Deep Sixed is another game that shows some promising early sales on Linux

Your coverage definitely helped with the purchase, that and the price . There was a game on the Amiga which this reminded me of, sadly I don't recall the name, but it involved fixing ships in a fleet (named after Henry VIII's wives if I recall), dinosaurs and a game breaking bug that they never fixed for us (sent in the disk and never heard back from them).

Performance issues are with the Linux client unfortunately, they had to use an older version of Unity for it, so it might be a Unity issue.

"So good news, we got the new Unity working and it should go live on QA today. Also, some more optimizations went in. For the first time on my home computer (3.4ghz with Nvidia 970) I was getting 30fps or better is Owlshead, Central Brittany, and Ardoris with shadows and anti-aliasing on! /cheer The engine upgrade opens up more options for optimizations for us as well but we might not be able to capitalize on those until next release." This from Monday on QA and then on Tuesday:

"Ok, yesterday was consumed with meetings, re-writing about 150 skill descriptions, some bug fixing, some performance work, and lots of talking about how to ship the current release with all the Unity problems. The update is we moved to the newest Unity version and enabled a few new features. The new version of the game crashes on changing scenes on most Mac and Linux boxes. We aren't getting great information on why either. So today's QA build is old version of Unity for Mac/Linux and new version for Windows. We'll see how that does. Only a few random issues reported on it currently." That was Tuesday.

The other issue is the in-game map, it was originally a 3rd party project and the middleware was not Linux compatible, supposedly they are working on it, but it has been awhile. I hope they get it fixed before release.

Its quite buggy today, usually they stamp these out within a few days. I will bug them about the Linux Unity version.

For some reason I keep coming back to SOTA over other RPG's, so my suggestion is to make up ones own mind, rather than being swayed by reviewers or "word of mouth", just as Liam states .

Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia confirmed for Linux, from Feral Interactive

DMGAnd what kind of help you want from game or these comments?

"So what" sounds destructive to me.
I want comments to be non-destructive.
Shouldn't be too high a bar.

I agree, I really want to see more games in general on Linux, but as a TW fan we're missing some of the best ones (Rome 2 and TW2). The comments dissing each of these releases are really annoying and destructive. I won't go into the Tomb Raider announcement and say bad things about it, even if I am not as interested, rather I will simply not comment at all.

Excellent! I was wondering if we'd get another TW port. Now I'd like to see Rome 2 and TW 2...

Stellaris: Apocalypse is due soon & there's a new overview video up, also a note about Linux sales

OckertWhat they don't see is when a Linux user such as myself picks up their game and then gets all his windows buddies to pick it up as well. I mean I got 7 other people to purchase it. Come on

Why not reply to him via the linked Twitter message? .

Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator is coming to Linux, developer needs testers
8 February 2018 at 1:42 am UTC

BlackBloodRumSlightly off topic, but talking of Flight Simulators, how come we never get any news articles about FlightGear? It's supported Linux the longest and is open source

The site survives on users giving news to the editors too, so if you see something drop a line . Its hard, in a good way, to keep up with everything.

By the way, they locked the referenced ticket without explanation, but may not necessarily mean anything (beyond perhaps having found enough users) as their update during the Mac release on Jan 27th stated this:

"We here at IPACS embrace variety so we want to insure that whether you are a dedicated PC, Mac, mobile, or even Linux user, we have you covered. We want everyone to experience what we are building with Aerofly."

It's time to bug Feral Interactive about future port requests once again

I have been enjoying Bomber Crew, it came with day 1 Linux support and runs well.

Arma 3 for Linux updated to 1.70, it’s now 64bit and solves the texture issue I had
15 September 2017 at 4:02 am UTC

Checking their Discord chat it seems they're aware of the Apex issue and will be fixing it (seems a few files aren't downloading from Steam).

Really happy they've continued to update their Linux version .
