Eitr, an action RPG built around exceptional combat with fantastic visuals

Reminds me a bit of another long-awaited RPG, Children of Morta.

Some thoughts on ‘Sky Break’, the futuristic open-world game that wasn’t all that great

This article perfectly describes my feeling about this game. Putting aside the frustrating controls (steam controller/gamepad was almost impossible to play with for me), and the mouse cursor constantly appearing in the middle of the screen, the fact is that the game isn't very fun to play! You die frequently, and often find yourself simply repeating what you did before - not because you wish to overcome what killed you, but because you literally have no choice! And yes, the friendly AI is horribly buggy. Also, I can never tell who is my friend and who isn't - they don't even let you change the name of the creature you're using, so when they die (amid a pile of similar creatures) all the hardwork you put into them is lost, because you end up resurrecting the wrong one!

Moon Hunters co-op action RPG released for Linux, some thoughts
4 August 2016 at 3:56 pm UTC

I also love this game, my only wish is that you could play for more than 5 "days" per session; I've "beaten" the enemy 20 times (and lost twice); I still can't find the damn moon!

But seriously, I'd love to find a game exactly like this one - local/online multiplayer, nice graphics, simple & fun RPG stylings - but perhaps wasn't so short each playthrough.

Great game, so happy it came to linux.

This War of Mine - The Little Ones DLC released, adds in children to this war-torn survival game

Steam comments are largely negative regarding this DLC - essentially, it's a harder game, without new content.

GOL Cast: Wandering Around Morrowind in OpenMW
21 December 2015 at 12:53 am UTC

I've been playing Morrowind on OpenMW for a week or so (a bit heavily, I might add). I've had ZERO crashes, everything looks incredible (Check out Vivec if you don't believe me) and I'm happy to say that the gamepad I own works out of the box - although why one would wish to play it with a gamepad is a bit beyond me!
I used steamcmd to download the MW+tribunal+bloodmoon gamedata; it loaded them automatically.

As to the game itself, two thoughts (minor spoilers):
If you have Tribunal loaded, you are occasionally awoken by an assassin - who while being difficult to kill is actually not very effective at killing you. The issue with this is that once you kill them, you get to wear their incredible light armor (AC 22) and on subsequent rude awakenings, can sell it. That means you as a payer have a serious advantage right from the start of the game - as well as a lot of gold, on a continual basis (I've been woken up/attacked 4 times already by an assassin). I have yet to find armor even CLOSE to as good as this. Plus I look badass.

Lastly, I agree with the point on combat in this article; it is really bad! Otherwise, still an incredible game.

Ziggurat, An FPS Dungeon Crawler Now On Linux And It's Good, But With Issues

FutureSuture
loggfreakwith the game only lasting 40 minutes though, i will probably wait till it's on sale
I was interested in the game until I read this.

That's only if you do very well! I'm as good as the next FPS guy, and it took me quite a while to figure out how to pass one "level" without dying.

I'd also like to say that I've had NO graphical glitches on my Intel-only Ubuntu laptop.
