Unity attempt to clarify new install fees as developers revolt
14 September 2023 at 11:34 am UTC Likes: 4

I don't understand why they just don't go with the same model as Unreal Engine has (maybe they have a new one now, I didn't check for some time) and if the game makes some amount of money, they need to pay from each sold copy. The installs amount seems really strange as a metric.

What a ride, I remember using Steam even on Windows and that's plenty of years ago.

Happy birthday Steam! I hope you will support Linux in future as you do now!

I'm playing almost entirely on Steam Deck, so I got used to Gamepad controls.

I noticed that this even influence how I'm choosing the games to play. If it's difficult to play it on Steam Deck controls, I just try it and go to another one. But I don't mind playing turn-based strategies on Steam Deck, the mouse emulation is usually enough to be able to play. :-)

Epic Games' new exclusive deal gives devs 100% for 6 months

Quoting: ridgeUltimately, a Steam exclusive sucks as much as an Epic exclusive.

I never heard about Steam doing exclusives, it's on developer/distributor to decide where they want to sell. In case of Epic they are forcing the developers/distributors to not sell anywhere else.

I'm now playing Warhammer 40k: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters on Steam Deck, it is marked as unsupported (because of graphics settings), but with little tweaking it's completely playable.

Epic Games' new exclusive deal gives devs 100% for 6 months

I don't like Epic for how they view Linux and give no support (actually they do opposite). So I will not support them till they change this behavior (I already have plenty of games from GOG or Steam and not enough time to play them).

The exclusivity is also bad thing, but good move to give more to devs for some time. I wonder if the exclusivity is for 6 months or more.

I'm wondering if this would improve the Steam Deck APU performance as well.

I was wondering why the game that worked two days ago doesn't work now. This explains the issue.

I like how the Steam Deck is showing more and more even in mainstream announcements. Such a good time to be a Linux gamer. :-)

The Trese Brothers are great developers. I hope they will have success with this game, they deserve it.
