    Survivor Squad: Gauntlets has recently added Linux support to their Early Access title. Honestly, I didn't think much of it looking at screenshots, but you really do need to watch a gameplay video to understand it, and it looks fun.

    I really do love the idea behind this game, and making sure to remember to keep checking everywhere looks like mad fun. Looks like it can get quite difficult too.

    It is in Early Access, but the developers stated that the full release is only just around the corner!

  • Dungeons 2 Strategy Game Released On Steam For Linux

    Dungeons 2 is another game to come to Linux thanks to Kalypso Media Digital, and it's very much like the old Dungeon Keeper games.

    Reviewers are giving it the thumbs up so far, so it looks like it could be a good one. It looks like it has a few performance issues, and silly bugs, but it's a brand new release so that's to be expected.

    While we sadly don't hear too much these days from Unigine on the Linux gaming front, their high-end 3D graphics engine remains Linux-compatible and they seem to be doing well off in the area of simulations and more.

  • Shadow Warrior For Linux Updated, Now More Graphically Awesome

    The Shadow Warrior release for Linux did miss out a few graphical features, but the developers have now implemented them all.

    I’ve tested it out and wow, the performance with everything on Ultra is amazing. I was getting above 150FPS a lot on my Nvidia 970, and this is at 1920x1080 resolution. This is how you port a game folks! Can easily recommend it now.

  • Techland Presentation On Porting Dying Light To Linux

    A key fact here is that out of around 300 people, only two people work on the Linux version (the two presenting). While it’s true that throwing more people into it doesn’t always help, it’s hard to imagine the colossal project they had to port. This presentation will give you an idea of the struggle they had, and kudos to them for their work.
