Coming up on Linux GameCast Weekly: We scream about streaming games with Linux! Distance looses control, Link invades Steam, and it’s probably archery. Then we throw the chairs at Painkiller: Hell and Damnation. All this, plus your hate mail.

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/support-0-a-d-an-open-source-strategy-game

  • In a world…Where Venn Stone voices trailers for Open source games…

  • Flexible campaign, means they get the dosh either way

  • 33 is a bit short but it’s good knowing that wet stinky will help continue development.

 

Extra Humble

https://www.humblebundle.com/

  • Bard’s Tale, Broken Sword, Organ Trail, Anomaly best Korea

  • Literally more games that I already own.

  • Literally games I don’t care about

 

Stretching RAIN!

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1847847657/raindrop-0

  • Love the lack of mention of Linux anywhere, other than that retarded .png with the campaign goals.

  • Just wanted to give the project a mention since it does not have Linux as a stretch goal.

    • I suppose barely mentioning it counts

 

Probably Archery

http://www.probablyarchery.com/

  • Another 7 Day FPS entry looking to milk some money.

  • Looks interesting, even though suffers from the exact same problems as Wolfire’s Receiver.

  • I enjoy funky little games like this.

  • I’ve seen a few of these archry simulators.   Interesting concept, but not very interesting

Makes with the working

V-

  • I would ding it a chair for the load times but that is pointed out in the notes.

J-

Total-


Shiny / Sounds

V-

  • It’s definitely one of the best looking FPS games on Linux.

  • Ambient sound is top notch but the “here they come, fkr” audio is hella repetitive

J-

  • The game looks pretty good.

  • Found myself headbanging along with the combat music


Total- 


Control

V-

  • No complaints here using the wireless gerbil + keyboard.

J-

  • Controls about as well as I remember


Total- 


FUN

V-

  • I had “fun” for about two hours. This is when I realized it’s Serious Sam in heck.

  • No real story; just wave after wave + random boss fight.

J-

  • I remember playing the original in high school.   This is a nice trip down nostalgia lane

  • Really, that’s about it.
