NBlood, an open source port of the classic FPS 'Blood' using EDuke32

CybolicCould you add a mention to the first paragraph that Voidpoint are the developers of Ion Maiden? Without that info, the paragraph is a bit obtuse.
Good point, done.

QuoteIf you need a copy of Blood to use with it, you can find it on GOG.

Or Steam.... https://store.steampowered.com/app/299030/Blood_One_Unit_Whole_Blood/
I swear every time this happens they just don't show up when I search...

A reminder about Steam's platform-specific wishlist feature you should be using
22 February 2019 at 1:29 pm UTC

NinexThe description I've seen of this feature before, and even in this article, don't seem to match up to the actual description on Steam to me. It sounded like a way to let developers know you wanted were wishlisting a game to play on Linux, but the actual description just looks like it simply hides games for other platforms from you as you browse. Is this for your benefit only, or can developers see that you have this option ticked?
Developers see Linux wishlists, that is the point made in the article.

Edit: Made a minor text adjustment to make that much clearer.

Casual puzzle game 'Snakebird Primer' is out with Linux support

Thanks to a gift, I can confirm it is indeed missing the Steam API file. I've emailed the developer and pointed them to the Steam topic.

mirv....aaaaaand I think I know what I'll be playing around with tonight. Good to see an update, and I'm incredibly curious about how well Unreal Engine with Vulkan will work on my Kaveri.
(I don't keep games installed if I'm not playing them, so I don't really see notifications about game updates unless they're posted here.)
And that's why I've got so much of my library installed, to keep everyone up to date
Your hard drive/s must be a monster.
I have four, all of them almost full...

liamdaweTry this fix and see if it helps.

Nope, doesn't do the trick! (I hadn't tried until now 'cause I'm on Mesa/Intel instead of nVidia, though of course it didn't hurt to check.)
Hmm odd, can't test myself as I don't own it, could be a Mesa bug?

EikeMajor updates should be posted by the developers as news (that's my hope at least), so following the games could help.

This could be helpful as well: https://store.steampowered.com/updated/myapps/
The problem here, is that there's tons of developers who only post changelogs in their Steam forum as lots of developers feel like they spam users with updates.

The good looking beat 'em up 9 Monkeys of Shaolin still coming to Linux, releasing later this year

s0laI wonder why it has "coming soon" tag, when it's going to be released on winter?
It's just a generic tag we use for unreleased games that are confirmed to be coming, I suppose we could do with making that clearer.

liamdaweA similar issue I saw in another game, if you re-name the Steam API file and put it where it wants it, it should launch. Should be easy for the dev to fix.

Heh, hello over here as well! Yeah, in this case it's some files that are flat-out missing, though fortunately you can find 'em in the original Snakebird instal folder. I agree that it'll be simple enough for a dev to fix, and anyone with the original Snakebird (or possibly also any other Mono-based game) would have the files on-hand to fix right away anyway.

Unfortunately I'm also having some other graphical corruption issues right after finishing the first level:

Much as I don't mind having an easier Snakebird to play through, just that first little tutorial level itself is unlikely to hold my interest. I have faith it'll get fixed.
Try this fix and see if it helps.
