I just wish it had local multiplayer (last time I checked I don't think this was planned).

xuwangDoes the steam controller work well for this one? I have two steam controllers and am looking for good local coop games.
Last I tried it worked (months ago), but I remember having to set up my own mappings. I'll give it a go now and let you know if it's improved

EDIT: Yup, still no native support, but it works reasonably well with the community mapping.

Good enough for me! Thank you, Cybolic.

The community mappings are so useful for the Steam games. Eventually the developers will start making their own mappings for new games. Steam controllers are now popular enough that it will be worth their time. I tried to find data on how many users of steam controllers and found this but cannot interpret it: http://steamspy.com/app/353370

Some thoughts on Shadwen, Frozenbyte's new stealth game available for Linux

QuoteSteam Controller doesn't work in-game at all.

This is unfortunate. I just got a steam controller so I'm trying to understand things that everyone else probably knows. By this statement, do you mean that by default it doesn't work? But it is implied that you can always make a mapping of the controller to the mouse and keyboard yourself, right? And you can always make a mapping of the steam controller to a gamepad right?

So hopefully it is just a matter of time until the community comes up with a good mapping?

GALAK-Z might be my new favourite space shooter on SteamOS & Linux

Thanks for the review. This is my type of game. I got hooked on these types of games since the days of Maelstrom (which is in the Ubuntu repos by the way and is still awesome!). I was a little surprised by the price ($20), but I don't mind paying that much for a high quality game that is in my favorite genre. And also a good opportunity to show support for Linux (it is great to pretend I am supporting a good cause and thus alleviate guilt from playing video games!!!).

Glad to hear it has good steam controller support. This is a must for me nowadays.

MaelraneAny chance being able to play this with the amd open source drivers? (Radeonsi mesa-git or even R600?)

mr-eggThe problem is, on most Linux distributions the default packages for the Nvidia / AMD drivers are WAY out of date for both open source and closed.

were talking 8 months !

Thank you for your great explanation, mr-egg! I really appreciate it. Hopefully has the drivers get better, the gap between one version to the next will not be as large so the drivers from the repos will work well. Maybe that is just wishful thinking though.

LarianThe biggest hurdle people seem to face with Linux is one of the most ironic .. Nvidia drivers should install just like the do on Windows , Mac. There is no good reason for them not too, they install the way they do because the origin of Nvidia on Linux is via production servers.
Even the AMD Catalyst install just like on windows, one click next,next done .. reboot. I cant imagine how many people Fudge up their desktop from the ass backwards way in which you have to install them.

I don't understand (I only use open source drivers so I am ignorant of how to install proprietary). In Ubuntu can't you just go to Additional Drivers and click on "Enable" ?

Or do you mean that the problem is to install the *latest* proprietary? If so, then hopefully with time the stable ones that Ubuntu installs will be updated enough.

Larian@ Segata - Ubuntu is a laggy mess? 14.04 x64 here with Gnome Flashback and I'm gaming all over the place. My issues (when I have them) are all WINE related. Lucky me?

I actually use Ubuntu 15.04 and Unity just fine and am also doing a lot of gaming (but not AAA games yet). No problems ever with Unity. I use Intel and open source drivers though. I think most people who have problems with Unity use NVidia, which of course is also what most gamers use, so I understand that many of them have problems.

My theory is that Jonathon Blow one day started Vim and wasn't able to figure out how to quit from it.
