Hi I'm Tim Jung, the newest volunteer of team Desura, and I've taken up the role as the "Linux Games Lead". What this means is that I'll be the main person responsible for getting Linux games listed on Desura, and working with the developer/publishers to keep those games updated. With the Desura Linux client being released soon, it's going to be very interesting to see which community requested features will be implemented, and how it affects the Linux gaming community.
A little background about me:
Having used computers since 1978, it was amazing to stumble across Linux around 1994 or so. I fell in love with the idea of a Unix like system that could run on my desktop computer. Linux has come a long way since then, and so has the Linux gaming community. Lately, I have been playing Steel Storm: Burning Retribution, a great indie game. Games like this are what Desura focuses on and I'm looking forward to helping Desura become a top place for indie developers to showcase their Linux friendly games. It won't just be indie games though, as there are plans to carry all the entertaining and fun Linux games we can get our hands on.
I'm going to be putting quite a bit of work into the catalog prior to the beta launch. If there are specific Linux games that you would like to see let me know by PM and I will work on adding them to Desura.
