  • Godot Engine - Maintenance release: Godot 3.3.3

    While we're busy working on both the upcoming Godot 4.0 and 3.4 releases (with a dev snapshot for 3.4 beta 4 available now), we still cherry-pick important bug fixes to the 3.3 branch regularly for maintenance releases (see our release policy).

    Since the release of Godot 3.3.2 in May, there have been a number of bug fixes which are worth including in a new stable release for all Godot users.

    Additionally, this release fulfills a new Google Play requirement for Android to target the API level 30 (Android 11). This includes partial support for Android scoped storage, which will be expanded in future releases.

    Godot 3.3.3, like all future 3.3.x releases, focuses purely on bug fixes, and aims to preserve compatibility. It is a recommended upgrade for all Godot 3.3 users.

  • The Legendary Keeper Update is out for monster taming metroidvania Monster Sanctuary | GamingOnLinux

    Monster Sanctuary from Moi Rai Games and Team17 grows again, with the 1.2 Legendary Keeper Update out now.

    Adding in some more end-game content there's now the Hall of Legendary Keepers to find deep within the Magma Chamber. It presents statues of their biggest Kickstarter backers, who each contributed a team of Monsters that gives players fourteen unique fights - and some of the most challenging in the game. Tough but it has rewards to earn too.

    Want to look flashy? There's now player customization too. Different costumes are available, with more to come in future upgrades and you can find them throughout the game or as a reward for "epic accomplishments".

  • Parkitect gains cross-platform online co-op in the latest update | GamingOnLinux

    Parkitect, the magnificent theme-park building game from Texel Raptor added online co-op, after being in Beta since April. This follows on from the original multiplayer update that was locked per-platform back in December 2020.

    This is great and at times a technical challenge due to the way different platforms handle things, which we've seen before in other games. Crossplay is becoming (thankfully) a much bigger focus in recent years with many more games, and consoles, properly sorting it out so you can play together regardless of your choice platform. For a game like Parkitect, building cooperatively is such a wonderful idea for an already great game.

  • The free creative Mario Maker-like platformer MakerKing is out now on Steam | GamingOnLinux

    After having regular early public releases available for around 4 years now MakerKing (previously called Jumpaï), has formally entered Early Access on Steam and it's free to play.

    From the various builds we played through, MakerKing has come a very long way and has actually turned into one of the better creator platformers overall. Giving you the ability to create entire levels, play through levels from others and to play online with others too. If you've been looking for something a bit like Mario Maker on PC this is a good choice.

  • The GOG Games Festival is live with new games and lots on sale | GamingOnLinux

    It seems GOG have been watching what Valve are doing with Steam and they've announced the GOG Games Festival.

    Today they've announced a bunch of new game releases, more upcoming games, games you can try a demo of and of course there's lots of titles currently on sale. From the press email, GOG mentioned they will be revealing and adding games on a daily basis, so you'll want to check back often to see them all.

  • 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.
