New Steam Games with Native Linux Clients with Barotrauma and Terraformers – 2023-03-15 Edition

Between 2023-03-08 and 2023-03-15 there were 36 New Steam games released with Native Linux clients. For reference, during the same time, there were 268 games released for Windows on Steam, so the Linux versions represent about 13.4 % of total released titles.

This week there’s a special one in the lot with Barotrauma from Daedalic Entertainment – it stands out by mixing a lot of elements from Faster Than Light, Rimworld and Dwarf Fortress to generate stories that change every time you play. It already has a huge following on Steam and will probably gain in popularity from there on. It’s claimed to be especially great when doing co-op.

Here’s a quick pick of the most interesting titles from this week (including Barotrauma):
