Free Steam Linux Games?
Are there any other games than Team Fortress 2 you can try for free with Linux? I have only found one other free game so far, World Of Goo Demo, you can play it with the Linux version of Steam but it is only a demo.

Anyone know of any other games for Linux that are free to play and try?

Nope, those are the only two on steam at the moment. After getting the beta invite Serious Same 3 appeared in my library for free though.

You could of course show "support" and buy a Linux one, especially with the autumn sale.

If you will have problem with full screen mode in Unity of Command Demo try set launch option "sdl-fullscreen" without quotes

That worked great, thanks.

With Ubuntu 12.04 and Unity that menu bar on the left takes up a big part of the screen and Unity of Command then does not display everything correctly. But if you use that launch option sdl-fullscreen everything works as it should and you can see everything again.

Oh and that game, "Amnesia: The dark descent" did not work for me, it got stuck in some kind of launcher window.
