Jack_BlackI have started playing The Walking Dead: Road to Survival again. It is an Android-App, that I am running with Genymotion and a few adjustments. Great game, high potential for addiction. Cool that Android-Emulation on Linux is possible, too.
So, you are running an android app through Genymotion, a windows app that you are running on WINE?!?
Genymotion is using virtualbox and runs on Windows, Linux, mac. As long as you are not using it for anything work related you can use it with a restrictive personal license without paying. Not every game/app works too well though, and you get sample ads rather than real ones.

Ahh, I did not know that. I thought they were windows only.

In the past, I have used the Android-x86 Project. An open source project to port Android to x86 processors. It can installed stand alone on a PC, or run in a virtual machine. Unfortunately, there is a limit to the applications that run on it.

  • Particle Fleet: Emergence - being a HUGE fan of Creeper World III I just had to play this. What should I say - played through the campaign in one day... probably not going to play it again since while it is not a bad game it is just so much less than Creeper World 3.
I enjoyed Particle Fleet, but yes, I also agree that Creeper World 3 was better.

Good News, the devs at Knuckle Cracker currently have Creeper World 4 in development. It is essentially a 3d version of Creeper World 3. While linux is not listed on the Steam Page, I believe I read somewhere that they said that being a unity game, that they will bring it to linux.

Edit: According to the developer's website it is planned to come to Linux, just no guarantee until they start testing it more.
QuoteNo, it just means I’ve not fully tested the current build on Linux and I like to be conservative with what I say. I have tested some on linux, and it is working for the most part (in opengl3.3). I have not tested using Vulkan, etc. It’s my intention to release on Linux, I just can’t say with 99.9% certainty yet that I will, hence leaving it off the store page for the present.

AnanaceWith Factorio you sit down to do one thing, only to then realize that suddenly four hours have passed.
Dirt Rally doesn't rob you of the time comprehension as much, you really feel every second when you're busy wrestling your car around the track.
Ahh, Factorio... probably my favorite... I can't wait, about a week and a half until 0.17 is released.

I was playing Pathfinder:Kingmaker. I was enjoying it until I hit chapter 2. Once they spent a god-awful time explaining all the kingdom management tedium (and still only covering the basics), it completely turned me off of the game. I'm not sure I will ever go back.

I have been playing a jewel of a tower defense game also, Elemental War. I bought it during the Winter Sale and already have about 50 hours on it. I really enjoy it. (my Steam review)

PatolaYeah, I double what Linuxak said, I am gaming nonstop now. Maybe GoL should add a section for treating gaming addiction?
Why treat it? I just OD constantly.

QuoteIn hindsight, it probably wasn't the best idea to settle next to a volcano.

Why not? Look how famous it made Pompeii...

Another little update on Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation for Linux

It is good to see Stardock supporting linux and hopefully this will be the first of many.

This is much better then the trend of others that are only "supporting" SteamPlay.

Iron Marines from Ironhide Game Studio will be coming to Linux

I have all 3 Kingdom Rush games on Steam. I have 2 of them on Android. I'm sure that I will have Iron Marines as well after it is released.

Six years ago today, Steam was released for Linux - Happy Birthday

Odd... This must be some type of coincidence because it can't possibly be related to the story.

But according to the badge on my profile page, my years of service on Steam will hit 6 years within the next two months. How odd is that being so close to 6 years of Steam on linux?
