  • The FOSS 2D game engine GDevelop continues advancing the 5.0 release

    GDevelop, a FOSS (Free and open-source software) 2D game engine seems to be really coming along nicely for the current overhaul.

    Tools like GDevelop are incredible for quick prototyping, introducing a younger generation to developing and professional games too. What I love about GDevelop, is that it uses a visual programming events system. It could be compared with Clickteam's Fusion or Scirra's Construct.

  • The Jackbox Party Pack 6 is coming later this year with Linux support

    Ready for more excellent party games? The Jackbox Party Pack 6 is coming later this year and Jackbox Games, Inc. will be continuing to support Linux with this latest pack.

    Following on from the bundle of games included in packs 1 to 5 which all support Linux, this newest version already sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun.

  • Co-op puzzle game We Were Here Together launching on October 10th

    We Were Here Together, the third game in the co-op puzzle series from Total Mayhem Games has been confirmed for release on October 10th.

    The previous games We Were Here and We Were Here Too both support Linux and the gameplay is a lot of fun with the right partner. It's a game that requires co-op, as there's no single-player here. You start together, you end up alone and you have to communicate using in-game walkie-talkies to solve puzzles and keep moving.

  • FOSS fantasy turn-based strategy game Battle for Wesnoth has a new Beta, still porting to Godot Engine

    The team behind the popular free and open source fantasy turn-based strategy game Battle for Wesnoth have announced the start of a big new release.

    Wesnoth 1.15.1 is the first in what will be a long series of Beta releases which includes a brand new campaign called Wings of Victory, an "Intermediate level Drake campaign with 11 scenarios". The Dunefolk faction got a big re-work as well to improve balance against the six Default factions, lots of translation updates, AI improvements, IPv6 improvements for multiplayer, the Font Scaling preference is back and much more included.

  • Nanotale - Typing Chronicles confirmed for Linux at the full release

    Remember Epistory - Typing Chronicles The typing adventure game from Fishing Cactus? Well, they're working on another called Nanotale - Typing Chronicles.

    It's certainly an intriguing concept and it did work really well in Epistory, so I'm pretty keen to see more.

  • CodeWeavers still looking for more developers to work on Steam Play/Proton

    CodeWeavers, the company that helps to support development of Wine and partnered with Valve to help with Steam Play/Proton are still looking to bring in some more developers.

    I spoke to James Ramey, the CodeWeavers President last night who confirmed that there has actually been a good amount of interest as the position has been open for a while. They need more though, especially if Wine and Proton development is going to keep pushing forwards.
