happypenguin.org provides a fairly large database of linux games, with some
news going on, too. Freshmeat probably has most linux games in its database.
Also linuxgames.com has news on some of the more high profile and notable
projects. If you talk to the administrators of these sites (well, linuxgames
and mebbe happypenguin), they will probably exchange links, since spreading the
popularity of linux is something most of us want. One of the nice things about
linux is the stuff is available and there's no one shoving it in your face. The
efforts of advertisers usually just annoy me and create a negative association
with the product. There are a few sites that concentrate information so you can
find what you want, but you're not being blasted with the products marketting
