About GamingOnLinux

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 and Steam Deck / SteamOS 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.

Liam from GamingOnLinux (the owner) has written about Linux news for many years. Liam was the original gaming writer for the old Linux Voice magazine (R.I.P). You can see a horrible picture in many of their early issues.

Here's more of what we do:

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 ;)

You can pledge any amount you want from $1 to $ whatever. It's your choice, you don't even need to pick a reward. We appreciate it no matter what!

Payments are taken once a month around the 1st of each month. We've enabled up-front payments, so you're charged for the first time when you initially subscribe and then again on the 1st of each month. If you up your pledge, it will also be taken instantly!

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.

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 also get the few special extras as noted on the tiers, like a promise of no adverts for you (ever!) if you are at least at the "Supporter" ($4) level.

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:
$1,619.84 of $2,000 per month
This enough for us to run and be totally funded to live and work on it without worries. This covers 100% of our day to day operations!
