The adventure platformer 'Chasm' has finally released with same-day Linux support

cc2600No drm-free build on humble yet, but the icon is there so I imagine it is on its way.
Nice! It wasn't there when I looked earlier today.

NotSoQTAny info about GOG? Can't check the comments in the latest Kickstarter updates, backers only.
Not at launch, apparently. Maybe later. (in case the link doesn't bring you to the right forum page, you want to find post#8530)

Also, wasn't it supposed to be available DRM-free and Steam-free on Humble?

Procedurally-generated adventure 'MoonQuest' will be coming to Linux

liamdaweAh interesting, not one we covered before so didn't think to look at Kickstarter.

Well, it used to be called "Moonman" back then.

Quote...and it's coming to Linux.
It bloody well better be, after they promised a Linux version during the Kickstarter (and so I backed it). xD

The GOG weekly sale has some rather nice Linux games for cheap

I'll just keep the OT running.

liamdaweI would say we're about due for a proper HIB.
Don't really know about that... The last Humble Indie Bundle (#19) took place between 27 March and 10 April, so it's been 3 months without a proper HIB. By old standards it'd sure be about time for another one, but HIB#18 happened on May 2017 and HIB#17 on August 2016, so unless there's a dramatic change in the recent trend I wouldn't expect a new HIB until Christmas or next year. :\

It seems to me like Humble are increasingly moving away from their old bundle model and more into the monthly subscription one.

The fun top-down shooter State of Anarchy: Master of Mayhem recently had a big content update

QuoteYou can find it now on Steam, also on itch.io but it's not clear if it's up to date there.
Unfortunately it isn't. No new builds have been updated there in 2 months. Time to contact the dev, I guess.

Crossing Souls, an action-adventure inspired by the 80's with cartoon cutscenes now has a demo
7 February 2018 at 8:52 pm UTC

QuoteTurns out, it was a game funded on Kickstarter way back in 2014. Turns out it's a game our old contributor muntdefems covered here when doing a roundup of crowdfunding projects. Naturally it's easy to forget stuff written in a roundup years ago…

Hahahaha, don't feel bad for not remembering it, Liam. I had completely forgot about it myself, and it was only while playing the demo that I had a strong feeling of déjà-vu and remembered we covered it in The Funding Crowd.

Also, I don't think I wrote the bit about this game back then. Looks more like flesk's or scaine's style to me, so credit where it's due.

Hollow Knight: Gods & Glory, a third free content update has been announced
1 February 2018 at 12:47 pm UTC

RoosterSomeone remind me.. Did Hollow Knight have a first day Linux support? Or did it come later?

About 6-7 weeks later.

Pixeljam are crowdfunding Dino Run 2, the developer answered some of my concerns

CheesenessOut of interest, what problems have you had (beyond the original Dino Run/Dino Run DX not shipping for Linux on Steam)?

It's not only Dino Run on Steam, and the Linux support for their games elsewhere is rather inconsistent: e.g. Potatoman on itch.io and on Humble.

Also, and unfortunately like many others, once they made it into Steam (hah, remember when getting into Steam was an arduous task? ) they basically abandoned their DRM-free builds on sites such as Desura and IndieGameStand and didn't update them any more.

QuotePixeljam are currently crowdfunding Dino Run 2...

Not for the first time, by the way: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pixeljam/dino-run-2

Dunno... I'm not a big fan of Pixeljam after their iffy Linux support. Let's hope it will all change after leaving Flash behind.

On the other hand, setting a base goal of $20k, but considering the much higher $65k stretch goal as their 'target goal', kind of rubs me the wrong way. I don't think I'll be backing this one.
