Kim, an open-world RPG set in colonial India is now available on Linux

Interesting setting and graphics design, judging by some comments on the Steam, it appears the devs care about their game and are committed to fix bugs and improve it. Will definitely be eye'ing this once it lands on GOG.

Fantasy city-building strategy game 'Hearthlands' adds a peaceful win condition

Liam you always mention the dual screen problem. Have you considered running 2 separate X screens? The only limitations it has is that you can't drag windows from one to another or play in 3840x1080 (which is horrible in most cases), otherwise it works perfectly and games always run on the monitor I want them on, including Unity ones.

2D horror 'Corpse Party' is now available for Linux on GOG, some thoughts
9 December 2017 at 10:26 pm UTC

Played this a bit last night, so far only the part Liam mentioned that was quite scary. Pixel graphics and horror might not go hand in hand, but in a dark room with headphones it does make a difference even in this case.

On the technical side I also found it very stable and will run on a potato laptop.

I definitely reccommend this one.

The brutal FPS 'Apocryph' is planned for Linux, looks quite brilliant

Looks amazing and it's something I would definitely buy. I still love Quake after all these years.

Looks exactly the kind of game I'd like to get lost into. It's singleplayer so hopefully will make it to GOG once it's done :-)

The Signal From Tölva is now officially released for Linux on Steam & GOG

stanIt’s a terrible game, right from the start you have no idea what it is you are supposed to be doing. Really disappointed.

I'm kinda with you on this, the "hijack robot" thing is just an illusion, in truth you're just quick traveling because if I was really hijacking it I would at least find the older bot I switched from. Another thing I dislike is how stupid the AI is, I can just spawn in a friendly outpost and start shooting other friendlies at which point they take out their weapon but just run away and don't even fight back.

As I've said in my previous post, I'm still enjoying the game a fair bit but can't help but feel how cheap some parts of it are. The graphics and the performance is by far the best thing I like about it.

SuperTuxKart 0.9.3 is now officially out with new tracks and graphical upgrades, Steam release delayed

CyrilAm i the only one who have issues with shadows in-game ?
With my config (which isn't bad) it's locked at 30 FPS when activated (on Low), but the others settings are in Max except Motion Blur and DoF.
Without shadows, the game's running at 60 FPS.

Just tested it with full details on, including shadows, V-Sync off, FPS went 80+ on my system. I remember a game (Forgot the name) where it halved my frame rate when I turned on MSAA. Try playing with the game's AA setting and V-Sync settings, maybe it's a similar issue.

I'm very impressed how far the Unity Engine has come. I ran a few performance tests considering the graphics quality of this game and to my surprise, it's very playable even on 1 core.

The map is big and it involves lots of walking, I've only played on and off for about an hour so far but really enjoying it. I'm really pleased to see GOG offering Linux versions of games more often, have to say I was a bit disappointed for some time.

I hope Stardock is keeping GOG in mind, because I'm looking forward to both Ashes and this.
