Up until a few days ago I had no idea that the PC and Linux games industry was still going strong – I thought that the XBox & PlayStations had taken over the world.
Since then I have been reading about Steam, more specifically Steam for Linux.
What is Steam?
Steam is an On-line entertainment platform which allows players to buy & download games for PC, Mac and Linux. Your Steam account will track your purchases and in the event of a system failure, you can re-install your purchased games. More than this, it is a community for Chat, Gaming and Sharing.
To see what games are available right now, check out this link.
How do you install it?
The Mac & PC clients can be installed on their native Operating Systems, but Linux takes a little more effort. The supported following platforms are listed here.
Here is the Linux Steam Forum too..
