Games: OBS Studio, Arcane Fortune, American Truck Simulator - Colorado and More

  • OBS Studio adds in better noise suppression thanks to RNNoise in the 26.0 release out now

    Free and open source video recording and live streaming software OBS Studio version 26.0 is out now. Pretty much all you need to get going with video content, OBS Studio being cross-platform and open source opened up a lot of options for Linux users when it arrived a few years ago. It's been great to see it flourish.

  • PC Gaming Setups for Windows and Linux

    What is the perfect setup for PC Gaming on the software side? Windows? Linux? or Both? Let's explore all the possibilities.

  • Grand strategy empire builder 'Arcane Fortune' has a new release and it went open source

    Arcane Fortune is a game we briefly highlighted at the start of August as one that is inspired by the likes of Civilization, SimCity and Dwarf Fortress and it's getting bigger again. Quite an interesting experience already, with a lot of features and gameplay already there. You can even play it directly in your terminal - if you wish. However, it does also have a "proper" version that uses SDL2 with mouse support. With a new release that went up on September 27, not only has it pulled in new features, it's also now properly open source. The original release was under a creative commons license but now they've moved the code over to the AGPL.

  • Get an early look at the Million Dollar Highway in American Truck Simulator - Colorado

    SCS Software will be launching the American Truck Simulator - Colorado DLC at some point and while work goes on they've released a new teaser. Here's one for you truckers, as Colorado has what some say is one of the most beautiful roads in America with the 'Million Dollar Highway' and it's going to be featured in the DLC. A pretty long stretch of road that runs from Bernalillo, New Mexico to Montrose, Colorado in the western United States. Sounds like the perfect place to go for a drive.

  • Episodic horror novel Scarlet Hollow sees a free first episode, Kickstarter soon for more

    Black Tabby Games recently released the first episode of Scarlet Hollow, a horror visual novel and choice-driven adventure game set in the mountains of Appalachia. After the initial release, they put up a Linux version too! It's made by the award-winning graphic novelist Abby Howard whose previously works include the comics of 2013: The Last Halloween, Junior Scientist Power Hour and The Last Halloween - all of which had very successful Kickstarter campaigns. Scarlet Hollow will have hand-drawn backgrounds mixed with animated sprites together with a "complex relationship system to bring to life an immersive world of charming (and terrifying) characters".

  • Great news for Transport Fever 2 fans as Vulkan support is coming

    Transport Fever 2 is a much loved transport sim released with same-day Linux support in December 2019, and it's only going to keep getting better. Gathering over seven thousand user reviews it has a Very Positive rating on Steam, so it's clear that this second edition from Urban Games and Good Shepherd Entertainment has hit the mark. It has a lot of features, quite a lot of content and graphically it looks pretty good too. However, it has just like the first game suffered some performance problems. They're aware, they've done a few updates to fix parts but more is needed. What's exciting here is that they announced in a post about upcoming macOS support that Linux and Windows will be getting an upgrade with Vulkan!

  • A bit like Stardew in space, One Lonely Outpost is fully funded and on the way to Linux

    Space, sci-fi and farming - what more could you want? One Lonely Outpost is like Stardew Valley for fans who want something a little bit more out there. The Kickstarter campaign which is now over ended on $123,195 pledged so there's clearly a lot of interest and that was way more than their $80,000 initial goal. Linux support is confirmed, and is listed very clearly for it too.

Ubuntu Replaces Its ‘Disintegrating Installer’ Icon with Something Simpler

Breaking news, right? Hardly. But this icon switch does rectify an issue that I publicly opined on before the release of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. Back in March Ubuntu’s community-led design team decided to swap its discernible Ubiquity installer icon (below left) for what I described at the time as: “Ubuntu being sucked up a hoover”...
