There's a pretty good compatibility list available.

It unfortunate, but it makes sense. The game Anodyne had the same problem with Adobe AIR and has since dropped official Linux support (but as of a few years ago Anodyne was still playable if you configure some things manually).

QuoteAt the time we started development, Adobe was strongly supporting Linux

I don't really buy this. When I bought Anodyne in 2013, it was a struggle getting it working on Linux even with the developer and other Linux users being very helpful in the Steam forums. This wasn't a new situation in 2013, so when they launched their kickstarter in 2012, Adobe's support for AIR on Linux was definitely not "strong".

I get that they thought they'd be able to make it work on Linux with AIR, but let's not put all the blame on Adobe. There has never been good Linux support from Adobe.

Myst 25th Anniversary Collection will not being seeing a Linux release for now

This is typical of Cyan. They seem afraid of a Linux build not being perfect. RealMyst Masterpiece Edition runs on Unity and Obduction runs on Unreal Engine 4, but no Linux support. I even messaged them a couple times offering to help debug and test Linux builds of these games for them, but they never responded about that.

I hope they allow the touch screen to act as mouse inputs on phones/tablets. That would be a great way to play mouse-based games without a PC.

The open source fantasy turn-based strategy game 'Battle for Wesnoth' is now on Steam

This was one of the first Linux games I played back in 2004. I think it was version 0.7 or 0.8 back then.

Eastshade, an absolutely gorgeous looking adventure game about a travelling painter will come to Linux

I'm looking forward to this. I was looking forward to Leaving Lyndow too, but didn't end up playing it since it never came to Linux. I'm glad that they're considering Linux this time. Thanks for the info. This one wasn't on my radar yet.

It took them a long time, but GOG now have Tiny and Big: Grandpa's Leftovers for Linux

I played this years ago on Steam. I highly recommend it. It's a bit short, but the physics are really fun and the art style & characters are really enjoyable. I'm glad to see that they polished it. The textures seem to be better and multi-monitor support was an issue when I played it, so I'm glad they fixed that.

GOG release a bunch of SNK NEO GEO classics, all with Linux support

I wish they'd give Windjammers this treatment, but I doubt they will given the Playstation remaster that just came out. They want to milk that version for $$$ and probably won't take the time to port that to Linux.

Outlast Deluxe Edition is currently free on the Humble Store

g000hNot signing up for an account - well, it's up to you, but I like getting my hands on these various offers (and some of them are DRM Free, e.g. this Outlast has Steam keys and DRM free downloads)

No, you cannot get it for free as DRM-free Download. I tried to 'buy' it (I do have a Humble account), but it leads to a page that says that I have to link my Steam account to the Humble Account.

Looking at the FAQ this seems to be the case for any free game.

I find that quite a disrespect of DRM-free users, and for me this makes Humble lose all the bonus points they got with their last 'Very Positive Bundle 2'

You do get a DRM-free download, at least in this case. I "bought" this free package and have both Steam keys and DRM downloads in my Humble library now. Unfortunately, there's no DRM-free download of the DLC for Mac or Linux. There is a DRM-free download of the DLC for Windows, so maybe you can bug the developer to upload the Linux version too.
