Source 2 the sourceining

http://www.reddit.com/r/DotA2/comments/2cv5os/so_the_workshop_tools_isnt_just_a_modding/

  • No official word from valve on this yet, but its good to start putting the tools in Devs hands

  • L4D3 CONFIRMED!!11!!

  • half-life-3-i-want-to-believe.jpg

  • Guess we’ll find out at games com

 

Leadwerks gains steam

http://store.steampowered.com/app/301170/

  • WHAR Linux!11?

  • Really, that is your selling point.

  • There are better, cheaper engines available for Windows.

  • “Lets have a kickstarter to bring it to Linux natively”

    • 1 Year Later…

      • “Fuck that noise! We like money more than we like being in the good graces of Linux gamers/game devs”

  • You know, I almost could buy the whole doing it for exposure angle…but fuck it

 

Yarrgh!

http://store.steampowered.com/app/298480/

  • RTS /w boats.

  • Looks a bit amateurish for the price,. +

  • You sunk my scrabbleship

 

Build 267

http://unknownworlds.com/ns2/build-267-released/

  • I waited for the 3min load time for the tutorial and it loaded.  

  • NOPED when I fired the first shot.

Lovely Planet

http://store.steampowered.com/app/298600/

  • Published by the creators of No Time To Explain

  • Placeholder graphics …the game

  • Its like…twee…hipster…quake?

 

Nuke it!

http://store.steampowered.com/app/298520/

  • Big thanks to Simon Borgström for the keys.

  • SO it’s multiplayer only?

    • Yup and Lag kills are very much a thing.

    • If you just run around one of the planetoids while shooting a rapid fire gun, you can see the delay with which the shots are fired.

  • The gravity mechanic seems interesting.   I’d maybe pick it up if it was on sale

 

Hipster dungeon

http://store.steampowered.com/app/293780/

  • Would be amazing if it allowed networked play.

  • ^ I will give it a spin when/if online mode is added.

  • Yeah, local co-op seems a limiting factor for this game

  • roll 4dnope and drop the lowest

Killing Floor 2 – Meet the Zeds, part 2

http://www.pcgamer.com/previews/killing-floor-2-gore-system/

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=No5dJ7OUlVM

  • Repetitious or not, the original KF did pull me in quite effectively for 45hours.

  • Of course, back then, there wasn’t a whole lot of variety when it came to Linux games on Steam.

  • I thought we already did this story

  • The author waxes about how orgasmic the combat is in the game

  • Hilights include a new melee combat system and perks

 

Noooope nope nope nope nope nope (thank strider)

  • I’m liking FNA more and more.

  • Big kudos to flibit for the continuous introduction of more SDL2 features to it!

  • I still like how XBLA lives on..in linux gaming

 

Terra

http://freegamer.blogspot.com/2014/07/support-development-of-terra-centauri.html

  • Someone actually built a game /w the MegaGlest Engine?

    • Yeah and they’re hoping putting centauri in the name will draw people in hopes it’s an Alpha Centauri type thing.

    • Which admittedly it does fit into the genre, it probably won’t be as good though.

 

Unvanquished Alpha 30 released
