  • Philosophical and mystical horror 'Fibrillation HD' is now on Linux

    Originally released for Windows back in April last year, Linux support officially arrived yesterday. It turns out, a Linux version was requested by a GOL reader way back in October last year. The developer said at that point "Not in the near future, unfortunately." and then suddenly it's here. Always nice to see the unexpected.

  • Xenosis: Alien Infection a retro-inspired, top-down sci-fi adventure is now live on Fig

    Xenosis: Alien Infection [Official Site] is a top-down sci-fi adventure with horror and survival elements that's really coming together nicely. It will fully support Linux and it's now live on Fig.

    I've been speaking with the developer on and off over the last couple months, as they also gave me access to an early build of the game. I do have to say I'm massively impressed by it already! It oozes an incredible atmosphere out of every hole, already performs well and the developer has been quick to fix issues I notified them about. In terms of issues, there's really not many.

  • Vehicles in survival game Project Zomboid are almost ready for the stable build

    The Indie Stone are a few steps closer to getting vehicles into the stable build of survival game Project Zomboid [Official Site], which should make the game pretty damn interesting.

  • Write and Play Interactive Fiction with Open Source Software

    Interactive fiction is a form of computer game which shares many traits with fiction in book form, role-playing games and puzzle-solving. It’s one of the oldest forms of computer games.

    Interactive fiction is a somewhat nebulous phrase. It can refer to text adventures where the player uses text input to control the game, and the game state is relayed with text output. They are known as text adventures. Crowther & Woods invented this form of games in the 1960s when they designed the famous Colossal Cave Adventure, which was available on many mainframe computer systems. They were massively popular when computers were limited to displaying text. Mobile phones offered a resurgence to the genre, given they consume little resources.

KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released

KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released We today provide a stabilization and bugfix release with version 5.2.2 and 5.2.3. 5.2.2 was tagged 6 weeks ago, but we never managed to release it because we did not have the patience to fix the Windows installers in time due to a broken CI. Windows installers are provided for 5.2.3 again. We'll only provide source tarballs for 5.2.2 and we encourage everyone to just skip this release and use 5.2.3 which contains a few more bug fixes. This is a bugfix-only release, which introduces no new features and as such is a safe and recommended update for everyone currently using KDevelop 5.2.1.
