TheRiddickLooks like Civilization and Age of Empires had a baby?

Out of the two, it's a lot closer to Age of Empires. But it does have some Civ features

Epic Games have confirmed a Linux version of their store is not on the roadmap

Vaguely mentioning "other open platforms" was them unwilling to commit to anything.
But as mentioned in the article, if Linux isn't even on the roadmap, what other platforms are there?

VK9, the project that aims to support Direct3D 9 over Vulkan has hit another milestone

Vulkanize all things

I'm looking forward to this being ready for use

MayeulCWhat would be interesting for them is to take a (slightly) lesser cut if the game is cross-platform. Everyone would be happy about this, I think, especially bean counters

This could also be used as an argument to offset some of the extra costs associated with supporting another platform

KimyrielleThe gaming industry in general seems to be not after longevity anyway. It all seems to be about building up a popular IP to make yourself interesting for a takeover by Big Business. Get rich quick. Leave. Bioware, Maxis, Westwood, Mojang, now Obsidian and inXile...the list is endless and never stops growing. None of these studios had a urgent reason to sell out, and they still did. Seriously, are medium sized studios even interested at all in staying in the business?

At least with respects to Obsidian, my understanding was that they were, and have been having, financial difficulties.
Their main argument for selling out was exactly not to have to worry about this anymore.

Choosing Microsoft was a bummer though

This is something I've been expecting (although not so soon).
I do hope it's true

winepak, a project to get Windows games packaged with Wine & Flatpak for an easy Linux installation
13 June 2018 at 9:30 pm UTC

A flatpack of wine version 1.6 sounds much easier, but would it work as I expect?

Probably. I'm assuming a known to work wine version gets bundled with each game in the winepaks

Linux game porter Ryan 'Icculus' Gordon is looking for new games to bring to Linux

Now I'm surprised. Wasn't there an Amiga(?) game with a similar name?

I couldn't say. Just remember playing it on the N64 as a kid!

KimyrielleBeing my brutally honest self...thanks, but we don't need yet another garage game on Linux. We got a few thousand of these. What's Turok anyway? What we need at this point are AAA titles. Stuff that makes people go "Wow, you Penguin people can play THAT???" Icculus is a human porting machine who can get anything ported you throw at him. His talents are completely wasted porting B list games. Again, what's Turok? Somebody go convince Bethesda or a company like it to let him have a go at their back catalog. Please?
