Trine 2 New Co-op Trailer

Just got around to watching it and holy crap, it looks awesome.

By MaximB, 19 August 2011 at 3:08 pm UTC

WOW, can't wait for this game !
It's a sure buy for me (if they won't be too greedy ;)).

Be sure to let us know when this one is released, please.

By Hamish, 19 August 2011 at 2:57 am UTC

Jesus Christ! What the hell kind of rock was this thing hiding under for so long for all of us not to have heard about it before?! :eek:

Still, where does it mention that it will work on Linux? And what engine is it using? Questions, questions... :)

Edit: Now this makes sense, they only announced all the platforms on August 12:
Following a chilling gameplay video, Senscape is now introducing the first batch of official screenshots from Asylum in all their high-definition glory, culminating a week of strong updates about this hotly anticipated horror adventure which is confirmed for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and iPad.

Windys 1.5.0 Released

That is a really old development shot from the Wiki article by the way, all the way back from 2008. Not that the interface has changed much since then, but here is a shot from the orignal 1.0.0 release:

I think it was a very small attempt at a joke on the "wub".

Quote(ps, we are aware of the typo in the graphics, but it’s too expensive to fix now)

I'm confused. Which typo?
At first I thought "wub" instead of "love", but then a quick google search gave me this:


"Wub wub wub" means "wuv wuv wuv" or "love love love" or "<3 <3 <3". But since "love" and "<3" aren't as cuddly, "wub" is frequently used to display affection with more pinkish. It usually comes with plushies.
Pink Gummy bears with "I wub you" are classic examples.

I think I might be missing something in the english language. :confused:
(Yes, urban dictionary is not a great reference for that. I know. ^^)

And how expensive can it be to change "wub" to "love" in the picture or any other part of the text (assuming the creator of the picture stored a raw version with layers)?!

I'm interested if someone would give away a free copy of Minecraft after buying one :)

I'm going to try and get some of the quirks out from the new linux version in the coming week or so, please be patient! :)

Caster multiplayer on the way?
By Liam Dawe, 13 August 2011 at 9:14 am UTC

That would be me then :P, stupid overload of deathmatch jump and run shooters....

Caster multiplayer on the way?
By Hamish, 13 August 2011 at 8:33 am UTC

Quoting: "Brandon Smith, post: 2123"Linux can never have too many multiplayer games.

Well, some regarding multiplayer shooters some people might disagree. :rolleyes:

Caster multiplayer on the way?
By Brandon Smith, 12 August 2011 at 1:43 am UTC

Linux can never have too many multiplayer games. I never tried caster, but this might be the little extra something that gets me interested in it.

Caster multiplayer on the way?
By Eddward, 11 August 2011 at 10:38 pm UTC

I liked Caster. The mechanics with the high speed and jumping was cool and I like the look and sound. With the exception of certain tribes2 mods and the RPG crossfire, I haven't gotten too much into online games. It probably because most of my friends don't play video games and I just haven't enjoyed most of crowds I've found so far.

I've been worried that there would not be much more of Caster however. I got the impression that Elecorn was selling to for too little and promising too much with the all future episode being free. Seemed like he had committed to a lot of work for not much money. I would have been happy if he'd have charged $5 per-episode or charge more and just deliver a little more often. I'd suggest he change the business model but some jerk would probably raise a stink.

Also another fun part of Caster was improving your skills. It's just too easy to max out after a single episode. It is cool to be maxed out by the end of an episode, but then there's no where to go with the next episode. It might be nice if there were more ways to improve the character in each episode. Maybe adding new abilities. But that would be difficult to keep interesting.

All the same, I would be glad to see a new episode and I don't think online play would be a bad thing these days. It would be cool to see a bunch of Casters zipping around. A high speed Caster capture the flag could be very cool.

BEEP-Game Review and Gameolith
By Hamish, 13 August 2011 at 8:36 am UTC

Quoting: "Powelly1995, post: 2119"First off, i'd like to award BEEP the prestigious award of "The only game that I haven't had to go digging for dependencies and that works right off the bat".

Really? I never have had any real problems. :confused:

Edit: I also notice that Steel Storm is now on Gameolith. Good show. :D

My question: Any chance of seeing them on desura?

I think you got something mixed up - The game is called Bullet Candy, not Scoregasm(That game is still in development).

Haaf's Game Engine (HGE) comes to Linux!
By KIAaze, 7 August 2011 at 2:02 pm UTC

The icculus bugtracker mentioned some issues with multimouse support on GNU/Linux, so hopefully this will speed up the bugfixing a bit. :)
Even more reasons to pay for the HIB again. Maybe the 2 million $ mark can be passed this time. (or 400000 purchasers which would be even more significant I think)

I thought about buying a gift copy and doing the same thing on :)
Might still do it eventually.

I won't do this for the same reason I will not do the Phoronix one - I despise Twitter. :p

This is awesome. One of my friends got this bundle for me. ITS AWESOME! TWO THUMBS UP!

The Magnificent Seven (Humble Indie Bundle)
By Liam Dawe, 5 August 2011 at 7:44 pm UTC

This is a Fantastic deal and you would have to be an idiot to miss it. These bundles are increadible for the fact that they actually get games ported to Linux in the process - those games then go on to be sold in the USC and Desura (So other people can grab it when that's finished).

It's never been a better time to be a Linux Gamer.

I just hope the new Doom 3 source helps to make FPS games on Linux a bit more interesting.

Doom 3/ID Tech 4 source code release this year!
By Hamish, 4 August 2011 at 11:40 pm UTC

Keep in mind through that much of id Tech 4's features have already been implemented in DarkPlaces or XReal. When it comes to source ports it is quite interesting, even if most of the games on the engine are native already. :D

The Humble Indie Bundle #3 now 11 games
By Liam Dawe, 4 August 2011 at 9:27 am UTC

You have to have the port number on the end, as for timing out thats odd i will check server logs and see it may be down.

Edit > It was down on the 1st of August but it's been solid since then according to the logs, care to try again? You do need to copy the whole address, ip and port together it's why it's listed :)

There's someone on it now so it should be fine.

The Humble Indie Bundle #3 now 11 games
By KIAaze, 3 August 2011 at 9:58 pm UTC

Just tried and it says "you are not whitelisted on this server".
If I add the port number, i.e. enter, the connection just times out and I get some socket read error.

P.S.: It's a trap! Just like the free-to-play WoW. Game developers are trying to trap us in their games! xD
I don't think I should spend more time on minecraft. It runs and that's it. :P
