  • Metro Exodus arrives for Linux on April 14 | GamingOnLinux

    Originally released back in 2019, Metro Exodus from 4A Games and Deep Silver now has a launch date for their official Linux build which will land on April 14.

    "Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created. Explore the Russian wilderness across vast, non-linear levels and follow a thrilling story-line that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter."

  • Play through the amusing free point & click Hair of the Dog out on Steam now | GamingOnLinux

    While it's been available on itch.io for a while, the free comedy point and click adventure Hair of the Dog is up on Steam now as a great reminder for people to play it.

    Developed by Tall Story Games originally for the AdventureXJam 2020, it's a quality voiced retro pixel-art styled game with some great sarcastic humour that promises a thoroughly "British adventure".

    "After a mysterious explosion over Victorian London, Cummerbund Bandersnatch visits his uncle to find he's been experimenting with a new formula he's created in an attempt to give himself a "good time". Seduced by the promises in his uncle's journal, Cummerbund decides to drink the same formula and discovers that his life will no longer be the same again (at least between the hours of 8pm - 8am daily)."

  • Dead Mage say no to paid DLC, Children of Morta to get free upgrades soon

    After originally planning a major paid DLC release, Dead Mage have decided to change their roadmap and instead work on free upgrades for Children of Morta which seem to be due soon. Easily one of the best games to come to Linux in 2020, Children of Morta is a blend of some incredible pixel-art with a story-driven action RPG and it reviewed thoroughly well so more of it is entirely welcome and exciting.

  • Epic 2D RPG Chronicon gets a major upgrade, Linux build finally up to date

    Chronicon, one of my favourite 2D action-RPGs developed by Subworld just released a major 1.20 upgrade and after quite some time being out of date - the Linux build is once again sorted.

    From what I've seen the developer say on the Linux delay, they had problems in the latest Game Maker Studio with Linux and ended up getting direct support from the game engine team to sort it and it shouldn't happen in future so that's a nice outcome.

  • Psychological deck-builder Neurodeck is out now, developer planning some major updates

    Neurodeck is a brand new deck-building experience from TavroxGames and Goblinz Publishing that tries to do things differently, by exploring feelings.

    "Neurodeck is a psychological deckbuilding card game to challenge your fears. Build your deck & capacities by answering personality tests, visiting rooms or meditating. Face your phobia and defeat them through the power of life-inspired cards."

  • Beyond a Steel Sky releases on DRM-free store GOG with a Linux build up now | GamingOnLinux

    Prefer GOG to grab your games from? Good news on that front as Beyond a Steel Sky, the sequel to the cult classic Beneath a Steel Sky is now available on GOG and a Linux build recently went up too.

  • Valve overhauls the Dota 2 new player experience as DOTA: Dragon's Blood releases

    Today is the day, the big teaming up of Valve and Netflix is out with the DOTA: Dragon's Blood anime series. Since there will be renewed interest in Dota 2 as a game, Valve has also given it a huge upgrade for newer players.

    About the Anime that's out now: the fantasy series tells the story of Davion, a renowned Dragon Knight devoted to wiping the scourge from the face of the world. Following encounters with a powerful, ancient eldwurm as well as the noble Princess Mirana on a secret mission of her own, Davion becomes embroiled in events much larger than he could have ever imagined.

  • Steam In-Home-Streaming or Steam Link? Which is Best?

    If you have several PCs at home, you probably had the chance to try Steam In-Home-Streaming (IHS): the solution made by Valve to stream games from Steam from one PC to another. It works surprisingly well, so that you can play your demanding games on a feeble laptop as long as your gaming PC is running somewhere in the house. I’d wage it has been getting better over the years, because 3-4 years ago it seemed like the stream was not remotely as stable or as well defined. Nowadays, you can see the compression artifacts if you look long enough, but it’s mostly seamless and there’s barely any noticeable latency.

    The Steam Link started as a hardware device ages ago now, until it was discontinued and replaced by a software version originally for ARM devices (Raspberry Pi and Mobile phones).

  • Steam Game Festival is now called Steam Next Fest, returning June 16

    About the renaming Valve press said "We're giving it a shiny new title to better reflect what the event is: A week-long celebration of upcoming games where players can chat with developers, watch livestreams, and play what's next on Steam!". Right now the event for June is open for developers to submit games up until April 14. Valve has confirmed that the Steam Next Fest will return for another round in October.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
