10 More Games from the Ubuntu Universe
Previously, I blogged about 10 games that’s available in the Ubuntu Universe that I found interesting. Since then, the Ubuntu MOTU Games team has merged with the Debian games team, and the amount of packaged games have increased.
Here are 10 more games from the Ubuntu Universe, based on comment-recommendations from the previous article:
