Greenlit Games[edit | edit source]

Steam Greenlight is an alternative method for developers to get games and other software published on Steam. This works on the basis that the Steam community votes on those games that they would most like to see on Steam and at irregular intervals, the most popular get greenlit and are able to publish their games. There are currently over 400 games that have been greenlit and a fair proportion of these (between and third and a quarter) have been released, whether as full releases or through Early Access.

Greenlight has been a boon for penguin-flavoured gamers, as the proportion of developers who state that they plan to support Linux far exceeds the proportion on Steam generally. This may be because Greenlight is more attractive to 'Indie' developers who have a harder times getting software published on Steam and / or because developers will state Linux support to increase the amount of votes they can get. Whatever the reason, at time of writing, approximately 10% of the games released for Linux on Steam have been through the Greenlight program.

Given the sheer amount of games in Greenlight (at time of writing, over 1400) and the number that get added on a weekly basis, it would be unrealistic to attempt to cover all of those titles. What follows is a list of those games that have been greenlit (i.e. accepted for eventual publication on Steam) and the status of possible ports for each. This list will be updated as each new batch of titles is greenlit, so inbetween times, some of the information may be out of date.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Titles will be classified as:

Released - if released on Steam Linux fully, open beta or on Steam Early Access

Definite - if support is clearly stated on Greenlight page (in the platforms section or in the main blurb) or a clear statement of intent to port in relation to Linux has been made recently (i.e. less than 12 months) or if support is stated on a linked crowdfunding site

Possible / Probable - if there is already a Linux port, but no stated intention to move it to Steam Linux or if a clear statement of interest in porting has been made recently (i.e. less than 12 months) or if a statement of intent to port has been made recently, but some surmountable barriers remain.

Uncertain / Unlikely - if there's no clear indication of intent or interest in porting or barriers to porting would seem difficult to overcome or stated interest is old (i.e. over 12 months) or if devs have stated that they will not port to Linux or move an existing port to Steam.

The information here is not likely to be complete (particularly in relation to those games where no information is given).
