Looks like Valve could be set to launch something called Steam Cloud Gaming

Would love to have the choice of running games locally or through the cloud.

If Valve servers all run Linux it would mean all games supported in their cloud service should run locally as well. Either with a native build or through SteamPlay/Proton - few exceptions aside. Cloud support would certainly be a great incentive for developers to support at least either one.

Really looking forward to the release of this one.

For those interested, the old demo is still available: https://semaeopus.itch.io/off-grid

I wouldn't be worried. At least not too much. IIRC, CS:GO struggled quite a bit in the beginning and eventually become a big hit.
Also my guess is that the possibility to play as a team with a friend will be a total game changer if done right.

Let's see where it goes. (=

Knightin'+ is a small and streamlined dungeon crawler out with Linux support now

stanI tried the demo and liked it until the first boss which is nearly impossible to avoid .
You should have the rush ability by then. (:

What have you been playing and what are your thoughts?

I started with Katana ZERO - absolutely brilliant game I was able to enjoy thanks to SteamPlay/Proton.

And continued with Hollow Knight - bought it a long time ago but finally took the time to play it. Well I started and now probably 50% through the main game but just a guess.

Also played just a little bit of Eagle Island and Supralang - could resist but only 1h in each. Certainly will continue later with both.

Last but not least, played/watched the demo of Synergia - amazing story and great visuals/atmosphere. Looking forward to the release!

WHAT THE GOLF? is another Linux game that's now going to the Epic Store first

Let's just spend all the money on games with a SteamOS/Linux icon and actual support on the store which had a huge part in making Linux gaming what it. And tell all friends incl non Linux gamers about the great ones! (=

michaLove itch.io! I miss cloud saves sine I'm constantly switching machines though. Well, nothing is perfect. =)
...
Yeah, I'd love a solution where I just point the itch.io client to a folder which we be in my Dropbox/Gdrive/..
Games would only need to specify their local save directory/file and the itch.io client could `rsync` that with the specified folder. (Well at least in unix based systems that should work ).

The simplest way would be if they all just saved to $HOME/.local/share/games/%GAMENAME%

I like it and would be very happy with that solution. However, I doubt it's works well for non tech-savvy people. They'd need to setup `rsync` themselves or at the very least make `$HOME/.local/share/games/` a symlink'ed to a cloud synced drive..
