Steam has put up a Spring Cleaning Event featuring multiple Linux games that you can play for free from now until May 28th. During the event, you can also earn the new Spring Cleaning badge, if you're bothered about that sort of thing.

Here's the titles that support Linux:

All apart from Left 4 Dead 2 are also on sale, so if you decide after a few hours that you enjoy them you can pick them up cheaper than normal.

Unfortunately, their badge tasks are not platform filtered...

I would recommend to try out Tyranny. The combat balance has some issues, but I really liked the story and setting.

So , i screwed a little bit.

In their badge process quests , one of the section contains two Windows only games which when i was on Windows added , some shitty games.

So as a workaround i permanently removed them from my account but they're still staying here as suitable ones.

Maybe i should raise an issue on Steam Github to fix this or DM'ing to Plagman on Twitter.

I use a Python script which emulates playing a game for getting Steam cards drop. Create file run_app_id.py containing this:
#!/usr/bin/python2 import os import time from ctypes import CDLL import sys steam_api = CDLL('./libsteam_api64.so') str_app_id = sys.argv[1] os.environ["SteamAppId"] = str_app_id steam_api.SteamAPI_Init() time.sleep(9999999999999)
Then copy libsteam_api64.so from the Steam folder next to that file and run it in the terminal with "./run_app_id.py xxxxxx" (where xxxxxx is AppID of a desired game). With that, all tasks can be done in a minute.

Anyone know how long you need to play in order to qualify for the trophies?

1 or 2 minutes. Maybe even logging in and off would be sufficient.

Starting up the game is enough, I did several this morning.

Thanks... I played Osmos for a short 2 minutes... nothing happened.

I reloaded the page with the trophies and only then did it show up.

Ah yes. I had the same even after the first page update; needed a second one.
