Your weekly look at some interesting Linux games and bundles on sale

By - | Views: 5,540

Another week, another look at what's currently on sale for Linux gamers and developers and we have some pretty good picks this week.

Firstly, you can grab the rather good roguelike MidBoss on Humble Store, itch.io and Steam with 40% off so take your pick with what store you prefer there. Scaine recently wrote up a review of it too, check it out.

GOG have a new weekly sale up that has a good few Linux titles like:

Meanwhile over on Steam, they also have a few of my favourites on sale too:

As for Humble Store/Bundle:

Also, Humble have two book bundles for those of you wanting to look at making your own games. There's The Humble Book Bundle: Game Design & Puzzlecraft and The Humble Book Bundle: Program Your Own Games and while not all the books will be useful, some seem pretty interesting.

Hello!

Are they any good, do they have an interesting story or anything?

Simple answer is yes, they are very good, the artwork in all of them is brilliant, the storylines are interesting, I have 39 of the 61 games available on Steam & plan to get the rest at some point.

Across the games you'll find Ghosts, Zombies, Vampires, Werewolves, Curses, Magic, Murders, Kidnappings, Blackmail, Airships, Robots, Gods, Demons & lots & lots of puzzles.

Cool, I might check them out! I have not played much of that kind of game, but it might be time I guess! Thanks for the thoughts.

Also, Hard West is at a crazy 2€ on Steam. It runs ok on my Linux system, though the FPS is not that high.
I also picked Tropico 5 Complete up for 7,77€ at gamesplanet.fr.

Storylines in the AF games tend to be a bit melodramatic, but to the point of being charming rather than repelling. Don't look for anything too advanced there, but do look for enjoyable puzzles and fantastic art, with a bit of variety in style from title to title.

Seems it must have ended early. Switched it to a different one.

Quoting: PatolaThere's also the Fanatical Killer Bundle with 4 linux games, including Tölva, for only US$ 4.99.
And, according to the site, the Linux requirement seems are actually quite modest:
“Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system”
That’s it! No i5 or fancy RAM. Nop. Just a processor and OS as long as they’re 64 bit.
ahahahahah

Now for real: thanks for the tip!

Looks like The Swindle actually has a Linux build too. Not tried it to see if it works yet though.
