Thief inspired FOSS stealth game The Dark Mod has a massive new release

Quoting: crt0megaI'd love to see the original Thief missions recreated within TDM :/

That would be fantastic!!

It was such a ground breaking game at the time. It would be great fun to run through those missions again in a more modern engine.

Supraland is leaving GOG after less than a year, dev says sales were low

Quoting: FutureSuture
Quoting: scaineBut yeah, from a Linux perspective, GOG is just worse for everything. Worse support (do they refund?), no client, no Linux target for Devs, no multiplayer framework, no chat, no achievements, no trading platform...
Then again, it's nice not having achievements and game time tracking forced upon me. I wish Steam would make those optional...

To be fair, Steam doesn't force that on you, the developer does. There are plenty of games on Steam, including many of Valve's games, that will run without the Steam client running. Supraland is one of these, when it runs. Currently, I get a segmentation fault on Supraland, but it used to run well, even without the Steam client running.

I paid $10, and it still feels like steal!!

I picked up several wishlisted games in there!!

I'd be surprised to see the Linux version of Metro Exodus show up on GOG. Neither of the other Metro's have a Linux version on GOG.

Hopefully this makes it's way to GOG for us poor suckers who bought the game there. So far, Hinterland has made good on their promise to keep it up to date.

System76 formally tease their new 'Lemur Pro' laptop as their most open yet

Quoting: scaineCTRL has to be the most bottom-left key on a keyboard, or I'm out.

This, this, this! I love the keys, and the feel of my Lenovo keyboard, but whatever jackass decided that the Function key should be the bottom-left key needs a kick in the ass. If the Function and Ctrl key were flipped, it would be a near perfect laptop.

We Happy Few for Linux and Mac being refunded, to get an "unofficial" beta

While I'm definitely disappointed, this is about as well as it could be handled.

I'm getting my money back and I get to keep the game.

GOG users are getting shorted, because the Linux beta won't show up at GOG, but, it sounds like using Proton / WINE is the better way anyways.

And if you bought it on Steam Early Access, or were a Kickstarter backer, it's available on GOG Connect!

The Long Dark is celebrating five years since release, Episode 3 of the story due in October
24 September 2019 at 3:59 pm UTC

Of course, no mention of GOG on the infographic - because they abandoned GOG.

I'm curious to see whether I'll get episode 3 at GOG or not - the claimed that they would keep the game up to date at GOG.

What have you been playing this week and what are you clicking on this weekend?

I played a bit of Space Mercs and Rings of Saturn, but most of my time went to The Witcher 3 using Proton.
