Hidden in Plain Sight is a rather amusing sounding local multiplayer game. You have to blend in with a crowd on NPCs and do various things.
Note: It has no single-player or online play, local multiplayer only.
The Living Dungeon developers have posted on Steam requesting to see how much interest there is for their game on Linux.
You can find the post on Steam here, so if it looks like a game you would buy and play on Linux be sure to let them know.
I'm going to be honest, I had never heard of openFrameworks until today. It claims it's a C++ toolkit that glues together several commonly used libraries to help you work quickly. They are working on a Vulkan backend that now supports Linux.
They just in the last day posted an update on their progress, and they claim they have their Vulkan backend working on Linux and Windows, apparently Linux is faster too.
I don't have a freaking clue what's going in the teaser trailer for Sinner's Sorrow, but wow am I interested.
It's the second game from the developer who gave us "Zenzizenzic", and it's a rather different game indeed.
In the world of Android, we’ve become accustomed to the myriad of different brands and manufacturers putting their own twist on Android. While this has caused some friction in some circles, it has given certain devices a unique sense of identity and now that most of these skins have been toned down somewhat, they often add a little more value, too. The case is no more clear than it is with Android tablets, stock Android might be just fine and dandy for a lot of users on smartphones, but on tablets it can feel stark and limited. The added features from the likes of Samsung and Sony often make an Android tablet a hell of a lot more useful out of the box, but in the world of Android smartwatches, there’s none of this. The only thing that device manufacturers can realistically change with their Android Wear watches is the different watch faces they include and include some different apps. Is it about time that this changed?
Stop me if you've heard this idea before: Imagine turning your smartphone into a laptop just by plugging it into a laptop "shell."
Yeah... it's not a new idea and yet Superbook, a product that promises to turn your Android phone into a laptop, has already smashed its Kickstarter campaign goal of $50,000 with more than $398,000 pledged as of this writing and 28 days left to go.
This week the folks at BlackBerry have had their latest Android device revealed by the FCC. Re-revealed, we might say, as the device was first leaked several weeks ago with its partner, both BlackBerry smartphones running Android. This device is being shown by the FCC this week with model name STH100-2 (RJD211LW) with GSM quad-band, UMTS penta-band, and LTE deca-band connectivity technology inside. We will very likely see this device released inside the United States very soon.
A US-based startup has launched a smart laptop shell that turns your Android smartphone into a complete laptop -- making it more convenient and affordable for people in developing countries like India and South Africa to carry their office in their pocket, literally.
The shell, called Superbook by Andromium, makes an Android smartphone output look very much like a desktop environment. It is essentially a "dumb terminal"-- a notebook without a processor but with a keyboard, battery, trackpad and display, TreeHugger reported on Saturday.
Finnish telecommunications giant Nokia is all set to make a smartphone comeback with two new Android 7.0 Nougat devices by the end of this year, a media report said on Saturday.
The two unnamed devices will have premium metal designs complete with IP68 certification, which means they will be as water resistant as Samsung's Galaxy S7, The Inquirer reported.
The smartphones may come up with 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch QHD screens, along with fingerprint scanner and "innovations" in the camera, the report noted.
Cyanogen Inc. seems to be in trouble. A report from Android Police cites "several sources" that say the three-year-old Android software house will be laying off 20 percent of its workforce. One source said the company would "pivot" to "apps" and away from OS development.
