Let's Talk Linux: Native Games.

Here's the thing, while trying a distro called "LXLE" I was scrolling through the "Games" section it had and stumbled upon "Solar Wolf" god damn what a great game it is. I spent hours and hours of fun with that game. What I want to know from you guys / gals is have you ever found a little sort of "hidden gem" like the one I mentioned before? I also know about this one called Frogatto, but it doesn't run well under crunchbang it's a bit laggy. Share your favorite (and some lesser known) linux games with us!

If you leave Frogatto on his own for long enough, he rips his eye out.

^Just found out that he doesn't in the version in Jessie.

Basically if the coins are silver, he won't. If they are gold, he will.

Re: Let's Talk Linux: Native Games.

Truly great games: Nethack, Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup and Dwarf Fortress (which is the bestest game ever).
Nice diversions: Battle for Wesnoth, OpenTyrian, Defcon, Kobo Deluxe.


LEGO won't be ready for the average user until it comes pre-assembled, in a single  unified look, and glued together so it doesn't come apart.

Re: Let's Talk Linux: Native Games.

Hedgewars is a fun play and a very polished game if you have the bandwidth to spare smile Also do not forget about SuperTuxKart! If you haven't played it recently, version 0.8 has a lot of new fun stuff including a story mode.

Re: Let's Talk Linux: Native Games.

Linux has some great native linux titles!  I played urban terror, wolfenstein:ET, Xonotic, Open Arena, Warsow.  The one Game I could never get working which I wanted to SO BAD was True Combat Elite and True Combat Elite Close Quarters natively on Linux.  If anyone  knows of how to get that running on #! Waldorf....Please Post a tutorial!

Re: Let's Talk Linux: Native Games.

Thanks a lot for the Solarwolf recommendation.  I was just thinking, "Man, I sure could go for not getting anything done today!  I should find an addictive game about flying a spaceship over boxes."  This one fit the bill perfectly. wink

@nebulaehair: Thanks for the link. Tumiki Fighters also looks quite interesting.
