  • Legend of Keepers: Career of a Dungeon Master now available in Early Access

    Legend of Keepers: Career of a Dungeon Master from Goblinz Studio enters Early Access today, letting you become the evil overlord of a dungeon. This isn't a Dungeon Keeper styled game though, it works like a turn-based strategy with some management elements.

    Quite a mouthful of a name that's for sure. Descriptive though, you know what you're getting into here. Pesky heroes trying to get into your dungeon, to run off with all your treasure. Something about a marketing department convincing them they'll be fine. They won't be though, you're there and you have lots of traps to set and monsters to unleash.


    So far, it's great fun and I'm looking forward to seeing all the extra content they add in. For Early Access, their current plan is to remain there for anything between 6 months to a year giving them time to add in modding support, new heroes, new monsters, new traps and so on.

    Goblinz Studio are certainly a dedicated team, and their constant Linux support is fantastic and deserves some attention. Their founder, Johann, wrote an Imgur post describing a brief bit of history and it sounds like they've done well with this one.

  • Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition has a big update out and new story DLC coming soon

    Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition from Beamdog has been updated again, bringing some pretty huge improvements and a great sounding story pack is coming soon.

    Patch 1.80 (Version 8193.9) landed this week for the upgraded edition of this popular RPG, as Beamdog continue to refine the experience and support it well after release. One of the biggest changes this patch is related to performance, Beamdog said in some cases it's improved by up to "200%" and especially so on slower hardware. Optimizations were done across AI, Shadows, Textures and more. Other gameplay adjustments were also made like improved pathfinding around objects and they also said they fixed "Linux Steam CD key provisioning".

Deprecating support for the Linux kernel

Running on the Hurd was always a goal for Guix, and supporting multiple kernels is a huge maintenance burden. As such it is expected that the upcoming Guix 1.1 release will be the last version featuring the Linux-Libre kernel. Future versions of Guix System will run exclusively on the Hurd, and we expect to remove Linux-Libre entirely by Guix 2.0. The Linux kernel will still be supported when using Guix on "foreign" distributions, but it will be on a best-effort basis. We hope that other distributions will follow suit and adopt the Hurd in order to increase security and freedom for their users. Read more Also: Guix deprecating support for the Linux kernel
