Village building god sim 'Rise to Ruins' had an absolutely massive update
19 September 2018 at 4:28 pm UTC

I played it ages ago (around InDev 15-ish I think), and it was fun enough. Clearly it's changed a lot with multiple villages and a lot of new/different mechanics. Every now and then I look at it and wonder if I want to re-install and give it another try, but I never do in the end.

Even back then, it seemed like a game that needs a really robust tutorial. Anyone who's been keeping up, does it have that? And how's the balancing of the enemy monsters? It was a little lopsided back then in favour of the monsters.

Does it have a death counter? It needs a death counter.

Game store itch releases a brand new client, plus a small interview

Ah, I just noticed that the Itch front page is showing me Windows-only games again. Didn't the old client filter by what OS you were running the client in, unless told otherwise? Now I get to look at all this stuff I can't play natively.

Holy crap, I install and after entering my email and pass I have to go through FOUR captchas. That's a bit excessive.

Actually I went through seven because I had a typo when I entered my email. So three captchas the first time and four the next. I would say one is unnecessary and two is too much. This many is ridiculous.

Basically I see Itch as Bandcamp, but for games. Love the fact that small projects and developers have a place to go without having to deal with the sort of hoops the big stores need to put in place.

I see they've been working a lot on discoverability, which is really key for a service like this. Stuff like capsule should help, and I'll be interested to see what else they add in that vein in the future.

What are you clicking on this weekend and what do you think about it?

Still playing a bunch of oldschool (WotLK) WoW on a private server via Wine, plus a bit of Avernum 4 via Proton on the side. Starting to get the itch to take another run at Pillars of Eternity though, so I may switch over once I get it re-installed.

My Brother Rabbit, the incredible looking adventure from Artifex Mundi is releasing on September 21st

The art reminds me a lot of Tiny Bang Story, I wonder if the artist from that is involved.

The Humble Unity Bundle is live with some great Linux games

Huh. And I was looking at AER in the GoG sale, but this is even better.

Is Torment any good if I didn't play the first game (and probably won't)?

What are you playing this weekend?

I've got an odd craving to take another shot at Avernum 5, but I don't really want to screw with beta stuff with Proton. Maybe once it's got a full, stable release but not right now.

Cosmic Star Heroine has a Linux version in beta

Oh, I see Hyperduck did the audio. They did the soundtrack to Dust: An Elysian Tail back in the day, and it's quite good.
