  • Proton Experimental fixes up Satisfactory networking making it easier to join others | GamingOnLinux

    Satisfactory is a first-person open-world factory building sim from Coffee Stain Studios and while it works well on Linux with Steam Play Proton the online networking had a big issue.

    For people with multiple network connections, trying to join others online would be problematic and most of the time just not work at all with an error message. There were workarounds like disabling other connections but it obviously wasn't ideal and just another barrier. Thankfully the Proton Experimental release from October 13 notes a single change as "Fix connection issues in Satisfactory on systems with multiple network interfaces".

  • Lutris 0.5.9 Released for Easier Access to Linux Games - itsfoss.net

    After almost a year of development , the gaming platform has Lutris 0.5.9 been released , providing tools to simplify the installation, configuration and management of games on Linux. The project code is written in Python and is distributed under the GPLv3 license.

    The project maintains a directory for quickly finding and installing game applications, which allows you to launch games in Linux with one click through a single interface, without worrying about installing dependencies and settings. Runtime components for running games are supplied by the project and are not tied to the distribution kit used. Runtime is a distribution-independent set of libraries that includes components from SteamOS and Ubuntu, as well as various additional libraries.

    Provides the ability to install games distributed through the services GOG, Steam, Epic Games Store, Battle.net, Origin and Uplay. At the same time, Lutris itself acts only as an intermediary and does not sell games, therefore, for commercial games, the user must independently purchase the game in the appropriate service (free games can be launched with one click from the Lutris graphical interface).

  • Hacking tactical narrative-driven RPG Midnight Protocol is out now | GamingOnLinux

    Developed by LuGus Studios who are known for Liftoff: FPV Drone Racing, Midnight Protocol is all about becoming a hacker who recently got doxxed and has been targeted for blackmail by a shadowy branch of government.

    Played entirely with your keyboard, Midnight Protocol is pretty much a game about revenge. You were arrested after your details got leaked, let go due to a lack of solid evidence and now you're jumping right back into the hacking game which is against your parole but that's not going to stop you. It's a game that blends together a turn-based hacking feature, style-wise that part looks like something out of the modern two Deus Ex titles with a bunch of narrative drip-fed to you through emails and other sources.

  • Interplay updating many classic titles on Steam to add support for Linux

    Interplay Entertainment announced today they're updating many of their classic titles to support Linux. A lot of it of course is thanks to the excellent free and open source DOSBox, which allows thousands of classic to play on modern systems without much hassle.
