  • Get out together in Escape Simulator, a game with 'highly interactive' escape rooms | GamingOnLinux

    Playable in solo or online in co-op, Pine Studio (Faraway: Director's Cut, SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell) have announced their escape room game Escape Simulator is releasing on October 19.

    "Think you have what it takes to escape? Face ingenuous locks in ancient Egypt. Hack the system in an adrift space shuttle. Decipher mysterious notes in the oddball Victorian library of Edgewood Mansion. Play online with pals for double the fun. Or brave the mysteries alone, with nothing but your smarts to aid you."

    The developer has confirmed that it will have full Linux support at release.

  • Grand Cathay gets a big introduction for Total War: WARHAMMER III | GamingOnLinux

    While it may be sad that Total War: WARHAMMER III has been delayed until 2022 so we've got a while to wait, we're at least getting more info on what will be included like the new Grand Cathay nation.

    This is the first time for the franchise to see Grand Cathay realised in full. Originally mentioned in the second edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battles and a few random mentions, Creative Assembly teamed up with Games Workshop to pull together everything to create a full army and empire for Total War: WARHAMMER III including their own characters, units, magic, history, and much more.

  • Kingdom Two Crowns will expand again with Norse Lands coming soon | GamingOnLinux

    Bringing with it a setting inspired by Norse Viking culture, it's a whole new campaign that gives you a new setting to build, defend, explore and conquer. "In Norse Lands, players can look forward to unleashing abilities drawn upon from Norse gods, commanding mighty units, building Viking- inspired armaments, solving challenging puzzles, and facing a new enemy Greed.".

  • City-builder Nebuchadnezzar gets another huge upgrade with fire, crime and diseases | GamingOnLinux

    A game that at release was pretty good but clearly lacking in many areas, Nebuchadnezzar has expanded yet again with more major new game mechanics. If you bounced off it at release, it's really time to give it another look.

    "Nebuchadnezzar is a classic isometric city builder game inviting players to experience the mysterious history and culture of ancient Mesopotamia. In the campaign, players get to rule over influential historical cities filled with magnificent monuments."

  • SkateBIRD does a fancy kickflip onto Steam and itch.io as it's out now | GamingOnLinux

    Combining tiny little fancy birds with skateboarding is highly unusual but it continues to show how indie developers will try things AAA won't. SkateBIRD is exactly that and it's out now.

    Of course since you're only tiny, so are the skateparks which are all made from random everyday objects. You get to customize your bird too, as the developer points out that "Skateboarding is all about self-expression, and style is important no matter how small the skater. From cowboy hats, to colorful scarves and backpacks, SkateBIRD’s accessories let each skater’s personality shine. Look fresh while tracking down hidden mixtapes to unlock new songs or have a solo session with low-fi bird-hop beats in the background".

  • Valheim update Hearth & Home is out now with lots new | GamingOnLinux

    The big Hearth & Home update for the co-op survival game Valheim is out now and it's a big one. Touching on many aspects of the game to make it feel quite different overall.

    Valheim is still mostly the same game but there's so many tweaks that you're going to need a fresh world to experience it all. Thankfully characters can move between worlds so it's not a big issue. However, once you use a character on a new world or play a new world you can't play it with an older version.

  • Boiling Steam: Powered By Gitea… and Much More!

    How does Boiling Steam work behind the scenes? What’s Gitea? There is not much point in talking about the CMS (Content Management System) we use (WordPress), because that would be a rather boring topic in itself… Rather, how does the small team behind our publication actually organize itself? And what tools do we use and how does Gitea fit into it?

    Doing Peer Review also works well because we all have different backgrounds, tastes and experiences. If we were all from the same mold, it would not be nearly as helpful, nor let us reach beyond an audience we know individually.

    Peer Review should not be considered a silver bullet. It will not magically make all errors disappear or render every article perfect. But the more we have feedback, the more we can fix our individual blind spots, so the articles you end up reading are much more robust than their very first draft.

    There is no set period for Peer Review: it can take a few days to a few weeks, in case the article demands it. I would say that on average it takes 4-5 days between several rows of feedbacks and a final version. It’s definitely taking more time to follow such a process rather than just writing and pushing articles as soon as we have a draft ready.

    How do we deal with the fact that articles may take longer to finalize because of them? Well, we ensure we have a constant stream of new potential articles that we are working on: as long as we work on parallel on several of them, we will be able to release a few articles every week, statistically.

Meet The Incredible $15 Linux Computer

Brian Benchoff is an embedded engineer who has graced us with unique, whimsical devices like the RGB Gaming Coaster and the Zip Drive Tower. Now he’s back with a decidedly more practical design: a fully-functional Linux computer — screen and keyboard included — that costs a mere $15. Well, sort of. . . The self-described “Linux Swiss Army Knife” PC packs a surprising amount of functionality. With its 2.5-inch IPS display and 47-key silicone membrane keyboard (which feels like an older TV remote control), you can bust it out and run scripts, compile code, or even transform it into a crypto wallet.

6 Best Free and Open Source Stock Market Investment Tools

We have all read stories about people who have experimented living without spending any money whatsoever. By growing their own food, washing in the river, using a solar panel to provide electricity, and bartering for certain goods and services, these adventures have met with limited success.

While it can be a struggle to make ends meet, it is possible to make life easier through better money management. Financial management is about planning income and expenditure and making informed decisions that enable you to survive financially. Read more

Why universities choose open source collaboration software

Higher education institutions are actively looking for ways to adapt to rapidly improving technology and enable students to use advances in computing to study, collaborate, and learn in new ways. Many institutions have been using open source software to exchange knowledge more easily, ensure a better learning experience, and handle administration with fewer worries. Demand for open source software in higher education is drastically increasing especially as the need for remote learning grows. Universities usually have complex and unique systems. From a technological point of view, this makes it harder for universities to adopt technologies not built with their specific requirements in mind. Read more
