Iconoclasts would be my pick.

As for a joke SPOILER: SWEARING:

Spoiler, click me
Steve: I propose we change the command MAN to FUCKING
Elen: What!? That's stupid, MAN makes the most sense. It stands for manual, duh.
Steve: Yeah but most linux user are men and they never read manuals instead they try everything else then end up swearing.
Michael: Yeah, usually end up typing FUCKING FUCK FUCK, I always forget there is usually a MAN page.
Chris: Hmm yeah sounds good to me.
Elen: FUCKING HELL..
No fucking entry for hell

The developer of Clone Drone in the Danger Zone is open to Linux support

This has been on my wish list for a while, I would love to play this one!

The totally hilarious party game 'Move or Die' has a free content update

I only get a black screen then it returns to desktop, steam says it's "running" and I have to terminate process to quit the game.

System is Arch linux.

The Jackbox Party Pack 4 has a beta available for Linux gamers

It's working perfectly for me, I hope the other party packs can get a linux release too!

The Steam Winter Sale is now live
22 December 2017 at 7:38 am UTC

I picked up:

* Jackbox party pack 4 (has working linux build but not "supported"
* Poly bridge
* Hand of Fate 2
* Deus Ex collections
* Hollow Knight

I will probably be playing the party pack this christmas or new years party. I have 'keep talking and no on explodes' and a few other linux party games so this should be a good collection of fun this year.

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes adds a Linux Beta, not officially supported

QuoteIf it starts working in VR, a bit of advice; set up a table and chair in the approximate positions in game. A few too many times someone gets up after being exploded and tries to set down the controls on the VR table, and there isn't one, they've just dropped your expensive controllers on the ground!

I almost did it myself twice!


lol, very sound advice. I'm just not convinced that VR is better for a game like this, I like to switch out people so every one has a go and putting on a headset, fitting it for everyone ( adjusting, focal distance, etc ) its got to be just right or the experience isn't the best.

The rather silly and quite good 'Crashlands' is now officially on Linux

An easier option would be to set env "LD_PRELOAD=libcurl-compat.so.4.5.0" %command% as the launch option.

This should be fixed soon and I think it only affects non ubuntu users?

Oh this game is a blast, I played it last year in wine with the family for christmas, we all had a good time. I hope to play this at the new years party with some mates, it should make for some good times... also jackox 4 has a working linux build and there is a repo for jackbox 2 and 3, it would be good to have more party games.[

In the Valley of Gods announced from Firewatch developer Campo Santo, confirmed to Linux

Looks bloody amazing.. I hope there is some good game-play this time, I love their games but they have no replay value. All art and no play make homer go something something..
