  • Shakedown Hawaii, the follow up to Retro City Rampage should be on Linux

  • Development On Valve's VOGL Debugger Seems To Have Stalled

    Two years ago at this time all of the excitement was building up around Valve's VOGL OpenGL debugger. While the VOGL source code hasn't even been public for two years yet, there hasn't been any new public activity to report on with the debugger in over a half-year.

    VOGL was getting much attention when it was talked about in early 2014 and then open-sourced in March of that year. The first few months were exciting with VOGL seeing plenty of commits, work on Voglperf, etc.

  • The new Master of Orion 4X strategy game might see a Linux release

    I've put millions of hours into Master of Orion 2 both on Windows and in later years in DosBox on Linux, so to hear about a brand new Master of Orion was quite exciting. I've been following it for a while, and it looks like it might get a Linux release.

    I noticed on SteamDB they added Linux to the supported "oslist", that's a great sign but remember this is completely unconfirmed right now. I have reached out to the developer to get confirmation, and will update you all if I get any.

I remember very well that, after having played through Portal 2 and found it to easy, I was pointed to Portal Stories: Mel in several comments, I thought “Well, it cannot be that difficult!”. I couldn’t have been more wrong!
