One of the biggest developments in games, The Humble Bundle are making massive
strides to native games and demanding Linux support for software. Let alone users who
are throwing money at it, typically providing a quarter of the total money collected and
showing there is a definite market. Applications for Indie games are thriving on Linux,
the Humble Bundle has not only helped publicize games but also proves there is an
untapped market for such games.
As far as development is concerned, the library support for gaming is provided by different
applications of OpenGL, ALSA, OpenAL and SDL, cross-platform multimedia wrappers
around system-dependent libraries.
The DRI project provides open source video card drivers, software for NVIDIA and ATI/AMD
also release binary kernel modules for their video cards.
Several gaming peripherals also work with Linux, such as gaming mice from Roccat,
which have official Linux drivers, even a free software user-space utility. Several game
development tools also run on Linux, including 3D game engine applications, Unity3D, Unigine and
Spring the real time strategy engine.
