XCOM2 Long War 2
Can't seem to step away from this game.

PhiladelphusPretty fun! I love the new archaeological excavations; they're like much more involved, multi-step anomalies. I also like the sound of the mega-structure rework, but it'll be a few hours till I can actually try it out.

I found it pretty disappointing. Although, relic reverse engineering is the most disappointing of all. It's all just very shallow and don't even get me started on how everything is written in a tiny font that is very hard on your eyes that it really discourages reading the stuff.

WHAT THE GOLF? is another Linux game that's now going to the Epic Store first

timgarbosDeveloper here. Totally get your concerns, but we are not trying to keep anything secret. Of course, we care about our backers and that's why we tell them the news before the general public. The news will be more public and is already publicly being discussed on our Discord.

Anyways, thanks for keeping up to date. I'll let you know once we have Linux news.

ROFL, we care for you, so we will tell you how we are screwing you, while we do it, because we care for you.

FedaI went back to playing it two days ago and it is fun but it still has terrible UI scaling. It's hard to believe that they haven't fixed that after 3 years.

Try out the amazing UI Overhaul 1080p & 1440p mod.

Thanks, I'll check it out. I did find that they have experimental UI scaling. I increased the size by 20% but haven't noticed a difference. I'll have to try again with different scaling.

The dev of "Marble It Up!" had intriguing words to say about the native vs Steam Play argument for a Linux version

Steamplay is good for random games that came with bundles or old games that don't work properly on Linux but I will never purchase a windows only game.
I didn't even use proton until a couple of weeks ago when I used it to install Anomaly 2 because Linux version is outdated and doesn't work. The game runs perfectly with Proton and I am grateful that it exists but it will never be enough to make me buy a game just because it runs on Proton.

Kerbal Space Program is getting a big expansion named Breaking Ground, releasing this week

soulsourceWhich broken Fonts are you talking about? I've been playing for years, and never noticed any broken fonts.

I bought the game a couple of years ago and it was missing most of the text, making it unplayable. They were supposedly using proprietary Microsoft fonts that you had to jump through hoops to get on Linux.

I haven't bothered with it since.

smantz0rZHey guys,

Really sorry about the delay. We were supposed to start our Linux beta test last week (thanks to KS backers and some awesome folks from GoL Discord) but everything got ruined. We ended up having to upgrade engine versions last second to fix a major flaw and then the game would always think it was running in VR on Unix when a headset wasn't connected.... We figured it's best not to punk around and make sure Unix systems aren't completely wrecked. Hoping to start Linux beta by early next week and get the native Linux version out as soon as humanly possible.

Any questions please track me down. Send hatemail to dpanter.

I backed this game ok KS what seems an eternity ago. A little bit longer won't be a problem. You how no idea how much I appreciate that you didn't sell out to Epic (don't know if they tried) and are sticking with your promise to deliver Linux support.

No Man's Sky runs very nicely on Linux with Steam Play, huge online feature update and VR support coming

stretch611Edit: Here's more food for your thoughts, on our PC Info survey (see stats here) only about 6% of the 500+ people who did the Steam Play question said they wouldn't use it.

This part is a bit problematic. I would use it with a game I already have, like something that was part of a bundle and Windows only. On the other hand, I would never buy a game that is not Linux native just because it will run on Steam Play.

As far as No Man's Sky is concerned, it looks like a fun game. My desktop wallpaper is a screenshot from that game, but I will not buy it, regardless of price, if it doesn't have a native client. I would rather give that money to developers who support Linux. If others choose to do otherwise, I don't see that as a problem. People have the right to spend their hard earned money (or ill begotten gains) any way they like.

I do think that this article is perfectly appropriate for the site, since it is ultimately Linux related.
