  • Become an officer in a ministry of a totalitarian state, Beholder 2 is out now

    What will you do with the power to control? Beholder 2 seems it will ask that question and it's out now with Linux support.

  • Lost in Sky: Violent Seed, an intense story-based action platformer will have Linux support

    While the release is a little while away, we have it confirmed that the story-based action platformer Lost in Sky: Violent Seed will have Linux support. We spoke to the developer earlier today, who confirmed Linux support to us.

    It will mix-in comic book styled storytelling, with intense action platformer segments and I have to say it does look pretty good.

  • Garden Variety Body Horror, a 90's styled survival-horror has Linux support

    Here's one we missed that released. Garden Variety Body Horror, a 90's styled survival-horror that acts as a sequel to Prototype Mansion released with Linux support.

    When they say 90's, they're not kidding. It looks like a game that would have fit in well on something like the original PlayStation.

  • The challenging action-platformer 'Damsel' is now available on Linux

    Damsel from Screwtape Studios is a mighty fine looking action-platformer set in a dark cartoon-like world and it's now on Linux. It was only recently we noted that it looked like it was coming, didn't take long after that!

    Released yesterday, the developers noted that Linux (and Mac) support arrived with a few other tweaks to the game to make it a little more accessible. Apart from a few gameplay tweaks, they also added support for using the OpenDyslexic font if you have trouble reading the in-game text which is a nice feature.

An Initial Look At The Intel Iris Gallium3D Driver Performance

One of the most exciting developments in the open-source Intel driver space this year was the Iris Gallium3D driver taking shape as what's destined to eventually succeed their "classic" i965 Mesa driver. With Iris Gallium3D maturing, here's a look at how the performance currently stacks up to their mature OpenGL driver. The Intel Iris Gallium3D driver is designed for Skylake (potentially Broadwell too) support and newer generations while being a forward-looking driver and utilizes their mature NIR compiler support. Iris holds much more performance potential than their classic Mesa driver albeit the developers haven't really taken to performance optimizations yet but rather getting the driver up and running, eliminating test suite failures, and getting to the point of feature parity with the i965 driver.
