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

If you check out the forum, there's a pretty long thread on this topic. Seems like there are a lot of Arch guys around these days.

Well sad news in a way for the Linux community. Timothee "TTIMO" Besset has resigned from iD Software and move on to another game company that isn't do FSP or eSports games.


Sad to see him go but I can understand. I was really hoping for a port of RAGE at some point.

I thought I would mention that customers now have the option to download their games from the website without using the client. This should given developers the option to post their RPM and DEB versions of their games if they have them.

I have not had a chance to get all developers to upload their standalone versions. If there is a game you want without a standalone version, PM the developer and ask them to upload a standalone version for you.

If you click on the game name under Releases, then choose "Standalone file" near the bottom. You can download the standalone versions from the website without needing the client.

i ve beaten the old [you cant game on linux] - phrase out of some classmates after showing them some cool stuff like oil-rush, trine, savage 2 and shadowgrounds. some even said that linux wasnt designed for this and linux should stay an non-graphical server system! I dont think so, you can do anything with linux gaming too!
keep up the good work!

Trine 2 for Linux is suppose to be coming out soon since the release date was given as after the first of the year. So there is another game with great graphics and game play that you will be able to point to as well.

Right now we have about 113 Linux games siting on the system with more in the pipeline. So there may not be as many choices as Windows but there are quite a few Linux games out there. I also know that I am trying to talk with about 20+ commercial developers to get their Linux games on the system but most of them have not responded to my emails.
