Tesla vs Lovecraft, another good-looking top-down shooter from 10tons Ltd that's releasing for Linux soon

They mention local coop - I am sold! Would make waiting for Tower57 more pleasant, haha

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

I have replied on their Tweet, but I dream about Shenmue 3 sooo much. Soooo much. I know its still in development but should release in 2018. Having Linux version would be just awesome. They are using UE4 and releasing also on PS4, so maybe it would not be that hard?

Layers of Fear with the Soundtrack is currently free on the Humble Store

Amazon Lumberyard game engine is no longer going to support Linux, not enough demand

mishugashuHow disappointing. Why do they expect the chicken to come before the egg? If everyone supported Linux, Linux would be a much larger target audience. I can't even imagine how many potential Linux gamers are playing on Windows because of the lack of support.

But there in lies the rub, we need a big time publisher with a big time triple a game to do a day one release on linux so there is no advantage to being on windows. I know there are big ish publishers supporting linux with some of their titles but landing something like COD/BF/Witcher 3 or no way linux companies like Bethesda or Rockstar launching games on linux, would love to see Red Dead 2 but i doubt its even coming to pc at this point.

This is purely hypothethical, unreal comment.. but just imagine RockStar decides to release Red Dead Redemption 2 on consoles and PC Linux only. How would the world react? Would there be unity among the PC windows players to switch over to Linux or rather cry, that rockstar newest engine iteration focuses on Linux instead of windows?

Do You know if it will have local coop finally? They added it to Victor Vran, but here silence so far.

Aspyr Media state they are looking at ways to improve Civilization VI performance on Linux

shouldn't they say they are evaluating the feasibility of improvements (;
with love to devs (:

GDC sounds like it will be fun this year with AMD, NVIDIA, Khronos, Unity & Croteam all talking Vulkan
8 February 2017 at 8:48 pm UTC

Thanks guys for all the answers. As much as I agree on many points my doubt is in the fact of similarity of DX12 with Vulkan. When a dev wants to target new tech, they have to learn anyway and so experience with previous dx version should not matter that much for the choice between dx or vulkan. What really convinces me is Xone and HLSL issues... but even then being a dev who thinks about the prospective future choosing not to focus on Vulkan looks like a simply wrong decision (in case You are not MS studio ofc).

[edit] Oh and one more thing. As MS seems to care for unified gaming enviroment between win10 and xone - don't they plan to implement vulkan also for their console?

Might be a silly question, but can any of You advice what is the reason for dev now to study and learn directx12 instead of focusing on Vulkan? What benefit could there be to choose dx12 over Vulkan nowadays? Any super support from ms? Incentive? Is it that vulkan is available on windows, but not x1? I would think having limited manpower resources its always better to go 100% into Vulkan to reach easily more devices/ bigger market. Am I wrong here?
