Fantasy Farming: Orange Season, a farm-life RPG recently added Linux support
16 February 2018 at 12:49 pm UTC

belisamaApparently, we get *all* the farming games this week! And I'm okay with that!

Me too! But it's kinda unlikely that we will get "My time at Portia" and "Staxel"

Stellaris: Apocalypse is due soon & there's a new overview video up, also a note about Linux sales

UltraAltesBrotParadox games are DRM free, see here.

Sorry, but I see Steam, Steam and Steam in the link and as we all know Steam does not allow game downloads without its DRM client (and needless to say neither of the three games interests me). I have nothing against Paradox personally (even brought Tyranny on GOG, which shows, they can do DRM-free when they want to).

I'll start using Steam the first minute Valve removes its DRM-client (or makes it optional).

You got it completely wrong. Yes, you need the client to download the games, BUT after that you can play the Paradox Games and lots of other games without Steam. You can backup and copy it onto many computer as you like. NO DRM is stopping you!!!

Also no developer or publisher is forced to use the SteamDRM, so it is optional already!

It's time to bug Feral Interactive about future port requests once again

mirvI'm still going with Space Marine.

I'd be willing to buy a "separate" (GNU/Linux only entry) game rather than expect a free port of an old game that I already have.

Well, it seems to work with Wine somehow https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUTkv40UAI4 .
Not sure if I would want it, as multiplayer is dead.

If I have time then I play W40K: Eternal Crusade if I want some W40K multiplayer action . But that is even more unlikely to be ported, as there is only a very small player base left . Currently not working on Wine also. Haven't tried Wine 3.0 yet. So, not the best material for an port.

Become a mechanic and save the world in Iconoclasts, now on Linux

Shame that there is no Steam/GOG-Bundle. So I have to wait for 50% off.

The developer of strategy game 'TINY METAL' has said Linux is a 'priority'
21 December 2017 at 2:09 pm UTC

QuoteWill you be picking up a copy when it releases for Linux?

Sure. If he decides to use the Steam Beta for the Linux Build then maybe a bit earlier

Advance Wars was an awesome game. I hope he gets it right. Most clones failed in comparison to AW

Linux market share on Steam drops again as Steam continues to grow
2 December 2017 at 10:34 pm UTC

subSorry, but I don't see the point always mentioning that the absolute number of Linux Steam users "still" grows. It sounds like saying "It's not that bad".

It is that bad - the fraction of Linux users is far below 1 %.
And THAT is ALL that counts to developers (unless they are Linux fans).

Even if some dev plans on absolute numbers, it wouldn't be clever from an economical point.
as every man hour spent to improve experience for the potentially 100 times larger user base is most likely far better spent

Only with absolute numbers you get the real value of a market share.

Sure I go for the biggest one first, but if the smaller share is still big enough to get money out of it, so why shouldn't I support it? Because it's peanuts? It is still a plus. We have reached the critical mass some years ago already.

To the Moon sequel 'Finding Paradise' will launch in December with Linux support

WOW! It's about time Shame that they do not do pre-orders- Would have bought it right away, and it is extremely rare that I pre-order a game nowadays.

razing32Whelp. Time to finally play To the Moon and dust it off.

Seriously? You haven't played it yet?!?!?!

Minecraft's 'The Update Aquatic' is set to overhaul the rather boring ocean
21 November 2017 at 12:02 pm UTC

Well, I think the updates from Mojang/Microsoft are kinda lame as always. There are several Mods which adds a hell lot more "Aquatic" Content & Experience as what they have announced so far. OMG! We get a dolphin! Oceancraft for example gives me Whales, Sharks, Crabs, and lot more. Maybe Jens should have a look on Mods and get inspired instead of the real world.

I wonder where the Shipwrecks come from. Have never seen any Ships on the Ocean (without a Mod) or even build and used one (without a Mod). Also the Rail-/Trainsytem ist still a joke and could use some improvements. No Ships, No Aircraft’s. Vanilla Minecraft is so boring. Without Mods I wouldn't play it anymore

Also then I wonder if we will see the "Super Duper Graphics Pack" Upgrade on the Java-Version of the game or if it is Windows & Console only.

F1 2017 released for Linux as Feral Interactive’s first Vulkan-only title, here’s a port report
3 November 2017 at 8:48 am UTC

What about the copy protection Denuvo which seems to be still built in for the Windows version of F1 2017. Does the Linux version have Denuvo too?

EVERSPACE expansion released, will work on Linux soon and it's coming to GOG
25 October 2017 at 4:23 pm UTC

Luke_NukemThat may be the case. But I like GOG as a business and want to support them, so my $$ is going their way.

Sure, I liked and supported them as GOG has stood for "Good old Games". At this time GOG was awesome!

Nowadays it is a kind of love-hate relation ship. Linux support sucks. Many Games have no Linux Version available for several reasons. The Galaxy Client is still not available for Linux. Patches have delays. With Luck it is just ONE Day, but sometimes it takes weeks or month if they get any at all. Games with Galaxy Client dependency aren't longer DRM-Free. The Shop hasn't been adapted to the new needs with newer Games, DLC, Deluxe Editions and on on.
