  • Rocket League Launches on Linux This Week

    Oh boy, have you been patiently waiting for it — and now it’s finally coming. Yes, Rocket League for Linux will launch in beta on September 8. Developer’s Psyonix say they will only support SteamOS “officially”, though the game should be able to run on any modern Linux distro that Steam does, including Ubuntu.

  • Rocket League coming to OS X and Linux this week

    Rocket League, the race car-football (soccer) game fusion, will receive a new update on Thursday, September 8th. One of the biggest components of the update is the included OS X and SteamOS (including Linux distributions) support. The update also comes with a new Rumble mode, updates to classic Rocket Trails, and other changes.

  • Unigine-Powered Sci-Fi MMORPG Turn

    Earlier this year we heard of a science fiction MMORPG game making use of Unigine 2 after switching from Unreal Engine 4.

  • Atom Zombie Smasher has been updated, Linux version is now on Steam

    Atom Zombie Smasher the rather cool indie game from a while ago has finally been updated and it has a Linux version on Steam.

  • Manage your own nightclub in 'Party Hard Tycoon', an upcoming strategy spin-off of 'Party Hard'

    Party Hard Tycoon was announced a few days ago and right now the developers are inviting people to join the Alpha, which will start soon. Because the Linux icon isn't listed in the Steam store page, I decided to ask them via e-mail to see if the Alpha also includes Linux gamers (considering the first game was ported, it should be coherent that this one too, after all). Although regarding the Alpha their answer was negative, it's good to know that the game indeed will have a Linux version just like its predecessor...

  • Everyone is invisible in 'Invisigun Heroes' a multiplayer, single-screen stealth battle arena

    Invisigun Heroes sounds like a pretty funny idea, everyone is invisible, but you still have to find a way to battle them. It's not as crazy as it sounds, as it seems you appear briefly if you use a weapon. Very cleverly done, with really nice graphics.

  • Mother Russia Bleeds released on Linux, go beat 'em up, some thoughts included

    First thing: If you have more than one monitor, it may start on the wrong one. Putting it in a window, dragging it over and setting it back to full-screen works fine though.

    I highly suggested using a gamepad for this, as the keyboard controls are quite bad. I accidentally tried changing the "Select" keybind which was set as left-ALT, but it wouldn't let me re-use that key. The keybindings section of the options doesn't actually detect all the keys, which is annoying.

  • ‘Rocket League Rumble,’ complete with Mac/Linux support, lands this month

    Last month Psyonix announced the next Rocket League update, and now we have more information, including a release date.

    Set to drop on September 8, Rocket League Rumble will be the same gameplay that fans have grown to love, but with a ton more power-ups.

  • In-Depth with the Rumble Update
  • OpenMW 0.40.0 Released!

    The OpenMW team is proud to announce the release of version 0.40.0! Grab it from our Downloads Page for all operating systems. This release brings some small new features, but mainly bug fixes and improvements. We’re winding down on implementable features, these are exciting times for OpenMW, even if releases have a little less user-visible changes. The game is basically fully playable, and future releases will bring mostly more fixes and optimizations.

  • Audio Capturing Support Landed This Week In SDL2
  • GOG withdraw their statement about The Witcher 3 never planned for Linux, they have no idea

    Maybe it will one day, maybe it won't. We again are back to officially not knowing what's going on at all.

  • Near Death Review

    The Linux version runs fantastic. It picked up my Xbox controller with no hiccups and it stayed well above sixty frames-per-second for the most part. In fact, in the game’s first patch there’s a Tux object hidden in one of the rooms that you can only find while playing the Linux version (spoiler: it’s in one of the rooms in Science). There’s not much that you can do with it other than pick it up and drop it, but it’s pretty cool we got some love there. Since the game was built with Unity I was expecting to get a fairly moderate amount of crashes — due to Unity not running so well with GNU/Linux — but I actually only got two crashes after trying to resume the game from a game over, and then after that it suddenly stopped. Never gone through a crash since. Props to the guys at Orthogonal!

GNOME Shell vs. KDE Plasma Graphics Tests On Wayland vs. X.Org Server

A premium member this week had requested some benchmarks of openSUSE Tumbleweed when looking at the performance of KDE Plasma vs. GNOME Shell in some open-source graphics/gaming tests while also looking at the Wayland vs. X.Org Server performance. With KDE Plasma 5.12 that openSUSE Tumbleweed has picked up, there is much better Wayland session support compared to previous releases. While KDE developers aren't yet ready to declare their Wayland session the default, in my experience so far it's been working out very well but still routinely will find application crashes in Kate and the like when testing under the KWin's Wayland compositor.
