pbYeah, well... the game crashes dead on viewing contents of the holiday crate...

The problem is the goal explosion in the santa crate, but there's a workaround until psyonix fixes it, you can read more here:

Nice and clean workaround, thanks! (Though I just played to unlock the Happy Penguin topper and stopped after that, but I'm sure it will be handy for the others :-)

I hate this game and it hates me, but for Happy Penguin I might actually play a few matches. ;-)

For fans of retro racing games, Super Night Riders is like OutRun & Hang-On

Um... did they "improve" the graphics lately? I seem to remember the game looking better (less plastic-ky) when I put it on my wishlist...

Steam now has a form of platform-specific wishlisting, to help developers see demand

Nice! I have had the settings to only show Linux/SteamOS games on for a long time, so I hope I don't have to remove/readd items on my wishlist to have it working?

Now I'll have to go over the full list of steam games and add all those windows/mac-only titles that I'd like to see ported...

It would be interesting to see how those stats look like for some of the highly demanded games, like The Witcher 3.

Meanwhile, Linux builds of his other games are still missing from Steam. :-/

GOG adds Linux downloads for retro titles Earthworm Jim 1 & 2

cRaZy-bisCuiTI'd buy them if GOG wouldn't charge 10 €. WTF is wrong with them? Packing old DOS games in a Dosbox requires not too much skill. Why would you buy it for a price like this?

I don't think it is GOG.com so much in this case but Interplay themselves insisting on that price. You look at other games in their library and they are charging the same.

That is correct, prices for the whole Interplay catalogue went up some time ago, most games, including Earthworm Jim, used to be 5.99 iirc - and frequently on sale.

pbYes, please. And if there are any achievements, I hope they will unlock on Linux this time. In TTM I had to transfer the save file over to wine-installed game to unlock the achievement, luckily there was only one.

The one achievement triggered just fine for me. On 6 oct 2015 it says.

Nice. Mine is from 25.05.2014 and it didn't work back then.

Could your friendly GOG contacts tell us when they plan to release Galaxy client for Linux? I have hundreds of games on GOG (Earthworm Jims included) and it's a real hassle to manage them, and that's ignoring all the extra content that comes with them (soundtracks, manuals, codewheels etc.).
