Project Zomboid, wish the multiplayer was there already but it's still a lot of fun solo with the new animations in beta :)

Valve drops support for SteamVR on macOS to focus on Linux & Windows
1 May 2020 at 11:39 am UTC Likes: 5

How bad I feel for Mac users, it's Apple sticking in their bubble doing a disservice to their uses and shifting progress to Linux when it comes to gaming. Feral and Unity do Metal ports, but Valve on the other hand want to invest in Vulkan, even with the help of MoltenVK, but no help from Apple. Similar to dropping 32-bit support abruptly – they seem to want to get prepared for inevitable drop of 32-bit altogether (with things steam linux runtime and leveraging more things off the client - chat, new library…) and for Mac they released a 64-bit client, but when it comes to rushing to port all their older games that's too much, which was the case for Feral, Aspyr and many other games as well.

How-to: upscale old games on Linux

I think the same can be achieved with gamescope? This DXVK discussion led me to this idea, though I didn't manage to figure out how exactly achieve this on my Wayland (sway) display, but maybe I didn't try hard enough (sadly gamescope lacks documentation).

If you want more gore in the GZDoom and Zandronum engines try the 'Bolognese Gore Mod'

I wonder how it works with things like The Adventures of Square :P

What have you been playing recently and what do you think about it?

Spec Ops: The Line; I'm finally getting to complete this after hearing probably too much (spoilers!), and I'm surprised how well it runs given it's just OpenGL :)

Receiver, the experimental FPS from Wolfire Games had a big update recently (updated)

I was pretty sure I saw some update some time ago, just as I decided to download it – it's great game to fill my gun porn needs after Escape from Tarkov stopped working due to Battleye update! (and it's native)

Going where no Steam Play has gone before with Elite Dangerous

Like I said, I've came back to the game with my wife too, both bought Horizon DLC – .NET was a little pain to set up initially, but the game runs fine afterwards! o7 - CMDR Faalagorn

Edit: someone (some of you probably?) was writing about a Linux squadron on forums – if anyone makes one, I'm all for joining it!

Eliza from Zachtronics is a Visual Novel that's worth your time

Funny how Eliza is a name of one of the first interactive programs that was written for exactly this purpose

Guess it's time to pop back to Elite; heck maybe I even buy the DLC some day later on, as I onlt have the base game :)
