About GamingOnLinux
Thank you for stopping by! We are, what we commonly refer to a "GOL"! It's a completely independent gaming website, dedicated to Linux gaming. We find the news and chase down developers, so you don't have to! We write new articles almost every day for you to keep up with everything around Linux/SteamOS gaming.

In the past, you might have picked up a monthly gaming magazine, by pledging to us you could consider it like that, except you're also getting everything else we do as well. We also track tons of crowdfunded games, so you don't have to search around.

Articles not your thing? We are also on Twitch and YouTube!

Want to know how much we've done on the site, or what anyone else has done on it? You can hit this link. You will see there the amount of effort we put into it every month!

The code that runs GOL is open source under the MIT license (gitlab). We chose that license so that anyone can tinker with it re-use it and generally do whatever they like without any licensing hassles. It's really only meant for GOL though, but hey if an issue bugs you, why not help out ;)

We also run Game Servers. So you can join other Linux gamers in some fun online games!

On top of that, we also run the Linuxers Reddit, a subreddit designed to be a friendly and inviting place for old and new Linux users alike.

Liam from GamingOnLinux has written about Linux news for many years, he was the original gaming writer for the old Linux Voice magazine. You can see a horrible picture in many of their early issues.

You can pledge any amount you want from $1 to $ whatever. It's your choice, you don't even need to pick a reward.

Payments are taken once a month between 1st-3rd of each month.
Example: You pledge on the 5th of March, your payment is taken around the 1st of April.
This means you won't get a GOL Premium badge on the website until your payment clears!

How to get supporter status to show up on the website

When you've paid each month, simply go to this page and login with Patreon. It will refresh your account and give you supporter status. Until Patreon finish v2 of their API, it needs to be done manually - sorry!

What to expect from this Patreon
While most of the work goes into writing articles and working on the websites code, we will be throwing out information early to certain Patreon supporters on what we're working on. You will also have a direct say in what we do next. We will be involving you in the process of our work, as much as possible. We will also give you sneak peeks at things before they are ready to go on the website.

You can also find the special Supporter Forum here.

None of this is possible without your support! So thank you <3

Other ways to support us
You can also buy games using our affiliate links:
$1,398 of $1,600 per month
If we hit this goal, we can safely upgrade the server again to handle all the additional traffic we've been getting over time and gives us a small room for extra spikes in traffic.
