  • Jackbox Games turned Champ'd Up into a physical card game with your drawings | GamingOnLinux

    The Jackbox Party Pack 7 has a game called Champ'd Up, a game where you draw cards to play and now it's being turned into a real physical card game where you use your own drawings.

    It's called Champ'd Up: Slam Down, which they teamed up with game designer Sam Strick "who has a lot of experience in the tabletop world". The way it works is that after a game of Champ'd Up, it will give you the option to "visit the post-game gallery where you will see the option to turn your game’s most popular champions into their own pack of playing cards". A damn clever idea actually! Turning your creations into a two-player card fighting game.

  • Subsoap released an overhauled Faerie Alchemy with Linux support | GamingOnLinux

    Subsoap, developer of the popular Faerie Solitaire series and more has released a brand new overhaul of the classic Match 3 game Faerie Alchemy along with Linux support.

    "Transmute magical elements to combine them into rarified forms. Faerie Alchemy is a more than a match-3 puzzle game. It is simple to understand with deep complexity to master as you aim for higher heights of elements and score."

    Originally made way back in 2011, a classic web and mobile game loved by many gamers. Now, it's had a big 1.0 release with a ton of enhancements for the desktop release. This includes a new game engine, support for Linux / macOS / Windows, fullscreen support, no internet connection needed, you can close and resume the game, higher resolution graphics, more overall polish and particle effects, more music and much more.

  • Online sandbox adventure Elteria Adventures gets a huge overhaul and opens up a Playtest | GamingOnLinux

    Featuring cross-platform online play, along with Linux support, there's no date set yet for when it will launch properly but this is the next major step for it. With a style that resembles a mix between Fortnite and Minecraft, I personally think this could end up finding quite an audience and they're being very careful to take their sweet time with it, to ensure when it does actually release that fun is the main factor.

  • Awesome pixel-art RTS The Fertile Crescent gets animals, waypoints and better performance | GamingOnLinux

    I will never miss an opportunity to mention The Fertile Crescent, a quality indie RTS with some wonderful pixel-art work that feels like a retro Age of Empires. Set in the Bronze Age in the Near East, The Fertile Crescent supports single-player against AI on randomly generated maps along with full cross-platform online multiplayer.

    A fresh upgrade went out recently bringing in some huge updates to the gameplay. There's now various animals like a Gazelle, Mouflon and Boar which you can hunt for food that all travel in flocks. They have different behaviours too like the Boar being aggressive, while the others will try to run to a different part of the map when hunted.

  • 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.
