Sounds like Linux game downloads are popular on game store itch

I think Steam is more easy on the refund. I've refunded maybe 30 games, some several times to see if they were improved, some i knew i didn't want to play, but i wanted to see a piece of them to get the feel... Not sure i could do that on GoG, but maybe, i don't know.

The Linux version of squad based Roguelike 'Steam Marines' has nearly become profitable
14 May 2018 at 11:28 am UTC

Well, it's not a great game anyway, so it's "normal" to have low numbers every where. It's not a bad game neither, thought.

Also, Linux games should/must come Day1 or very close to Day1. Too many games are on the way, and it's usually more attractive for many to play "the same game as the neighbour". If Linux comes 6 months later, in the meantime i probably will have many other similar games to pick from, so why should i look back ?

I mean, alright, if you are a late buyer, you have a more stable, patched, balanced games, most of the time, but you are also a lone one.

I really prefer itchio client over Steam client, even if i have much more games on Steam, because of how massive and popular is Steam, and many games i like simply don't exist outside of Steam.

But i tend to pick my games on itch whenever i can.

Then i would go to Humble, Steam and lastly, on GoG (i think they consider Linux users without much care, with not up to date games, absence of Galaxy, etc).

Steam still has one big advantage left over the others so far : you can get a refund.

The developer of Helium Rain gave an update on their sales, low overall sales but a high Linux percentage

Already bought, played, enjoyed, advertized, and i'm only waiting for full release to replay it to avoid being "burned" while in Early Access.

I really liked it so far.

Free and open source RTS 'Zero-K' releases on Steam on April 27th
12 April 2018 at 7:30 pm UTC

I play it from time to time since several years.
Steam may give them more viewers... and troubles, too.
Hope it will become bigger, better, badder, then !

Build a space station and colonise planets in The Spatials: Galactology, leaving Early Access on April 18th
12 April 2018 at 2:53 pm UTC

The Spatials was already nice, this Galactology is really taking shape update after update. I've been enjoying it a lot already, now i'm only waiting for full release to start again.

Indirect god sim 'Crest' released last month with Linux support
5 April 2018 at 4:37 pm UTC

I want to like this game since maybe 2 years, but i can't. It's to shallow and i don't feel i'm needed at all. I don't feel i'm a god, powerful, meaningful, and my impacts in the world are not very impressive.

Project 5: Sightseer is finally adding some PvE content to the exploration sandbox game
1 April 2018 at 7:29 pm UTC

Well, empty, maybe, but i did enjoy my 45 hours on it, it has charisma. Just waiting for the "final" product to replay it again.

Zombasite - Orc Schism, the expansion to the action RPG is out adding more content
21 March 2018 at 6:13 pm UTC

I prefer Drox over the other games, partially because the space is less ugly to draw with an old engime, and more appealing to me. But my main grip with Soldak is the general artistic taste, not the technical engine itself...

Anyway, the games are great, and if you didn't yet, you should play Drox and Zombasite (IMO the previous games are obsolete because Zombasite does everything better).
