Virtual Programming seem to be busy once again which is good news, turning up on their website recently was both A Hat in Time and Gravel.
Curiously though, this is the second time A Hat in Time has appeared on their website to show they're porting it to Linux. Back in August of 2017, A Hat in Time appeared on Virtual Programming's website (along with MXGP3 which recently released) but the actual developer of the game had never heard of VP and it was then quickly removed. Now it's back again…confusing but good for us to get more games. I'm going to assume it was something announced far too early.
The other is Gravel, an off-road racer which does look quite good. Not surprising to see VP working on a Linux port, since Gravel is made by Milestone who also made MXGP3, so it looks like they're continuing to partner up for more ports. This also isn't overly surprising, as we noted back in October we saw hints of it happening.
Both games are in "beta" status according to their website, not that it means anything to us since VP don't put out beta versions to the public.
Personally, I'm really happy to see Virtual Programming continue porting games to Linux, as the more companies we have specialising in Linux gaming the better. Their last port with MXGP3 didn't have great performance (as noted), so hopefully these next two ports will be more playable—fingers crossed, as Gravel is a racer I'm keen to try out.
Update 07/12/18: For the second time, VP have removed A Hat in Time from their website. We've emailed them to find out what's going on.
