  • The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep to launch on Linux "late summer", no Bard’s Tale Trilogy due to Steam Play

    We have both good and bad news to share this morning, as inXile entertainment have given an update on both The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep and The Bard's Tale Trilogy.

    In their most recent Kickstarter update, inXile have said that progress on the massive Director’s Cut update for Barrows Deep is going really well. They said Microsoft has been a "truly amazing partner" giving them extra resources allowing them to take their time. As for the release, they're now saying it will be in "late summer" which will include the long-delayed Linux version. Hopefully those who backed it will enjoy it but it must be annoying waiting almost a year since the release for official Linux support.

  • CreatorCrate, a unique roguelike 2D platformer made on Linux is looking for funding

    Jori Ryan of CreatorCrateGames emailed about their roguelike 2D platformer CreatorCrate. It's being developed on Linux (primarily on Manjaro) and so they're aiming for same-day Linux support with it.

    They just recently put up a Kickstarter campaign, with a pretty low goal of only $5K. They say the funds are to allow them to spend time ensuring it reaches the full potential possible. They've already worked on the game for four years (two of which have been full-time) and most of the core gameplay systems are in place.

  • Confessing my continued love of the Steam Controller, a few years after release

    After picking up my own Steam Controller at midnight from GAME on the day of release back in November of 2015, it has become practically the only gamepad I use. To the point that anything else just feels—wrong. To be clear I own a Logitech F310, a DualShock 4, an Xbox One Controller, I've also extensively used an Xbox 360 pad and so many more.

  • Sweet 2D adventure and crafting game 'Forager' just got a nice free update

    Oh no, this is going to be bad for my free time. Forager just got the first major update since release and it sounds great.

  • The slick atmospheric racing platformer 'Distance' just had another free update with new levels

    Distance, one of the best racing platformers (seriously, I love it) just had another update with Refract giving it more free content.

    The "Electric Update" was released yesterday which gives you six new levels to try out, a new Main Menu level "Ambient", new music, some remastered music for Nexus (Resonance, Deterrance, and Terminus), new options for SpeedRunners like a timer, improvements to the built-in level editor including 17 new textures and bug fixes.
