Steam Summer Sale 2019 is live, here’s what to look out for Linux fans

Posted by , | Views: 8,569

Another year, another massive sale is now live on Steam. Let’s take a look at what Valve are doing this year and what you should be looking out for.

This time around, Valve aren’t doing any special trading cards. They’re trying something a little different! You will be entering the "Steam Grand Prix" by joining a team (go team Hare!), earning points for rewards and having a shot at winning some free games in the process. Sounds like a good bit of fun, the specific-game challenges are a nice touch.

As for what to pick up? That’s very subjective but I’ve decided to break it down into some lists for you this year to do it a little differently. All games will be ordered from highest to lowest discount at time of writing.

Indie Games - Some fun titles with Linux support from smaller developers, those who likely need that bit of extra support.

 

Bigger Games - Big and beautiful, featuring Linux support.

 

Steam Play - Games worth checking out, that work well.

 

Obviously there's a ton more, far more than I could ever recommend personally, those are just some games I consider to be worthy of some attention.

The sale ends on July 9th. Plenty of time, as expected the Steam store completely died when the sale went live and is still up and down even now, so picking titles has been difficult. I may add more suggestions later.

Do come back and let us know what awesome deal you pick up!

Can't believe I saw the Two Point Hospital: Healthy Collection bundle for 70% off. The second it lands on my cart the discount drops to 51% and it's stayed there since.

So apparently there are people that managed to get beyond the bad gateway.

@Ehvis Mash & destroy that F5 key ! Oddly enough the shopping cart works well...

Interesting event, although I don't have any games currently tied to its achievements. Very interesting prizes too. The way it's designed, though, it looks like everyone should just join the same team (i.e. corgi) to ensure they are eligible for the free games.

Following games added to my library:

  • ATOM RPG

  • ISLANDERS
