There's so many Linux games on sale right now, it's a good time if you're skint

Posted by , / 13279 views

Suffering from a lack of funds and games? The good news is that there's a lot of games on sale. The bad news? You're going to be even more skint.

First up, the Humble Store still has a big sale on for another ~3 hours, be quick! Buying there helps charity too, you even get to choose what charity. So you could give 5% of your purchase to the Free Software Foundation, there's many to pick from.

So goodies from Humble Store include:

See everything on sale for Linux on the Humble Store here.

Also, GOG now has a big sale on too and theirs lasts until the 25th of September. Here's some good picks from GOG:

See everything GOG have that supports Linux that's on sale here.

There's also still the Humble Very Positive 2 Bundle, which has great titles like RIVE and Shadow of Mordor.

Bundle Stars also still have some cracking good deals on too, like the Best of Indie Legends 2 Bundle with 7 Linux titles. Titles include SpeedRunners, Door Kickers and more. You can see everything Bundle Stars stocks that's on sale and has Linux support here.

Have you pick up any super awesome deals lately? Tell everyone what they're missing out on in the comments and help your fellow Linux gamers!

Going to wait on buying Deus Ex until I get a new 4k high end video card. The FuryX won't cut the mustard, so maybe a 1080TI sometime down the path, probably end up being next year given how the industry is for GPU's atm. IMO VEGA was hugely disappointing for me so I doubt AMD will come up with anything better any time soon.

I bought the lowest-tier Humble Bundle, because RIVE looks really interesting. Haven't played yet, though.

My skinthood is so pronounced these days, that I can't go any further. As a recommendation, however, check this out:

Dustforce DX on GOG at 90% off

Dustforce is an absolute masterpiece, and they're giving it away at $0.99 on GOG right now.

Is it weird that the hostname for my desktop system is 'skint'?

There's also a big Paradox sale that just started to coincide with the release of patch 1.8 and Synthetic Dawn for Stellaris.

I picked up 'Slain: Back from Hell' on GOG. Played some of it. Looks like a great Saturday morning game to rock as my kids get up and ready for the day.

Yeah it could be great. But instead you can't have this one until you have a Steam account linked to your Humble account. Need a Steam account + Humble account to have a DRM-Free game, ironic isn't it ? That's a shame.

It's quite bad... My future purchases will be GOG/Itch.io only i think.

Yeah. The last free game giveaway was also like that, Psychonauts. I had to give away the key and then once the person activated it, I was able to get the DRM-FREE version of the game on HB.

I'm still sticking with HB, though but GOG and itch.io get first swing.
