The Steam Greenlight program initiated by Valve has just cleared eight great games that will arrive on Linux, along with the other platforms.
Now that Steam for Linux
is a certainty, a lot of developers want to see their games on Linux, especially if their games can be ported easily.
The latest wave of games that passed through the Steam Greenlight program, a sort of community-driven publishing service, contains eight titles that will also be available on Linux.
In Startforce, you will have to gather resources, build bases, craft your gear, and survive on an alien planet. As you play, the StarForge universe will procedurally unfold itself around you in a unique way each time.
Interstellar Marines is a game that sought help on Kickstarter and now it's going to be on Steam. This game is a cooperative First Person Simulator and in which the players experience a believable future where a first contact with another sentient species is imminent.
Euro Truck Simulator 2 is part of a well-established franchise developed by SCS Software. Players will get to drive eight highly detailed truck models, with design based on real European vehicles, in 60 cities connected by highways and local roads.
Folk Tale will place gamers in a comedy-fantasy world in which you have to lead your illiterate subjects to greatness, in spite of their moronic efforts to undermine you power.
The game provides complete camera freedom and three easy-switch camera modes, FPS, TPS and RTS.
Waking Mars is one of most interesting titles to arrive on the Linux platform. The player will have to master and stabilize an alien environment and decide the fate of a planet.
Kinetic Void is a 3D space adventure focusing on customization and enjoyable space simulation, a game that has no equal on the Linux platform.
Octodad: Dadliest Catch is the sequel to Octodad and it's a third-person adventure game about destruction, deception, and fatherhood.
Gear Up is the latest game on this select list. It's an online multiplayer game where you build tanks and participate in online challenges such as battles, races and other missions.
Whether these games will be available when Steam for Linux makes its official debut is still uncertain, but they do have Linux support.
