The Best Linux Games of 2013.

2013 was a huge year for Linux gaming with Valve’s continued commitment to the platform, encouraging words from big studios like Battlefield developers DICE, and Creative Assembly’s commitment to bringing Total War: Rome II to Linux next year.

Our list contains both indie titles and some of the most influential AAA titles to date. This list isn’t intended to be comprehensive nor anything other than our opinion.

All of the titles are available on Steam and/or the Ubuntu Software Center, so get your wallets and purses and prepare to throw some money at your screen!

Garry’s Mod

Prop or not?

Prop or not?

Garry’s Mod is a sandbox game with little to no objective in itself, but the magic is in all the props you can load up from a number of Source engine games and the growing number of mods created by the community.

One such mod is PropHunt – a hide-and-seek game where one team hides as various objects on a map and the other attempts to find the filing cabinet precariously perched on a secluded staircase.

It’s simple fun, yet the vast array of game mods – be it for prop hunting, spaceship building, or machinima recording – makes Garry’s Mod a fantastic addition to an avid Linux gamer’s collection.

Get Garry’s Mod on Steam

Half-Life 2

Theoretical physics has never been so cool.

Theoretical physics has never been so cool.

And speaking of the Source engine, Half-Life 2 might be the oldest game in the list, but is by far one of the most beloved both in Valve’s oeuvre and amongst all the games to come to Linux this year.

Half-Life 2 continues protagonist and theoretical physicist Gordon Freeman’s story from the first title in the series as he makes his way across a world ravaged by man and alien alike. Everything from physics puzzles to frighteningly agile headcrabs stand in your way, but the journey is still one of the most enthralling experiences in any game today.

The next title in the Half-Life series has a lot to live up to, but judging by the reception of one of the oldest titles to get a Linux port, Linux gamers are ready with crowbar and Gravity Gun in hand.

Get Half-Life 2 on Steam

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

amnesia-machine-for-pigs

When we reviewed Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs in September, we found the title’s atmosphere as nerve-wracking as the first and worth trudging through the easy puzzles to explore the Victorian surroundings and steampunk-like machinery.

One of the biggest wins was day one Linux support for a title in such a popular series. But the developers at Frictional Games have always been friends to Linux gamers, porting titles from their Penumbra series in 2007 and 2008 soon after launch.

Get Amnesia: AMfP on Steam

Metro: Last Light

metro-lastlight

Metro: Last Light is one the first AAA titles to come to Linux and relatively quickly to boot. Set in 2034 under the nuclear-devastated city of Moscow, Metro: Last Light twists the tropes of post-apocalyptic narratives into an intense first-person shooter experience.

Everything from ghosts to mutant arachnids and giant amoebas are prepared to make a normal day in post-apocalyptic Moscow a little less pleasant.

It’s not as tongue-in-cheek as the similarly post-apocalyptic Fallout series, but just as reflective of the brutal, yet sometimes touching, human experience in trying times.

Get Metro: Last Light on Steam

Starbound

starbound

Think of Starbound as Terraria or a 2D Minecraft with a real storyline and set in space. What’s not to love?

Much like Minecraft, you can hunt, mine, and build in the world, but unlike the popular 3D sandbox game, you can also travel to other planets and participate in an actual storyline. Your spacecraft starts off stranded in orbit and your first set of quests involves familiarising yourself with the gameplay mechanics and finding fuel for your ship before you can start exploring the procedurally generated planets. What’s more, the various monsters on each planet are also procedurally generated, so you’ll encounter some truly bizarre creatures along the way.

Starbound is an Early Access Game, so you’ll probably discover some broken mechanics (the bow and arrow are a bit troublesome to say the least) and experience a crash or two along the way. But it’s still a fun and featureful game despite being in beta.

Get Starbound on Steam

0 A.D.

Workers constructing buildings and picking berries.

Workers constructing buildings and picking berries.

0 A.D. has been available on Linux for several years, but we think it deserves a place in the list for all its accomplishments in 2013.

It’s the only free and open source title on the list and recently wrapped up a $33,251 fundraising drive – enough, they say, to hire one of their programmers for a full year. Though the game didn’t reach its more optimistic fundraising goals, that’s still $33,251 raised to support an open source project.

And more than anything, it’s fun. Fans of the Age of Empires style of real-time strategy will enjoy the work that’s gone into 0 A.D. over the years. The attention to detail is evident and though the title still has a ways to go, it only stands to improve with another dedicated programmer on board.

Get 0 A.D. on the Ubuntu Software Center

War in a Box: Paper Tanks

papertanks

Tower defence games are as common as Reversi or Minesweeper, but War in a Box: Paper Tanks adds a dose of charm to the addictive genre.

Its unique paper-craft aesthetic works extremely well, giving the 24 levels a tireless appeal as you play and replay each level. At $3.99 it’s an easy sell for anyone who enjoys casual tower defence games. It’s simple fun, but utterly addicting.

Get War in a Box: Paper Tanks

FEZ

I like fezes. Fezes are cool.

We reviewed FEZ back in September and the perspective-shifting 2D platformer is every bit as fun as a Pillsbury Doughboy-like character with a fez on makes it sound.

Jumping puzzles, mind-bending perspective puzzles, and gaming in-jokes all contribute to a title that stays fresh even when you’ve fallen off the map a dozen times or stood too close to a bomb when it goes off.

Get FEZ on Steam

Europa Universalis IV

europa-universalis-banner

Imagine Civilization with a bit more micromanagement, a big helping of history, and one gigantic difference: it’s on Linux!

Unlike the Civilization games, Europa Universalis titles are historical strategy, though by no means a play-by-play of history books. And instead of battling across thousands of years, EUIV only spans the years 1444–1821. But that doesn’t mean EU is any less fun or engaging as the longer running Civilization series.

