Linux might not be famous for its games, however there are still plenty around. You will not find the latest Call of Duty, though. Rather, there is a long list of classics and small and fun games. From the Scumm based offerings from Revolution, to remakes of classics like Freeciv, LinCity, and Ultimates Stunts.

Fedora offers a dedicated "spin" installation for games, which offers more than hundred small and big games. Below is a random pick of a few favourites, along with their RPM package names.

As far as I understand, many of them are OpenGL based, or require a properly configured graphics card to run.

  • Beneath a Steel Sky - beneath-a-steel-sky-cd
  • Lure of the Temptress - lure
  • Flight of the Amazon Queen - flight-of-the-amazon-queen-cd
  • Freeciv - freeciv
  • Glaxium - glaxium
  • Mania Drive - maniadrive
  • Ultimates Stunts - ultimatestunts
  • Tremulous - tremulous
  • Abuse - abuse
  • LinCity - lincity-ng

And to install them all!
