Posted by , | Views: 6,652

Bored? Tired of your current game selection? We're here to save your week showing you some of the best Linux gaming deals going right now.

First up, Fanatical have a nice Aspyr Media pick and mix bundle maker where you can grab multiple titles together for a decent price like Borderlands 2, Borderlands The Pre Sequel, InnerSpace, Layers of Fear and more.

For you DRM free loving fans, GOG have another week-long sale with quite a varied selection like Firewatch, Observer, Slime Rancher and plenty more.

Humble Bundle have just under a week left for The Humble Double Fine Presents Bundle with multiple Linux games including Gang Beasts and Escape Goat 2.

Additionally the Humble Store Winter Sale is still on for only two more days, with a lot of exceptional Linux games going super cheap like DiRT Rally, To the Moon, EVERSPACE, Overfall, Mad Max, Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun and tons more.

Steam is also doing a bunch of sales on various titles (although there's not a lot that are worth pointing out) like Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth, Megaquarium and you can see all the Linux games here.

If you've picked up a great deal lately, do let everyone know in the comments.

I have about 700 titles backlogged... and with Proton now it'll only grow.

I grabbed a couple of games recently, which are no longer discounted. One of those was Haque. I needed to search Steam Community forum to find out that one of the game's text files needs to have its capitalisation changed for the Linux release to work properly (doh).

Thinking about the Double Fine bundle, but I have another week to make up my mind. Also thinking about the Aspyr pick-and-mix sale on Fanatical.

I got beyond Earth + the DLC and Geometry Wars 3 from the Aspyr sale. I held back on Beyond Earth despite liking Civilisation and scifi games due to the initial bad reviews, but read that the DLC fixes a lot, and for that price I take a chance, and Geometry wars looks like a fun arcade shooter.

Got DiRT Rally on the winter Steam sale, and it's really an amazingly fun racing game - and I don't even like racing games. Works great with the Steam controller too.

Fanatical's new Reaper Bundle has some good stuff in it (e.g. Immortal Redneck, Renowned Explorers, Figment, Payday 2, etc).

Also, I grabbed Indiegala's Hump-Day Bundle mainly for Deep Sixed, but it also has Shadwen, and a couple of other Linux titles.
