Here's your quick tip of the day! Until May 9, you can grab a free permanent copy of Nubarron: The adventure of an unlucky gnome on Steam. The developer, Nastycloud, originally tried crowdfunding it on Kickstarter and it wasn't successful. That was back in 2014 and then surprise - it launched anyway back in early 2020 which we completely missed. Now it's free for a while!

"Guide Gnome across the dangers of this twisted fairytale world. Can you break the make the annoying cloud go away? And recover his stolen Lucky Hat? Trust your friends? Find out in this, a casual platformer set in a beautiful painted world full of weird creatures you'll have to deal with."

"FREE'S FREE!!" has long been my call to action, but it's also left me with games that, if I'm honest, I'm never going to play. This would be one of those games. I'm never going to play this. If I try, I'll die, over and over again ... and again (and again) ad absurdum. It looks like a good little game, just ... for other people.

Yes.
I find it always hard to resist, though. :D

The game is very cute, but also incredibly frustrating. I've let it down after two hours... (If it were advertised as frustrating like Cuphead or Super Meat Boy are it would make me laugh but it is not the case)

Anyone had problems with the sound on this one? I don't have any sound on Linux Mint 19.2 Tina.

Edit: It seems like they forget to add a folder.
To fix the sound go to the install location and then
 
nubarron_Data/StreamingAssets/Audio/GeneratedSoundBanks/

Create a symlink to the Windows folder named "Linux" (or copy the folder)
Thanks to this Thread

Thanks for the warning, I'll give it a pass then!

True, but on the other hand, over the last three or four years it's meant I've played a lot of games I might otherwise never have given a second thought to.
