They also released the first Penumbra game as open source ( https://github.com/FrictionalGames )... I hope they do the same with the other two (Penumbra: Black Plague and Penumbra Requiem).

I think this article is totally justified just because of the name of the vulnerability!

Keep 'em coming!

Metro Exodus to get a release date for Linux "soon" say 4A Games
28 February 2020 at 5:11 pm UTC Likes: 2

I have to admit I've been boiling with hate over the past year with Metro Exodus' exclusivity crap and I yelled to the seven seas that I'd never buy/play Metro Exodus... That was before they announced it's coming to Linux... Probably the most unexpected piece of Linux news this year for me.

I still hate the exclusivity crap they threw last year to the gaming community, but the native Linux support is certainly a very nice pullback. I guess I'll balance my disapproval/approval with buying this game, but only when there's a considerable sale. I'll support them, but they don't deserve my 100% support.

Hello Games continue fixing up Linux issues for No Man's Sky in Steam Play

I have to say that even when I'm still not sold on the idea of developers relying on Steam Play to cover Linux support, I still appreciate when a developer takes time and resources to at least make that option a good one.

Maybe is not what I really expect from a developer, but I guess is a fair compromise in some cases. Kudos to them.

Godot is the future! (and for that matter, all other REAL open source game engines)

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

Moments like these make me really wish for a crazy developer who publishes a Linux exclusive high-ish profile game!... But sadly, that's VERY unlikely to happen... Although, who knows... I'm starting to learn Godot, maybe I'll be the one who does it in a few years, ;)

I bought the Penumbra series back in 2016 and right after the Half-Life and Portal series, Penumbra, Amnesia and everything Frictional releases is pure gold. A great mix of storytlling, survival horror and puzzle solving, all very well balanced... and best of all, all support Linux natively. Frictional so far deserves all the support!

Valve officially confirm a new version of 'Steam Play' which includes a modified version of Wine
22 August 2018 at 1:27 pm UTC Likes: 5

I'll put it this way... If Valve could do such gigantic effort to make a massive amount of Windows-exclusive games from different developers/companies run on Linux... I'm not interested in giving money to companies like Ubisoft, Bethesda or EA for basically doing NOTHING for us (when is now more than evident that they could). I will gladly buy Windows-exclusive games from small, indie developers that don't have the resources, but I will keep voting with my wallet.

Hey, Liam... Sorry if you already saw my post in Mastodon and just didn't find it interesting enough... I don't know if you just don't check that one frequently (I don't use Twitter or other "mainstream" social networks anymore)... Anyway, I posted about the developer of the cool looking game "Ellen Teaser The Fall" sort of confirming the game on Linux and even looking for beta testers in what seems to be a near-ish future.

Here's the discussion in Steam (for you or anyone interested): https://steamcommunity.com/app/822920/discussions/0/1694917906657130974/
