The shoot 'em up 'ProtoCorgi' now has an updated demo, which is also on Steam for Linux too

Is it to early to be already wanting to say shut up and take my money. Love what I've played of the demo so far.

Minimalistic puzzle game 'Simple Dot' releasing next month, looks like it could be interesting
23 April 2019 at 10:36 am UTC

This looks good wish-listed for future reference for when it inevitably gets buried before I have money to get it. Plus hey I think given what it was tested on I think this is a game nearly every one with a PC of some form should be able to run which is nice to see every once in a while.

scaineThis looks lovely, particularly since I can hide the ranking system. Reminds me, weirdly, of N+, but it's a puzzler. I suppose the price will be crucial. Not sure exactly what price point would put me off buying such a simple looking game... I paid £5 for TIS-100 without batting an eyelid though. Maybe a bit more, around the Bridge Constructor Portal £7.50 mark?

Anyway, wishlisted. It's only 3 weeks away.

Not to be totally off topic but I'm so glad we got a native port of N++ I felt a little guilty knowing I caved before it released considering I tend to keep a No Tux No Buck policy most the time but it was well worth the price of admission.

Enter the Gungeon's final free update 'A Farewell to Arms' is up

dpanterDo people actually play EtG with a controller?

I tried it once, never again unless I'm doing co-op.

But this is a little sad knowing that other than some balance and bug fixes this is the last major update that we will see for the game. I've owned it since 2016 still have not managed to see or unlock everything. Hell I think I've only killed on past and that was on a super lucky run that I still can not figure out how I managed it.

I've been thinking about tracking down a used i7 machine or something similar and sending it Tarn's way. I might email him here soon about it.

The 3D steampunk dungeon crawler 'Vaporum' just had a huge performance update
20 February 2019 at 6:08 am UTC

Well I might have to get this now as the performance problems where a bit of a put off for me given how low end my machine is. I guess it's going to by bought here soon.

Six years ago today, Steam was released for Linux - Happy Birthday
15 February 2019 at 12:55 pm UTC

Well it's been a fun ride for me I had to watch Loki go down when I first started getting into Linux driving me to dual boot for year but have long since left the world of Windows permanently about a year or two before Valve announced Steam was coming to Linux. I had dual booted for years before that spending as much time as I could in Linux but my games ended up making me keep windows around. Since Steam launched it's been really nice for my personal machines to be Windows free even if I still keep up with Windows enough to be able to fix it for other people. It's been a long strange trip watching the dream both start to dies and then be resurrected by Valve in a way not even Loki could match at the time. Now all we need to do is start getting more machines that offer Linux preinstalled for desktop users and we will be there finally.

Anodyne 2: Return to Dust will have Linux support at launch
7 January 2019 at 1:52 pm UTC

NezchanI never got very far in the first one due to that stupid Adobe AIR thing. I wonder if it'll actually install now that Proton is a thing.

Edit: According to the compatibility reports page, that's a big no.

I've owned the first one since release on GOG, and the GOG version for Windows seems to run fine for me under Wine. Going to have to snag this one once it comes out.

The survival roguelike 'Wayward' recently added some interesting new ways to play
29 December 2018 at 10:43 am UTC

I've owned Wayward for a while now. One of the few early access games I've bought in the last couple of years I wasn't disappointed in.

Nice to see you do a report on this, glad you caught it I was about to get in touch about this with you on the Discord server. This will be interesting to see how it goes form them.

ImantsI got Worms W.M.D but I can't lunch the game on my Ubuntu 18.10. Game just wont start at all

Requires a workaround for MESA based cards. Here is how I have my file modified to work on my laptop.


export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib"
chmod a+x ./Worms\ W.M.Dx64
./Worms\ W.M.Dx64
