Not to be pedantic but Coffee Stain developed Goat Simulator.

There is an Axiom Verge 2 coming, but only to Epic Store for the first year :-( I hope the dev considers a Linux release when it does eventually come to Steam.

Have a NZXT Kraken? You can use GKraken to configure it on Linux

Glad to see it's still being maintained. I have used GKraken with my CPU cooler from time to time.

Metro Exodus still due on Linux this year, Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition announced

Quoting: mirvI tried Goldberg for a few things and never got it to work.
Feral don't use DRM. They might well rely on features from Steam proper, but that's not quite the same thing. Perhaps the end result might be unable to run a game without Steam, and I dislike that in general, but DRM is in all technical senses quite different.

Feral do use DRM. If you are using a hooky copy of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, after a few minutes of gameplay the main picture will begin to flip over and fly around the screen making it impossible to play. I've witnessed this first-hand (all in the name of research you understand; I have a legit copy!)

At least one of their other games had similar protection.

I'm surprised you couldn't get Goldberg to work as you simply drop in a like-for-like replacement.

Quoting: IggiI guess my bitterness is coming from the fact that almost all of their physical games are bound to Steam (which imho totally defeats the purpose of a physical medium - why would I buy an offline media if I have to be online to be able to use it anyway?)
I understand it depends on the game, but I have never been unable to play a Steam game offline. Sure, it grumbles a bit--the popup message is like "I can't find Steam! The horror!! (sigh) OK, all right, do you want to play offline?"
And then I do. I don't do this all that often, but I sometimes do, and as I said, I've never had any problem doing it.

Just drop in the Goldberg emulator and off you go. The only problem you will have is with some Feral games which actually have Feral's own DRM :-) SoTR's protection was quite impressive for a Linux game.

I'm assuming that the cries for GOG support for M:E in this forum and /r/linux_gaming are due to the massive investment that CD Projekt has made in Linux libraries and gaming over the last few years..?

Valve are going to have to work hard to keep up!

Backed. Failbetter Games can do no wrong in my eyes :-)
