A small update on the status of BATTLETECH for Linux
14 August 2018 at 5:53 pm UTC

FeistOn that note, I wonder what´s taking "Life Is Strange: BtS" so long. I´d expect that game shouldn´t be much different from the original title, which is already ported.

LiS was made with Unreal Engine, LiS:BtS was made with Unity.

The Linux version of 'Outer Wilds' is still 'to be determined' despite being a platform on the Fig campaign

Reading the comments on fig.co it looks like they have taken way longer than expected and have had to do a deal with a publisher in order to keep developing, I would speculate that the release platforms are an indication of the publisher they've done a deal with.

Casual adventure RPG 'Hero of the Kingdom III' will release with Linux support this year
6 April 2018 at 4:45 pm UTC

PatolaIs that it? A few static screens? Or the game has something more elaborate than the trailer shows, like travel/scrolling?

They're hidden object adventure games. I enjoyed the first two which ran just fine on my crappy laptop.

The situation with 'Underworld Ascendant' and Linux support is currently a little confusing

For the full story see this thread on their forums.

tldr:
  • they said during/shortly after the Kickstarter there would be simultaneous releases of alphas and betas on all platforms
  • more recently they said "Right now, it's best for us from a development perspective to focus on one platform and get the game pretty far along (probably almost done) before doing any porting work."
  • backers (civilly) expressed some outrage at this change of plans
  • they admitted their mistake and now have a guy who is fixing all the Mac and Linux specific bugs
  • once everything is working releases will be simultaneous as originally promised
  • they have said the next Windows preview release will be held until all three platforms are ready, but I have not checked they kept their word on that

Rise of the Tomb Raider announced for Linux, port from Feral Interactive

Mountain ManGlad for people who enjoy this franchise, but I found the first game to be such an on-the-rails slog that I won't be buying this.

You could go to any unlocked area at any time, there were optional tombs and challenges all over the place, what did you find "on-the-rails" about it?

I've played Rise on the PS4 and it's more of the same but bigger and better, can't wait to buy this for Linux.

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem (previously Umbra) will not have a Linux version during alpha or beta

madpingerI hope they at least are making internal builds to test as they go.

I don't think so, the way they talk in the updates implies they actually have no clue what it takes to write cross platform code. I fully expect to discover they've used some middleware that doesn't work on Linux.

cRaZy-bisCuiTDid they ever say there'll be an alpha or beta? I'm pretty sure they mentioned in the past already that there'll only be a Linux version AFTER release

It was sort of implied by the title of the Kickstarter project, two platforms on an equal footing. It was only long after they'd taken the money they announced there would be no Linux alpha or beta.

The “Fall 2017” update for Civilization VI has finally made it to Linux
12 January 2018 at 12:33 pm UTC Likes: 1

I think it's important to remember that Aspyr initially weren't going to release Civ VI for Linux, perhaps because they knew the updates would be a low priority for them. Next time time a publisher tells us they don't want to release a Linux version because they won't be able to give it full support we can use this example to help decide what it is we really want.

It's also likely that most of their resources in recent months have gone towards the mobile port of Civ VI. Could be a big money maker for them.

Also worth noting I have played three times as much Civ V over the last month as Civ VI because I can play that one together with my friends.

Colony building sim 'RimWorld' is now in Beta, with lots more content on offer

stretch611(ok, *maybe* 16-bit graphics... very similar to Prison Architect.)

Definitely 16-bit, most 8-bit machines had a resolution of less than 200x200 in 'colour' mode.
