The Humble Indie Bundle

http://www.wolfire.com/humble

For those of you having a hard time finding linux game publishers, here is you chance. These guys are offering 6 games for what ever price you want to pay. The only way to keep encouraging multi platform programmers is by demonstrating there is interest here. Please donate...although the amount is up to you, I am proud of the fact that the average Linux donations have been nearly double the Windows ones....

I think it's more a cost / profit thing. Paying more to port a game to linux would lower their profit margins.

The rest have probably either never heard of it (hence my vote) or couldn't care less about people who use an OS with such a low market share.

Well, I looked at it, but the only one that piqued my interest (World of Goo) I already own.
sorry, I grew out of games a long time ago.
