Don't miss the GOG weekend sale which has some rather nice Linux games

When I bought Wizard of Legend I didn't know what to expect, turns out it's a good game and can be quite challenging.

Still waiting on the Linux version of the first game to show up on GOG, I never played these games more than the first couple levels so it would be great to finally take a proper look at them.

DXVK for Vulkan-based D3D11 in Wine version 0.61 is out with improved performance

ShmerlJust tried Elex with Mesa compiled against nightly llvm. No hangs anymore, but cutscenes are still choppy (probably shaders compilation delay?).

Nice shot, are the smoke errors rendering correctly now (such as the ones in the intro scene with the aircraft)? I got used to the shader stuttering, the smoothness that comes after pays off :-)

Looks like 'Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive' may be coming to Linux

This brings memories.....

I remember when I was a kid my parents used to buy me those cereal boxes which included a CD, this game was one of them, it was labeled as a "mini-game" rather than a demo. About a year later I got the full game which I've had a lot of fun with.

I'd be happy to pay for a remastered version with Linux support.

QuoteQ: Is there any data you'd be willing to share about the number of players that are running Linux?

Few thousands Not many.

Few thousands is quiet big in my penguin book, I tried this game a few years ago on Linux and it was already pretty impressive back then. Might give it another try.

Thanks Liam and Gaijin.

Dead Cells’ Linux version is now out of beta, also introduces basic mod support

I find it a bit illogical how it's out of beta but still early access :-)


I hope the Linux version will also be on GOG, I love these type of games.

Dead Cells, a 'RogueVania' now has a Beta available for Linux

This is one of my most sought after titles this year, that art style is just too good.

I think Stardock are on the right path, slow but getting there, the fact that Vulkan is on their tongue rather than DX11/12 is a good sign. Having a Cross-Platform foundation makes it easier in the long run.

Too bad about Mac, it could have been a great gaming platform if Apple didn't ruin it, many games were even ported over long before Linux became popular. Maybe there's hope with MoltenVK yet?

BeamboomAnd what do you believe are the rights of the consumers using Steam, that Steam prohibit them from?

In my opinion there's the most important thing - Ownership.

Games that require Steam running to play are more of a longtime lease than something you actually own. I buy my games DRM-Free because I can play them anytime and anywhere without depending on any service.

With that said I don't boycott Steam, I just use it to download games that can run without it. If all those Linux games on Steam would let me play without the client I would gladly buy them.

Beamboomreinstall the system and Steam client, and copy over those files. If you feel like it. Try, it works.

That's your DRM at work right there, you can't just run the game straight away, instead you need to ask Steam permission if you can run it.

Look at it this way: You the customer, who paid honest money, have to prove that you bought the game.

Kinda expected this but greatly disappointed in their decisions. Their response is a flat out no, it doesn't say much.

Would be interested to have some more elaborate details.
