  • cursedmate: Right ingredients, but not yet perfect

    cursedmate is python-driven, and isn’t a bad game on the whole. The animation and movement effects are smooth, and pop-up menus and displays don’t get in the way of the action.

  • Three ways to run Windows software in Linux

    Some users switch to Linux to completely get away from Windows. But others still find some Windows software helpful or important. If you're one of those users, you'll be happy to know that there are a number of ways you can run Windows software in Linux.

  • Red Eclipse 1.5 Overview & Screenshots

    Red Eclipse is a free, open-source first-person shooter based upon the Cube 2 engine, with both single-player and multi-player support. It’s a fantasy shooter that bundles a very large number of maps and comes with modes such as DM, CTF or Defend and Control. For some reason, the game always gives me a feeling of calm, and the music theme is really great. So let’s take a brief look at this new version.

  • Reversi, A Classic Board Game Released On Steam For Linux, Developer Postmortem

    Radium was released for Windows on Desura last year. After getting greenlit for Steam earlier this month with a promise of a Linux version, it made its Linux début on Steam shortly after.

  • Warlocks Renamed To Warlocks Vs Shadows & Now On Steam For Linux

  • How to run Windows software in Linux: Everything you need to know

    Linux is more capable than ever. With over 1000 Linux games available on Steam and a general shift towards more web-based desktop software, there’s less need for Windows than ever. After all, you can now watch Netflix on Linux without any hacks, and you can even use Microsoft Office on Linux—a web-based version of it, at least.

    But, as most dedicated Linux desktop users will eventually discover, there comes a time when you just need to run a particular piece of Windows software on your Linux PC. There are quite a few ways to do so. Here’s what you need to know.

  • Frozen Depths: Clear, cold perfection

    I promised I wouldn’t hold out too many roguelike games unless they could show off something unusual, either thematic or mechanic. The *angbands from a week ago were all viable games, but either didn’t bring anything new to the table, or just didn’t quite satisfy.

  • net-o-grama: An ancient idea, done very well

    Because let’s face it: Anagram games are not new. They’ve been around for centuries. Ordinarily there’s a pen and paper involved, and you might sit down with a newspaper and work some of them out. I’ve even seen pocket-sized paperback books of anagram games in supermarket checkout lines, so it’s nothing innovative to come up with a computer program that does the same.

  • Eschalon Book I, II & III 75% Off on GOG.com, Unrest 50%

    While Steam celebrates the 2K 10th anniversary publisher sale this weekend, GOG.com launched the Weekend Promo Spring Breakers discounts for a number of games, several of which are available for Linux as well. Included here are all three chapters of the Eschalon role-playing series and Unrest Special Edition, an RPG launched in 2014.

  • Big Graphics Card Comparison Of Metro Redux Games On Linux

    While in the process of benchmarking BioShock Infinite on Linux with AMD and NVIDIA hardware given the Linux release of the title this week, I also took this opportunity to run a 22-way graphics card comparison of Metro Last Light Redux and Metro 2033 Redux on the latest AMD and NVIDIA graphics drivers atop Ubuntu 15.04. Here's those results.

  • No More Probes, A Really Stylish Survival RTS Coming To Linux

    I've tested out a bit of No More Probes, and I found it to be a nicely designed strategy game that mixes in survival and a little bit of tower defence too.

    I absolutely love the visual style of it, and the gameplay seems to be pretty decent too even this early on!

  • Cube2-Forked Red Eclipse 1.5 Sees Huge Update

    Version 1.5 of the open-source, cross-platform Red Eclipse first person shooter was released this weekend. Red Eclipse, which in turn is based on the Cube Engien 2, has seen some significant updates with this being the first major update in about two years.

  • tzar: A work forever in progress

    “tzar” is an acronym for “that zombie apocalypse roguelike,” which tells you in one quick motion what exactly you’re getting into. I don’t know if the author planned for tzar to compete with things like zombies! or Cataclysm or even curses-of-the-undead; it could be that the choice of the zombie survival genre is a convenient theme. It shouldn’t really matter.

7 stories that make you feel good about open source in 2015 (so far)

One of the great things about open source is its reach beyond just the software we use. Open source isn’t just about taking principled stands, it's about making things better for the world around us. It helps spread new ideas by letting anyone with an interest modify and replicate those ideas in their own communities. In this collection, let’s take a look back at some of the best articles we’ve shared this year about the ways that open source is making an impact on communities and improving the lives of people across the world.

Exclusive interview with Hans de Raad

In my daily life (both personal and professional) I use open source for just about anything, from LibreOffice to Drupal, Kolab, Piwik, Apache, KDE, etc. Being part of the communities of these projects for me is a very special extra dimension that creates a lot of extra motivation and satisfaction. For me, open source isn’t so much of a choice it is simply the standard. Read more

  • OpenVZ / Virtuozzo 7 Beta First Impressions
    There will eventually be two distinct versions... a free version and a commercial version. So far as I can tell they currently call it Virtuozzo 7 but in a comparison wiki page they use the column names Virtuozzo 7 OpenVZ (V7O) and Virtuozzo 7 Commercial (V7C). The original OpenVZ, which is still considered the stable OpenVZ release at this time based on the EL6-based OpenVZ kernel, appears to be called OpenVZ Legacy.

  • Qt 5.5 Officially Released
  • KStars Observers Management patched
    This update is a little break from my current GSoC project so i won’t talk about my progress just yet. I will talk about the current observers management dialog that is currently active in KStars. Basically, an observation session requires observer information like first name, last name and contact. Currently, an observer could be added only from the settings menu so i thought that it would be more intuitive if this functionality was placed in a more appropirate place and a proper GUI was to be implemented for a better user experience.

  • KDE ActivityManager in Emacs
    Today I whipped up a small Emacs minor-mode to interface with KDE's ActivityManager system. It's my first minor-mode and it's janky as fuck right now, but I'm going to expand on it to eventually be able to filter, for example, to just buffers that are linked to your current activity, pushing me towards a long-standing goal of mine to create a system which flows with what I'm doing, rather than forcing me in to its workflow.
  • Convergence through Divergence
    This time around, I’m adding a mechanism that allows us to list plugins, applications (and the general “service”) specific for a given form factor. In normal-people-language, that means that I want to make it possible to specify whether an application or plugin should be shown in the user interface of a given device. Let’s look at an example: KMail. KMail has two user interfaces, the desktop version, a traditional fat client offering all the features that an email client could possibly have, and a touch-friendly version that works well on devices such as smart phones and tablets. If both are installed, which should be shown in the user interface, for example the launcher? The answer is, unfortunately: we can’t really tell as there currently is no scheme to derive this information from in a reliable way. With the current functionality that is offered by KDE Frameworks and Plasma, we’d simply list both applications, they’re both installed and there is no metadata that could possibly tell us the difference.
  • smarter status hiding

If you wander close to a wireless network, and your friend knows the password, and you both have Wi-Fi Sense, you can now log into that network.
