The deliverables:

This database is updated twice a month, usually the 1st and 16th of the month.

Our deliverables:

  • In Tellico format : It’s “The Linux Games Book” in Tellico format. To use it, install Tellico (2.3.5 or above).
    Last update: 05/15/2019.
  • RSS file : an RSS address database of a growing number of games. To use it, install an RSS Reader (i recommend you QuiteRSS). Then open it, and find in its menu the option “Import Feeds”.
    – QuiteRSS is the least beautiful but the most complete and the fastest (very powerful)
    – FeedReader is the most beautiful, but at version 2.7.1 there is no export function.
    Last update: 05/15/2019 (This is the 2nd release).

    • Screenshots of games: Screenshots
      (If you want to fork this site for example, we provide below all the Screenshots of this site).
      Last update: 19/01/2019

Licenses of those screenshots:

  • For mines (screenshots with a border of window, when i have made a test of the game) : Do with it whatever you want”.
  • For others (Mod DB / Indie DB, Steam, Debian, authors of games) : keep on mind you make promotion of games. Even if some of this screenshots wouldn’t be free, i can’t imagine they complain about using their screenshots (99% of them had been created by authors of games themselves).

Some games or tools difficult to find elsewhere:

(Nothing to see with The Linux Games Book, it’s just for some safeguarding of the software heritage)
