Prison Architect V1.0 Confirmed For October

This is one of my favorite games on Linux. I usually wait for the final version, but couldn´t keep my hands off on this one. So far I´ve played over 100 hours, and I´m sure I will put at least 100 more once the final version is out!.

Bought it a few days ago, and it´s a really nice game! Runs great (except for one crash) on my GTX770.

BeamboomIt's impossible to dislike Aspyr.

Indeed. Aspyr and SCS software.

Clockwork Empires City Builder Linux Build Due Soon
5 November 2014 at 1:48 pm UTC

Looks nice. There will never be too many simulator games, especially city building ones! Still playing games like Pharao, Caesar 3 and RCT, and I started playing those over 10 years ago and they just never gets old. Although it´s nice with some new fresh games sometimes too.

Bad news. Really looking forward to this game, already knew it was deleyed for Linux, but now it will probably be deleyed even more. :/

lavei think the best sub 150€ wheel for linux would be the Logitech Driving Force Pro.
Thanks. It actually looks quite nice.

Does it work "out of the box" or do you have to compile drivers manually? Nothing wrong with getting my hands dirty but drivers thats already in the kernel are less likely to break during upgrades and are usually less annoying. Usually when buying new hardware i try to support the manufacturers that are supporting Linux by making OSS drivers.

If you want to step up a bit on the price I recommend the Logitech G27 wheel. It´s really nice and with a good feel. I´d say that the clutch and the gears will add a lot of extra enjoyment of racing, so if you don´t sit on a real tight budget, I´d go for the G27 or another good wheel. I´ve used it in Linux, I think I had to configure it a litte bit with LTWheelConf, but it was easy (I´m still calling myself a Linux noob). The problem is the lack of games. It works with ETS2, which I love, but like lave said, the force feedback doesn´t work, and for me it ruins the whole experience. I also managed to get it working with Iracing, which is not native but has a .deb installation package. I didn´t like the game though, so for now I have Windows on my main rig mainly so that I can race properly.

Train Fever Business Simulation Game Now On Linux

Looks interesting. Although the Steam rewievs will make me wait for a while. But if there is a discount I definitly will pick it up.

fleskThis has annoyed me for ages. The only way to currently find these games is by digging through SteamDB (or following the SteamDB_Linux bot on Twitter), articles like these or by word of mouth. The average gamer probably isn't going to discover these games unless they pop up in a sale, feature or bundle and I'm almost certain Linux sales suffer because of it.

One could also go through the Linux games entry on Steam. I have done that like once a month since Steam for Linux was released, but since there are 663 games at the moment it starts to take too long time to go through all the 27 pages. One good thing though is that Valve usually promotes a AAA game quite big when released on Linux, not to mention GoL and the rest of the community promoting games when being released on Linux. But I agree, Valve should fix the bug.

Feral Interactive Wish To Know Why You Game On Linux
4 September 2014 at 8:26 am UTC Likes: 2

The article itself summarize quite well why I use Linux. Although I don´t mind paying for software since it will cost money and time for people to code it etc. What I do love about open source is that it´s free so I may use it despite not having any money, like a trial. For instance I´ve been using LM for like 3 years now. First 2 years I were quite poor, but now I have some more money and since I really like LM I´ve donated about 50$ so far, and more will come. When I was younger I pirated Windows, games etc and of course I know it´s wrong. But I didn´t have any money, so I would not have bought the software anyway. What I´m trying to say is that I love the "pay what you can afford" mentality, along with all the other benefits from Linux mentioned in the article and by other users.

Cities Skylines, A City Builder Announced From Paradox & It's Coming To Linux
19 August 2014 at 7:33 am UTC

This is exactly what´s needed on Linux along with some good racing games. I know Project Cars is confirmed, but it will probably be another 6 months before release. I hope Grid 2 or Grid Autosport will get a release in the future.
Can´t wait to have some nice city builder on Linux, as the Cities in motion games aren´t really city builders. Still waiting to hear something about Banished on Linux too.

Football Manager 2015 Will Support Linux Again
9 August 2014 at 6:31 am UTC

hardpenguinThe only game you can buy in game store in box version with penguin on the cover

Bought a retail copy of FM 14 solely because of that. Haven´t bought a retail PC game in ages before that.

I really like their support for Linux, unfortunately the game is a bit too hard for me, which makes it quite boring to play.
