GNOME Games 3.18: A New App To Organize Your Linux Games

Filed under

GNOME
Gaming

There's a new GNOME application called Games -- not to be confused with the few GNOME games out there like Sudoku and Solitaire. GNOME Games is not a game itself but intended as a tool for managing your game library.

GNOME Games is trying to be a consistent way to access all your games on a Linux system whether they be games installed by Steam, games installed from your package manager, video game console ROMs, web-based games, and other gaming formats. For some games -- like those supporting the Libretro API -- it then tries to offer a bit of integration for managing the game.

  • Report: Valve is messing about with some ‘Linux compatible’ games on Steam

    According to several reports on Gaming on Linux, Valve has been removing icons for “Linux compatible” games that don’t work 100-hundred percent perfectly with its Steam OS. Linux users who want to download those games cannot download these games even if they don’t use Steam OS, according to the report.

Those Linux users who have already purchased games that are “Linux compatible” can still install and play those games despite them being removed…

  • Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition hitting consoles and Linux next week

  • Dungeons & Dragons-based Sword Coast Legends out today on Linux, PC, Mac

    As previously reported, it’s a classic top-down RPG in the same vein as Baldur’s Gate and similar titles, only with the ability to ruin your friends’ good time by acting as Dungeon Master.

    The PC, Mac, and Linux title contains a real-time Dungeon Master mode, which like the table-top version of D&D, allows the DM to guide players through customizable adventures. Rather than focusing on typical of 4v1 games, the DM mode “encourages DMs to engage and empower their players” but they can be rather brutal if it suits them.
