Keeping your games together from different services and stores can be a breeze with the likes of Lutris, a free and open source game launcher and manager. Regular readers will know it well, and we covered the recent Release Candidate build last week, with the good news being it stable enough for everyone now and so it has been released.
A quick reminder of the 0.5.8 highlights from our last article:
- Much improved integration with the Lutris website
- Games from 3rd party services no longer depend on a Lutris website install script
- Steam games are now loaded from the Steam API
- You can download extras from GOG as part of the install process
- The overall Lutris app design has been improved
- There's a new Favourites section, so you can add titles to it for a quick and easy selection
- Lutris runners can now be written in JSON instead of Python code
- + lots more
The full change can be found here.
It's come a long way since the early builds, where it offered a really simple list interface and didn't really do a whole lot other than list your games. Now though it's practically spilling over the sides with all sorts of helpful tweaks to allow you to get the most out of your gaming on Linux. Bringing together Steam, GOG, Humble and installers from elsewhere all under one roof. There's plenty of areas Lutris still needs to improve but it's coming together.
