The Long Dark is one of those games I haven't tried yet but would love to. I've heard lots of great things about it.

Not a Hero is a fast paced and super fun pixelart game about a politician ruling a town trough his gritty henchmen with guns. Lots of guns. I love it!

Stealth Bastard Deluxe is a fun puzzle game with lots of small puzzles you can play for 30 minutes or so at a time. If you're able to stop yourself from going to the next room. Test both your brain and reaction time.

They have a winter sale now with some great discounts, so here's a thread of Linux friendly games I've played and loved (and maybe some I'd love to play).

Some games are on sale for less than 24 hours, while others are on sale for 5 more days. So hurry up!

Bonus: Trough my link 25% goes to charity! That's like almost half or something…

If you like games and charity, please boost. Kthxby

Okay, well it's both.

Jesus! I just played a game against a human online, and I was winning so much I felt bad for the other player. Until the very end when I made a couple of mistakes and we ended up in exactly this same position! And then they won! smh! Great game!

Have you heard of the Royal game of Ur?

It's a 4000 year old game found in a royal gravesite in the ancient city of Ur. What's truly amazing about it is that we've also found a clay tablet with the rules for it! The oldest rule book in the world!

I had not heard of it, until I found this beautiful Free and open source online digital version of it! It looks great, and it's fun too! And you can play two player locally

Give it a go and let me know what you think!

This article has a good overview of some works that are now free:
