
