  • The Indie Hits Sale over on Humble Store went live with some great Linux deals

    Humble are now celebrating Indie games, with a big sale going on some really great Indie games and a lot of good deals for Linux gamers on the lookout for something new.

    We're certainly not short on indie games, something Linux has thankfully done reasonably well with getting ports and official support from developers. Some of my all time favourite games are indie too, the variation you can find even in a single genre is often amazing.

  • Chooseco are getting indie games using 'choose your own adventure' taken down on itch.io

    The creator of indie store itch.io has issued a warning to game developers, as Chooseco appear to be trying to take down anything using the 'choose your own adventure' phrase.

    Not surprising it's happening though, Chooseco went after Netflix for using the same phrase with Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.

  • Dying Light is doing a Chivalry crossover event with new weapons and an outfit

    Things are getting a bit medieval in Dying Light, with a new Chivalry crossover event that's arrived with some new free goodies to grab.

    Running until December 16, this event has some new random encounters available as you travel through either the Slums or Old Town. One of the event quests needs you to take two airdrops from Rais' men, this will reward you with a Agatha Medieval Shield. The other new event quest will require you to save some helpless people from monsters and bandits, help some survivors in their fight against the undead (both parts need doing twice) and that will reward you with a Zweihänder Sword.

    Another update on the Linux-powered little console the Atari VCS, which is now going through Engineering Validation Testing (EVT) as it's on the road to release next year.

    In the last update we posted last month, the Atari VCS was going through pre-production. Something that stuck out, was the actual units looking seriously cheap and shiny.

Run multiple consoles at once with this open source window environment

Last year, I brought you 19 days of new (to you) productivity tools for 2019. This year, I'm taking a different approach: building an environment that will allow you to be more productive in the new year, using tools you may or may not already be using. Who remembers DESQview? It allowed for things in DOS we take for granted now in Windows, Linux, and MacOS—namely the ability to run and have multiple programs running onscreen at once. In my early days running a dial-up BBS, DESQview was a necessity—it enabled me to have the BBS running in the background while doing other things in the foreground. For example, I could be working on new features or setting up new external programs while someone was dialed in without impacting their experience. Later, in my early days in support, I could have my work email (DaVinci email on MHS), the support ticket system, and other DOS programs running all at once. It was amazing! Read more

5 Best Notepad++ Alternatives for Linux

Notepad++ has been the de facto standard for source code editors for nearly 16 years, almost since its creation in 2003. For Windows users, that is. For years, Linux users had no source code editor that compared to Notepad++ with all its bells and whistles, such as code folding, scripting, markup languages, syntax highlighting, auto-completion for programming (limited).
