  • Mounting And Optimizing A Linux Gamer Computer

    We have had a lot of news about games in the Linux world coming out in recent weeks. We already have an interesting performance for games like Grand Theft Auto V, and the trend is for the compatibility level to improve every day, with Valve's recent announcement of Proton as announced here! This even was the head behind the development of DXVK which brought a new step in the compatibility of Windows games on Linux.

  • Stranded Deep adds a new experimental couch co-op mode to survive together

    To go along with this new feature, they also added a Player Ragdoll for when you're knocked out or dead. You partner can help you up with bandages before you bleed out and bodies can be dragged as well for maximum fun. It's good to see them add more from their roadmap, with plenty more still to come before it leaves Early Access.

    They also added a Raft Passenger Seat, fixed a bunch of bugs and updated Unity to "2017.4.13f1". Also the shark music won't play until you're actually attacked so no more early warnings for you.

  • .Age (dot Age) is a turn-based village builder showing off the harsh reality of the Dark Ages

    .Age (dot Age) seems like it could be a very interesting game. A harsh turn-based village builder that will throw events at you like candy, don't be fooled by the cute and colourful style as this is a menacing game.

    Developed by CKC Games, it's due out sometime next year. When spotted on Twitter, we spoke to the developer who confirmed "I've had a linux build for years" so it's coming to Linux at release.

  • inXile confirm the Linux version of The Bard's Tale IV is being worked on

    For those waiting on the native Linux version of The Bard's Tale IV, fear not, as inXile Entertainment have confirmed they're working on it.

  • AI combat arena 'Gladiabots' has enabled Linux support on Steam

    No longer hidden behind a beta of Steam, AI combat arena Gladiabots from GFX47 is now officially supported on Steam for Linux. Do note, the game is still in Early Access.

    If you love strategy games and feel like you want a little more control over unit AI, this might be the game for you. In Gladiabots you assemble a team of robots, design their AI with a handy drag and drop interface and attempt to beat another AI in battle. There's decent tutorials, a campaign, cross-platform online play that doesn't require you to be online at the same time and it's really quite clever.

  • Dungeon crawler 'The 7th Circle' adds Linux support, looks pretty good

    For those who love their first-person dungeon crawlers, The 7th Circle actually looks pretty good and they recently added Linux support.

    It's not going to win any awards for originality here, but 68k Studios seem to have created a reasonably good retro-inspired dungeon crawler. With traditional turn-based combat, more than 60 spells to wield, a crafting and upgrades system and so on it's pretty full on features.

  • Action-RPG 'Moonlighter' has a juicy free Adventure Update, now live on Linux

    It's time to close up shop and go on another run through the dungeons as Moonlighter has a free update now out. This update originally released last week, with the Linux version only seeing the update today.

Plus, just like Android users, Linux users can be pretty creative and only time will tell if they’ll be able to use Linux on DeX to make almost any Linux distro work. Read more
