  • 3D puzzle game "Flux Caves" fully released, now has Linux support again

    When trying out Flux Caves myself back in March, I was quite impressed with the demo. It recently released in full and as of today, the Linux version is live everywhere.

    Unlike some puzzle games, the aim of Flux Caves is not to make you sweat or get frustrated. It's supposed to be a more peaceful experience with a slightly open-world for you to run around in. There's no losing, no dying, just you and the puzzles.

  • Ready your pickaxe for "UnderMine", releasing with Linux support on August 20th

    Confirmed to be coming to Linux at the Early Access release on August 20th, UnderMine looks like a fantastic action-adventure roguelike.

  • Tactics V: Obsidian Brigade, a retro-style tactical turn-based RPG coming next month to Linux

    Here's another new game for you to keep an eye on, it's called Tactics V: Obsidian Brigade and it's arriving with Linux support on August 15th.

    In development by From Nothing Game Studios (previously made GravBlocks), it's inspired by the likes of Final Fantasy Tactics and other console tactical RPGs from the 1990s.

  • Time-looping adventure game "Elsinore" is releasing soon with Linux support

    After a successful crowdfunding campaign back in 2015, Elsinore a time-looping adventure game set in the world of Shakespeare's Hamlet is releasing with Linux support on July 22nd.

    This was previously mentioned on GamingOnLinux a few times, in our older crowdfunding roundup articles "The Funding Crowd". Some of you might actually remember it, I certainly didn't but I'm putting that right now by making sure everyone knows, as it does sound very interesting.

  • Fedora announces the first preview release of Fedora CoreOS as an automatically updating Linux OS for containerized workloads

    Three days ago, Fedora announced the first preview release of the open-source project Fedora CoreOS as a secure and reliable host for computer clusters. It is specifically designed for running containerized workloads with automatic updates to the latest OS improvements, bug fixes, and security updates. It is secure, minimal, monolithic and is optimized for working with Kubernetes. The main goal of Fedora CoreOS is to be a reliable container host to run containerized workloads securely and at scale. It integrates Ignition from Container Linux technology and rpm-ostree and SELinux hardening from Project Atomic Host. Fedora CoreOS is expected to be a successor to Container Linux eventually. The Container Linux project will continue to be supported throughout 2019, leaving users with ample time to migrate and provide feedback. Fedora has also assured Container Linux users that continued support will be provided to them without any disruption. Fedora CoreOS will also become the successor to Fedora Atomic Host. The current plan is for Fedora Atomic Host to have at least a 29 version and 6 months of lifecycle.
