Oh, and even if you are a linux-hater, no one is really stopping you from entering anyway (except for your conscience… well, no one, really).

UPDATE (Dec 28): New batch will be announced soon. Keep calm.
UPDATE (Dec 29): Haven't decided yet on how exactly to proceed after this one, but there will be more.
UPDATE (Dec 30): Many thanks to massi2323, pelish, frankyboy, nullzero, and Antilucid for adding STEAM to this thread's momentum.
UPDATE (Dec 30): Congratulations to all the winners so far, it's really ironic how people with Hotmail and WindowsLive emails emerge victorious in linux-themed giveaways…

Once again, I thank everybody for participating. Special thanks go to all who contributed!
I will be away until Jan 9, so the first post won't be updated for a while, but I shall return with another giveaway batch! So do not forget about this thread yet.

UPDATE (Apr 10): My apologies to anyone (anyone?) waiting for this thread to come back to life in January. I got caught up into various things up until (and including) this moment, but I am happy to announce that new giveawaves are coming! All giveaways above the line are now long closed, so I will also be closing this discussion. Everyone is wholeheartedly invited into this new thread here.

=D Thank you!

Yep, it has been a marvellous year for linux gaming. Highlights for me include Euro Truck 2 and Metro Last Light. Oh, and the steam release of OOTP 14 just before xmas. My only disappointment was lack of the announcements regarding big titles coming to linux in 2014. It would have been nice to have some more confirmed titles in time for the sale. Next year should be amazing nonetheless.

Well, one major title that kicks off 2014 is Papers, Please!
Although, it did work pretty smooth under wine for me.

I might not be a Linux gamer myself, but I thank.you for being generous with these giveaways.

I really need to get a system I can mess with just to try it out. I had one old system I tried it on, but that was a broken clunker with unrecognized hardware.

I guess one of the easier way to try it out would be something like Wubi - it makes a dual-boot setup creation easy and straightforward.
My main gaming system currently is booted from a usb flashdrive and runs in RAM. This started out as a lazy POC, but turned out to be a long-term lazy solution… :)

Thanks for the giveaways. Nice that Linux gets more love and attention :D

wotgamer (11 months ago*)

OSX has also benefited in a crazy amount of ways, since linux usually means an osx port too :D woo

I managed to snag a copy of Don't Starve while it was 92% off, so why not contribute with some linux gaming love. The CV is set at 30$.

Yay! That's the spirit! Thank you! Adding it to the first post for enhanced visibility.

Nice, wish I was awake when it happened :( I would have picked it up immediately without thought lol. Thanks for putting up your other copy on here :) ( Yes I am aware that I prob wont win it, but its still nice that you are doing what you are with the extra copy. )

Congratulations to the lucky and some /very lucky/ winners of the second wave.
Six GA in this thread are still open. Don't miss out!

pampuch721 (11 months ago)

Thanks for giveaways!
Also, since I am having classes with Linux and so, I wanted to start using it. Well, I'd even uninstall Windows. However, due to small number of games working there, I will still use Windows for now... Just hope that more games will work on Linux.

Hey guys, Linux gamer here. I'm giving away this fine cross-platform (including Linux) game right now for the next five hours :): Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians
