QuoteThe limitation right now with their new online multiplayer is that it's limited to joining by IP. Hopefully once they've managed to ensure it's stable, they can add a proper lobby system and a server browser.
Just to note, apparently you can also invite people through the usual Steam system; my brother was playing earlier today and invited me to join a game that way, no IP typing necessary. (I timed out half a minute later due to his connection being really spotty, but the connecting part definitely worked.)
Oh thats good to hear, its not very clear in-game.

elmapullevel editors are fine and all but, shouldnt we be supporting, i dont know... OPEN SOURCE GAMES?
nah, just lets lock OUR content to an proprietary runtime.

come on guys, an OSS game should give us much more freedom than just an level editor in theory, but if no one fund one that aint gonna happen...
We would cover more open source games if more people emailed in tips about them, I post them whenever we do or whenever one of my RSS feeds for various open source games gets an update. It's not that we're ignoring them, but a lot aren't updated for some time.

adamhmBesiege is on GOG too
Gah, another case of a developer not mentioning it on their site. My bad, added the link.

Project 5: Sightseer looks like a brilliant open-world sandbox game, releasing next month

SirBubblesLooks flaming brilliant. Me want. Anyone find any gameplay videos yet, or is it a bit too early for that?
I'm working on some early impressions at the moment

A video is difficult, as a lot of it is just roaming around in the first number of hours. Relaxing to play, but not exactly exciting video material. However, I did include it in the Monday livestream, if you go here and skip to 1:52:00, you will see a little of the gameplay. I'm downloading the VOD to cut and stick up on YouTube to make it easier.

pete910Not sure why people are bitching about it on YT though.
You bothered to read YT comments? You poor man.

AresoGrand Theft Auto (1, 2), is it you, guys?
Not quite, I mentioned in my original thoughts article others were comparing it to those classic titles too much. The gameplay is vastly different, it just happens to be 2D with some vehicles.

Total War: ROME II - Emperor Edition is again showing signs of possible Linux support

thed4rkn1teAll of the activity seems to be on the shared mac/linux content depots, without any updates to the executable depots. I would guess they are rolling out new content for the mac version.
I thought the same thing when I looked at it initially, until you see stuff like this one, where Linux has been actually input in the "oslist". Who knows what will happen.

A lot later than expected, but the open-world pirate RPG 'Tempest' is now in Beta for Linux

TcheyCurrent Beta is broken (no Play/Install button after entering the beta branch), but there is good hope they will fix the issue soon enough.
If they don't, feel free to email me so I can chase them on it. It's what I'm here for
