FMV adventure Dark Nights with Poe and Munro released for Linux

Quoting: robvvI hadn't played an FMV game since Phantasmagoria

Ah, that one and Gabriel Knight: A Beast Within were awesome! Sierra didn't make very many before they switched over to cartoon style animation (too expensive to make, probably), but I thought it was some of their best work. The Tex Murphy games were also great.

Aspyr started doing this (remasters, publishing) shortly before they all but disappeared. :(
Let's hope Feral survives better than they did.

Quoting: WorMzyAwesome, added to my wishlist so hopefully Steam tells me when Linux support is added

Wouldn't that be nice...

Retro FPS Ion Fury getting an Aftershock expansion this Summer

Quoting: WJMazepasI really loved this game. Last year was the first time i played Duke Nukem and Ion Fury and really enjoyed both of then so now i want to try every FPS made on this engine

There were tons of games made with the Build engine, but honestly almost all of them were garbage. The exceptions were Duke Nukem, Shadow Warrior, Blood, and Redneck Rampage (unless someone knows something I missed).

Microsoft reportedly have Discord in their sights to acquire

Quoting: PhiladelphusI'll grudgingly admit they've managed not to run GitHub into the ground yet

They put Nat Friedman in charge of it; he's an old GNOME hacker, that ended up at Microsoft as part of the Ximian/Xamarin acquisition.

The Humble Daedalic 15th Anniversary MEGA Game Bundle is now live

Quoting: soulsourceLong story short: That's a bundle I would buy immediately, if I wouldn't already own most of the games...

I was surprised to find that I already own every single one of them... :-)

I haven't played all of them, but I also love the Deponia series; Night of the Rabbit was what I played most recently, and it worked just fine via Proton. I'll have to get around to the "Dark Eye" ones; thanks for the recommendation.

Chilled-out first-person puzzler Faraway: Director's Cut is out now

Quoting: tuubiIf you're looking for similar games on Linux, both Quern and Haven Moon are worth playing.

Must agree; both are great, although Haven Moon is way shorter (about 1/7th the play time here).

Quoting: PhlebiacA few games I've tried it on (that worked before) exit immediately after starting; anyone else seeing that?
I noticed similar behaviour on Arch after upgrading FAudio from 21.01 to 21.02. More precisely, I noticed that after the regular package upgrade no game in Steam would run.

Hmm... interesting. I do see the libFAudio package did update to 21.02 near the same time. Something I can check into further, thanks.
