The Ubuntu Gaming Team recognizes the importance of FOSS gaming for the adoption of Ubuntu and exists to give the open source gaming world a boost! Why an Ubuntu Gaming Team? This team was set up to tap into the Ubuntu community to gather FOSS gamers around promoting Ubuntu through FOSS games and FOSS games through Ubuntu.

FOSS Games Only!!!

All in accordance with the Ubuntu Code of Conduct. We are a branch of the Marketing Team.

The Ubuntu Gaming Team does NOT do packaging, development, programming, etc. We are a strictly a marketing and advocacy effort. You may be looking for the Debian Games Team or Freedesktop Games

  • Assist LoCo's involved with FOSS gaming

Why FOSS?

This team is dedicated to the advancement Free Software and the promotion of Ubuntu and FOSS games for that. If you believe that FOSS games have no future, or, as some of our members may agree with, that proprietary software titles running natively on Ubuntu are needed, that is fine, but simply outside the scope of this team. There is not a great need for an organized effort to promote proprietary gaming on Ubuntu as such pressure on software vendors is occuring naturally and Wine development is going strong to pick up the slack.
