steam for linux celebration sale
Steam for Linux has officially launched, and on Valentine’s Day no less! Valve decided February 14, 2013 would be the perfect day to show its appreciation for Linux users. Not only that, but it has also decided to hold a Steam for Linux Celebration Sale to further show its love.

Hey, wait! Don’t leave Windows and Mac owners! This sale isn’t just for Linux users. It’s a sale for everyone to welcome Linux users into Steam’s loving embrace. Games that are available for Windows, Mac and Linux are all discounted between February 14-21, 2013.

The Steam for Linux Celebration Sale even has its own page on Steam. There are 57 sale games listed on that page, and almost all of them are available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Naturally, I’m going to take a moment now to list some of the best offerings available in the bunch.

  • Amnesia: The Dark Descent (Windows, Mac, Linux) – $5
  • And Yet It Moves (Windows, Mac, Linux) – $2.49
  • Anomaly: Warzone Earth (Windows, Mac, Linux) – $4.99
  • Aquaria (Windows, Linux) – $4.99
  • Bastion (Windows, Mac, Linux) – $3.74
  • Crusader Kings II (Windows, Mac, Linux) – $9.99
  • Defender’s Quest (Windows, Mac, Linux) – $7.49
  • FTL: Faster Than Light (Windows, Mac, Linux) – $4.99
  • Hacker Evolution: Duality (Windows, Mac, Linux) – $4.99
  • Half-Life (Windows, Mac, Linux) – $2.49
  • Magical Diary (Windows, Mac, Linux) – $3.75
  • Postal 2 Complete (Windows, Mac, Linux) – $7.49
  • Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery (Windows, Mac, Linux) – $3.99
  • Team Fortress 2 (Windows, Mac, Linux) – Free
  • Trine 2 (Windows, Mac, Linux) – $3.74
  • World of Goo (Windows, Mac, Linux) – $2.49

Yes, this is definitely a nice Steam sale. Granted, most of the reduced games are fairly well known and there’s a good chance you already own them, but still. It’s a good opportunity for people to come in and build a good Steam for Linux library.
