I often look around the pygame website. There are a lot of open source
games posted there that run cross-platform in Windows and Linux. There
are even links to commercial games built with pygame.
I like nanoid a lot, personally. The sound effects are especially
entertaining and have me utterly convinced that I too could write an
addictive and entertaining game some day.
