Merry Christmas Linux Gamers

And this is not just words! We have one more reason to celebrate since just yesterday two more ports were made available when we did not expect them. Well, let me rephrase that. One was notoriously late and prior announcements had been far from reliable. I’m talking about Divinity: Original Sin. This well rated RPG had been delayed so many times it was not funny anymore. So when they mentioned in December they were struggling with some aspects of the port, I, and many others, thought that they would simply pass on a December release, just like Rocket League did. But no, Larian Studios has finally delivered and the port is out for Linux ! Note that this is the Enhanced edition so it brings all the newer features to the Linux port as well.

Another good news, is the release of Never Alone, a cute game made in Unity3D, already released on about every other platform out there and finally making it to Linux. If you are familiar with Limbo, it’s kind of similar (2D side view, a mix of action and puzzle-solving), and based on what I have played so far it’s quite fun and co-op works very well too. It features ongoing documentaries about the Eskimo culture, which is a nice addition to understand the background of the characters.


So, let’s recap. In this December, we have just got the following ports:

  • GRID Autosport
  • Saints Row IV
  • Saints Row Gat out of Hell
  • Never Alone
  • Divinity: Original Sin

And I am officially out of Free time to play everything. Bring it on !
