Humble Strategy Bundle 2019 is out and it's another good choice for Linux players
16 March 2019 at 12:02 pm UTC

Bought it for Ashes, even though it's not here yet! Have most of the other games, including Civ VI, but still bought the full bundle

The Talos Principle has a new beta with an upgraded Serious Engine, removes OpenGL in favour of Vulkan

Awesome! I was surprised by how poor the performance was with Vulkan before, but they were working against a moving target when they did the first version so it is understandable that the performance might be sub-par because of that. Hopefully this makes a big difference! Looking forward to seeing benchmarks, since I've already finished the game
Might try it out a little though!

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

ShmerlWhere are their bugs filed to Mesa? If they are having Vulkan issues (rather than engine issues), they should file bugs, how would anyone know about that otherwise to address them?

I agree, it would be great if Stardock would cooperate with the Mesa developers, and join forces to benchmark both Mesa and the engine, to find the bottlenecks and improve on them. It would probably be a good idea to do this sooner than later, long before the game is in a "finished state", to decrease the cost for the Stardock developers to port the game to Linux.

The number of Linux gamers on Steam continues to grow, according to Valve

I would be so happy if that damn number would just increase to 5%. I think that above that, it would really make a difference.

If you enjoy our content, we would appreciate your support!

I just started supporting the site yesterday, via PayPal monthly. I've left Patreon because of their latest issues with their supporters, so PayPal was the best alternative for me. I've never tried liberapay, even though I really like the name.

More updates on Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation with Vulkan for Linux

I'm still looking forward to this a lot! Finally a game on Linux that is perfect for benchmarking. See Dan Baker's GDC presentations for more in depth info.
I hope their work together with the driver devs really manage to improve the driver optimizations as well. We need great games to really push the drivers and find the bottlenecks.

I was thinking about buying the Star Dock Humble Bundle since they're working on the Linux support, but I'll rather buy Escalation at full price when they actually deliver the product (even at a beta stage).

Double Fine release the first official Psychonauts 2 trailer

I'm surprised by how low-fidelity it looks. I've been watching their youtube videos and followed the development and thought it looked better in those. At least when it comes to the videos, perhaps not actual game play. It's like they took the old models and just put them in the new game engine. The lighting is beautiful, but the meshes/models are a bit 'meh'.
