I am considering getting Rogue Stormers. It looks fun, and has co-op. But the reviews are not all that encouraging.

I just picked of Company of Heroes 2 yesterday in a Bundlestars Star Deal flash sale. It was US$8 for 24 hours.

Bundlestars are doing some decent bundles at the moment, for instance this one:

https://www.bundlestars.com/en/bundle/all-stars-8-bundle

£2.39 for ten games, some pretty decent ones, and 5 of those for Linux. The Neon bundle is okay too.

On Steam, I'd recommend "Toki Tori" puzzler-platformer game (own it, played it) - currently 90% discount = £0.69

Also, "BADLAND: GOTY Edition" on Steam is 85% off at £1.34

EDIT:

And *just* spotted Grim Fandango Remastered on GOG at 80% off discount = £1.99

I recommend getting and playing To the Moon. It has this old jRPG graphics, but is more of an adventure/puzzle game than an RPG. The story is engaging, music excellent. One thing that might be negative for some: overwhelming sadness, even if the story offers some glimpses of hope and even joy.

On another note, Fumiko!, a platformer about an AI, has been released and it's 25% off. http://store.steampowered.com/app/563810/

So does Bundle Stars or does it not sell the actual Linux keys?

Bundle Stars sales windows keys only. So guys above did not support Linux gaming at all.

That's unfortunate. But how can you tell? I mean, generally? There are many perfectly legitimate shops (also regional ones) that display a Tux icon. How would I know that it is not an actual Linux key? It's like buying milk that says organic on the package, but is actually just regular milk.

To be clear this only affects external porters. For all normal developers it shouldn't matter.

Give To The Moon a try if you want to feel sad, and SOMA if you, well... want to feel sad and very alone.
No, seriously: Both are great games.
