The Steam software has long allowed Windows and Mac OS users to unify their game collections and purchase an extensive library of blockbuster and indie titles from their comfort of their own home. Sadly, gamers in the Linux camp have been left out in the cold. That all changes right now with the release of a Linux-compatible version of the Steam client, an event made doubly exciting by an extensive sale. The moment new users open the Steam store, they’ll be greeted with as much as 75% off some of the best games of this generation.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Superbrothers: Swords and Sorcery EP, FTL: Faster than Light, and Bastion, are just a few of the truly stellar titles that can be nabbed for the price of a burger and fries. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and this sale is no exception. Interested gamers have until February 21st to take advantage of these deals. As a special bonus, Linux users who try the über-popular free-to-play Team Fortress 2 before the end of the month will receive an exclusive in-game item, modelled after Tux, the penguin mascot of the Linux OS.
