LinuxGames is a website that provides news about both free and open-source as well as proprietary video games for the Linux gaming platform. It mostly announces information on new game products and release dates, although it also covers some important events such as QuakeCon and occasionally interviews important figures such as Ryan C. Gordon, Michael Simms, Timothee Besset, and John Carmack.

Registered users are permitted to submit news to the website. LinuxGames also provides hosting for several other Linux oriented game websites, mostly involving free software gaming and emulation projects. It is currently run by Zachary J. Slater, Al Koskelin, Matt Matthews, Dustin Reyes, and Marvin Malkowski Jr.[1]
