  • Sunless Skies: Sovereign Edition launches May 19 with a number of enhancements | GamingOnLinux

    Sunless Skies is simply awesome. A gothic-horror exploration RPG with flying-train combat. What more can you possibly ask for? How about a new upgraded version with Sunless Skies: Sovereign Edition.

    Now confirmed to be launching May 19 with Linux support, Failbetter Games worked to make this the best version possible. While a lot of it was towards the console releases, there's plenty of PC enhancements too. Naturally this also means much better gamepad support, which no doubt many will appreciate. I certainly will, as it seems like such a great fit to play on one.

  • Dark Envoy is a non-linear sci-fantasy RPG coming in 2022 and it's looking good | GamingOnLinux

    Founded in 2016, Event Horizon set off on a mission to develop memorable RPGs. They've since grown to 20 people after Tower of Time from 2018. Looks like Dark Envoy has much higher production values with motion-captured animation, scenic locations and all available in 4K. The good news is they still plan full Linux support too.

  • Google finally adds a search bar to Stadia, some big UI changes coming that look good | GamingOnLinux

    It's hard to believe that Google, leader of the search engines took this long to implement search into Stadia but it's finally here. The Stadia team also announced some good other changes coming.

    Not exactly a revolutionary feature a search bar, but a ridiculous thing for a store not to have. Do note though, the search bar is currently only for the Web - so mobile clients don't have it (yet?). It's funny really, such a simple feature has probably been the number 1 most requested feature by Stadia users. It's rolling out to everyone across the week, so if you don't have it yet - be patient.

  • Awesome looking voxel puzzler Bonfire Peaks releases later this year in Q3

    "Move onwards, move upwards, and leave nothing behind: in Bonfire Peaks, players must climb to the top of a mysterious island ruin, burning everything they own along the way.

  • DRM Driver Posted For AI Processing Unit - Initially Focused On Mediatek SoCs - Phoronix

    BayLibre developer Alexandre Bailon has posted a "request for comments" of a new open-source Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) driver for AI Processing Unit (APU) functionality. Initially the driver is catering to Mediatek SoCs with an AI co-processor but this DRM "APU" driver could be adapted to other hardware too. Alexandre Bailon sums up this DRM AI Processing Unit driver as "a DRM driver that implements communication between the CPU and an APU. This uses VirtIO buffer to exchange messages. For the data, we allocate a GEM object and map it using IOMMU to make it available to the APU. The driver is relatively generic, and should work with any SoC implementing hardware accelerator for AI if they use support remoteproc and VirtIO."
