  • DevilutionX 1.2 Is Released For The Enjoyment Of Diablo Fans

    DevilutionX is a source port of the classic Diablo game with support for the Diablo: Hellfire extension pack that lets you play Diablo on a vast array of modern hardware, including hardware running GNU/Linux. Fans of this game from the late 1990s can enjoy a long list of game-play related improvements, performance improvements and other improvements in the latest DevilutionX release. The original game, or a shareware version, is required to use DevilutionX. Going with the shareware version will likely result in a huge disappointment.

    Diablo is a role-palying video game that was released by Blizzard Entertainment in January 1997. An expansion pack for it called Diablo: Hellfire was released later that year. Diablo was originally just for Microsoft Windows. PlayStation and macOS versions become available in 1998. There wasn't any GNU/Linux release.

  • Diablo source port reimplementation DevilutionX version 1.2 is out now | GamingOnLinux

    DevilutionX aims to make playing the classic Diablo and Hellfire on modern systems a breeze, with a full public domain coded reimplementation and a big new 1.2 version is out now.

    Once again, a community of coders doing amazing work out in the open keeping a classic game very much alive and well. For us, having proper Linux support is great too since DevilutionX offers a great many enhancements to make running such a classic less of a hassle.

  • Warzone2100 4.0 Is Released With Vulkan Support, Built-In JavaScript Engine And Other Major Improvements

    Version 4.0 is a major upgrade to the Warzone 2100 strategy game originally released by Pumpkin Studios in 1999. The latest version can render graphics using Vulkan, DirectX (for Windows), Metal (for macOS) and OpenGL. The Qt dependencies have been dropped thanks to a new built-in JavaScript engine, there's new soundtracks, higher resolution textures and a lot more.

  • UNBEATABLE presents a very stylish world where music is illegal

    Probably one of the coolest looking and sounding games I've seen in a long time, UNBEATABLE seems like it has everything going for it and it successfully funded on Kickstarter in only a few hours.

    Describing it seems a little difficult. It combines exploration and adventure where you do activities for NPCs to build up a set-list of music tracks, with the other side being a frantic two-button rhythm combat game with a lot of visual variety. It's not particularly surprising it's done so well, it does look amazing. Against the $55,000 initial goal on their Kickstarter they're already on over $62,000 and they have another month of funding ahead.

    [...]

    The developer has confirmed Linux support, mentioning clearly they're focused on "PC / Mac / Linux" (with PC meaning Windows). Additionally, they've created a special side-story named "UNBEATABLE [white label]" that will come to Linux as well but for Windows initially.

  • Quirky comedy point and click adventure Dude, Where Is My Beer? is out for Linux | GamingOnLinux

    Interested in slightly weird and quirky comedy adventures? Dude, Where Is My Beer? is now available for Linux. Jump into the "confusing world of unnecessary craft beers and snobby hipsters".

    The game is obviously poking fun at how massively varied the alcohol industry has become over time, especially when it comes to Ale and Beer with so many new flavours and companies appearing all the time. Not that I am complaining, I do like a good tasty Ale myself.

    "Can you find a normal beer in a world of conspicuously flavoured craft beer, and solve the mystery of the elusive, missing pilsner, using nostalgic interface from the golden age of adventure games? Talk to West Coast IPA and American Black Ale drinking hipsters and solve beer related puzzles at different stages of drunkenness; explore locations like a sports bar, a microbrewery, a dive bar and a rock bar in the city of Oslo, in your quest of finding a pilsner."

  • Go on an adventure through Renaissance art in The Frogs, try out the demo | GamingOnLinux

    Done in a similar amusing way to The Procession to Calvary (different developer), the upcoming point and click adventure The Frogs puts you into Renaissance art based on a play from Aristophanes.

    Planned for release late 2021 from developer Michael Wells, you will "Survive awful puns, break all the fourth walls you run across, and challenge the boundaries of morality as you deal with immortality". Sounds exactly like the kind of adventure I want to go on.

    [...]

    You can follow The Frogs on Steam with a demo available right now.

  • Steam test. New PC. Pay no attention to that man behind the screen.

  • How to Install or Enable Cockpit on AlmaLinux 8 - Linux Shout

    The Cockpit on AlmaLinux is a server management platform that allows administrators to easily manage and control their GUI or CLI Linux server systems remotely using a browser. Among other things, admins can take a look at the systemd journal, check the load or start and stop services. It has a responsive design thus we can also use it conveniently on tablet s and smartphones. We can monitor our remote server performance using just a browser without actually having physical access to it. Furthermore, we can also access the command shell with root access to issue commands and install various packages over the server remotely. Since AlmaLinux 8 is based on RHEL just like CentOS 8, this means by default out of the box, the Cockpit is already installed on your system. Just we need to enable it.
