By - | Views: 24,161
Steam is really bringing in the indies aren't they! They have pushed the button for another batch of titles to be greenlit, this time there are 37 100% confirmed Linux titles.

My Personal Picks
Kyn - A tactical RPG where you can take control of a troop of up to six warriors.

Topia Online - An interesting looking 2D MMORPG

Paragon - The fantastic looking space sim

An honourable mention goes out to AutoTileGen which was greenlit as well, it's not a game, but maybe useful for developers.

Valve have said eventually they will get rid of Steam's greenlight and make Steam a self-publishing platform, I wonder how long it will be until they do that. They will have to be careful when they do it too, since they will probably not be able to wipe all of greenlight as games just keep flowing.
I would imagine at some-point they will close greenlight for new applications.

I would take it with a grain of salt. It seems there is a new trend of listing Linux as a supported platform on Greenlight page, but not delivering once greenlit.

Kyn, the first game, is my favorite in Greenlight the last week. I have high hopes for this game.

The Maker's Eden still needs help getting onto Steam as well:

I hope Kyn will get on steam an will get Linux release. I think it is worth buying.

FRONTIERS is a very nice idea. I hope it will be the linux "The Elder Scroll" :).

Quoting: GuestIt seems like hardly any of these games actually get released on Steam. I ignore these greenlight batches for the most part now.
It doesn' matter anyway. Who wants to play such crap?

Add that to developers being unable to simply say no when asked about linux support in the steam forums... "We'd like to", "We're going to start looking into it", "We're very interested, definitely a possibility!", "Not for now, but we might after the steam boxes are released!". I don't know if a single one of those games has been ported...
They might as well say "No, there won't be any linux support, but we really want everything we say in the forums to sound positive, and we don't want you to lose interest in this game, even if you'll never really be able to play it!"
