The timer might kill the fun for me, but wishlisted anyway.

I bought the Blackwell Bundle for 1.29€ (-90%). Not bad for four old-school adventure games with great reviews. I'm actually familiar with the series and Dave Gilbert's work in general from the time I used to hang out at the AGS forums a decade ago, but I haven't gotten around to actually playing any of these. Should provide a few hours of budget fun.

g000hIf the Nintendo Switch is "big enough" to get DOOM and Skyrim ported to it. Then if a popular name like Atari manages to pull this off as a big hit - Then Skyrim, DOOM could be ported to Atari Box... and who knows, maybe regular Linux will eventually get titles like that.
TBF Nintendo is still huge. Atari's brand alone won't do much here, and popularity doesn't mean anything if it isn't backed by the market. I doubt Bethesda bases their business decisions on hype or nostalgia.

I'm not trying to sound negative, I really hope Atari's gambit succeeds. And of the consoles, Nintendo's slice of the pie is the one an affordable "indie box" might actually take a bite out of.

Haque, a rather great glitch fantasy roguelike has released with Linux support, also something about Penguins

Samsai streamed the game for a bit, seemed to like it as well. Thanks for reminding me to wishlist it.

Looks and sounds exactly like a C-64 game... on LSD.

A different setting for an RPG if nothing else.

Almost said "novel setting", then realized the game is actually based on a novel.

Survival game 'The Long Dark' just got a major update, prepare to face the Moose

EikeWhy is this? Aren't mooses vegetarian and should be less interested in attacking you?
Unlike wolves, they're almost as likely to run at you than away from you (cows with calves, bulls in a rut, or just mad bastards, take your pick). And they're huge! They might not try to eat you, but they sure as hell can kick or otherwise pummel your to death.

If I remember correctly, even disregarding moose-related traffic accidents, they cause more deaths and injuries in North America and northern Europe than bears and wolves combined. Of course, there are a lot more of them around, and "more" isn't saying much when the actual numbers are low.


To say something on the actual topic: If survival games didn't stress me out so much, The Long Dark would probably be among the top three on my list.

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

qptain NemoThat depends on what you consider "reality". It's the number of people who are both fairly committed to only playing on Linux most of the time and still interested in the particular game.
Well I for one am so committed that you won't find non-Linux games on my wishlist. Even ones that I'd like to see on Linux.

EDIT: My point is, this only works for Linux gamers who know about this feature, don't mind filtering out Windows games on Steam's front page and don't mind cluttering up their wishlists with games they might never be able to play. That means there's bound to be a lot of potential Linux customers either unknowingly or intentionally missing from that number.

edoNow devs will finally realize how really few people are the people making so much noise about linux versions of the games.
Just in case you're not being sarcastic: If they "realize" anything at all based on these numbers, they're idiots. This number won't come close to reflecting reality, partly due to the problems brought up here. If Steam had a proper port wishlist feature, it might help in gauging interest. As it is, developers and publishers would do much better with Linux sales data on current ports of games in their genre/market.

tuubiCastlevania: Samsai's Destiny? When?

It's already available. You can get it here: http://www.moddb.com/mods/castlevania-simons-destiny
Thanks, but I was asking if Samsai is planning to livestream it at some point, like he did with Brutality and WolfenDoom.

Maybe I should have asked in proper English. But you know, too lazy busy for grammar.
