The year was 2014 and I was searching for games available on Linux. Some websites (like lgdb.org) were focusing on open source games, some focused on bringing you the latest news about linux gaming (like gamingonlinux.com, linuxgameconsortium.com, etc) and I felt that there wasn't a single - one portal that would just UNITE all games that you can play on Linux (non-opensource, opensource, wine, dosbox).
That's how the idea behind tuxdb started. A hobby project that I've been working on in my free time a simple idea that was evolving over time. From adding a game manually to this
linux game deals finding, steam data driven, linux streaming gathering, crowdfunding project finding, winehq entries gathering (and so on) amalgamation of everything linux gaming related.
tuxDB is an linux gaming focused website
So ..WHAT is tuxDB, again?
Hard to say.. let's call it a LINUX GAMING AGGREGATE since it's aggregating everything that is related to the linux gamer!
SteamMaGOG, Twitch, Youtube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Lutris for making their data publicly available and making this all happen.
BIG THANK YOU TO:
Sudoshred, Hexdsl, Kerias, Yarre, Tumocs, DyrverE for their feedback, ideas, time and willpower to endure my babbling over the time so I could finally make the site public.
