Steam Lights The Green Light For More Linux Games

Posted by , 6 February 2014 at 3:22 pm UTC / 9457 views
Another batch of titles have been greenlit to be on Steam, we give you the run-down on what ones you can expect to see on Linux.

The list below are all of the titles that specifically listed Linux as a supported platform.

My Stand-Out Game Picks
These two I personally feel look the most interesting.

Murder Miners - A highly rated game originally on Xbox Live Indie Arcade, an FPS game with blocky graphics and game-play inspired by Halo.

Matador - An isometric vehicle action game with some really nice looking graphics.

All the rest

CATDAMMIT! Director's Cat - A rather fancy looking arcade game where you play a milkoholic hobo cat!

The Crack - Tower defence and FPS hybrid.

Cuebox : The Real 3D Pool - Pretty much as the title says, 3D pool!

Detective Grimoire - Adventure game.

Energy Hook - Combines grappling hook, a jet pack and racing.

Gear Jack - A slide and jump game.

Kromaia - A fast paced arcade shooter, looks like it can get pretty insane.

KTBG: Kill The Bad Guy - An odd puzzle game where your objective is to set traps for a bad guy.

Mage's Initiation: Reign of the Elements - A 2D point and click RPG/Adventure game.

Master Spy - A stealth based platformer game with interesting looking retro cutscenes.

The Mims Beginning - A cute looking strategy game where you control a bunch of little "Mims".

Poltergeist: Pixelated Horror - A puzzle game where you play as a ghost trying to scare people.

Reversion: A Sci-Fi Adventure Game - A science-fiction Point & Click Adventure Game.

Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball - A fast paced dodgeball game with robots!

Steam Battle - A free 2 play massively multiplayer vehicle warfare game with a steampunk theme.
This would be in my top picks, but since it is free 2 play I can't tell if it will be a lame pay 2 win game or not. I hope it is not pay 2 win as it looks quite fun.

Sunrider - A freeware anime/manga style visual novel/tactical RPG.

Tech Executive Tycoon - A business management Simulation/Strategy game that puts you in the role of the CEO of a tech company.

I hope you guys find this useful me picking them all out, the full list can be found here.

The Mims still has their Indiegogo project running for 6 more days

Personally to pick out interesting games on Steam I look at the list of demos… that’s rather easy… there’s been only one new demo in the past 3 or so months.

The Mims has a playable demo, and I had a lot of fun with it this afternoon. I will certainly buy it once it comes out on Steam; RTS games are few and far between for Linux, and this is at least as original a concept as the OSS game Globulation, and has some pretty spiffy graphics.

NeonXSZ also needs our help getting Green-lighted for Linux.

Help show this game dev that we Linux people are serious about our gaming and give it a +1.
