Unique puzzle experience 'We Were Here Too' will make you shout at your friends

Actually, @SadL. The puzzles are randomized to some degree, so it's worth playing through it at least once on each side and then one more time for the full good ending For the price, that's some solid fun!

EikeThere's a free predecessor as well.

Did anybody try playing one of these with a Windows system on the other side?
Sadly we were here, the predecessor, doesn't work at all as advertised on linux. It's essentially unplayable.
Aside from the standard unity fullscreen bug, this specific issue made it impossible to enjoy:
QuoteTo get in-game and get around the "skip-problem" you have to place the cursor at the place where the "SKIP"-button would appear
You have to perform this step during the loading screen, because afterwards the game won't recognise the cursor due to the bug of the bad unity port
Now you can play, but if you die, you can't click the "RETURN TO LAST CHECKPOINT" button...


We Were Here Too, however, works as expected

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

noxSo many strategy games
So what? It is may favourite genre. So I would like to see more strategy games on Linux. MORE I say!

Ahh! If it's you favorite genre, that changes everything of course...!

No, seriously... As said, I'm happy that Total War seems to be profitable for Feral, as long as they also port something that I enjoy from time to time. But "So what" doesn't help anybody.

To be fair, what I said doesn't help anybody either. I would just like to see more non-racing and non-strategy games I like racing and strategy but I have more than enough now!

Can you hear that? It's the Steam sales train and it's arrived, also Steam Wishlist revamp
16 February 2018 at 12:20 am UTC

EhvisThe new wishlist is functionally good, but I would have preferred the items to be a bit smaller.
Holy shit, yes.

Feels like it's not scaled right at all at 1080p

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

I just really want a high quality standard MMO on our platform We do have Albion and a few others, but none of them fill the gaps left from games like SWTOR, WoW, Rift and FFXIV.

I realize that porting an MMO would be a large undertaking, but I'm allowed to dream, yeah?

Realistic racing game 'DRAG' coming to Linux soon, built on Linux and it looks astonishing

noxLooks very interesting, but the gifs are now constantly stopping to buffer (even after playing once). Something is weird with them. (tried in private mode too, same thing - maybe even slightly worse)
You need to click to play them now, or is this after you click? Works fine for me even on mobile.

After click. I'm okay with gifs buffering, but they don't seem to cache after buffering. It's strange, but if I'm the only one then we'll just blame something on my end

The MMO 'Project: Gorgon' has an experimental Linux version, it's not bad at all & free for now

Haha It's awesome seeing the split reactions. Guess it's a love or hate kind of game

Hex: Shards of Fate, a digital card game, has unofficial Linux builds available

Start the game and make a char there. After that you'll be able to log in to the forums. It's kind of dumb.

Also, I started work on a patcher for linux. Not completely ready for use yet: https://github.com/oleerik/hex-linux-launcher
