Bodhi 4.0.0 Alpha Release
Not only is our first 4.0.0 alpha release here – but it is here relatively on schedule. If all goes according to plan we will have something stamped as stable before September hits. I would just like to be clear that this is far from a polished / finished product. I would encourage anyone wanting to write a review to wait to do so until our stable release. If you are not someone who is interested in helping find issues please wait as well.
Overlord, Overlord: Raising Hell and Overlord II are all now available on Steam for Linux. Overlord II is also a brand new port today!
Note: You may have issues if you previously purchased them from bundles and other random stores. VP has reached out to Codemasters to add Linux to them. If you're only buying it now, you will be fine.
Also, for the amount of complaints Mr Sweeney has, maybe it's time for him to be productive about it and start moving his company towards an open platform. Anyone know an open platform? Lin-something? Oh yes, Linux, that's it. Linux gives you SteamOS too remember now.
Only Unreal Tournament (the new one) looks like it will have Epic's support and possibly not even officially. The Linux version has been seriously lagging behind the Windows version, repeatedly breaking with major graphical issues and it still has no launcher on Linux. It may still be early, but they don't seem like they're really putting any effort into it.
Death Road to Canada is a brand new Linux game that released on Steam recently and a GOL user was kind enough to send me a copy to take a look. It's a randomly generated road trip with Zombies with lots of encounters and annoying people to find.
I've been having more fun with this than I probably should have. Exploring random abandoned "Y'all marts", dismembering zombies and watching their brains and other organs fly out is grim and hilarious. What's even more grim is walking over those organs then squishes them!
HaxeFlixel, a free and open source cross-platform game framework that was used in the creation of Defender's Quest is needing a bit of funding on IndieGoGo.
They need only $3,000 (even more helps obviously), as it's for a full time developer to work on it for a year. The core HaxeFlixel contributors are providing $3,000 themselves, so crowdfunding is just to top him up essentially.
Ubuntu Touch OTA-12 Launches Today with Biometric Authentication for Meizu PRO 5
Today, July 27, 2016, Canonical will unveil the 12th Over-the-Air (OTA) software update for its Ubuntu mobile operating system that runs on supported Ubuntu Phone and Ubuntu Tablet devices.
Elio Qoshi is the person behind ura, a fascinating design studio dedicated to improving design in free and open source projects. As part of that mission, ura works with projects of all budgets. When we talk about open source, we’re usually talking code first and then—maybe—documentation second. Design is often an after-thought. But as designers like Elio get involved in open source culture, that order could eventually change.
