  • Aquiris Game Studio ending support for their online FPS Ballistic Overkill

    Ballistic Overkill, an easy pick up and play first-person shooter from Aquiris Game Studio is now essentially being killed off.

    In an announcement on Steam, the team noted that "supporting a game like this with frequent updates is no easy task, nor is it something cheap, especially for an independent studio like us" and they're certainly not wrong about that. Keeping a multiplayer game going, with constant updates to keep people interested and fighting against cheaters certainly isn't easy for a smaller team.

  • Roadwarden, an upcoming illustrated text-based exploration fantasy RPG with a Linux demo

    Roadwarden certainly grabs your attention! A game that blends together features from a ton of different genres to create a mix of an RPG, interactive fiction, adventure, exploration and a lot more. It doesn't really fit into any clear genre.

    Somehow, I completely missed it being announced with a demo a good few months ago. Thankfully, I did notice it popping up on Steam just recently and they have a new announcement trailer:

  • Gloomy and surreal adventure game Mosaic from Krillbite Studio is out now

    Krillbite Studio, developer of the creepy Among the Sleep have released Mosaic, a dark and surreal adventure game about life in a cold overpopulated and ever-expanding city. Note: Key provided to us by GOG.com.

    I was a big fan of Among the Sleep, the story telling and the atmosphere they made with it was brilliant and to this day the ending still makes me think. With Mosaic, they've done quite the opposite in terms of the story. Life is hard, it can often be quite dull and Mosaic is showing it all off with a dystopian near-future setting. This is a game about adult life, how it's often monotonous as we go through it just trying to survive. Things get a little weird though, as you expected it to with such a game.

Use this Twitter client for Linux to tweet from the terminal

Last year, I brought you 19 days of new (to you) productivity tools for 2019. This year, I'm taking a different approach: building an environment that will allow you to be more productive in the new year, using tools you may or may not already be using. I love social networking and microblogging. It's quick, it's easy, and I can share my thoughts with the world really quickly. The drawback is, of course, that almost all the desktop options for non-Windows users are wrappers around the website. Twitter has a lot of clients, but what I really want is something lightweight, easy to use, and most importantly, attractive. Read more

MarsCat is a Bionic Cat Powered by Raspberry Pi 3 (Crowdfunding)

Elephant Robotics MarsCat is a robotic cat that tries to mimic the behavior of actual cats through artificial intelligence. It can have a life of its own roaming the house, and you can also interact with it as it will play with toys/teasers through its camera, and you can send voice command to ask it to walk, run, look at you, be quiet. etc… but the trick is that it may not always obey like a real cat, and its personality will evolve depending on how you interact with it. Beside being a bionic pet, MarsCat can also be used to teach/learn robotics as the company will release an open-source SDK allowing you to change the Python code running on the Raspberry Pi 3 board powering the cat, and access API’s to control the camera, microphone, touch sensors, as well as the 16 servos connected to a Microchip ATMega2560 MCU via two servo boards. Visual programming for the robot will be made possible through Scratch 3.0 program. Read more
