That makes it now a total of 10 games, I think it's one of the best bundles yet. Been enjoying Mark Of The Ninja personally and think it's EXCELLENT.

Linux users are leading the fold as usual by paying the highest, sadly though as usual as well we are also the lowest slice of the pie in terms of sales. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I also had problems with my gamepad (Logitech Dual Action) in Mark of the Ninja. For some stupid reasons, the xbox controller the game expects treats the trigger buttons as axes, while my gamepad, of course, treats them as buttons. I can't map a button to an axis with jscal, so no dice with just that.

I managed to fiddle something that mostly works together with xboxdrv (manually mapping everything) and jscal (to reorder the axes). But no matter what I try, the dpad isn't recognized.

On a positive note, I'm completely hooked on the Rocketbirds soundtrack.

Rocketbirds has appeared on Steam Linux but doesn't install data. Is it just me ? I know it's not the first game that behaves like this (with the data properly appearing a few days later) but as steamdb.info doesn't mention a problem, I thought I'd rather ask...

Has anyone else had issues with A Virus Named Tom? I installed it and I'm on a KDE Desktop. If I search for it on quicksand (e.g. enter "A v"), quicksand crashes. If I search for it in the application menu, the menu and the plasma desktop crashes. I also had this problem with Capsized...

Yep, just installed AVNT and I've got the identical problem. Kubuntu 13.04 64-bit.

I haven't tried AVNT (and besides I play games through Steam when possible) but maybe the launcher is buggy and crashes KDE? Have you tried checking the corresponding desktop file that should be in /usr/share/applications?

BTW, Rocketbirds is not functional on Steam Linux.

Quote from YoggybeerHi,


For MoTN and your problem with the gamepad (i have a 360 controller), you need to do this before to start the game:
sudo rmmod xpad
sudo xboxdrv --silent 
(Install first xboxdrv if you don't have it)

Finally tried this today and it worked like a charm (though no dice in Teleglitch). Should've played sooner, such fun

Thanks for the tip abelthorne. The offending file was in ~/.local/share/applications, specifically the Icon entry in avirusnamedtom_com-avirusnamedtom_1.desktop. Putting the Icon entry in quotes (or removing the file), should fix the problem.
