  • Comedy adventure game "Demetrios: The BIG Cynical Adventure" is now available on GOG

    Another game goes completely DRM-free on GOG, with developer COWCAT putting up Demetrios: The BIG Cynical Adventure along with the Linux version.

  • FOSS racing game "Yorg" has a big new update ready for testing

    Yorg, an in-development FOSS racing game is nearing the release of update 0.11, with a Release Candidate now available for testing.

    In the style of the classics like Micro Machines, while early it's actually quite promising. The update notes for this are quite short and to the point, the developer said they will be going into some more detail when it's out properly for everyone.

  • Point & Click Adventure game "The Hand of Glory" confirmed for Linux

    Madit Entertainment are currently crowdfunding for their new Point & Click adventure game "The Hand of Glory", as it turns out they've confirmed Linux support too.

    Coming across it recently, it didn't actually list Linux support on the campaign itself. After speaking to the developer, they pointed me to this announcement that mentions "Our community has spoken and we listened! We did our tests and we can now confirm that we will be able to support Mac and Linux in the game!", so that's fantastic news. The developer told me they will be updating the campaign to list it too.

  • Possession, a roguelike where you're a ghost that needs to possess others to survive

    Certainly a fun sounding idea! Possession from developer Weirdfellows is a traditional turn-based roguelike, made on Linux and it just recently released. The whole idea reminds me of MidBoss, another excellent body-snatching roguelike.

  • Space Grunts 2 announced, fusing together fast turn-based gameplay with a card battle system

    Developer Orangepixel is working on another new game in addition to the upcoming Gunslugs:Rogue Tactics. Space Grunts 2 will be combining turn-based gameplay with a card-based battle mechanic.

    The original Space Grunts was actually quite a good game. It felt like a turn-based Nuclear Throne and after going back and playing some more today, I couldn't be happier to see another coming.

  • Ubisoft and Epic Games are now supporting Blender development

    Two surprising bits of news recently about Blender, the free and open source 3D creation suite as they've managed to secure some extra funding from two big names.

    Firstly, it was announced on July 15th that Epic Games awarded them $1.2 million from Epic's MegaGrants program. Quite an impressive number and good to see a company such as Epic support open source software in such a way. They don't get it all at once though, it will trickle in over the next three years, to help with Blender's "Professionalizing Blender Development Initiative".
