Couple of games that are fun for Linux


Try out www.transmissions-element120.com it is a HL2 mod and it's free and no need to own HL2! Not even sure if you need steam for that. Also a puzzle platformer called Limbo. This was free recently but not sure if it is still.

That link takes me to an all black page.

Do you have another link?

Transmission was all done by one guy over a couple years or so. Introduces some new physics and a new weapon. Also improves the AI and introduces some new behaviors.

As puzzlers go Limbo's good. A lot of people will rage-quit and I saw one report where they rage-quit and uninstalled it.

By the time you're at the end of Limbo you are glad it's over. But still a clever game if you like puzzles. I read that the new weapon and physics from Transmissions will end up in other mods.
