This database is updated twice a month, usually the 1st and 16th of the month.
- In Tellico format : It’s “The Linux Games Book” in Tellico format. To use it, install Tellico (2.3.5 or above).
Last update: 02/15/2020.
- 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 2.10, it still does not provide a local (on your hard disk) stream export function.
Last update: 02/15/2020 (This is the 16th release).

Last update: 06/04/2017.
- To convert this Tellico database into a SQLite database (thanks to Yves MAINGOY): BottinToSQLite v.1.0 (Python script)
(CC-BY license. Not necessary, allows you to launch all sorts of search queries, and possibly to create a Linux game site with dynamic pages but unfortunately I do not have the time nor the skills for that. Documentation is included)
Last update: 08/17/2019.
- Filters and tags of this data base on Tellico: Filters and Tags
(CC-BY license. Not necessary, perhaps usefull for you if you wan’t to create your own game site)
Last update: 10/28/2019
- Screenshots of games: Screenshots
(If you want to fork this site for example, we provide below all the Screenshots of this site).
Last update: 01/19/2019
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).
