The great list of Linux game porting people and companies

This list features mostly programmers and companies that are porting games to Linux, but also developers responsible for tools related to the Linux gaming. Some of them are freelancers, while some are hired full-time by their studios.

If you are looking for someone to port your game to Linux, here's some contact info you can use. If you know someone who's looking, let him know about the list!

Also, if you are grateful that you are able to play your favorite game on Linux, go on and thank your heroes!

To the every single Linux-friendly developer and company out there: we love you!

Feel free to add other people by a merge request (you can create an issue, too!). If you want to be removed from that list for whatever reasons, let me know using an issue system, Twitter or Reddit. Same if you feel like you should be ADDED to the list!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
