Legendary - Epic Games Launcher alternative
Open, LowPublic

Description

  • Legendary
  • Github page
  • This is an command line opensource replacement for Epic Games Launcher. Together with Wine or especially Lutris it is very easy to play games with it. It is especially useful because Epic every week gives out some great games for free, so you can quickly accumulate a sizeable collection of good games.
  • GPL-3.0
  • Tarball
  • Note: This is still marked as beta. It is frequently updated and lacks any serious issues, so it is debatable if it can find its way into the repos, or should we wait for a stable release.

Rejected for inclusion as there is no stable release.

Yea and they also engage in some pretty piss poor anti-competitive practices by promoting exclusives, ignoring clear developer terms and practices for platforms, etc. They don't support Linux as a platform, every game would need to run via WINE (even games which have Linux ports that would otherwise work through platforms like Steam, like ARK: Survival Evolved).

JoshStrobl added a project: Needs Maintainer.

Don't agree with their business practices but has stable releases and T9656 needs it, so marking as accepted and requiring a dedicated maintainer, because I won't touch it with a 10ft. pole.
