How to get gaming on Linux

Gaming

Gaming on Linux has never been better. With over 1,500 games available on Steam alone that support Ubuntu (officially 12.04 LTS and many other distros, unofficially), the breadth of games that you can get on Linux is astonishing: from casual card games and puzzles for whiling away a few hours, to indie games that might be low on budget but are high on inventiveness, and even big budget 'AAA' games are now available.

5 of the most popular Linux gaming distros

Games are also beginning to run better than ever on Linux distros now that many game engines used by some of the biggest names in the gaming industry – such as the powerful CryEngine – have native Linux support.

Gamers switching from the more demanding Windows 10 OS to Linux can also see performance increases, as their system won't have to devote as much of its resources to background processes and instead concentrate on delivering the best gaming experience possible.

  • Heroes of Loot 2 dungeon crawler released in Early Access with Linux support

    Heroes of Loot 2 from Orangepixel has released today in Steam's Early Access section. I wasn't a fan of the original, but it looks like the developer may have been able to hook my interest this time around.

  • Blueprint Tycoon has left Early Access, a clever and weird simulation game that supports Linux & SteamOS

    I love Tycoon styled games and Blueprint Tycoon is a weird entry. I mean that in a nice way, as it's great to see some innovation.

    I have yet to play it myself, so this is more of an announcement post in case you haven't seen it before. It's highly rated so far which means it's going on my wishlist to check out sometime.

  • Rocket Fist arena battle game released with Linux & SteamOS support

    Rocket Fist is an indie arena battle game that has just released on Linux, I took a lot thanks to the developer sending in keys.

    I have to say, I enjoyed this game far more than I thought I would. There's something satisfying about being a little robot firing fists around and bumping into other robots.

    Bouncing your fists off walls and have it smash into multiple enemy robots at once is really quite fun. It's an ingenious game and I can imagine it being hilarious at parties on a Steam Machine.

NVIDIA vs. AMD OpenGL & Vulkan Benchmarks With Valve's Dota 2

Yesterday marked the public availability of Dota 2 with a Vulkan renderer after Valve had been showing it off for months. This is the second commercial Linux game (after The Talos Principle) to sport a Vulkan renderer and thus we were quite excited to see how this Dota 2 Vulkan DLC is performing for both NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards. Here are our initial Dota 2 benchmarks with Vulkan as well as OpenGL for reference when using the latest Linux graphics drivers on Ubuntu. Read more

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

Blockchain technology offers many different benefits to enterprise developers — but there’s no cross-industry open standard for how to develop it. That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way. He founded the Apache Software Foundation, was previously on the board of the Mozilla Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and managed tech VC firm Mithril Capital Management. Read more
