Quietly in the background a group of open-source and Linux enthusiast websites (full disclosure: including FreeGamer ;) ) has developed a new platform for promoting open-source games: http://www.linuxgameawards.org/
One of its regular features will be a monthly award and a related promotion drive for the winner on all affiliated sites.
As a start, our community came up with the first 10 nominees for the January 2014 award and you can now vote for your favorite game of those here.
P.S.: One of the nominated projects, SuperTuxKart, had a new release today also. Don't forget to check it out and vote for them if you like it.
