  • Uh oh, looks like Despot's Game: Dystopian Army Builder is going to suck all my time away | GamingOnLinux

    Despot's Game: Dystopian Army Builder is a brand new release from Konfa Games and tinybuild that sees you command a bunch of naked people and send them through a strange post-apocalyptic labyrinth. Note: personal purchase.

    Like it Loop Hero, you have no direct control during combat you just watch it play out and hope for the best. Here though you're running through some kind of maze-like dungeon full of strange machines, with multiple people you need to look after. They'll likely die a lot though, don't get too attached, you can buy more naked people. Eventually you might come across the nefarious d’Spot who runs the show and perhaps destroy them to earn your freedom.

    It blends together quite a few different genres and it feels totally unique. The structure is a bit like The Binding of Isaac with you going from room to room, it's also a strategy game with you buying people and equipping them with various weapons you buy from shops spread throughout the maze and then there's the fusion of auto battling so you can sit back and watch the mess unfold.

  • Valve banning games that allow exchanging cryptocurrencies or NFTs | GamingOnLinux

    It seems Valve aren't a big fan of cryptocurrencies or NFTs as they've updated their onboarding guide with a new point about disallowing games that allow you to exchange them.

    Under the Rules and Guidelines heading where it mentions "What you shouldn’t publish on Steam" there's a new line that states "Applications built on blockchain technology that issue or allow exchange of cryptocurrencies or NFTs".

  • Check out this crowdfunding campaign to learn Godot Engine from GDQuest | GamingOnLinux

    GDQuest, a well-known name in the free and open source Godot Engine land has launched a new crowdfunding campaign aiming to get you to go from zero to hero with Godot programming. A course aimed at anyone and everyone who fancies getting into making games with Godot.

    The founder of GDQuest, Nathan Lovato, emailed in a little info about it: " Learn to Code From Zero is a course for everyone who wants to learn development.

    With it, you will learn programming from the very basics to creating a complete video game inspired by the hectic action game Enter the Gungeon.

    Game development courses typically consist of hours of step-by-step tutorials. They feel nice while you follow along, but as soon as you're left alone, working on your game, you get stuck.

Blender 3D tool now supported by Apple

  • Blender 3D tool now supported by Apple

    If you had any doubt of the long-term value of learning how to sculpt in 3D with Blender, doubt no more. The Blender Foundation just announced that Apple joined their Blender Development Fund as “a Patron Member” to support development of the software for the foreseeable future. This is GOOD news for Blender, no matter how you slice it.
