  • Try the first demo of the dino MMO Path of Titans, we have some testing keys to give away

    After Alderon Games successful crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo for their dino themed survival MMO Path of Titans, the developer reached out to gather more Linux testers.

    They've released a first demo and it's currently quite limited with the character creation ability the only thing possible. However, once a month they will be deploying a big new feature for it like the ability to run around, AI, quests and so on.

  • Steam Play passes six thousand Windows games playable on Linux, according to ProtonDB

    On the day of Steam Play hitting the big one year anniversary (August 21st), it seems another milestone has been reached in terms of compatibility.

    According to ProtonDB, the handy (but unofficial) tracking website, over six thousand games are now working. At time of writing, exactly 6,023 "games work" against the 9,134 total of games that currently have user reports to see if they run or not. That's quite an impressive number!

    It's worth noting though, that with little over nine thousand games currently reported, Steam does host well over thirty thousand so there's a huge amount that hasn't yet been tested.

    How about a question for you to answer in the comments: What does Steam Play mean to you? I'll start.

  • Rocket Pass 4 is coming to Rocket League on August 28th, with a new rally-inspired Battle-Car

    The fourth Rocket Pass is due to arrive in Rocket League soon, along with the start of Competitive Season 12.

    For those of you wanting to rank up and ensure you get the best rewards possible, Season 11 is ending really soon on August 27th. A day later, Rocket Pass 4 is going to be released.

  • Roguelike Stay Safe: Labyrinth of the Mad now has a Linux beta, sounds quite unique

    Stay Safe: Labyrinth of the Mad from Yellowcake Games is a roguelike with plenty of random generation, including an interesting way of generating the world.

    When starting a new game, the developer said you can use files on your PC or a combination of keyboard/gamepad button presses to generate the dungeon, items and gems. That's not all that makes it somewhat unique, there's also another feature where you will come across a copy of other players. It's a single-player game, so you're not directly facing other people only a shadow of what they had. Although that feature is entirely optional.

  • OBS Studio has a fresh release candidate available for a major new version

    OBS Studio, the free and open source video livestreaming and recording software is my one and only stop for video capturing and it continues to mature.

    The upcoming 24.0 release has a first release candidate now available and it has some fun new features. For starters, you can now actually pause recordings to easily cut away parts you know you don't need. I've tested that and it works perfectly. It does need you to have separated encoders for streaming and recording though, so you can't have the recording encoder set to "same as stream".

From 0 To 6000: Celebrating One Year Of Proto

  • From 0 To 6000: Celebrating One Year Of Proton, Valve's Brilliant Linux Gaming Solution

    This week, Valve's Proton turns one year old, and it has unarguably propelled the notion of gaming on Linux further than I would have thought possible. It has led to noticeably more mainstream press and YouTube coverage of desktop Linux, including this gem from Linus Tech Tips titled "Linux Gaming Finally Doesn't Suck."

    [...]

    Has Linux gaming finally reached parity with Windows? In terms of total number of games playable, not remotely. ProtonDB -- which crowdsources hardware information from Linux gamers and compatibility ratings -- has collected reports for roughly 9000 of the more than 30,000 games available on Steam for Windows, and 6000 are deemed playable. A little north of 1000 titles are rated Platinum, meaning they exhibit the same smooth gameplay and performance via Steam Play and Proton as they do on Windows.
