  • Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon, an excellent Linux & SteamOS game for kids

    Today was another typical British summers day (rain), so I decided to pick up Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon and it has impressed me.

    I am always iffy about letting my son play games for some reason, partially due to the views of other parents I am around and how poorly they look at video games. Today I thought “screw it”. I personally see nothing wrong with them, as long as they are age appropriate.

    I picked up Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon which is the first point and click adventure game my son has ever played. Initially I though the interface would be confusing, but much to my surprise it’s actually relatively simple even for a young child's mind to grasp.

    It's a sweet and simple little point & click game where you play as a car called Putt-Putt and you accidentally have a trip into space. It has some really fun activities for kids clicking on random objects and seeing what happens, small puzzles like a maze to find your way through and so on. Watching my son quickly pick up how to navigate the maze by pointing the cursor in different directions was incredible.

  • Yooka-Laylee ToyBox shows that Yooka-Laylee should have no problems coming to Linux, plus new trailer

    Remember, we've seen Krome talk about the possibility of a Linux version of Ty and about 2 years ago Sonic Adventure got a Linux sub folder, so perhaps we might see more interest from them.

  • Spacewars: Interstellar Empires, a turn-based tactical strategy MMO is coming to Linux this December

    Need a new MMO in your life? Spacewars: Interstellar Empires is a turn-based tactical strategy MMO that will go into Early Access in December. Linux supported included as standard.

  • Slime Rancher is another Linux game you should let your kids try if you haven't already

    Along with trying my son out with Putt-Putt, another one I tried to great success is Slime Rancher and it's awesome.

    Disclosure: Key provided by developer for Steam, GOG also provided me with a key to their version.

    Note: Slime Rancher is currently in Early Access, but it's very playable.

Linux 4.8.14

Turns out I'm going to be on a very long flight early tomorrow morning, so I figured it would be good to get this kernel out now, instead of delaying it by an extra day. So, I'm announcing the release of the 4.8.14 kernel. All users of the 4.8 kernel series must upgrade.

An Everyday Linux User Review Of Zorin 12

This version of Zorin is a great step forward. It has a renewed sense of purpose and stands out in its own right as a decent Linux distribution. I think Zorin should follow Mint's lead and stick with aligning itself to the Ubuntu LTS release. This gives the developers more time to push it along at their own pace. All in all a decent alternative to Linux Mint and Ubuntu. Read more