EUIV plays out in real-time rather than in turns, so you’ll be pausing often to get a better view of your growing empire or your wealthy nation’s vast trade routes. The EU series can be intimidating to beginners given the scope of “grand strategy” gameplay, but if you ever wanted to play out the colonisation of the Americas or tweak the outcome of the Napoleonic Wars, it’ll be worth the effort.

Get Europa Universalis IV on Steam

Kentucky Route Zero

Kentucy-Route-Zero-1

Kentucky Route Zero is one of my favourite games of all time. It’s the most artistically-orientated title in the list and one that exemplifies the more poetic side of gaming in addition to all the AAA titles that we can to look forward to in 2014 and beyond.

Kentucky Route Zero brings the magical realism genre to point-and-click adventures, mixing the surreal with classic adventure game elements. You start out looking for an unknown address to deliver antiques to, but the narrative takes off in unexpected, often fantastical, directions from there.

It’s a game about discovery rather than achievements or saving a princess who’s inevitably in another castle. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea – nor will it fit everyone’s definition of a “game” – but it is one of the most meaningful and creative titles I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing.

You have the ability to fire the blobs from your cloud at the flashy blob surrounded by a cloud of black blobs at the top of the screen. If a black blob and white blob collide, both are destroyed. The object is to hit the evil flashy blob at the top of the screen to destroy it.

2.- Molecule Man is an isometric 3D arcade adventure game for a variety of 8-bit home computers.
molecule-manMolecule Man is an isometric 3D arcade adventure game released by Mastertronic in 1986 for a variety of 8-bit home computers. A level editor is included which enables the player to design their own mazes.Molecule Man is trapped in a radioactive maze and must reach the escape teleport before the radiation kills him. Although Molecule Man looks at first glance like a simple isometric maze game, it is more sophisticated than 3D Monster Maze and more similar to Spectrum classics like Knightlore. The only way you can escape from the maze is by using the teleporter, but you can only use it only after you have collected all sixteen sections of the level's circuit board. To keep the radiation dose down, you also need to periodically take anti-rad pills.

3.- Pinch ol' Santa 2 is a small Christmas game made by SwordLord.
Pinch ol' Santa 2 logoPinch ol' Santa 2 is a small Christmas game made by SwordLord - the coding crew. It is Christmas Eve and the time is nearing 9 o' clock in the evening. There can only be seconds until Santa starts to deliver his parcels to the chimneys of your town. Pinch Ol' Santa 2 is a good example of an easy Christmas-themed time waster, perfect for a short break during work. You look through your window, out of your room at the roofs of a town somewhere in Switzerland. As you admire the lamps and the scenery in general, you see Santa. And there he is, running across that roof on the left of your window.
Looking at Santa you get an idea: Maybe if you pinch him now, he will lose a parcel or two which you then can take for yourself. You open the window and start to Pinch ol' Santa.

5.- Tower Toppler is a game where you have to help a cute little green animal switch off some kind of “evil” mechanism.
tower toppler2In this game you have to help a cute little green animal switch off some kind of "evil" mechanism. The "power off switch" is hidden somewhere in high towers. On your way to the target you need to avoid a lot of strange robots that guard the tower.
That sounds all like a normal jump and run game. What makes this game different is that you walk arond the tower which is revolving on the screen, so that you only see the 180° that are currently visible. The game is a reimplementation of the old game known as Tower Toppler or Nebulus. It was available for PC, Atari, C64. The author was J.M.Phillips and was published by Hewson software. I have seen the PC version on quite a few abandonware sites. But it is only a DOS version and uses ugly graphics.

6.- Eboard has a relatively simple interface, which comes packaged with a few alternatives graphical themes.
Eboard has a relatively simple interface, which comes packaged with a few alternatives graphical themes. You can use this client to play against the computer, a remote server, or directly with another Eboard user on a remote computer. In the last two cases, you can chat with the other player using the text entry field in the left bottom corner. Eboard also makes it easy to teach chess to somebody. You can replay a whole game and explain its strategy by moving back and forth, move by move, with the VCR-like buttons in the lower part of the window.

7.- Paintown is a 2D fighting game in the same style as Double Dragon and TMNT.
Paintown is a free beat´em´up game similar to final fight or double dragon.
Most of the characters are well known from other beat´em´ups and comics. There is a single player adventure mode and you can also play in versus mode against another player.
Changes in 3.2:
* Python scripting module added
* More options added to the menu
* Added player Wolverine
* Game takes screenshots while playing
* Network mode more reliable
* Players have score

8.- In Windstille the player will be placed in a foreign alien world and has to find its way back into safety.
windstille logoWindstille is going to become an old-school 2D site-scrolling shoot'em up game, similar to Turrican or Metroid (with probally some influence of Another World and Flashback).
The game will use OpenGL for fast blitting, alpha effects, light effects, rotation, scaling and probally pseudo 3D effects like the ones in Yoshis Island.
In Windstille the player will be placed in a foreign alien world and has to find its way back into safety.
Special focus will be on getting the foreign world and the players character itself believable.
Exploration will be more needed than plain shoot action, even so the players-character will be equipped with a multifunctional war-suit, so he will be far from defenseless.

9.- The Rise of Minecraft [Infographic].

10.- MOAGG is a 2D gravity game, combining the idea and fun of several existing games, such as Space Taxi and Gravity Force.
Moagg_2Moagg stands for "Mother of all gravity games". In this game you are pilot of a small space ship and have to navigate it through different caves by using the thrusters and rotating the ship. But besides gravity there are many other difficulties you have to master. The game is strongly influenced by some classical cave flyers from the C64 and Amiga era such as "Space Taxi" or "Gravity Force". But Moagg is supposed to be more than just a clone of these games.
