  • Epic Games Offering Free Easy Anti-Cheat For Developers

    With the hulking, massive cash cow that Epic Games is, it seems inevitable that they’re gaining a stronger and stronger hold on the PC gaming market. They offered Sony $200 million to make their first-party games exclusive to the Epic Games Store. Just keeping Borderlands 3 as a timed exclusive cost them $115 million. But, spending all that cash apparently doesn’t hurt them at all.

  • Ultimate ADOM - Caverns of Chaos gets a big update and exits Early Access on August 25

    Ultimate ADOM - Caverns of Chaos, the modern reimagining of the classic roguelike from Assemble Entertainment version 0.9.0 is up as the "Combat Update" and it's set to leave Early Access on August 25.

    Quite surprising really since it's only been in Early Access since February but they've put up some pretty big updates for the game over that time. The latest brings in a number of changes based on community feedback, along with a bunch of new content and lots of tweaks to combat. The skill trees for example have been streamlined, which allow for a bit more freedom and no longer locking you into certain weapons. They say combat has bee n "spiced up a lot" to make it overall more challenging.

  • Little Red Dog Games say there's "no reason not to" do Linux versions of games | GamingOnLinux

    Little Red Dog Games developer of Precipice, Deep Sixed and Rogue State Revolution spoke in an interview with Linux hardware vendor System76 about developing games on and for Linux. It's quite an interesting interview that goes over details about how they make their games, their use of Godot Engine and why they think it's a good idea to develop for Linux.

    Starting off as hobby developers making point and click adventures, Little Red Dog Games are now a full-time studio with multiple games out on various stores. Their lead programmer, Denis Comtesse, is a Linux user and so using the likes of Godot makes it all relatively easy for them since it has great cross-platform support.

  • The 'Wooting two HE' sounds like a great analog RGB keyboard to keep an eye on | GamingOnLinux

    With the purpose-built software you can remap any of the keys, tweak the lighting and plenty more. Best of all though? Their software supports Linux too. They even have an SDK up on GitHub.

  • Kerbal Space Program 1.12 "On Final Approach" is the last major update out now | GamingOnLinux

    Celebrating 10 years since the first public version of Kerbal Space Program became available, version 1.12 "On Final Approach" is out now to finish it off. This is the last major update for the game, which ended up becoming ridiculously popular. From gamers trying to launch their first rocket, to teaming up with various space agencies to help educate people.

    Developer Squad says it's also their "most ambitious free update ever" as it's packed with new content, along with many features and quality of life improvements based on feedback from players and an upgrade of the Unity version used.

  • The customization update for drilling-survival game Volcanoids looks magnificent | GamingOnLinux

    Volcanoids is like a dream game for steampunk base-building fans that blends in survival shooter game mechanics and now there's a whole lot more to do in it.

    It's quite a unique survival game too. You have a race against time to gather materials, explore and upgrade before having to run back to your drillship to dive below ground when a volcano erupts. Before you would just come back up and everything was normal but now there's going to be a big dust cloud that lingers around a little so it's a smidgen more realistic. On top of that the customization has been greatly expanded with new colours, drill heads, decals and more. There's also new weapons like the melee Saw Gauntlet allowing you to rip and tear through the robotic enemies.

  • Kathy Rain: Director's Cut will have 50% off if you own the original plus new trailer | GamingOnLinux

    Kathy Rain: Director's Cut is looking really slick and with the release coming later this year, we now know you will pay quite a bit less if you owned the original. This brand new version will not only revamp the whole thing with a new game engine (Unity), it will also be supporting Linux unlike the original.

    Announced this week was that owners of the original will get a 50% discount on the Director's Cut, and that discount will never go away as they're not setting an expiration date on it. That discount will be on top of any other discount too through a launch sale, and any other seasonal sales.

  • 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.
