Now that Christmas is just a week away, holiday sales have started to pop up for multiple platforms.
And, this is probably the best time to grab some amazing deals and offers for games available on Linux.
In this article, I will be mentioning some free games that you can play and claim to keep forever along with some good deals for Linux games.
Free Linux Games to Play This Holiday
Here, I will compile a list of free-to-play games and some paid games that you can claim for free (limited-time).
Prison Architect Giveaway on GOG.com (Offer Expired)
Prison Architect is a Real-time game that encourages you to take up some managerial skills.
You need to build a maximum security prison and manage it. Prisoners will be constantly arriving and you need to make sure that they have a cell ready for accommodation with proper facilities.
Of course, things will start to get messy if you fail to have enough rooms or weak security.
Vecter (Free to Play on Steam)
Vecter is an interesting fast-paced runner and shooter available for Linux on Steam. It is completely a free-to-play game that launched a month ago but it is getting a lot of good attention and reviews.
This is definitely something fun to try this holiday season!
