The itch.io Winter Sale is live with plenty of indie games going cheap

Posted by , | Views: 5,479

For those who like to support the little one, itch.io have their own Winter Sale now live and there's a good choice of Linux games on sale.

While a lot of the focus on major sales ends up with people waiting on Steam, let's not forget the other smaller stores that support Linux. You can find some real gems on itch as well, while also supporting the developer even more since itch allows developers to set whatever percentage they like to give back to the itch store.

Some fun picks for Linux gamers:

As a reminder, to help you keep all your games up to date itch also have their own client. It's slick, it's open source and I haven't encountered many issues with it.

See the full list of Linux games on sale here. The sale ends on the 27th at 6PM UTC.

I like what the dev of Dicey Dungeons said about itch.io:

Dicey Dungeons is really good. And it's been fun to play through the different development phases so far.

As the developer of the client, I couldn't pay for a better review honestly. Thanks for the chuckle!

You know, in the context of a sale like this it would be nice to have stuff you've put into a collection indicate whether it's on sale or not. I've got a "Wishlist" collection and I'd love to be able to just look at it and see, rather than going to each individual page or scrolling through all the stuff on sale.

Try this:

Also, be sure to read each game page carefully, 'cause some of them actually mention that you get a steam key either after the purchase, or when the game is fully released.

It might help

Oh, that's good. From the name I never would have thought that's what it did. Very handy though, thanks. Gonna get Crossing to the Cold Valley too, since I see it's on sale for only a quarter.

Tacoma is an interesting experience, I recommend it if you like exploring environments and being immersed in a story.
