Wow, that was one of my favourite games growing up. I even made a windows sound scheme based on in-game sounds :)

Serfs is a new in-development medieval RTS that looks promising, it just added Linux support

Looks great and feels like good old Settlers. Downloaded Linux demo from the website and it just worked on my Fedora 32, so looks very promising, gonna keep an eye on it.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York for Linux is now uncertain

Quoting: TheSyldat
Quoting: Lord_PhoenixI don't know, to be honest, this is barely a mobile game, so will anyone miss it if it won't make it to the platform?
How about you learn to keep your " Gamer™ " snobism to yourself.

Visual Novels are enjoyed by lots of people and are functionally video games versions of a Choose Your Own Adventure book.
Not everything needs to be "for you" you know ...

And yes if they indeed decide to ninja smoke bomb away from porting it on Linux this game will be missed by some.

I know I'll miss it, was very much looking forward to play it.

I was actually genuinely asking and was not trying to sound like a snob. It's obviously a personal preference and I guess I never considered myself as a fan of interactive novels. Again, *maybe* on a mobile platform, but not a desktop/laptop. Good to know there is a market for this type of games.

Insurgency: Sandstorm no longer getting Linux/Mac support or a campaign mode

I'm really disappointed here, it's an amazing game, I've played somewhat to the extent of local play with 4 bots and was really looking forward to Linux version.

QuoteOf course, this is a reminder not to buy a game before it lands on Linux.

Truly have to be new moto from now on... Given current pace I don't think we'll see any AAA games natively on Linux any time soon.

Such a shame...

Two Point Hospital released with same-day Linux support

For me it crashes on start under Fedora KDE and nvidia 396.45 driver :( Getting tons of errors when running steam via terminal.

Valve's Steam Play should work better today, as DXVK was left in debug mode causing a performance drop

Hm, Doom runs solid 60 fps for me on vulkan even with that...interesting.

The Linux beta of Arma 3 has been updated to 1.80, compatible with Windows again for a time

Since linux version is *mostly* behind of windows version it would be great to see a dedicated linux server maybe? Provided we there are enough of interested people :) Since last big update when they've switched to 64-bit client I enjoy Arma 3 so much, it's a great game all shortcomings considered.

@khansei 90% of GOG games works on wine. You can use PlayOnLinux, they even have presets for GOG games.
