Factorio 0.16 is out with artillery, cliffs, more high-res graphics and more

stretch611Also, for those that are interested, the devs have not participated in and have no plans to discount factorio during any sales. There is no reason to wait for a sale, or you will be disappointed.

Thanks for the info, removed it from my wishlist. 20euro is a bit too much for me for such poorly looking game (also I dislike they stance on sales, so I am not supporting it).
It's an unfinished game. People buying it are supporting them, I applaud their no sale approach right now so people who support them earlier arent paying more than those later.

As for the way it looks, i think its great. If you turn your nose up in this way, youre likely missing out on a lot of good games.

How do I get the key WITHOUT linking my steam account to Humble Bundle. I never claim their free giveaways because of this, I don't want my steam account linked to IGN properties. please help
If they ask you to, then it's the only way.

Just to be clear, you need to opt-in to the beta on Steam to access 0.16.x

immortelI'm really surprised by this article. I'm used to a positive Liam.
I have to be realistic, I refuse to sugar coat and talk about everything as if it's the best thing since sliced bread. Some things need to be talked about rather frankly. This may surprise or upset some, but I do consider myself to be a realist, not a die-hard zealot of everything that comes with Linux.

Let's just see what happens

lemoncitronShould be noted that if not redeemed my December 30th your key will vanish from Humble:
"The redemption deadline is December 30th, 2017 at 10:00 AM Pacific. You have 15 days left!

Immediately after 10AM Pacific on December 30th, the Steam key will magically vanish as if it were just a figment of your imagination, leaving this cryptic message behind in its wake."
I assume you only see that if you redeem it? Doesn't show that for me on the store page.

mirvI like how on their press page is a quote from GOL: "Hard not to get excited about the possibilities".
They just wanted to make it easier not to get excited.

Seriously though, this kind of "pause" is most definitely not a good sign, especially with only a hand-wavy reason given. recognised? Oh my. They might regret linking to us a bit now though...

Mohandevir"It will be very surprising if it ever appears again."

You have obviously much more experience about this kind of stuff than I do, but I'm curious to know why you think we will never hear about it again?
It has happened before with plenty of other devices, not necessarily Linux-specific though. I've seen very similar things happen over and over again.

LakortaThe title is slightly misleading. It's the launch countdown that was paused, not the project itself.
Correct, I've adjusted the title to ensure it's clear. Wasn't my intention to mislead of course

For fans of retro racing games, Super Night Riders is like OutRun & Hang-On
11 December 2017 at 3:34 pm UTC

rustybroomhandleAhem, OutRun with a motorbike had a name, it was called Hang-On
Well then, there you go. I knew it was more familiar to something else, but I just couldn't remember it

Haque, a rather great glitch fantasy roguelike has released with Linux support, also something about Penguins

muntdefemsI wholeheartedly endorse this game.

QuoteI might like this developer a lot.

He is a great guy alright.
I was glad to see it come out, as soon as I saw it I reached out for a key. Really pleased with it, shall be playing more of it on my time off!

TetsI'll wait. The "system requirements" section on the store page still have "Additional Notes: You must install GLIB 2.28 in order to run JavaFX Media."
That was likely a copy and paste fail, I haven't had to do anything on Ubuntu 17.10.
