  • Valheim gets a needed patch, new terrain-modification system and no more draugr in stones

    It's been a little while since Valheim got a patch and it seems the developers have been busy, with the latest patch out now with one massive improvement.

    Valheim has proven popular, obviously since it was selling millions each week recently but it seems they may have underestimated what people would be building in the game. They've now developed a whole new terrain-modification system - however, you shouldn't notice any difference. They say it was made to "reduce the number of network instances and make loading faster and smoother" along with minor changes to the hoe and pickaxe along with smoother loading "of areas with a lot of terrain modifications".

  • The text-based Pro Wrestling Sim will be coming to Linux

    Pro Wrestling Sim is an Early Access text-based pro-wrestling booking simulator and the developer has confirmed they will officially bring it to Linux later.

    You've played text adventures, games where you swipe left and right on cards and all sorts in between but what about a booking simulator? In the the game Pro Wrestling Sim you control a wrestling promotion, decide your roster, and create storylines, feuds and matches where the winners and losers are in your hands.

  • Stealth puzzle-platformer Moonshot - The Great Espionage looks like it could be amusing

    Moonshot - The Great Espionage from developer NimbleBeasts is looking good, and it's coming to Steam in June along with full Linux support built with Godot Engine.

    Moonshot is a stealth puzzle platformer that puts you in the role of a spy of a fictional country in the 'moon race' era. In competition with the USA and the Soviet Union, you will have to use espionage and sabotage to make sure that your nation will be the first on the moon.

  • Check out the first teaser for the weird adventure The Season of the Warlock

    The Season of the Warlock, a brand new point and click adventure from developer enComplot has been announced with a teaser and it looks really good.

    Probably one of the best teasers I've seen for a point and click adventure, one the developers say is a " weird adventure game inspired by the gothic tale tradition" with plenty of comedy to go along with it. The plot revolved are the soul of a warlock trapped in a portrait that presents one Lord Alistair Ainsworth with an irresistible offer.

    [...]

    Already confirmed for Linux with system requirements up on Steam, plus their official website makes it very clearly with the big logos at the bottom that can't be missed.

  • Voxelgram is a sweet 3D version of Picross and it's now on Linux

    Putting Picross / Nonogram into 3D, Voxelgram is a pretty great puzzle game that sees you use your logical brain to work out what shapes are hidden inside blocks.

    The basic idea is the same as the classic puzzlers. Each line has a number, and you need to work out what blocks should stay and what blocks should go. The 3D space adds a fun twist on it and it's actually a little complicated to work some of them out - really great way to relax with a coffee.

    No guessing is involved at all, since everything is based on simple logic. There's even a demo available to give it a go right now which works great.

  • Check out the latest trailer for Stardeus, a space base building colony management sim

  • 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.
