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.

The Games
Pixel Piracy
UnEpic
Super Splatters

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!
Outlast
Torchlight II
La-Mulana

More games coming soon!

Looks like Humble are back on form this time! Amazing bundle!

Check out Humble Indie Bundle 14 here.

Outlast Performance
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!

Torchlight II
We already did a port report on that here.

UnEpic
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. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Quoting: abelthorne
Quoting: IvancilloHas anyone a Phenom or Phenom II on his rig?
I can't run Shadow Warrior. It prompts "Illegal instruction" at the command line.
The issue has been resolved. It now runs on my Athlon X3 and from the Steam forums it seems that it works too for a guy with a Phenom II.

Perfs with Mesa/RadeonSi are bad, I've yet to test the game with Catalyst (but I'd like to avoid this).

Care to elaborate a bit when it comes to Mesa/RadeonSi?

Regardless, seeing as I do have a Phenom II I made the right decision when it comes to waiting on downloading it.

Hello Hamish.

Since past Saturday there's a new patched version of Shadow Warrior avaliable at Humble Bundle.

Now it works with Phenom II.
Hamish 6 Apr, 2015
Yeah, I know. What I was referring to was not downloading the binary right away when it was released on Tuesday.
Hamish 6 Apr, 2015
Someone has posted some videos of Shadow Warrior (and Outlast) running on RadeonSi:

It seems to run okay. I should really just grab the binary and test it out on R600g myself though.

I picked up the bundle and I already had Torchlight II. If someone would like the gift link for it please let me know in a PM and I'll get it out to ya!
Hamish 9 Apr, 2015
So I have now installed Shadow Warrior on two machines using R600g. The frame rate can vary quite a bit, and it does slow down in some places to such an extent that gameplay can become a bit of a slog, but it is certainly playable.

This is on both a Radeon HD 6870 (Arch Linux) and a Radeon HD 5750 (Fedora 21).

I have to spare a Steamkey for "Pixel Piracy" and a Steamkey for "Torchlight II". If someone is seriously interessted please let me know via PM and i'll send them to you.

But please don't get mad at me if i don't answer your request. In that case the keys are already taken.
