There’s a lot of talk about gaming in Linux these days, and that’s exciting, because it’s drawing attention to Linux’s capabilities. While the games being spoken of are mostly proprietary (and pretty awful, from a software-freedom perspective), it’s good to see people getting interested in Linux, even when for only pragmatic reasons.

But beyond the attention-grabbing AAA titles, there are many FOSS games worth checking out.

Admittedly, I am not much of a gamer, and never have been. I’m hoping to draw attention to the possibilities of FOSS gaming, but what will follow is hardly exhaustive. But I have tried to gather the names a few FOSS games on Android I’ve enjoyed burning time with, and a few desktop games I’ve heard of or played with occasionally that are worthy of more attention from the gaming community:

      I’ve just installed this from your recommendation and it’s brilliant. I love the amateur graphics, it just adds to the charm.

      Yep just can’t stop once you start, but find it dad you get an end game while the fruits are still moving. I think I did ok as a first time.
