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
