Here is our ever growing list of games so broken on Linux thy can only be considered unplayable. Not worth a review or simply unable to review. Avoid at all costs, you have been warned.

(If you are a developer of these games and want your game off my shit list its easy, fix it and let me know you have! I’ll test it and remove it if applicable. . . Easy see!)


Title: The Culling
Genre: Action, Indie, Early Access
Developer: Xaviant
Publisher: Xaviant Games
Release Date: 4 Mar, 2016

The Culling could be fun if the developers bothered to include controls on Linux, the game loads fine but that’s as far as you can go. Don’t worry though, reports say its now a dead game anyway.


Title: Rust
Genre: Action, Adventure, Indie, Massively Multiplayer, RPG, Early Access
Developer: Facepunch Studios
Publisher: Facepunch Studios
Release Date: 11 Dec, 2013

Rust has never had the best performance on Windows, the Linux version is just outright broken. The developers are aware of this and still continue to sell it, a shameful example of money grabbing scum. Avoid at all costs unless you like your games to run at sub 20FPS.


Title: The Spatials
Genre: Indie, RPG, Simulation
Developer: Weird and Wry
Publisher: Weird and Wry
Release Date: 30 Mar, 2015

The Spatials looks great, but I and others have found the game crashes on load almost instantly. The developer is aware and has numerous fixes, unfortunatly non worked for me. Beware and remember you can always get a Steam refund.
