DragonRuby Game Toolkit, a cross-platform way to make games with Ruby
20 April 2019 at 8:27 pm UTC

HazelnutI found an article that looks like the carbon copy of yours: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.vgamezone.com/2019/04/20/dragonruby-game-toolkit-a-cross-platform-way-to-make-games-with-ruby/%3Famp&ved=2ahUKEwibkN23vN_hAhXD0qQKHQWfD68QFjAEegQIBBAB&usg=AOvVaw3tLENmTXI21GsyGkOp0Cu_&ampcf=1&cshid=1555790987356

Now, I don't if you published it there or not, but I thought that I'd rather look like a fool than risk not helping gamingOnLinux out.
Their entire Linux section is basically a rip of our content. I am aware of it, not a huge amount I can do but try to get to their webhost which isn't easy when their info is hidden.

CorbenThis is how it has to start, I guess. We were playing games with wine way before Valve decided to support Linux natively. And this showed them there is interest. Then Microsoft did its store thing, and game platforms where looking for alternatives. Without wine we wouldn't have that I guess. So yeah, I think it's a good start that the Epic client is now working properly on Linux via a compatibility layer. Which may lead then to a native client sooner or later, especially as Epic is looking for Linux engineers. And I guess not only for backend stuff.

I know we prefer a proper native support, I do this as well. But being able to play now games, that are known to work well with wine+dxvk (e.g. Metro Exodus), it's at least something.

edit: will we see a community driven project like protondb for games that work with wine/dxvk from the epic store soon, or with this be listed on winehq?
Honestly, I think it's crazy how many people turn their noses up at Wine. I've said it before and I will say it again, without Wine letting me play some games on Linux in the early days I simply wouldn't be here today.

I now take what I can, where I can. If I can get a game working on Linux, officially or not and have fun with it that's what matters most. The majority really don't care about the little details, they just want things to work.

AkonadyThere's a link to the game?
The only info right now on the Linux release is the linked press release.

Linux Gaming News Punch - Episode 8

EhvisThere are a few games on Linux that resemble Diablo. Torchlight is the obvious one. Others (like Victor Vran) may have a few notable differences, but I hope Last Epoch will do its own thing as well.
Yeah but really not much else, which was more my poorly worded point

yochaigalWhen I have Steam Play enabled, it lets me install regardless of beta.
When I have Steam Play disabled, it gives me the invalid platform response.
They mentioned on Twitter after I poked them again, that it should be fixed if you didn't see already.

Pathway is an addictive mix of strategy and adventure, out now with Linux support

theghostThe game looks really interesting.

@Liam: Some negative rewievs mention a repetitive and not so deep gameplay. What's your opinion about this?
Depends. I find tons of games to be repetitive but the key factor is fun, do you find it fun? I find Pathway fun.

KonGreat game, but be warned that the native Linux version has never received the patches pushed to the Windows version.
This is already clearly noted in the article FYI.

Surviving Mars: Green Planet to introduce terraforming, releasing in Q2 this year
9 April 2019 at 7:34 pm UTC

TheRiddickThe whole idea of terraforming mars is a bit of a pipe dream. The amount of energy and resources needed makes it impractical and impossible for humans to achieve, but whatever..
It's a game.

Dear Liam, can you ask/confirm to Tate Multimedia... Is it them still the same developers/companies who developed the "Kao the Kangaroo" series on Game Boy Advance/PS2 in 2000's era?

If true... Tell them:
