  • Some thoughts on 'imprint-X', the button pushing puzzle game that had day-1 Linux support

    imprint-X [Steam, Official Site] is a rather different puzzle game to what I’m used to. Your one and only mechanic is to push buttons and that’s really it. It’s really weird, so here’s some thoughts on it.

    Everything about the game from top to bottom is completely weird. Nothing I’m doing ever really makes all that much sense, but there’s something captivating about it. Have you ever played one of those games and you’ve thought to yourself “I should really stop now”, but something keeps you going. imprint-X is most certainly one of those.

  • A guide to crowdfunding games and the risks involved, the Linux edition

    I was asked by a Patreon supporter to note down some thoughts on what to look for when you’re thinking about pledging to a crowdfunding campaign.

    Note: These are my personal thoughts on the matter, so yours may differ. It’s okay not to agree with me on this.

    First of all, to make it clear: I am not against crowdfunding at all. I think it’s a brilliant idea that has allowed some truly fantastic games to be made. The problem is that a few bad apples (hello Stainless Games) have spoiled things for a lot of Linux gamers.

  • New Minecraft launcher comes to Linux, Tilt Brush Toolkit, and more open gaming news

    Gaming on Linux contributor Cheeseness, who attended linux.conf.au, talked about porting games to Linux in this video.

Recent open source hardware trends, from SBCs to servers

At ELC Europe, Intel MinnowBoard SBC evangelist John Hawley surveyed open hardware trends, and their impact on OS-enabled device and system development. When you mention open source hardware, people typically think about community-backed hacker boards. However, the open hardware movement is growing on many fronts, including medical devices, rocketry and satellites, 3D printers, cameras, VR gear, and even laptops and servers. At the Embedded Linux Conference Europe in October, John “Warthog9” Hawley, Intel’s evangelist for the MinnowBoard SBC, surveyed the key open hardware trends he saw in 2016. The full video, “Survey of Open Hardware 2016,” can be seen below. Read more Also in: Open Source Hardware: From SBCs to Servers

Recreating the PCLinuxOS Full Monty with KDE Plasma Activities

When I recently wrote about the new PCLinuxOS release, I was a bit disappointed to find that the Full Monty version had been laid to rest. I'm sure there were a lot of good reasons for this decision, and I have no quarrel with it. But it still made me a bit sad, because I have always kept the Full Monty on at least one of my systems (it is currently on my Acer All-In-One desktop), and I often showed it to people who were curious about Linux, as an example of its breadth, depth and flexibility. So I decided that it might be a useful exercise for me to try to create the equivalent of the Full Monty desktop starting from the latest PCLinuxOS KDE5 distribution. There are two major features which distinguish the Full Monty desktop - it had six virtual desktops, each of which was dedicated to a specific use, and it had lots and lots and lots of packages installed. The desktops looked like this: Read more
