Seven years later Kentucky Route Zero is finally complete with the release of Act V

Quoting: scaineI played Act 1 all the way through in 2013 and was vagely surprised, at the end, to discover that it was a episodic release. Sadly, I never went back to it. I suppose episodic releases only really work if you can keep up momentum and stick to a schedule. There's no point in me buying Act 2 onwards now - I've long forgotten what Act I was about!
You don't need to buy anything, it was only ever sold as a complete package. You own the whole game.

Are they impossible to refund?

KRZ is one of my favorite and one of the best story-driven games and has been consistently absolutely worth the waiting. I'm very very excited.

vkBasalt, an open source Vulkan post processing layer for Contrast Adaptive Sharpening

Quoting: qptain NemoI don't care about sharpening but this is great, we need some post-processing injectors on Linux. I was actually just messing with the latest version of ReShade. It works in Wine (at least the opengl part) and it's really great.

Same. I've had some success using ReShade with Dragon's Dogma, although the installer does not work, I had to copy a bunch of files.

Installing and using vkBasalt actually was a lot simpler and seems way more performant. So I'm eager to see more filters, maybe some basic colour profile stuff next. That and perhaps a way to mess with it while it's running. For people who like to do screenarchery.
The installer depends on .net so I managed to get it working in a prefix where I have .net up to 4 installed. Doesn't seem to run with Mono though, unfortunately.

Looks like Beyond a Steel Sky, the sequel to the classic Beneath a Steel Sky is coming to Linux

Good to know BaSS 2 is coming to Linux. I've been wishing for a 3D sequel to BaSS for the longest time. And now that it's coming... I don't really like the way it looks. I really hope they'll improve on it.

Quoting: EikeShould I (liking point and click adventures in general) play "Beneath a Steel Sky"?

Well, it's free. :) I hated the voice acting, but the game is great. The first time I played was the Amiga version which had no voice acting. Then later tried it voiced and just noped out of there fast.
Agree completely, when I finally checked out the voiced version I was like "you've got to be kidding me".
