  • Outpost, a new free top-down mix of survival and tower defence is on Steam

    Outpost is one to keep an eye on! Currently free to keep, it's a top-down survival game where you need to defend a blue Shrine.

    It features the typical survival-style start, with you needing to run around and gather resources. What's interesting here though is how it's blended that with a tower defense game. If creatures get to your shrine, it's game over and you need to start again. Each time you start, the map is entirely random too with a different season. It's odd, it's rough but the idea is a sound one that when expanded could be great.

  • Erannorth Reborn, a 'hardcore' deck-builder with tons of customization is coming to Linux

    Spyridon Thalassinos has confirmed that Erannorth Reborn, their positively rated deck-builder is on the way to Linux.

    Released back in October, Erannorth Reborn has gone onto gaining a "Very Positive" user rating so their own take on deck-building and turn-based battles must have something interesting. From the way they describe it, my curiosity has certainly been captured. In their roadmap post on Steam, it was updated to mention GOG and Linux versions will be coming.

  • The latest Black Mesa update makes it much smoother on Linux

    With Crowbar Collective enabling a Beta containing the full Black Mesa experience recently, it came with a major performance problem on Linux which now seems to be solved!

    Previous to the latest update on the Beta branch, the game at many points would suddenly drop to single-digit frames and it wasn't good. Now though? A different world, the performance is like night and day and it remains smooth.

    Here's a few more fresh shots of Xen taken today, it really does look incredible.

  • Seven Kingdoms: Ancient Adversaries, the classic open source RTS has a new release

    After being made open source back in 2009, the absolute classic Seven Kingdoms: Ancient Adversaries lives on and another release is out now.

    7K:AA continues to hold a piece of my heart, being quite possibly my first modern real-time strategy game on PC. I played a fair few strategy games back in the days of the Amiga but this was a whole new beast. The gameplay still holds up reasonably well now too, thanks to the unique ideas it had about resource distribution, spying and more.

  • With a super bizarre story, block-rolling puzzle game A Tofu Tail is out now

    Bizarre story? Yup, you're a big block of Tofu. Seriously, the protagonist in this is a person who was transformed into a rolling block of Tofu.

  • 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.
