May 31st, 2012 by Crusader

…huh?

Oh.

Where was I?

Oh hey, a new HUMBLE BUNDLE! It feels like I say this every time, but this may be THE BEST ONE YET:

For two weeks, you can pay whatever you want to get these DRM-free games on Windows, Mac, and Linux: PsychonautsLIMBOAmnesia: The Dark Descent, and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. If you choose to pay more than the average price, you will also receive Bastion! Each game comes with its soundtrack in both lossless (FLAC) and MP3 formats.

Each of the games can optionally be redeemed on Steam, and bundle buyers can also choose to support the Child’s Play Charity and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, two non-profits doing excellent work in the name of gamers worldwide.

All of these games have received accolades for pushing the envelope in their respective genres and delivering incredible storytelling and gameplay. All of the games are debuting on Linux, and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is new on Mac.

Two Guys from Andromeda’s SpaceVenture

May 19th, 2012 by Crusader

Thanks to jaggerz for sending in the following!

You’ve covered Kickstarter projects for Linux games before (Vigrior, and coryholl’s big list, for example)… recently there has been a HUGE renaissance of old-school game developers bringing their goods to our favorite open-source OS.

Currently, the creators of the old-school Sierra On-Line Space Quest series, Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe (“The Two Guys from Andromeda”) have a campaign going for a spiritual successor to the beloved Space Quest series! It looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun, and the Linux port is right there in their committment, from the beginning, no overfunding goal required.

These games are remembered for their self-deprecating humor, fourth-wall breaking metagame jokes, popular culture and science fiction references, and for turning gaming cliches inside out!

This campaign is also novel in a couple of cool ways; one, they are planning to turn HTML5 prototype demos at
each $100,000 mark; they’ve hit the first within two days, and release them at no cost on Google’s Chrome
App Market. The first HTML5 demo plays great with the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS packaged Chromium browser (I’m not currently using Chrome). They’ve also already polled for the second prototype to ask backers what they want to see next. I’ve never heard of any campaign so interactive in that way, supporting Linux out of the gate, and using standards-compliant web technology for truly cross-platform gaming demos!

Currently the project is called “Two Guys SpaceVenture“, as the final game title has not been announced yet.

  • Support routines for Internationalized Domain Names.
  • Various bug fixes.

infraRed let us know about his game project, gFifteen:

Razer Nostromo Linux Drivers 1.0

May 2nd, 2012 by Crusader

The Razer Nostromo is a gaming mini-keyboard that provides remapping of keys to any keyboard or mouse event. This is great; however, the drivers are only available for OSX and Windows. Not anymore, the jnostromo project aims to provide GNU/Linux drivers that provides E-Sport legal keymappings for Linux gamers everywhere. The feature set is similar to the official drivers with the elimination of macro’s.

Download the amd64 drivers here

Note, 32-bit drivers will be available in up-coming releases. Also, the configuration gui is cross platform capable. So check it out!

Thanks Conzar!

FleetCOMM : Operation Vigrior

May 2nd, 2012 by Crusader

Thanks to arvd for sending this in!

FleetCOMM : Operation Vigrior is a Kickstarter indie game worth checking out. It’s a real-time strategy game introducing a novel gameplay mechanic. Instead of fumbling over disorganized blobs of units, the player controls a synchronized squad of ships.

They’ve been very supportive of Linux game development; they already have a Linux64 build out on Desura. The complete game can be obtained with a $10 Kickstarter pledge. For $15 you get the game and all DLC, expansions, future editions, etc. forever.

A live demo can be found here:
