  • Atom Zombie Smasher has been updated, Linux version is now on Steam

    Atom Zombie Smasher the rather cool indie game from a while ago has finally been updated and it has a Linux version on Steam.

  • Manage your own nightclub in 'Party Hard Tycoon', an upcoming strategy spin-off of 'Party Hard'

    Party Hard Tycoon was announced a few days ago and right now the developers are inviting people to join the Alpha, which will start soon. Because the Linux icon isn't listed in the Steam store page, I decided to ask them via e-mail to see if the Alpha also includes Linux gamers (considering the first game was ported, it should be coherent that this one too, after all). Although regarding the Alpha their answer was negative, it's good to know that the game indeed will have a Linux version just like its predecessor...

  • Everyone is invisible in 'Invisigun Heroes' a multiplayer, single-screen stealth battle arena

    Invisigun Heroes sounds like a pretty funny idea, everyone is invisible, but you still have to find a way to battle them. It's not as crazy as it sounds, as it seems you appear briefly if you use a weapon. Very cleverly done, with really nice graphics.

  • Mother Russia Bleeds released on Linux, go beat 'em up, some thoughts included

    First thing: If you have more than one monitor, it may start on the wrong one. Putting it in a window, dragging it over and setting it back to full-screen works fine though.

    I highly suggested using a gamepad for this, as the keyboard controls are quite bad. I accidentally tried changing the "Select" keybind which was set as left-ALT, but it wouldn't let me re-use that key. The keybindings section of the options doesn't actually detect all the keys, which is annoying.

  • ‘Rocket League Rumble,’ complete with Mac/Linux support, lands this month

    Last month Psyonix announced the next Rocket League update, and now we have more information, including a release date.

    Set to drop on September 8, Rocket League Rumble will be the same gameplay that fans have grown to love, but with a ton more power-ups.

  • In-Depth with the Rumble Update
  • OpenMW 0.40.0 Released!

    The OpenMW team is proud to announce the release of version 0.40.0! Grab it from our Downloads Page for all operating systems. This release brings some small new features, but mainly bug fixes and improvements. We’re winding down on implementable features, these are exciting times for OpenMW, even if releases have a little less user-visible changes. The game is basically fully playable, and future releases will bring mostly more fixes and optimizations.

  • Audio Capturing Support Landed This Week In SDL2
  • GOG withdraw their statement about The Witcher 3 never planned for Linux, they have no idea

    Maybe it will one day, maybe it won't. We again are back to officially not knowing what's going on at all.

  • Near Death Review

    The Linux version runs fantastic. It picked up my Xbox controller with no hiccups and it stayed well above sixty frames-per-second for the most part. In fact, in the game’s first patch there’s a Tux object hidden in one of the rooms that you can only find while playing the Linux version (spoiler: it’s in one of the rooms in Science). There’s not much that you can do with it other than pick it up and drop it, but it’s pretty cool we got some love there. Since the game was built with Unity I was expecting to get a fairly moderate amount of crashes — due to Unity not running so well with GNU/Linux — but I actually only got two crashes after trying to resume the game from a game over, and then after that it suddenly stopped. Never gone through a crash since. Props to the guys at Orthogonal!

Linux Graphics

  • The RADV Radeon Vulkan Linux Driver Continues Picking Up Features
  • OpenChrome Maintainer Making Some Progress On VIA DRM Driver
    Independent developer Kevin Brace took over maintaining the OpenChrome DDX driver earlier this year to improve the open-source VIA Linux graphics support while over the summer he's slowly been getting up to speed on development of the OpenChrome DRM driver. The OpenChrome DRM driver was making progress while James Simmons was developing it a few years back, but since he left the project, it's been left to bit rot. It will take a lot of work even to get this previously "good" code back to working on the latest Linux 4.x mainline kernels given how DRM core interfaces have evolved in recent times.
  • My talk about Mainline Explicit Fencing at XDC 2016!
    Last week I was at XDC in Helsinki where I presented about the Explicit Fencing work we’ve been doing on the Mainline Linux Kernel in the lastest few months. There was a livestream of all presentations during the conference and recorded sections are available. You can check the video of my presentation. Check out the slides too.

Linux Kernel News

  • Linux 4.8 gets rc8
    Chill, penguin-fanciers: Linux lord Linus Torvalds is sitting on the egg that is Linux 4.8 for another week. As Torvalds indicated last week, this version of the kernel still needs work and therefore earned itself an eighth release candidate.
  • Linux 4.8-rc8 Released: Linux 4.8 Next Weekend
  • Linux Kernel 4.7.5 Released with Numerous ARM and Networking Improvements
    The fifth maintenance update to the Linux 4.7 kernel series, which is currently the most advanced, secure and stable kernel branch you can get for your GNU/Linux operating system, has been announced by Greg Kroah-Hartman. Linux kernel 4.7.5 is here only ten days after the release of the previous maintenance version, namely Linux kernel 4.7.4, and it's a big update that changes a total of 213 files, with 1774 insertions and 971 deletions, which tells us that the kernel developers and hackers had a pretty busy week patching all sorts of bugs and security issues, as well as to add various, much-needed improvements.
  • Blockchain Summit Day Two: End-Of-Conference Highlights From Shanghai
    Financial services firms and startups looking to be the bridge to blockchain ledgers continued to dominate presentations on the second and final day of the Blockchain Summit, ending International Blockchain Week in Shanghai that also saw Devcon2 and a startup demo competition.
  • Testing Various HDDs & SSDs On Ubuntu With The Linux 4.8 Kernel
    Here are some fresh benchmarks of various solid-state drives (SATA 3.0 SSDs plus two NVMe M.2 SSDs) as well as two HDDs for getting a fresh look at how they are performing using the Linux 4.8 Git kernel. After publishing Friday's Intel 600P Series NVME SSD tests of this lower-cost NVM Express storage line-up, I continued testing a few other SSDs and HDDs. These additional reference points are available for your viewing pleasure today. The additional data is also going to be used for reference in a Linux 4.8-based BCache SSD+HDD comparison being published next week. Stay tuned for those fresh BCache numbers.

Behind the GNOME 3.22 Release Video

This is less than usual. The time saving mostly stems from spending less time recording for the release video. At first thought you might think recording would be a breeze but it can be one of the most frustrating aspects of making the videos. Each cycle the GNOME community lands improvement a wide set of GNOME’s applications. So before each release I have to find some way to run a dozen of applications from master. I do this either by: Read more
