  • Rise of the Tomb Raider Is Coming to Linux and Mac, Ported by Feral Interactive

    Feral Interactive announced today that it started ported the Rise of the Tomb Raider dramatic action-adventure game featuring the gorgeous Lara Croft for the macOS and Linux platforms.

    Initially released in early November 2015 for Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Xbox One gaming consoles, and a year later for Sony's PlayStation 4 console, Rise of the Tomb Raider was available for the PC master race only on the Microsoft Windows operating system since January 2016.

    Using the latest Vulkan (on Linux) and Metal 2 API (on macOS) graphics technologies, the superb and thrilling Rise of the Tomb Raider adventure game is currently being ported by Feral Interactive, an UK-based video games publisher known for porting Tomb Raider 2013, to Mac and Linux platforms.

  • Farming sim 'Cattle and Crops' hits Steam Early Access, has Linux support

    If you're after a slightly more realistic farming sim, as in one that's not 2D pixel stuff, Cattle and Crops [Steam, Official Site] certainly seems interesting.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, I did look, but this might be the first "proper" farming sim to be made available on Linux. I didn't find anything else like it, so that's progress I guess. Earlier today, the game released on Steam and it's currently still in-development, so it's an Early Access title. The good news, is that Linux support is already there and it works reasonably well.

  • THQ Nordic now own Koch Media GmbH

    Not that it really means all that much for us, but interesting nonetheless, THQ Nordic has acquired Koch Media GmbH.

    Naturally, the announcements contain a lot of legal-speak, but some of it is quite interesting. THQ Nordic have actually put out a few Linux games like the revamp of Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy, the updated Imperium Galactica II and the RPG Silver. They're also the publisher of games that support Linux like The Book of Unwritten Tales, This Is the Police, The Dwarves and a bunch more.

  • The Linux beta of EVERSPACE has been updated with Unreal Engine 4.17 and bug fixes

    The unofficial Linux beta of space shooter EVERSPACE [Steam] has been updated again, this time it brings in an updated Unreal Engine 4.17 and bug fixes.

  • WHAT THE GOLF? A silly physics-based anti-golf game will support Linux

    What do you get when you attempt to turn everything into Golf? Silly physics-based anti-golf game WHAT THE GOLF? [Official Site, Fig Campaign] aims to answer that question. It's a game aimed at people who might find normal Golf a bit boring, like me.

    It's being developed by developer Triband, who are also working on "Keyboard Sports - Saving QWERTY" [Steam] which will also have Linux support that will release sometime this year.

  • Have you played HyperRogue? A non-Euclidean roguelike that combines a free and paid model

    HyperRogue [Official Site, Steam, itch.io] is a non-Euclidean roguelike that has not only messed with my brain, it also combines a free and paid development model with code that's under the GPL.

  • Fantasy Farming: Orange Season, a farm-life RPG recently added Linux support

    While searching for other farming sims while covering Cattle and Crops, I ended up coming across Fantasy Farming: Orange Season [Steam, Official Site, itch.io] and it just recently added Linux support. It's being developed by Hudell Tales, which is made up on a single developer.

    Note: It's currently in Early Access so it's not finished—expect bugs.

  • Super Tony Land is a story-based platformer that will let you build your own awesome stories

    Super Tony Land [Official Site, Kickstarter] sounds like a platformer that I could enjoy, one that will enable you to make your own challenges, worlds and stories.

    The game will use a "block based programming language" allowing you to create some really wild stuff. Not just in the form of levels, but vehicles and all sorts of wacky creations.

  • pocketsprite game console is the open-source tamagotchi of 2018

    ...it’s open source. sure, you could in theory just turn on the pocketsprite wi-fi, connect your computer up to it, and download games via pocketsprite’s desktop interface, but where’s the challenge in that? if you understand a few youtube-tutorial’s-worth of hacking, you could upload whatever you want to this tiny emulator...

  • Rise of the Tomb Raider announced for Linux, port from Feral Interactive

    Many asked, now Feral Interactive have answered. Rise of the Tomb Raider [Steam] is officially on the way to Linux! What a fantastic way to start a Tuesday with news like this! It still amazes me to this day that Linux will have games like this, very happy with the news!

    Feral aren't saying exactly when it will arrive, but they had a tweet out that said "This Winter" which has since been deleted (Edit: replaced with this one). You can see the official confirmation on their official site which now says "This spring", so it could be here sometime between March and late June.

  • Feral Is Bringing Rise of the Tomb Raider To Linux

    Feral Interactive has announced today that they are porting Rise of the Tomb Raider to Linux.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider was released for Windows in January of 2016 as the latest in the Tomb Raider franchise. Now two years later the Linux port will be released in the months ahead. When Feral has asked the community about games coming to Linux, this title has repeatedly been brought up as a title many Linux gamers would like to see following the port of the 2013 Tomb Raider game.

Using Linux on the GPD Win 2 (so far)

Filed under

Gaming

Since Steam already works (with full game controller support) on Windows 10, I didn’t bother trying to install Steam or any heavier-duty games in Linux.

Overall I’d say that for now Linux on the GPD Win 2 is a bit of a mixed bag, at least for the prototype I’m testing. It’s usable, but I can’t think of a lot of reasons why you would really choose it over Windows 10 on this particular device… unless you either really hate Windows or really know what you’re doing and think you might be able to get the non-working hardware to function properly.

That said, there is a way to have the best of both worlds. The GPD Win 10 ships with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update pre-installed, which means you can use the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) to install Ubuntu or OpenSUSE from the Windows Store.
