R.I.P. Happy Penquin - The Linux Game Tome

For over fifteen years the folks at HappyPenguin.org maintained the Linux Game Tome,  a database of Linux game projects. Many a geek were sad to see this classic site recently fade away into the Internet graveyard. But all is not lost, thankfully a dump of the site's data was provided to the community.

Along with some sweet game gems, this data contains lots of stale project information and entries for commerial packages. Here for reference is a cleaned up extract of the game data in  CSV format
