This is a slightly late post! It was supposed to be out on Wednesday 11th of October, but you know, things happen and it’s a few days late. Between 2023-10-04 and 2023-10-11 there were 42 New Steam games released with Native Linux clients. For reference, during the same time, there were 388 games released for Windows on Steam, so the Linux versions represent about 10.8 % of total released titles. One of the good surprises in this week is DotAge, which is quite similar to Rim World in the sense that you build a community (with roguelite elements) that faces existential threats.
Here’s a quick list of the most interesting games released in the past week:
