Valve Has Turned On The Greenlight For 34 More Linux Games This April

Posted by , 18 April 2014 at 6:12 pm UTC / 10884 views
That's right folks Valve are bringing the easter cheer lighting the way for another 34 Linux games to come out on Steam!

My personal choice items
These are the games I liked the most!

Escape: Sierra Leone

Escape: Sierra Leone is an exploration and survival game created with the CryEngine 3. You're dropped in an open world, based loosely on the real life Banana Islands, about 20 square kilometers in size. Your only goal is to survive and escape the island. You start with no weapons, no supplies, no idea of where to go. Finding these things is totally up to the player.

Dead Years

This is not just another zombie game. It's a rework of the genre where you have to work as a team with the only friend you have left, your dog!

Get Even
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dnw9dWISvw
Eschewing the usual clichés and gung-ho settings currently inhabiting the FPS genre, Get Even subtlety removes the classic division between single-player and multiplayer experiences to unfold two linked stories.

These are the titles that prominently listed Linux as a platform on the greenlight page.

Man I was really hoping mists of stagnation would go linux. I was looking into the comments and got a tentative maybe from it, Oh well...we'll see.

The games listed above + Popup Dungeons, Draconian Wars all look pretty good. Nice to see NeonXSZ on that list as well.

Worth mentioning was CubeZ is going UE4, so possible we may see a port of that as well.

I hear there was a major content update too (3 months of development work).
