  • Stylistic adventure horror 'Of Love and Eternity' has a visual style like nothing else

    Well this is definitely different! Of Love and Eternity is a stylistic adventure horror game about love and separation.

    This has to be one of the biggest surprises for me so far this year, as the style and atmosphere here is simply incredible. Honestly it's like absolutely nothing else out there. Such a hard game to describe to, you simply need to experience it. Mashing together low-poly characters, with a number of screen effects results in something pretty wild here. It starts off with a cut-scene that starts off with a murder scene, and then progresses into an undead third-person adventure that's simply mesmerising.

  • Steam Tinker Launcher: Making Tinkering Much Easier

    Ever heard of Steam Tinker Launcher? If I have to go by the preliminary results of the Linux Gamer survey (still open by the way!), most of you have not. It is a tool that helps you to launch your Steam games with specific options (such as launch flags) and making it very easy to manage individual game settings if needed.

    Frostworx, who is the developer of Steam Tinker Launcher (STL from there on), has agreed to answer questions from us about his tool (and more!).

    [...]

    I was sure that some other users could have a use for such a tool as well, so I released it publicly very early. With STL having so many options, this might sound totally contradictory first, but I like the “one thing well” philosophy. It is incredibly fascinating how many games using SteamPlay/Proton simply work out of the box on Linux, but those games which do not work require many different, often very specific customizations to get them working. The “one thing well” philosophy doesn’t apply here with hacking one solution for one game, but with offering one single tool which covers every possible tweak required to get any game working.

    [...]

    Frostworx: I’m sure we’ll see several new SteamVR announcements. Although there are several old Linux-related SteamVR issues still not fixed, I’m pretty confident that the Linux VR situation will improve a lot, including additional new VR peripherals with Linux drivers. Finally getting functional Valve Index cameras would be really nice. There probably won’t be too many new games (pandemic), but most of the major titles will work fine from day one on Linux. I’m also confident that there will be at least one Linux native masterpiece by the end of the year (likely from Valve).

  • What have you been playing? Have a Sunday chat with us

    Another week comes to a close and there's been a number of fun releases lately - so come have another community chat in the comments about what you've been playing.

    For me here, to I'm sure no surprise, there's been a rather lot of Metro Exodus since it's now released for Linux. Quite a beauty this one, another game where (like Valheim), I find myself taking screenshots constantly because some of the scenes are just awesome or completely surprising.

  • The Sunday Papers - Linux and Gaming odds and ends

    It's Sunday, a time for coffee, a sit in the sun and perhaps a little gaming? Time for a small round-up of some missed bits we wanted to go over recently.

    First up CrossCode has received it's final update, as Radical Fish Games add in some extra content to the A New Home DLC including some new quests and other things to do. This really is the final update too, finishing off the 9-year long overall development cycle on the game. They've also confirmed no plans for a sequel but a new game is in progress code-named Project Terra, which will be an action-RPG. You can buy CrossCode on GOG and Steam.

    Are you a game developer looking to use purchased marketplace Assets from the Epic Games Store on Linux? Well, as usual Epic Games don't officially support Linux but for grabbing your assets there's now the open source Epic-Asset-Manager found on GitHub. Could be useful for some of you. Also to note that the Heroic Games Launcher found on GitHub appears to be able getting support for the Unreal Marketplace with the next version with code that's been merged in.

Rome Total War Remastered Ships in 10 Days

  • Rome Total War Remastered Ships in 10 Days

    In just about 10 days from now, Rome Total War Remastered will be released on Steam (29th of April). It’s a fairly old game in the Total War series, but this time around the Remaster is not some half-assed effort just to adapt the UI and resolution to modern hardware: they have actually decided to refresh several aspects of this older title at the same time. Here’s an overview of what is being updated...

  • 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.
