Paradox to focus on smaller and more frequent updates to Imperator: Rome this year

Recent reviews are far more positive than the overall reviews, so they must be heading in the right direction.

Supernatural post-apocalypse strategic RPG 'Graywalkers: Purgatory' landing on Linux in February

We've all heard that before; been more than a year now on this one:

There have been a few that never even bothered with the promised Linux version after the Windows version tanked (no big loss in those cases, I guess).

Still, I wish them the best - I found the concept interesting enough to back it way back when, after all, and they did have a Linux demo at some point.

Silly me, I thought the "Classic" plan still meant you get all the games; claimed 10 before I realized there were more than the limit this time! At least I wasn't disappointed with what I left out, although I might have been more careful if I had been paying attention.

PixelDropI've never found a good way to sale/trade steam keys that isn't just a massive time sink and not worth it in the long run.

Someone else here suggested barter.vg a while back, and I've gotten some decent trades there.

Thanks to Proton, you can have 'A Date in the Park' in this intriguing free short adventure; some thoughts

I see the same developers have another free game called The Terrible Old Man; anyone tried that one with Proton?

I'm not a big fan of the art style, but the reviews are positive.

Microsoft Teams is now available on Linux

fleskI'm not a .NET developer, so I'm not an authority on the subject, but I know our Microsoft teams are developing most of their applications with .NET Core deployed on Linux these days, so I assume it has most/all of the features that .NET has.

Not all the way there yet, but they are getting much closer. The current Windows-only .NET is going away with the next, fully cross-platform, release:

PhlebiacIt's only the base game, not the definitive edition bundle.
After activating key on Steam it says that's Definitive Edition.

They label the base game that way now, but it's not the bundle. You still have to upgrade to get the rest.

pskosinskiMaybe worth mentioning: even that Humble says Blasphemous is available only for Windows, one can install it with one click on Steam client, so probably it's on Steam's whitelist of games which can be run through Proton without issues. I was surprised.

It doesn't list Proton in the Steam client, so it must be the native version they have been testing.

bacattasteam keys ?

Yes, they still are (mostly) Steam keys. Sometimes there is also a DRM-free download also, and if the game isn't on Steam at all it's usually a DRM-free download (with occasional exceptions that are well noted, like Overwatch).

bacattaShadow of the Tomb Raider as a Linux version or is it only the "definitive edition" ?

It's only the base game, not the definitive edition bundle.

PangaeaI'd definitely welcome a DRM Free competitor that cares about Linux. I loved GOG back in the days, but they have changed a lot since then, so there is less reason to be faithful. Probably the only reason they began with Linux at all was that Steam did it, and they've been dragging their feet about it ever since.

They dragged their feet from the start:

Liam DaweThe perils of using closed source stuff for something like a UI, they've now been given the source

Hopefully they will submit patches upstream (and they will get accepted!), so anyone else using this can also benefit.
