Virtual Programming still in the game
m2mg2 commented on 6 December 2018 at 3:44 pm UTC

Virtual programming added two new games under In Development section. After finally releasing MXGP3 they have added A Hat in Time and Gravel to their In Development section. There have been some complaints about the performance of MXGP3, which as far as know uses OpenGL. I think for them to continue succeeding with higher end games they need to shift to Vulkan. Since they've now released a couple of Nintendo Switch games, which as I understand uses Vulkan, they should have the Vulkan talent. Personally I'm quite happy that Virtual Programming have reappeared as Feral seems to be the only other porter producing much for Linux (SteamPlay aside).

Nintendo Switch supports Vulkan, but also OpenGL 4.5 and their own NVN.

Gravel is good news. Hope vulkan yeah as the MXGP3 runs much much better with steamplay

Wow, great news! I'm really excited about The Hat In Time.

I already have the game, I got it in a humble bundle, so I guess I'll have to buy the game OST once the game releases, to show support for the Linux version. The game has some issues via SteamPlay, so I guess I'll wait for the Linux version to be complete.

Gravel seems really nice too, we don't have enough racing games. I'll probably get it too.

MXGP3 is on my wishlist as well, I'm waiting for the game to on a nice sale.

I was unaware the Switch supported OpenGL. So maybe Virtual Programming doesn't have Vulkan talent.
