@liamdawe I think it's worth noting that a Unity dev has offered to help them on Twitter

Rise of Industry, a strategic tycoon game is now out in Early Access

scaineThat said, they also say they only support Ubuntu 12.04, which is hardly ideal in 2018...
I think Valve support from 12.04 and after (at least until the 16.04, the last LTS).
They could upgrade a bit their runtime environment though. I don't know much people still using 12.04...

Voxel Tycoon, a new strategy game about transportation, building factories, and mining will come to Linux
31 January 2018 at 12:33 am UTC

I'm a big fan of Transport Tycoon and I must say that I've had a lot of fun with Transport Fever.
It has some technical flaws (like some graphical glitches on Linux), but the fun far outweight these flaws.
One thing that I particularly like (out of the mere simulation of course), is the voice of the narrator. You remember the old fashion pictures of CEOs in Transport Tycoon? Well it feels the same, but with sound (a good ol' Texas accent and a passion for capitalism )

Edit: like that guy

Sky Force Reloaded has a bit of a grind to it, but it's a very good shoot 'em up

I love this game, the gameplay and the game design are incredibly well thought! Always something new to do when you finish a mission, always a small power-up given at the exact right time to make you do just one more mission. This game is addictive

Note: it's a game made with Unity

The best game I played on Android, I'll definitely buy this one on Linux!

The work from the Solus developers to get their Linux Steam Integration as a Snap is coming along
11 November 2017 at 8:18 pm UTC

Hello @ikey,
I was wondering why Snap and not Flatpak? I don't know much about the technicalities behind these solutions, I've just heard that Flatpak is more secure, but maybe it's too secure to make a proprietary software like Steam working flawlessly.

A new Steam Client Beta fixes Linux desktop and menu shortcuts, adds pre-compiled GPU shaders for Vulkan

AimelaThat's pretty much because the issue doesn't affect everyone, and seems to vary by DE; I encountered the issue while using Cinnamon(and judging by other comments, this will also occur with GNOME), but everything is fine in KDE Plasma. Regardless, I'm pretty sure this is something that Valve needs to fix.
If it's a bug for GNOME and every GNOME related DE, that's pretty much the majority I think.
There's around 50/50 GNOME vs KDE, and the others DEs are mostly derived from GNOME/GTK.

Fix fullscreen video? It absolutely does not work here, I got the video in 720p in the corner of the screen and the rest is memory garbage.
