  • Wine-Staging 3.12 Released With 990 Patches Atop Upstream Wine

    One day past the release of upstream Wine 3.12, the downstream Wine-Staging 3.12 is now available that continues incorporating hundreds of experimental/testing patches atop these bi-weekly Wine releases.

  • The rather engrossing roguelike 'Caves of Qud' is now on GOG & itch

    For those who love your traditional roguelikes, you might want to check out Caves of Qud which is now available on GOG and itch.io.

    Along with the release on new stores, they just did a big update to the game too which includes generated villages spread throughout the game, each with its own faction, history and so on. A dynamic quest system to go along with that, giving you unique quests for each! Also, you have the option of choosing your starting location now which includes some of the new villages.

  • Albion Online 'Merlyn' update to release on July 31st with Faction Warfare

    Faction Warfare is coming to Albion Online on July 31st with the next major update named Merlyn and it does sound quite promising.

  • The GOG weekly sale has some rather nice Linux games for cheap
  • The beta of the new and improved itch app is out for testing

    Game store itch.io have a revamped desktop client coming and a beta is now available for users to test and report back.

    The open source itch app was already pretty damn slick, I'm quite a fan of how easy it is to use. However, the team at itch have been working away for quite some time to improve it.

  • Play It Now - Transistor

    Oddly enough, the game allows you to cut some of the exposition short, but I heartily recommend allowing the game to play out in full - there are some great scenes that I missed first time around in Transistor because I was in a hurry to get to the next fight!
