Audio Gaming in Linux

January 26, 2021 — Billy

One of the first things new Linux users often ask is “What games are available?” There is no shortage of games, both open and closed source, that run in Linux. For a long time though, there was a large gap. There were nearly no games for blind people.

Fortunately, now, that is changing. More and more audio games are supporting the Linux operating system. Here are some of the available games with a short description. Note that because of multiple package managers across multiple distributions, installation instructions are not included. Please refer to your distributions documentation, or the documentation for the game itself to get things up and running.

This article covers games for the graphical user interface, GUI. The command line, or CLI has always had a lot of games that are completely accessible to blind players. They will be covered in a separate article.
