  • Overlord, Overlord: Raising Hell and Overlord II (new port!) released on Steam for Linux

    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.

  • Epic Games founder thinks Microsoft will essentially break Steam in later versions of Windows 10

    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.

  • The Talos Principle updated with more Vulkan stability and performance

    Croteam have continued developing their Vulkan backend for The Talos Principle and have pushed the last beta to stable and released another beta with more Vulkan work.

  • Death Road to Canada released on Steam with Linux support, some thoughts

    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!

  • Mojang working on new launcher for Minecraft, Linux might not see support [Ed: Microsoft loves Linux again. After killing GNU/Linux client for Skype now it does this... Microsoft loves Linux so much that not only does it not port software to GNU/Linux but it also buys cross-platform software, removes ports. I can feel the ‘love’.]

    For those still playing Minecraft, you may know that Mojang is working on a new launcher that doesn't use Java (hooray!), but it might not run on Linux (boo!).

  • HaxeFlixel, a free and open source cross-platform game framework needs funds on IndieGoGo

    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.

  • Stardew Valley is now in beta for Linux

    The Stardew Valley developer tweeted out a password for a beta, but after discussing it with them on their forum I was able to show them that we can't actually access it yet.

    While what I was telling them may not have been entirely correct (SteamDB is confusing), the main point I made was correct. Normal keys are not able to access the beta yet, but beta/developer keys can, as it's not currently set for Linux/Mac as a platform for us.

  • Physics-based 3D puzzler Human: Fall Flat released on Steam for Linux

    Human: Fall Flat is an open-ended physics puzzler with an optional local co-op mode, developed by No Brakes Games, and available now on Steam for Linux.

  • 7 Mages brings a touch more of traditional dungeon crawling to Linux

    Controlling a party of adventurers, exploring dungeons and fighting weird magical creatures is an RPG tradition as old as the genre. Expect all that and more in this modern iteration of the classical dungeon crawler.

  • Cheese Talks: Porting Games to Linux & Day of the Tentacle

    In addition to my own thoughts, the article includes insights from a number of other Linux game porters including Leszek Godlewski (Painkiller Hell & Damnation, Deadfall Adventures), Ryan "icculus" Gordon (StarBreak, Left 4 Dead 2, Unreal Tournament 2004, Another World, Cogs, Goat Simulator), David Gow (Keen Dreams, Multiwinia), Ethan Lee (Salt & Sanctuary, Hiden in Plain Sight, HackNet, Waveform, Dust: An Elysian Tail) and Aaron Melcher (Outland, La-Mulana, Hyper Light Drifter, Darkest Dungeon). Betweem them, they offer a great range of attitudes and approaches that support and provide counterpoint to my own experiences.

  • Vendors and Customers Gettin' Open Sourcey With It
    Basically, “open source enablement" seems to be about teaching customers how to embrace open source principles, both in terms of internal processes as well as external communities and ecosystems. As I've worked with many engineering and product teams over the years, I've seen many open source initiatives fail to reach their potential because of ingrained cultural obstacles that usually manifest in the form of corporate inertia that blocks forward progress.

  • Announcing the open source release of MORI, from Chalkbeat
    In 2014, Chalkbeat developed and started using a WordPress plugin for tracking impact. We called it MORI — Measures of Our Reporting’s Influence. As we wrote then, MORI grew out of one of our key beliefs: Journalists can make a difference, but the ability to measure the difference we make can multiply our impact over time. If we can document how, why, when, and where we made a difference, we are more likely to repeat our success. The quantitative data we track in MORI lets us see the big picture of how our work affects the world, beyond raw readership analytics; the qualitative narrative we record helps us tell the story. Our editorial teams can put important impacts in the hands of our fundraising team and others to turn around and share with the broader education community.
  • ODL: Open Source Hastens Software Usability
    Open Daylight Summit -- Open source is connecting users and developers more intimately, and that's a good thing, OpenDaylight Executive Director Neela Jacques said here today. In kicking off the OpenDaylight Summit, Jacques said the ability of users and developers to work side-by-side is evolving, and helping drive the faster pace at which open source can bring solutions to the industry. "Users can sit next to the developers of the code they use, and the interaction doesn't go one way," he said. "The real difference is the way users interact with developers. This is why we are able to get production-grade solutions so much faster than you ever would in proprietary world."
