Posted by , | Views: 29,456

Another year is almost up, it's getting chilly and Valve's annual Steam Winter Sale has now gone live so go warm yourself up with a toasty new game.

There's thousands on sale as always. You likely know what you're after already, I'm sure most readers have wishlists full of games ready to be picked up.

If you don't know what to get, I will suggest 10 awesome indie games on sale that no one should pass up on. Every single one of these would be a fantastic choice to add to your collection:

  1. Don't Starve Together - (includes 1 extra copy) 60% off
  2. Hand of Fate 2 - 60% off
  3. Slime Rancher - 60% off
  4. Slay the Spire - 50% off
  5. Oxygen Not Included - 33% off
  6. Dead Cells - 30% off
  7. Streets of Rogue - 30% off
  8. CrossCode - 25% off
  9. Parkitect - 25% off
  10. Baba is You - 20% off

The recently released Linux port of Life is Strange 2 is also on sale, you can get the first episode with 75% off if you want to get a taster of it. Plenty more fantastic Linux ports from Feral Interactive are worth picking up too, check them all out here.

Paradox Development Studio have supported Linux for a long time, with their games also on sale and worth picking up if you enjoy a good strategy game:

For those of you who want to try out some more games with Steam Play Proton, I can easily recommend Deep Rock Galactic which is 33% off right now and Risk of Rain 2 at 20% off. You can see all Linux games currently on sale using this link.

As a little extra, during the Steam Winter Sale you can earn Festivity Tokens when you shop and then use them in the Holiday Market. There's also some special quests to complete, to get extra tokens to spend in the market.

If you pick up anything you're really excited to try, do let us know in the comments. Our Forum is also open if you need a lengthier chat about a specific game or you need help.

denyasisNoooo! Why am I poor?!?

On a side note, how is slime rancher for young kids? In particular, ones that can't read yet. I'd like to introduce them to the world of Linux gaming, but finding games for kids that young (and not so stupidly annoying to an adult) is a lot harder than I thought.

Happy holidays.

If they are that small I would highly recommend GCompris, which you will find for free in most if not all Linux distributions already. My kids loved it (especially they loved TuxPaint) when they where really small.

There is always Minecraft!

My 6 year old adores the Pajama Sam games. Don't know if they are on sale or not but I can't imagine they are very expensive either way.

Anyone played Steel Division?? it's a grand strategy game? I'm looking for something similar to COH2 or Sudden Strike 4. It's a paradox game... so why not? I'm just afraid that it will be too complex. The right amount of time for a SP campaign for me would be 20 up to 50 hours.

Most reports on protondb say that the game runs fine. (at least Normandy 44)

I bought Quantum Break I know from following dxvk development in github that Philip Rebohle has put some serious effort on trying to make the game run decently. imho is a safe bet, protondb comments are outdated.

If they are small, I recommend to play with them in real life. Kids with about 6 years really do not need to play video games. My daughter is 7 and very happy without video games and so was my son.

I've picked up Islanders (50% off), Pathway (40-46% off), Fate Hunters (50% off), and Captain Forever Remix (90% off) in the Steam sale. Very happy with Fate Hunters, which is a similar game to Slay The Spire. Pathway looks improved, compared to its earlier version released earlier in the year (Plus, you can get extra discount if you already own Halfway).

Hoping to generate sufficient Steam Sale Tokens to claim the 5000 token voucher, and then probably use that to get another title.

just realized that if you have money in the wallet that was deposited there before the sale, it doesn't earn tokens.

That is not mutually exclusive, besides playing video games I taught my kids at that age to Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift (my girl that is now 18 is stronger than most boys her age).

I learnt to program basic by myself when I was 7 so I kind of have a different view of these things than you there ;)
