The Steam 2016 Halloween sale has some nice Linux games for cheap

By - | Views: 22,046
If you're a bit low on funds, you might like to know that Steam is doing a 2016 Halloween sale with some nice Linux games on offer.

Here's some choice picks for you:
7 Days to Die - 60% off
System Shock 2 - 75% off
Oxenfree - 75% off (I've been told this is really good, so I just picked up a copy)
Layers of Fear - 50% off
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - 75% off
Mad Max - 50% off
Shadow of Mordor - 50% off
Company of Heroes 2 - 75% off
Black Mesa - 60% (only just came to Linux!)

There's plenty more, but those are some of what I think are the best deals going. Quite amazing that Mad Max is already 50% off and it has only recently come to Linux. Here's a chance for people on the fence to pick the game up cheaper, while still supporting Feral and Linux gaming directly from Steam.

I've been told great things about Oxenfree, so I've personally purchased it and I'm excited to finally give it a go, it's been on my list for ages. I've also picked up Black Mesa now it's on Linux.

What have you picked up? I do love a good sale. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

It's not Halloween-related, but I'm buying the three "Let's Explore" games for my kids since it's $2.99 for all three. That's 80% off the normal bundle, or 86% off buying them individually.

They run on Linux "natively" (the Steam version uses ScummVM) and they run very well. These games are kids exploration/learning games with lots of silly environment interactions. I'd estimate that they're good for ages 3-8.

I recently came across the old CD version of Let's Explore the Airport, got it running in ScummVM and my kids love it. I was planning on just getting the other two, but right now it's cheaper to buy all three on Steam than to buy only two.

Edit: They also run well in the Android version of ScummVM. These old point and click games work well on tablets.

But unfortunately as a Windows-only key. You can still play it on Linux, but Feral won't get any money from that sale, afaik.

My store page is properly filtering Linux-only titles ever since adding it to preferences. I wonder why it doesn't work for so many other people.

EDIT: Damn, Killing Floor 2 is cheap right now. A real shame they're dragging their feet on the Linux release.

Liamdawe, I finished Oxenfree a couple months back. It's a fantastic game. It's similar to Stranger Things, if you've watched that at all.

For those interested GOG has a some Linux games on sale in a Halloween themed sale as well. Not as many but for DRM free fans there's some good ones.

Here's a link

Me too, all of a sudden. I think they've fixed it quite recently.

How about Ruzar - The Life Stone?

Black Mesa, that is a total insta-buy for me...
