  • Action-adventure game 'Chasm' to finally release this summer with Linux support

    Turns out I missed the fact that developer Bit Kid announced that Chasm will finally release this summer complete with Linux support.

    Chasm was funded on Kickstarter years ago back in May of 2013, with $191K in funds from nearly seven thousand backers. Originally going under the name of Discord Games, they later changed to Bit Kid in 2016 (likey due to the rise of Discord's own popularity). Naturally, some have questioned why it has taken so long, but when you compare indie games trying to get funding to much larger AAA projects the latter are usually announced when they're quite far into development.

  • Moonlighter, the action-RPG with rogue-lite elements has a delay in the Linux version, still coming

    Moonlighter [Official Site], the action RPG with rogue-lite elements from Digital Sun and 11bit Studios has seen a bit of a delay with no Linux release yet. The developer is clear that it's still coming!

  • Risk-like strategy game 'Hex Empire 3' is now available on Linux

    Hex Empire 3 [Official Site] looks like quite a nice strategy game for those who like Risk and it's now available on Linux.

    Currently in Early Access, with a fully playable skirmish mode and map editor. It will also gain a campaign and multiplayer, which are still in development. What's interesting, is that there's nothing random about it, so performing an action will do exactly what it says it will.

  • Sci-fi platformer 'Transmogrify' will have you turning aliens into useful objects, built with Godot Engine

    Sci-fi puzzle platformer Transmogrify from Odyssey Entertainment has you turning aliens into useful objects to help solve puzzles.

    The idea came as a result of a Ludum Dare 32 game jam, which had a theme of "An Unconventional Weapon". They say that someone messaged them with the idea to make a weapon that doesn't kill, so they ran with the idea.

  • RADV Gets A Performance Improving Workaround For Vega, Helps Dota 2

    In my recent 12-way Linux GPU tests with the very newest Radeon/NVIDIA drivers the RX 580 in particular was performing great on the open-source RADV driver against the NVIDIA competition while the latest Vega GPUs were a bit lagging still. Fortunately, RADV co-founder Bas Nieuwenhuizen has landed another performance optimization.

  • If Killer 7 on Steam is using Dolphin, the emulator authors are pleased

    “If they do use Dolphin, they’d need to follow the GNU General Public License V2,” he explained. “But that’s as much as I know from the licensing side of things.”

    That GNU license enables individuals and corporations to use, modify, and distribute Dolphin code for commercial use as long as they track changes to the code with timestamps and make that info publicly available along with full instructions for use.

  • OpenStack at a Crossroads

    The OpenStack of a few years ago is dead, however. What has emerged from the hype cycle is a materially different foundation, mission and software stack, with a great deal of change still ahead of it.

  • The OpenStack Foundation grows beyond OpenStack

    The OpenStack Foundation has made a considerable change to its development process and governance structure by introducing two open source projects that are not part of the OpenStack cloud platform.

    This week, the organization launched version 1.0 of Kata Containers - a runtime system with an emphasis on speed and security, enabling users to boot a VM in as little as five seconds - and introduced a brand new project called Zuul, spinning out the software development and integration platform that has been used by the OpenStack community internally since 2012.

    The broad aim is to tap into customers' grumbles over legacy vendor lock-in, while convincing the bigger customers that they can move to an open-source database without compromising performance.
