Here's a list of games available via Steam for Linux currently: http://store.steampowered.com/search/?os=linux

The link provided just redirects to the front store page for me: http://store.steampowered.com/browse/linux/

I bet the people in charge of Steam for Linux are high-fiving whoever coordinated with the Humble Bundle team.

At least half of the titles in that list appeared in Humble Bundles, and I'm guessing a lot of those games wouldn't have been listed otherwise (Darwinia, AYIM, etc.).

Slim pickings still, but much better than just TF2/SS3:BFE.

Actually, Introversion's games were on Linux before even the first Humble Bundle existed, which made the later Bundle appearance a bit of an outlier in that department.

The real surprise in the list is The Book of Unwritten Tales, which I think is the only non-Valve/non-Croteam title in the catalog that was not available on Linux before today. And in its genre (traditional graphical adventure) it's a very high-profile title.

For what it's worth, Eversion wasn't available on Linux either. (Very fun platformer, albeit quite short.)

There's also Unity of Command, a strategy game that focuses on logistics. Review here: http://kotaku.com/5954358/unity-of-command-the-kotaku-review

Not bad at all for a beta start. There's a fair amount of good games inside there. I am not in the closed beta yet, so I have no way to say if this work but I certainly hope to try this soon when they open the beta. I wonder if they are still expecting a 2012 launch or whether the actual launch timing is going to be pushed back to 2013. The later is more likely.

I just discovered that Crusader Kings II (for Linux) is in closed beta as well.

Awesome! So that list is not complete? Any more games missing from that list?

This reddit link seems to have a nice list of games:


You'll notice that Crusader Kings II gives a "no files" error when you try to launch it from the library (you have to own the game already). When I posted this as a bug I was told that CK2 was in an invite-only closed beta. I guess that means I have to get an invitation from Paradox.

I'm assuming the rest of the games with a "no files" error are still being tested or prepped for release.

Could you provide the list here? The link returns 'no results' for me.

[edit] the list magically appeared right after posting this.

That's awesome. Of course many of these were available before. But having a good selection together in Linux under the Steam brand is a huge deal. If you're bored, chances are you can pick up something there in a couple of minutes. Chances are, you already have an account.

Here is a list of Steam games that already have a Linux client: http://steamlinux.flibitijibibo.com/

It seems only a few of those have (yet) been added to Steam. Notable missing are all the id Software (Doom, Quake) games.

And.... I recognize 2 titles :P

It's mostly indie stuff that already has linux clients. Neat that they're included though.

It's not so bad... I recognize 9! :)

So, just Team Fortress 2 then.
