Project Zomboid just had the biggest Beta release ever overhauling loads of features
17 October 2019 at 7:02 pm UTC

AederSounds like it's taking a few ideas from Cataclysm DDA.

They openly admit CDDA is a major influence on the game. But I am glad to see more progress maybe these changes will make it a more palatable single player experience in the long run. As the game currently stands for single player it feels kind of empty for me not a ton to do once you get stuff going the right way now I'm not asking they turn into CDDA level of crazy systems but some more stuff to do and deal with in general outside of the zombies would be good. Still kind of upset I bought the game to play with people on Discord only for said group to ghost right after I bought it on Steam for full price.

Facepunch Studios confirm their plan for the Linux version of Rust, to be split from Windows & Mac

Mountain ManSeems like every time these guys make an announcement about Linux, they live up to their name.
Well, it's kinda unlikely we'll ever hear about them again. At least here.
Correct. Unless they suddenly support us again in future, this is likely the last ever post about them

See I'm kind of glad I was all ready aware of some of the stuff Facepunch used to pull back in the day with Garry's mod. Nothing about this saga with Rust has really surprised me. Well at least we won't be hearing about them round here, which ironically is how most places are when it comes to Rust seems the last year or two the game has really died off player base wise.

A Short Hike, a very sweet looking casual adventure game will be coming to Linux

I've got the Windows build of the Humble Monthly Trove version running under Wine and it's a fun quick little game to get through.

An interview with Bearded Giant Games about Linux, development and their game Space Mercs
28 June 2019 at 5:58 am UTC

Great interview, looking forward to Space Mercs launch. I do have to say it will be weird for me seeing my username in the thanks section of a game I've helped with, even if I'm just doing testing. I wish Zapa all the luck in the world as I know from talking with him working in the Free2Play world is soul crushing in many ways. Hopefully with some luck it will take off and do well on Steam I know I've been shamelessly plugging it a few places here and there when I get the chance. I'm glad I ended up buying ESH a couple of years ago got to meet one of the most interesting people I know online thanks to it, all because of an odd packaging bug related to a name difference between Debian and Ubuntu. I know several beers where drank in the course of that first night but in the end we got it sorted out and it helped to prevent problems for any one else down the line.

The massive Terraria 1.4 update "Journey's End" was shown at E3 and looks like a lot of fun

EikeIt's great to watch some games continually being expanded. I wonder though if I now bought Terraria, if I wouldn't be overwhelmed by content (others got step by step)...

---Snip--


Terraria is definitely worth getting. You may want to wait for the update to drop before starting a new game, because every big patch usually (but not always) requires generating a new world in order to get all the new features that come with a new update. That said, playing it now is by no means a bad idea, there's still loads of content that makes the game fun.

Yeah for this update generating a new world is going to be necessary as the world gen is being reworked as part of it and there are several new mini biomes being added as well and that's just what has been released via the trailer and update spoilers before the trailer. I'm really looking forward and I might even start a new character once this update drops. But the one thing is this update is not going to come out until probably November or December is what the devs said.

As odd as it sounds I'm really looking forward to the golf stuff the most out of what I seen from the trailer mostly because I know how the mappers are in Terraria and fully expect there to be some absolutely mad ones out there once the update drops and has been out for a while. it is a bit of a bitter sweet moment for me knowing and hearing from the devs this is the last major update and they have a new project that they plan on starting after this. Granted though I mean this one is a doozy of an update as this will basically double the number of items in the game and some older items are having some stuff changed to make them more useful again. I know they said that we should probably expect a few balance tweaks after this and some minor content is also planned for post 1.4 but not much from what they said on the Discord server. All in all I would consider this the game going out with a bang. Plus I fully expect the modding scene to really take off now that the game will be in long term state and doesn't have much other than bug fixes planned after this update.

WHAT THE GOLF? is another Linux game that's now going to the Epic Store first
11 June 2019 at 6:38 pm UTC

Fig better do something about all these games pulling this bull shit.Which is what it exactly what it is moving to the EGS after you promise to be on Steam. I hope either Fig does something about how many times this has happened or the courts elsewhere do because you pulled this bull shit in any other industry many of these devs would have all ready been dragged into court of violating contracts. Them pledging to supporters that they will be on Steam and then not shipping on Steam can easily land them in hot water, I mean if some people are going after the Metro devs/Deepsilver for the same reason what makes these smaller devs think they can get away with it otherwise.

The real kicker is that Fig's own words boil down to it being a preorder service unlike Kickstarter. These kind of moves are all ready eroding Fig's reputation among gamers and it causes a lot of bad blood for these devs. People taking Epic's money are thinking too short term and it shows.

The dev of "Marble It Up!" had intriguing words to say about the native vs Steam Play argument for a Linux version

liamdaweWorth reading Ethan's tweets about this: https://twitter.com/flibitijibibo/status/1134236589297717248?s=19

He hit most the points I was going to bring up including the fact that any thing using the Mono based side of Unity is as native on Windows as it is under Linux. Granted I don't think I would have been as polite pointing things out as he was. Hopefully the dev has enough brains not to try and take any pot shots at Ethan but sadly it seems brains is not a department this particular dev is leading in though.


EDIT: Also has Mac port but no Linux when even though Linux has a lower market share that we Linux users actually tend to buy more games, and I've read devs talking about the fact that's true even outside of Steam. Which I think is part of the reason why you are seeing more games with a Linux version but not a Mac build, plus it doesn't help developing for mac takes extra hardware that is pricey where as Linux worst case scenario it takes an extra disc and some effort to test it.

The RPG 'Pathfinder: Kingmaker' is getting a free Enhanced Edition update next month + new DLC

I've been meaning to pick this up at some point. Looks fun but at the same time I'm drowning in RPG's I need to get through right now anyways.
