Oh cool! "Spell or High Water": The Game! This look like it could evolve into something quite fun.

Btw, do they have to pay license fees to id/Bethesda?
I know that the Quake engine is oss for a long time.
But how about commercial projects?

Well, Steel Storm: Burning Retribution was based on the Quake engine as well and didn't need to pay. I'm fairly certain that since the code is free as in free and licensed before Bethesda got involved with id that there's no risk of needing to pay a license fee.

I will definitely be keeping an eye on this, but I'm not really feeling the monster designs (the original zombies in Quake looked creepier than this) and the sprite trees in the beginning just look odd in the Quake engine.

Intense looking indie horror title 'WOUNDED' is coming to Linux

This really gives me a "Clive Barker's Silent Hill" vibe; hopefully it can live up to at least one of those connections!
Also, I have to wonder if licensing a Wham! track is really worth it on an indie budget?

"no plan for a Linux version right now" ... "for now we are focused on the PC version." ...uhmm, but... isn't that the same thing? ;)

dpanterHave had this on ignore for a long time... read this article, watched the trailer, read some comments... still felt like ignore was the right choice.

Then I watched this review and immediately wishlisted it.

Nice review! Convinced me to buy it

NBlood, an open source port of the classic FPS 'Blood' using EDuke32

Could you add a mention to the first paragraph that Voidpoint are the developers of Ion Maiden? Without that info, the paragraph is a bit obtuse.

Intel begins talking up their open source efforts for their upcoming dedicated GPU
18 February 2019 at 4:38 pm UTC

If it can match my current GTX 1080 Ti, then having a GPU that's properly supported by open drivers would likely be enough for me to make the switch to Intel. I'm quite looking forward to see what they've got brewing.

That is quite some impressively atmospheric pixel art! I look forward to playing this one.

NOTE: The demo seems to be gone now.

Aurora: The Lost Medallion, a sci-fi 2D point & click adventure has a demo out with Linux support

Nice to see a game developed in Greece! It's pretty damn tough running a small business down here, due to some insane laws/taxes regarding small companies, so I really hope these guys are successful in their endeavour.
