  • Create Games With Godot Game Engine

    Are you considering creating a game in your free spare time or as a full-time game developer? You should check out Godot if you want a FOSS game engine on your Linux machine. There are tons of open source game engines and of course including those proprietary ones that most people use and talk about (for instance, Unity). Godot is fairly new but that doesn't mean it's poor in features. It's the opposite! Read on below to learn more about this awesome game engine.

  • King Arthur's Gold, the 2D multiplayer castle siege game is now free to play

    With some silly physics and plenty of fun to be had, King Arthur's Gold has officially gone free to play and it works great on Linux.

  • Rocket League has a new Rocket Pass out with a Weekly Challenges system

    It seems developer Psyonix is taking more inspiration from Fortnite for Rocket League with their latest Rocket Pass out now.

    For those that aren't too clued up, the Rocket Pass is a newer system in Rocket League that has both a free and paid tier allowing you to unlock new cosmetic items at different levels. Those who don't pay get a reduced amount but if you pay each time a new Rocket Pass comes out, every single level of the Rocket Pass will give you something.

  • Rotation looks like a promising and unique top-down shooter coming to Linux

    I do love a good action-packed top-down shooter but a lot of them do end up feeling a little too similar, Rotation looks like it might mix things up nicely.

  • Silly physics platformer where you swing with your tongue 'Crumble' now has a Linux demo

    In the 3D platformer Crumble, you play as a rolling ball with a smiley face and a loose tongue. It sounds ridiculous and it is but it's also good fun.

    A game I gave a quick shout-out to recently as the idea and trailer made it sound quite amusing, the developer emailed in recently to let me know that the demo is now available on Linux for everyone to give it ago. After now playing it myself, I seriously can't wait to see more from it.

  • Two Point Hospital's Superbug Initiative brings a new challenge system, beta now available

    The Superbug Initiative for Two Point Hospital sees players working together across the world, to complete challenges.

    These challenges can be done with friends or in larger global projects. It works by progressing through nodes of different challenges like training staff or earning a specific amount of money, with the end result once you've fully completed each line of nodes being some special in-game reward. It's a feature they will continue updating, to add in more challenges and rewards to give players more reasons to keep coming back to the game which sounds pretty fun.

  • You can now easily run the Epic Store on Linux with Lutris, Epic suggests applying for a grant

    Thanks to some effort from the team behind Lutris (and Wine of course), you can now run the Epic Store quite easily on Linux.

Intel Tries Again To Auto Enable GuC/HuC Functionality For Their Linux Graphics Driver

Intel previously tried auto-enabling GuC and HuC functionality within their Linux kernel graphics driver but ended up reverting the support since the driver didn't gracefully handle the scenarios of missing/corrupt firmware files. The driver should now be more robust in such situations so they will try again for turning on the automatic behavior, possibly for the upcoming Linux 5.4 cycle. Intel GuC and HuC have been around since Skylake and used for graphics workload scheduling, some power management bits, and for select media capabilities. For newer hardware is also being used as part of HEVC/H.265 handling. Read more

KDE Frameworks 5.61, Applications 19.08 in FreeBSD

Recent releases were KDE Frameworks 5.61 and KDE Applications 19.08. These have both landed in the official FreeBSD ports tree, after Tobias did most of the work and I pushed the big red button. Your FreeBSD machine will need to be following current ports – not the quarterly release branches, since we don’t backport to those. All the modern bits have arrived, maintaining the KDE-FreeBSD team’s commitment to up-to-date software for the FreeBSD desktop. The one thing we’re currently lagging on is Qt 5.13. There’s a FreeBSD problem report tracking that update. Read more
