Combo-based hunting & puzzle-based cooking game Battle Chef Brigade is now on GOG, some thoughts
15 December 2017 at 10:19 pm UTC

starfarerThis game is awesome. First I was reluctant to buy it because I didn't think it's on Linux but after I read that it is on this website I grabbed it (and I watched the WTF by TotalBiscuit).

It's really good. I didn't know I'd enjoy it so much because I don't normally play platformer-brawlers (the excellent Dust was one of a few exceptions) and match-three games. This game does it very well.

The only complaint that I have, and this is what TotalBiscuit also said, is that some of the art seems a little bit unfinished. As if they didn't complete the drawing. But this is such a minor thing that it doesn't matter and that it should not deter anyone from getting and playing this. Trust me, it is absolutely worth it.

I'm also really happy that I can play it on my T530 with only an Intel HD 4000.

The only thing I want is more content. More story content, that is. Unfortunately there is no replay value but I'd really welcome some more DLC. Luckily there are daily Cook-off challenges so that is something.

Actually it was released without Linux support, but it was added soon after release.

2D horror 'Corpse Party' is now available for Linux on GOG, some thoughts

RanceJusticeThis is a rare Japanese developed title on Linux. I should mention that I was encouraged to seek out this title because one of the developers porting it was also active on the "Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky" Steam forum - she posted under the name "Sara". On this thread requesting Linux support, Sara was very attentive and forthcoming with why some of the older titles would be unlikely to receive a Linux port, but mentioned Corpse Party as one that was coming to Linux because of the porters' interest in doing so.

This kind of honest developer feedback for Linux users is another great reason to support Corpse Party. Likewise as she mentions, showing interest from the Linux community is important especially in Japan where Linux is less likely to be on the PC game dev radar; many companies are new to PC gaming as a whole, having developed near exclusively for console in the past.

In any event if you want a well regarded spooky, indie, pixel art gem try out Corpse Party! You'll be supporting the kind of porting staff that are very friendly to the Linux community too!

Its so sad Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky will not have Linux support.

BTW, Corpse Party is 35% off on GOG right now.

Good they still working on this game. Gotta check on Humble Library for update.
Last time i played it, though, i found game to be quite unbalanced and overloaded with micromanagement. It (was) kinda hard to build stable production chains and constantly i had either lack of some stuff or excess of others. But, overall, it was very nice game to play.

P.S. They already uploaded update to humble. nice!

DaiKaiser93Well, that was quick..
Yes, thats another indication, that port release is controlled, at least in some cases, mostly by developer. If one have no question about giving it to GOG we see it (Corpse party, Signal from Tolva) in matter of days, if not...well. For example Coma is still missing (and that about very recent ports), but still GOG is rather impressive lately.
