Well, I was writing up both Outlast & Shadow warrior, then I checked my twitter feed and...dayam! Outlast & Shadow warrior are both now on Linux and in the brand new Humble Indie Bundle 14, what a day!
There goes ALL my time tonight! Of course they all have DRM free builds as well, so we can all get in on the fun.
Pay $10 or more to unlock!
Shadow Warrior Special Edition - Steam currently claims it's not on Linux for me, so it hasn't reached all of their networks yet.
Pay more than the average of $5.49 to unlock!
More games coming soon!
Looks like Humble are back on form this time! Amazing bundle!
Check out Humble Indie Bundle 14 here.
Since this is a new port I decided that rather than spam out lots of articles, to keep it here.
Setting everything to Very High gives me a near solid 60FPS. Not sure if turning VSYNC off actually works, as my maximum FPS never went over 62FPS. I know VSYNC is usually 60FPS, but I just find 62 odd.
As I begin to play all that's going through my mind is "please be buggy, please don't make me play this!". Sadly, to my despair everything works really, really smoothly.
As I continue through the Asylum everything is working as expected, and the visuals really are quite good. Also, please don't make me crawl through that bloodied air vent :(.
I proceed to push a door and...nope, just nope. I jumped in my chair. Do not want.
it seems the port has some graphical glitches. We are uncertain how common they are, but so far they are not game-breaking. We will update you when we know more, or when we can force ourselves to play some more, it's bloody scary.
Shadow Warrior Performance
I downloaded the DRM free build since it isn't on Steam yet, and there are a few issues with the game.
On a dual monitor it stretches across both and positions itself in the middle, which is highly annoying. Full screen seems to lock all input, so I was unable to alt+tab. Luckily, I did manage to get it to work fully in Windowed mode!
This doesn't happen on the Steam version, I can alt+tab and fullscreen just fine.
I can't quite put my finger on what's going on with the graphics, but even on Ultra it looks nothing close to the fidelity shown on the Steam store.
A developer responded saying Linux is missing graphical features that are being worked on.
Performance is perfect though, I'm getting over 100FPS a lot!
We already did a port report on that here.
Seems to work just fine in my testing, gives me a solid 60FPS and the gameplay is very smooth.
I haven't played too much of it, just the tutorial, and everything worked as expected.
