Open gaming roundup for February 27 - March 4, 2016

1900+ games available for Linux on Steam

The total number of Linux games available on the Steam platform crossed 1900 recently. Not only is this a great news for the open source community as a whole, but also for Linux game developers specifically. As the ecosystem around Linux games grows, development will have better incentives, and that in turn will bring us more games.

Take a look at the 1900+ games on Steam.

Extension of Europa Universalis IV announced

Paradox Development Studio's best-selling historical grand strategy game Europa Universalis IV will have a new extension: Mare Nostrum. For those of you wondering about the name of the game, mare nostrum was the old Roman term for the Mediterranean, meaning our sea. Mare Nostrum, therefore, takes its name from the major changes made to the naval game in Europa Universalis. Read more in the announcement on Linux Game News.
