  • Transport Fever confirmed for day-1 Linux release on November 8th, plus gameplay video

    Transport Fever [Official Site, Steam] is really starting to look great, and the best news is that Linux is confirmed to be a day-1 release. We also have a new gameplay video.

    This is the first actual proper gameplay video, and it's really got me excited to try it out.

    It's impressive that you can zoom right into street level and see each individual person walking or driving around.

  • Looks like the beautiful open source RTS '0 A.D.' is closing in on the next release, Alpha 21
  • Colony building sim 'Maia' has a big update, taking another look

    'Maia' [Official Site, Steam] is an Early Access colony building sim that has always shown promise, but the problem is that it has been quite buggy. This new release has polished the game up quite a bit.

    The AI certainly feels a lot more polished, there's far less wandering around when you have set down some build orders, something that plagued earlier builds. It still happens, but far less often.

  • Tyranny, the new RPG from Obsidian, gets a release date

    This is a game I’m personally very excited for. I enjoyed Pillars of Eternity a great deal – even if it had more than its fair share of kinks at launch. The premise for Tyranny is a world where the evil overlord has won and the player is entrusted to pacify and hand down judgment in the conquered lands. Developer diaries and videos emphasize that choices can have very far-ranging consequences on the game world and so this should be a title with plenty of replayability. The setting and lore also seem pretty interesting so I can’t wait until the game is out to explore it.

  • Steam Dev Days: VR, VR, VR; Valve Looking To Contract Mesa Developers For AMD Work

    For those not paying attention to the #SteamDevDays tweets from the many developers at the Seattle event, the first day of Valve's 2016 conference appears to have been a huge success and the overall focus was on VR.

    This stable release contains bugfixes, new features are included in development releases from 1.9 branch.

  • 'Enclave', the 2003 action RPG now has a Linux beta that uses Wine

    'Enclave' [Steam] is another Wine-port from Topware Interactive who promised to bring their older published titles to Linux. I'm totally okay with this, and it's currently in Beta.

    Wine enables us to play a great many things we otherwise wouldn't be able to, so for developers to actually test it and release their old games with a build of Wine that works well, can only be good for us in the long run.

  • Just a heads up, PAYDAY 2 is currently broken again on Linux

    For the second time in only a few months, Overkill has managed to push out an update for PAYDAY 2 [Steam] that has completely broken the Linux version.

    The developers have noted they are aware of it, but no solution has been offered as of right now.

  • 'Noob Squad' is a perfect example of why Valve need to pay more attention to their own store [Ed: Mono.]

Ubuntu-Based ExTiX OS Updated for Intel Compute Sticks with Improved Installer

GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton announced this past weekend the release of an updated build of his Ubuntu-based ExTiX Linux distribution for Intel Compute Stick devices. Last month, we reported on the initial availability of a port of the ExTiX operating system for Intel Compute Sticks, boasting the lightweight and modern LXQt 0.10.0 desktop environment and powered by the latest Linux 4.8 kernel, tweaked by Arne Exton for Intel Atom processors. And now, ExTiX Build 161203 is out as a drop-in replacement for Build 161119, bringing a much-improved Ubiquity graphics installer that should no longer crash, as several users who attempted to install the Ubuntu-based GNU/Linux distro on their Intel Compute Stick devices reported.
