Recently I’ve spoken with Krešimir Špes from Cateia Games about their GNU/Linux support.
More then a year ago I’ve posted about the puzzle adventure game “The Legend of Crystal Valley”, a GNU/Linux client was promised but due to major difficulties in porting the old engine to GNU/Linux it’s most likely not going to happen (the MacOS client barely made it) .
But since then Cateia Games developed a new engine which games can be easily ported to GNU/Linux.
The first game to reach our beloved OS is Kaptain Brawe, afterwards the strategy game “Medieval Battlefields” and the puzzle adventure games , “Tales from the Dragon Mountain: The Strix” and “Family Secrets: Ghosthunters” will follow.

Here are some screenshots from those games

And Trailers

So Cateia Games didn’t forget about us, and there are a lot of games to wait for.

    Good deal!

    I hope Cateia shows that there’s a market for casual games on Linux. Not aware of many casual game producers for Linux. The We Group offers a couple of native Linux games. I wish Gruby Games still offered their Linux ports.

    Hey Maxim, perhaps you could do a post on causal games. Our household personally (my Girlfriend, our female room mate, our nieces and nephews) spend the majority of their gaming time on the smaller causal games. It’d be nice to have our hard earned cash going towards Linux friendly devs, and publishers – instead of Games for Windows and WINE.

    I’ve looked the We Group website and didn’t find any GNU/Linux games (or at least they weren’t marked as GNU/Linux native).
    But a quick google search reveals a major website full of free browser based casual games that works on GNU/Linux :
    It will supply you and the girls with months or years of fun (there are so many games there).

    There is also another article about casual games here : (I advice you to play the Ice Breaker game, and girls love Frozen Bubble).

    If that’s not enough there is the Kristanix Games which has many GNU/Linux native games :

    But I might write an article about those games someday.
