The aim for this page is to be a community driven project that is work in progress and hopefully should show a list of games that will and will not work on Linux from porting it manually.

Warning: Some games may end up not working in future, so buy with care!

Unity files

Manually extracting under Wine or Windows

If you know what engine version the game uses (one way is to try to launch the game with a wrong exectutable, the requested version will be shown as a latter in terminal), you can extract the required Linux files manually. For this you need to unpack the appropriate UnitySetup-Linux-Support-for-Editor-version.exe and extract the files.

If you can't locate the UnitySetup-Linux-Support-for-Editor-version.exe file, one way to obtain it is to download the Unity Editor Download Assistant and try to install the Linux player on your system (you can uncheck all other options including Unity Editor itself, to avoid downloading them needlessly). The appropriate UnitySetup-Linux-Support-for-Editor-version.exe file will be downloaded and saved to the selected directory or Wine's/Windows' %TEMP% folder before installation, even if they fail to be installed due to error. Afterwards, locate the file and you can extract the NSIS installer with the p7zip under Linux or 7-zip under Windows. The files needed will be located in $INSTDIR$_XX_/Variations folder, where XX is a random number.

You can find all the archived Unity versions in one of these places:


Yes or No results are dependant on if the game is actually playable as if it were native. Any issues such as textures are marked as a firm "No."

Most games are capable of working by just downloading the correct Unity versions, changing the name of the "player.x86" files to match the existing .exe and placing "Plugins" and the "Mono" folder in the _Data folder. The rest is generally not needed. Some games like My Summer Car have guides to add mods or just general help.

Shader Issues
