Deep Silver announced that Metro: Last Light will be ported to Mac OSX and Linux. The Mac port is available at September, 10th on Steam. 4A Games is currently working on the Linux port which will be made available for Steam users later this year.
So in the meantime several games have been gone gold for Linux, e.g. HL2 and its addons like Episode 1 and 2.
The HL1 SDK has been updated so that it is now available for Linux and OSX.
The strategy game Warland: Airgame Battle is also available for Linux users.
Natural Selection 2 is available for Linux users.
Thanks to Arnaud Kubacki. He informed me that Jack Keane is now available on Desura.
Valve is releasing more and more of their games for the Linux platform. Latest available betas are Half-Life 2, HL2:Episode One, HL2:Episode2 and Left 4 Dead 2.
So everyone who likes Gordon Freeman is invited to pick up the crowbar again.
Valve also implemented support for the Oculus Rift in HL2. So you could have an experimental virtual reality experience if you are one of the Oculus Rift beta testers.
Jürgen and Marko are expecting you at our booth in Chemnitz. We show all kind of games, e.g. the latest games available via Steam for Linux.
Great news for linuX gamers around the world. Half-life has been ported to Linux and Steam is offering the beta version in their library.
Just watch out for Half-Life (beta) in your library. Valve offered the game with a HDR pack – so graphics look more modern than 1998.
I got a nice message from the developer of the Just Tactics game.
Just Tactics is multiplayer 1v1 and the community is still small (which is why any more help spreading the word about Just Tactics is appreciated so it can be hard to find a match in the Quickmatch queue. So we have meetup times. If you join at 11:00 AM, 3:00 PM, or 9:00 PM EST you will find an opponent for sure. Additionally, someone from the team is usually in the queue helping people out from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM EST.
He donated me 2 free keys for the game. So the first two who drop me a line at Marko.Kaiser (at) linux-gamers.net will get a code.

spiritual successor to Dungeon Keeper and we recently launched on
Currently we have a trailer featuring Richard Ridings as the narrator,
and we hope top get him on board as part of our stretch goals.
Another nice thing we have is a playable showcase of War for the
Overworld. Where you take control of a Blood Imp in order to explorer
the dungeon. There isn’t any gameplay in it just yet, but it runs on
