I thought I’d be nice to make a little list of some of the GNU/Linux games I’ve tried out this past year. I’ve tried to keep the list heterogeneous (different game genres, all from different producers, some freshly released and some quite older…).
I’ve also decided to only include commercial games in this post; if it gets positive feedback I may also post a list of my favourite free games.
Anyway, here it goes:
A massively multiplayer online first-person space-combat game featuring possibilities in trading, mining, combat, warfare, piracy…
Price: $9.99 / month (free 8 hour trial)
A third-person action game featuring a rabbit on a fight to save his fellow rabbits from slavery in a fight against corrupt rabbits and wolves.
|And Yet It Moves
A platform game in a world of paper collage you can rotate at will, turning walls into floors, slides into platforms and moving stacks of rocks (or even enemies).

A fantasy first-person shooter, action role-playing game (in player role) and real-time strategy (in commander role) multiplayer game.
