  • Super Blood Hockey is coming to Linux

    Super Blood Hockey [Steam, Official Site], a violent homage to classic 8-bit and 16-bit ice hockey games is on its way to Linux.

  • Vaporum, a steampunk dungeon crawler could see a Linux release

    Vaporum [Official Site], a rather intense looking steampunk dungeon crawler could see a Linux release, depending on how it does at release.

  • Masterpiece: Street Fighter II

    Street Fighter II was an arcade monster that has stood the test of time. Even today, it's Capcom's golden goose and it's not hard to see why. Even after the unsuccessful clones and the innumerable follow-ups, this game still has it all.

    Before they had the complementary outfits, before it was super dynamic cooking time, before Ken did stuff like this, there was the original Street Fighter II, a masterpiece of fighting games. It spawned many, many successful sequels from Capcom and it set a new standard for strategy, graphics, sound, and gameplay. It was so huge that it even managed to make "hadouken!" a commonly recognized meme, even though it was an arcade-only game for years after its release.

  • Distrust, inspired by John Carpenter's "The Thing" could see Linux support

    Okay, this looks and sounds pretty great. Distrust [Steam, Official Site], a game inspired by John Carpenter's "The Thing" could see Linux support.

  • SDL 2.0.6 Gearing Up For Release With Many Changes

    It's looking like SDL 2.0.6 will be released in the very near future as this important cross-platform library commonly used by game developers.

    It's been 10 months since the SDL 2.0.5 point release while now it looks like SDL 2.0.6 preparations are underway with their Hg code-base this weekend seeing documentation additions and other preparations being made for what will likely be tagging soon of v2.0.6.

  • Developers of We Happy Few have started working on the Linux version

    Finally, developers of We Happy Few [Official Site, GOG, Steam, Humble] from Compulsion Games started working on the Linux version, and they plan to be ready on or shortly after the release of the game which is scheduled for April 13 next year.

  • Planet Nomads drops plans to have co-op and multiplayer

    The Early Access sandbox game Planet Nomads [Official Site] has officially dropped plans to include any kind of co-op or multiplayer.

    A massive shame, as these sandbox games really do end up boring by yourself. Unless they make the game somehow incredibly good, this move may not go down well with their Kickstarter backers and Early Access buyers. In fact, negative reviews for this are already starting to appear.

  • Some thoughts on Axis Football 2017

    Touting much gridiron action, Axis Football 2017 [Official Site] is the latest installment in the American Football franchise. I took the game for a spin and have a few thoughts to share.

  • The developer behind Nidhogg 2 has detailed some reasons why it may not come to Linux

    Nidhogg 2 [Steam, Official Site], the sequel to the indie hit of 2014 may not come to Linux and the developer has listed reasons why. Hopefully people can help get this going.

A soft push for the fairer sex

International Centre for Free and Open Source Software (ICFOSS), an autonomous institution under Government of Kerala and Society for Promotion of Alternative Computing and Employment (SPACE), an NGO promoting free software, have been conducting ‘Women Hackers,’ a project to bring more women into free software. The programme involves intensive residential workshops on college campuses. It was during one such hackathon that the idea for ‘I install’ was put forward by the students of LBS College of Engineering, Kasaragod. A GNU/Linux installation camp, the event aims to promote the idea of taking control over the technology that you use. Those students who received training at the hackathon will be part of ‘I install’ where they impart their learning to other students. Read more
