@boilingsteam Pretty great thing to hear! Really love to hear great people joining mastodon! I really love being part of the community, because I often learn lots of things from different perspective and get some interesting opinion instead of some trolling and ranting at what I say. Also I like that I can support projects directly without project monetising me by ads.
Also, FYI there is about 2-3 million accounts here on fediverse ;)
Welcome to Basingstoke is a very nice looking survival-horror game, available on Itch.io and free for Linux users! I just tried it and its pretty fun and well designed. Give it a try! https://puppygames001.itch.io/basingstoke/devlog/70568/basingstoke-is-now-free-for-linux #linux #linuxgaming #welcometobasingstoke #survival #horror #blocks
Benchmarks of Dirt Rally 2.0 on Linux via Proton/SteamPlay. Seems to run very well, and I must admit I was surprised to see the RX590 perform so well. https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=dirt-rally-20&num=3 - very close to the 1070Ti. I wonder if there's not something fishy going on, on Windows you don't get them so close in performance.
I've updated my list of games developed on #Linux, adding a bunch of stuff expected to be released in 2019 and some that have already been released this year: City Game Studio ( @binogure ), WARP-TEK ( @AlexHoratio ) and Lord of Dwarves (Nick Matyas).
Thanks to @akhilvarkey for bringing those three to my attention! If anybody out there know of a game that should be on this list, but isn't, let me know! :)
Something for the weekend: HITMAN 2’s first mission is now free and works great in Steam Play on Linux.

Some news about D9VK which is a fork of DXVK to add DirectX9 support to a Vulkan backend. https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=D9VK-D3D9-Vulkan-From-DXVK #dxvk #d9vk #linux #linuxgaming
Dedicated to the lady who is allowing me to put Peppermint Linux on her Lenovo IdeaPad.
Valve releases a new version of Proton. 3.16-7. Check out the release notes on github: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Proton/wiki/Changelog#316-7 #linuxgaming #proton #valve #release
Something I already knew but could not talk about: Valve is working with anti-cheat companies to bring Proton compatibility to their anti-cheat systems. Somehow it leaked :) https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/apuwxe/so_i_asked_easy_anticheats_support_in_regards_to/ #proton #linuxgaming #linux #valve #anticheat
Before doing anything intelligent with "AI", do the unintelligent version fast and at scale.
At worst you understand the limits of a simplistic approach and what complexities you need to handle.
At best you realize you don't need the overhead of intelligence.
Phoronix has a lot of benchmarks on Linux with the recent Radeon VII from AMD. I think it's probably somewhat biased in AMD's favor (the choice of games, for example, is a matter of debate). Still looks like it's a solid card for gaming (and OpenCL) nonetheless. https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=radeon-vii-linux&num=1 #linuxgaming #amd #radeonvii #benchmarks
