This is the second part of my article on my favorite games released for Linux in 2013, this is the list of my personal top 10.

10 Knight of pen and paper +1
9 Shank 2
8 FTL – Faster than Light
7 Defender’s Quest – Valley of the Forgotten
6 Trine 2
5 Legend of Grimrock
4 Dungeons of Dredmor
3 Don’t Starve
2 Let 4 dead 2
1 Crusader Kings II

As you can see from this list I like strategy games and RPGs, but in this list there are also other genres, you will find a description of the games from position 10 to 6 in the first part of this article.

You can find all of these games on Steam, and most of them are available at a discounted price on The Humble Store, I suggest to take a look at both websites as in these days they are doing big sales on these titles with discounts from 25 up to 75% of the listed price.

Monstrerpg2

Disclaimer: If you like fast paced action games, or games with a stunning graphics, move away.
Monster RPG 2 is a free/open source console style role playing game (perhaps most accurately, a JRPG) with a lot of depth and old-school character. It is available for iDevices (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad), Android, PC (Windows, Mac, Linux) and now Raspberry Pi.

Some of its main features are:

  • Nineteen locations to discover and explore
  • Nine adventurers to add to the party, develop and lead.
  • Turn-based combat against over ninety monster types.
  • Eighteen spells for Magic Users and Clerics to cast (not including spells cast by monsters!)
  • Enough swords, guns, potions, helmets, badges, keys, staves and armor to keep any adventurer stocked for life.

The game has been “liberated” in November 2012, when the author raised 1500$ to release the code and distribute freely the game for all the platforms.
