I have been working on a program called audiogame-manager to make it easy to play your favorite games in Linux. So long as you can install Wine in your chosen distribution, audiogame-manager will make it simple to both install and play games. You can get audiogame-manager from https://stormgames.wolfe.casa/audiogame-manager.html. Both Linux and Mac versions are available. There is also a small tutorial at https://tube.wolfe.casa/videos/watch/39 … c703138437.
The currently available games include some classics like Jim Kitchen's games and Super Liam as wel as some newer favorites like Crazy Party and Swamp, even the newly released Revenge of the Undead is available. More games are being added pretty often.
Audiogame-manager has three modes that most people will be interested in using. First, there is the installation mode, access it with audiogame-manager -i. If you decide you want to remove a game, use -r to access the uninstaller. To play your installed games, simply launch audiogame-manager with no flags and it will bring up a menu of your currently installed games.
When you first download it, you may want to use the -c option to check your system for required programs. It will let you know if anything is missing, and how critical the problem is. For example, missing the Wine package is a critical error because you won't be able to install or play games without it. Much less severe is a missing unix2dos command. This will only stop certain games from autofilling some files needed for the game to launch. In those cases, ocrdesktop can be used to fill in the information instead.
To help with configuration, a second script called install-audiogame-manager.sh is available. It uses fossil to manage the code and wiki. The project is here:

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy the audiogame-manager.
