Linux Mint and the Cinnamon desktop progressing well, all-time high donations
4 February 2020 at 5:30 am UTC

I switched from Cinnamon to Mate a while back and the main reason I did was the lack of refresh rate changing in the properties and more crashes than I would like. Mate has been rock solid for me but once the refresh rate changes are in there I may pop Cinnamon back on to give it another chance.

Better late than never. I'll pick it up at GOG when it's there.

Seems like Feral Interactive may have a few surprises for Linux in 2020

The games I would like to see a Linux port of most would be:

1. The Council
2. Vampyr
3. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
4. Call of Cthulhu
5. DOOM Eternal

I tried to keep it to games I actually think have a chance. Red Dead II would be an awesome game to have ported but it requires Rockstar Social Club so they would have to drop that or port it to Linux and I don't see either happening. Hellblade would be awesome but Microsoft owns the people who made it so I doubt that happens. Any Epic store exclusive also probably won't happen at least soon.

Dominus Galaxia, a 4x strategy game heavily inspired by Master of Orion 1 has a Linux demo up

I was able to play the demo on Manjaro. No issues when using the Vulkan launcher. The openG launcher wouldn't even get to the main screen. I didn't have Steam running while I played so I am not sure what the other users error message was about. I could only give them $1 due to tight times but hopefully they can reach their goal.

No Linux version of Lonely Mountains: Downhill yet due to IL2CPP in Unity

Unity has gone so far downhill when it comes to Linux support. Making UE4 look good. I wish they would open source it. Something tells me the LInux issues would get fixed faster.

If this departure messes with future native Linux versions of their games I will be mad.

Works great in Manjaro for me. I have been waiting for this kind of program for years now. Closest thing to MSI Afterburner for Linux I have seen for AMD cards. I'll Patreon this for sure.

The Bard's Tale IV: Director's Cut to be launched August 27

Pretty steep prices. Not saying I am not interested but was hoping for $25-30. Also both GOG and Steam still say Windows only. They should fix that so they don't turn off potential customers.

raneonGOG itself lacks Linux support in its client and their Linux engagement is really low, so I can understand if this is not the channel a developer want to support. Manually downloading and updating games is not what most users want either, if the game is DRM free on Steam I cannot see why this would be criticised. If the game is on GOG, you need to login as well to their website to get it, so this is then the same DRM like on Steam then.

The entire reason I buy games from GOG is the ability to manually download and update games on my own. It is entirely what I want. Considering I could never log into the website again after downloading the installer that is hardly DRM. Steam forces me to login every time I wish to play many games. That is DRM.

This company won't get a cent from me. If having a DRM free version on Steam means no need for a GOG version then why does the Windows version get one ? On top of that it runs poorly on Linux ? So poor company and a poor product ? I have better things to spend my money on.
