My experiences of Valve's VR on Linux
12 August 2020 at 1:25 pm UTC

Quoting: ElectroDDConcerning the motion sickness in FPS, I tried alien isolation.
It's not motion sickness you experience, but the strange feeling that your legs are not moving while you move creating a feeling of weirdness in your brain and you kind of lose sense of orientation and tend to believe you're falling.
It takes some hours (2-3 for me ) to adjust, but after that, really neat experience even though the VR experience is kind of experimental in it, you get the free movement experience non the less.
It was on an occulus rift first gen on windows when I still was running win10.

Btw, is there a way to get Alien Isolation running with VR on the Index?
(A way that someone has tried and can confirm it is working well.)

Great!

I haven't been using the Index for almost 2 weeks by now.
Was it bearable during the heat wave we currently have?

I could hardly stand the massive sweating when it was way cooler.

Quoting: beguiSurprised he is still supporting Linux considering his statements in the past.. Glad to see it coming.. fantastic game..

This was an external port by Icculus.

Blow wanted to be part of the back then quite lucrative Humble Indie Bundle.
But this required to have a native Linux build.
He most likely hated Linux already at that time - it was just for the money and I guess it paid.

I bet he simply wants to avoid a shitstorm by not supporting Linux with the update.
Probably not such a big code change anyhow.

But I wouldn't expect him to support Linux with any new project.

This was such a good game and still is.
I'd like to get my hands on new levels. :/

How about gifting across region?

What a pity Bad North never got a Linux release.
It looks awesome.

At least it has Platinum rating at ProtonDB.

Ron Gilbert, developer of Thimbleweed Park is switching to Linux

Quoting: Eike
Quoting: subEven more exciting to me than Ron is trying out Linux now (which is great) is this part:

QuoteTerrible Toybox, the actual team behind Thimbleweed Park are working on a new game and game engine too.

I couldn't find any information about this.
Liam, did you deduce that from the fact that Ron is working on a new engine
or did he explicitly mentioned working on a new p&c game? :)

They said this in the Dolores Steam forums and they also said while Dolores doesn't support Linux, their engine and their next game will.

Great! \o/

Destroy, consume, spread and stop at nothing - CARRION is out now

Quoting: subThe game mechanics look great.

But what is the actual game about?
I play as this monster blob and kill some humans?
I really fail to see the goal of the game from the videos. :D

IIRC from the demo, escape from where you were being held.

Ah right, I should probably just check the demo. ;)
