Quotebrutally difficult and deaths are permanent

That doesn't sound like fun. Where's the joy in playing a massively huge randomly generated world full of fascinating stuff if you die within 5 minutes (by worm)?

Bah!

GZDOOM based fan game 'Castlevania: Simon's Destiny' has a nice graphical update out

This looks crazy good. Makes me think of Blood and Hexen rolled in to one.

The amount of Linux users on Steam has increased when going by daily active users

If Linux gamer growth had kept pace with Windows growth then percentage wouldn't have gone down. This does show that growth hadn't reversed at least.

QuoteI also love how their official press page says "PC (Windows, Linux), Mac".

Nice! Next step, getting developers to start using IBM-PC Compatible (Windows, Linux, macOS)

Ah come on! The said they were releasing it on PC. I have two PC's: a MacOS PC and a Linux PC.

I can barely tell what's going on. Did Michael Bay make this?

Luke_NukemI've been addicted to this for a while now - playing on macOS.
The game is everything you could hope for, and more.

How's the performance on macOS?

It's... reasonable. I had to turn anti-aliasing off, and reduce effects details - but you know, running on a MacBook Pro with an RX560, and probably with the last openGL version whatever that was. It's good enough for a game or two.

I fully expect the Linux performance to be kilometers ahead.

It’s a metal game... And that’s what you’ll get out of a 560, it’ll be the same on windows.

Oh cool! \m/.

But yeah, honestly though, even with a few deets turned off or down, it still looks great and runs fantastic. Super enjoyable game.

bgh251f2I would believe that's because there's no clear way to know if a game bought on GOG is being played on Linux, so it would be hard to make the division of profits. The fact that there's no client can't be helping either.
You may very well be right on that one. I would be surprised though, if GOG didn't have some way of tracking it

I'd expect them to track downloads for games - the safest indicator there is (mostly). Someone who games on Linux or macOS isn't going to be downloading the Windows versions.
