  • Haunted Chocolatier announced from Stardew Valley creator | GamingOnLinux

    ConcernedApe’s Haunted Chocolatier is the brand new announcement from the creator of Stardew Valley and it looks quite familiar in style with a new setting.

    After 10 years of working on Stardew Valley, it was clearly time for something new. In this game, you will play as a chocolatier living in a haunted castle. In order to thrive in your new role, you will have to gather rare ingredients, make delicious chocolates, and sell them in a chocolate shop. It's a little more than that though, with a bit of a fantasy flavour being sprinkled on top.

  • Steam Continues Improving Its Shader Pre-Caching Support, Other Beta Improvements - Phoronix

    A new Steam client beta is out with a few Linux enhancements worth noting.

    For many months now Valve has been working to improve its shader (pre-)caching support to speed-up game load times and providing a smoother gaming experience for games otherwise compiling shaders on-demand. With the Steam Deck public release quickly approaching, they continue to better that Steam pre-caching support.

  • Steam Client Beta improves Steam Cloud syncing, Shader Pre-Caching | GamingOnLinux

    Valve have a fresh Steam Client Beta with some pretty big back-end improvements, likely readying up as much as possible for the upcoming Steam Deck.

    There's a few general fixes for connections to the Steam servers, a rare black screen when loading Library pages and announcements plus an update of the embedded Chromium build. It gets a lot more interesting than that though.

  • Wildflower: From the Embers is a story-driven RPG about a young witch in a new town | GamingOnLinux

    Ice Water Games (Tenderfoot Tactics) have announced Wildflower: From the Embers, a new story-driven RPG that focuses on a young witch and her life in a new town.

    Sounds like quite a varied game too, taking elements from their previous games blended with something new. It has the magical combat from Tenderfoot Tactics with a bigger map and a focus on scale with some units being massive plus you're dealing with emotional attributes and abilities, visibility and stealth. Then there's also the gardening that builds off their earlier title Viridi and cooking inspired by Breath of the Wild.

    [...]

    The release is planned for 2022 with Linux native support. Once we get more details and a trailer we will post it up in a new article as we'll be following this with great interest - it looks gorgeous.

Obarun is gradually becoming a fork of Artix

Take a look at this on your own and judge. It may not be in the official repositories but the last commit is signed by the Founder of Obarun and the rest by his co-author. When OUR was released to the public one of the claimed rules of participation was to not build any parts of systemd or any package that wouldn?t conform to Obarun. Obarun?s version of pacman incorporated a block from installing systemd or its libraries. Elogind is the central part, the essence of systemd. When you have no set principles and values, anything goes, and you can drift from one character to another, without remorse. Obarun will not be removed from the strict list of distros without systemd or elogind, but as soon as this OUR package moves to the repos it will be ?bye bye? Obarun from any mention in this site. At least VOID never claimed to not involve systemd or its parts into the distribution, people just assumed it was systemd-free because of the use of runit and consolekit. So VOID was more justified to switch to systemd?s logind. Read more Newly-updated: 2022 hardcore list of linux distributions without elogind and other systemd parts
