The Expression Amrilato, a Yuri Visual Novel that teaches some Esperanto has a same-day Linux release on GOG
14 June 2019 at 8:12 pm UTC Likes: 6

Well, i quite dislike visual novel, but i'm also all partial to Esperanto. I've learnt it. I managed at some point to be able to understand radio in esperanto, and i met some amazing people too.

Like, in north of Norway while i was traveling, i met a french man and a russian woman, using Esperanto as the first language at home (they didn't know they speak esperanto both, when they met first). They have a girl, when i met her she was about 14 years old. Esperanto was her first language (there are maybe 1000 to 2000 kids nowadays with EO as a first language). Then, norway, then russia to talk with mom, french to talk with dad, english because many norvegian speak english too, and she was learning spanish, italian and german at school.

SalvatosSomeone decides to make a new language that everyone could speak in common, and now there's just one more language that most people don't speak.

Well, that sounds like someone without any real knowledge of what Esperanto is meant to be, and is, actually.

bidinouNow of course, it's way too late !

Nope, that's like pollution, it's not too late to clean it all, as it's not too late to use a cleverly elaborated language as an international tool, instead of the very unfair english. Before it was french, portugese, later it may be mandarin or zulu, who knows...

Meh.

I love the Commandos games, i played all of them back in their time, but i would much much much prefer a new game, not a remastered version of something i played a lot already.

Steam Marines 2 is coming to Steam for Linux soon, Steam Marines 3 going first-person
10 June 2019 at 2:36 pm UTC

Steam Marines, the first, was quite fun, even if too simplistic.

SM2 is weird, really need a huge improvement in the GUI and in the introduction screens to pick your team. Also gameplay is shallow and needs some work to not feel clunky. In current state, i would not recommend it unless you want to TEST, not PLAY. It has potential, but too many games have that, and fail to deliver, so wait and see...

Well, the money is certainly good... and that's it. RIP good studio.

Insatia, a carnivorous worm simulator is coming to Linux and it's really weird - demo available

I played it maybe 2 years ago already ? From itchio i think. It's really nice actually, very shallow too, but fun enough to worth your time.

Strap in and prepare for more destruction, Brigador Killers is on the way
30 May 2019 at 7:59 am UTC

I love Brigador, one on my favorite game from the last years, really. I didn't find the controls difficult, and i still play it from time to time with the "normal" controls (tank like, i think it's called)...

I hope the new game will keep the free roaming feels of Brigador, and that the story won't make it too linear.

In the survival game 'Vintage Story' you will now need to protect your crops from sneaky Hares

I recommand very much to play with the mod Neolithic, making the game quite awesome as a survival-building-crafting experience.

Ironhide Game Studio's real-time strategy game Iron Marines sees day-1 Linux support
25 May 2019 at 3:36 pm UTC

Alright, i tried it. And Refunded.

I didn't dislike, but i didn't like neither.

It's way too close to a "very simplistic RTS", with quite poor controls over the troops, and even on PC i can see it's for tactile pads at first : trying to move my heroes in the middle of the melee is hard, as the cursor seems to often target an enemy instead of the ground.

Could be nice with this visual and idea of a RTS but with tower defense mind, if it was actually a PC game with a deeper gameplay.

The Linux demo for 'Eagle Island', a very slick action-adventure rogue-lite is out and it's extremely impressive

Ha... A world full of new creatures, unique, etc, says the voice. And the picture shows a guy killing them all. Great !

Game seems nice, anyway.
