Xamarin announces Mono will be put under an MIT license
31 March 2016 at 6:14 pm UTC

This is pretty exciting news to me. Unless I'm missing something, this means that game engines like Atomic (currently adding C# support) and Xenko (Windows only editor as of now unfortunately) will now be able to make iOS and Android builds without the end user needing to pay Xamarin the $1500 yearly fee. Somebody please correct me if I'm misunderstanding the license change

UncleivanDo i need to have the vulkan sdk installed along with these drivers?

I think you'll only need the SDK if you're trying to create an app/game that uses Vulkan.

AMD release the AMD GPU-PRO Beta Driver with Vulkan support for Linux

Nice, now it makes even more sense why Ubuntu dropped the old AMD driver a few days ago in 16.04 I can't wait to see if it makes much difference, especially once games like the Talos Principal are fully optimized for Vulkan.

The Atomic Game Engine is now open source and on github

madmachinationsOooo does this mean the 3d module is now included in atomic? Or do you need the pro version still?

I don't see a purchase page at all and all of the wording on the front page makes it seem like there's only one version now, the FOSS version.

I can compile it, but it segfaults for some reason when I run it. I'm going to try it under Ubuntu.

SUPERHOT, the time-bending shooter released on SteamOS & Linux, some thoughts

Vash63I tried it out. Ran into the mouse issue though, like it hits the edge if the window and stops working at a certain angle. If they don't fix it within my Steam refund time I'm refunding it, I already emailed support.

Yeah I get that mouse issue too. It's only when you don't have a weapon equipped I think (the mouse sensitivity goes up when you don't have a weapon equipped as well). Also in katana-only mode, when you throw your katana, it crashes. I guess they didn't think of that .

I have had the same problem. As silly as it sounds, I just had to click into the screen and it was fixed, so it seems the window is just not focused for some reason.

Deponia Doomsday coming to Linux on March 1st

NatedawgI could be wrong, but weren't the Deponia games made in Godot?

It's Wintermute engine like Daedalic's other games. I don't think Godot was even around when the first game came out. Would be super cool if they switched to it though!

Okay, this makes sense now... I found a Tweet by Juan Linietsky (one of the Godot leads) and now I see where I got confused. It wasn't made in Godot, but the iOS port of Deponia was made in Godot
