  • Delores: A Thimbleweed Park Mini-Adventure now available for Linux

    After a short Beta testing period, it seems Delores: A Thimbleweed Park Mini-Adventure is now out properly for Linux from developer Ron Gilbert and Terrible Toybox. What is it? Delores: A Thimbleweed Park Mini-Adventure started out as a prototype for Ron Gilbert's new point-and-click adventure game engine and grew into a fun little game.

  • Driving with on-screen controls in Frick, Inc. looks hilarious - releasing October 10

    Frick, Inc. has you use on-screen controls to drive funny little trucks across short, challenging little maps and it looks simply wonderful and also as the name suggests - probably frick-ing frustrating. Each truck has a different control layout, so it will continue to mess with you as you progress through it and you'll be doing all this button pressing and lever pulling across 30 varied levels. Once you've really got the controls down, each level also has an additional added challenge you can do.

  • Antimatter is a very ambitious upcoming galaxy-wide exploration city-builder

    Top marks for ambition on this one, as Antimatter from developer Geoffroy Pirard is planned to be a 4x city-builder where you can explore space and colonize many other planets. It doesn't seem to really fit into a few standard genres. Is it a city-builder? Yes. Is it a game of space exploration? Seemingly also yes. The developer explains how each planet can be explored and built up with different biomes, native cities, hidden structures, forgotten civilisations and more surprises to find. Not always peaceful either, some planets as expected are quite dangerous places to be exploring.

  • Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs go open source

    Frictional Games have announced that they've now open source the game engine behind Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs as open source under the GPL. It's worth noting, that like a lot of open source releases this is only the code and not all the other media assets. A great way to do it, as the original developer earns their monies as people need to buy it to run it but it can be kept alive for generations to come, ported to new platforms and more. Frictional are no strangers to open source, as they also put up the HPL1 game engine that powered the Penumbra Series in the same way many years ago.
