Welcome to the Linux Gamers group. This group is governed by people interested in using the Linux operating system for gaming or game creation. Since quite some time Linux is no more a niche product hostile to advanced and demanding games. With big companies like IDSoftware releasing their games also for Linux the interest and acceptance of this system has grown over time. In comparison to other systems Linux offers a couple of unique features as well as particularities and troubles when it gets down to gaming. It's the goal of this club to promote and support Linux gaming.

Let the games begin :D

Nowadays, GNU/Linux is slowly becoming a gaming heaven.: Desura, Humble Bundle, Gameolith and Upcoming Steam.

It's not that evil, and it might actually help the Linux world tremendously by bringing more players to this OS.

It brings DRM-Lock-Down and stealing games (you don't "own" your "bought" games... they can take it from you at will!). No, Steam "is" evil... very evil. Steam coming to Linux is the worst that can happen.

Hi all

Just to let everyone know that Defense Grid 2 is currently on kickstarter and a stretch goal is Linux support.


If you are interested get behind it and hopefully we can get Defense Grid on Linux. I have also asked whether they will consider a Desura release.

I'm getting really tired of Desura mucking up on Linux. Bought two games today that worked fine as demos and then crashed/don't work after I bought the full version.

Please see:
and Desura.com

... if you would like Desura to be supported again in the latest Humble Indie Bundle.

Any alternative ideas are welcome! :)

I don't know how much good this will do, but I started a petition to protest the inclusion of a non-native game in a Humble Indie Bundle:

Please add your signature. It is worded in a very constructive way and it seemed like the most civil way to get our point across.
