While other big publishers, such as Blizzard and Ubisoft, ignore Linux as a gaming platform, Electronic Arts pushes its first Linux games into Ubuntu Software Center: Command and Conquer: Tiberium Alliances and Lord of Ultima. Although these games are only a couple of browser games, among Ubuntu users they came to very positive reviews.
Unfortunately, EA does not intend to publish any native games for Linux currently, they are going to release a number of AAA titles with the help of Winefor Linux soon. If successful, such actions could lead EA to expanding its Linux support.
In other news, there are new games with Linux support are being published on Desura almost every day. Here are a few of them:
Avadon: The Black Fortress
Deadly 30 (My personal favorite – a kind of Left 4 Dead in 2D)
Lucky Rabbit reflex
I close this series of pleasant news with another very latest news on the release of a new indie title Dynamite Jack, that was reported by the creators of the Humble Indie Bundle today. It can be purchased here.
