Time Wanderer Brings Overhead Action RPG Gaming to Linux

Overhead Zelda-likes are becoming a bit of an in-ting, with some aiming for a more rogue-lite approach and few mixing in traditional action RPG mechanics and puzzle-solving.  Time Wanderer mixes things up by giving its main character Corina a ton of skills to get from Point A to B. The young redhead warrior Corina goes through time portals and winds up in a wide variety of time periods. One area may have her needing to make a ghostly copy of herself to phase through soli...

Meltan, A New Pokemon, Is Now Available In Pokemon GO

The Pokemon GO game has been a hit mobile title since it arrived in 2016. And it has been slowly but surely adding more and more Pokemon to the game for players to catch in one form or another. As such, the popularity of the game led to a more "casual" Pokemon title in the form of Pokemon Let's Go on the Nintendo Switch. With that came not just a return to the old school ways of Pokemon via a return to the Kanto region, but we also got something new in the form of a new Pokem...

Frostpunk’s City Building Simulation Getting Deeper With New 'Endless Mode'

Ah, Frostpunk! A game of survival and resource management. It was put out by developer 11-bit studios S.A. this past April and sold a good amount just within its first few days alone. It hasn’t been completely free of criticism, however, with many finding its city-building elements a tad restrictive or too specific.

Gigabuster Hits Kickstarter and Offers Up New Action-Platforming Thrills for Linux

Fast-paced action-platformers are in short supply outside of retro games. The Mega Man franchise revolutionized the sub-genre 30 years ago but hasn't been featured much on home computing devices over the years. The original PC incarnations of the series were the stuff of legend because of how terrible they were, and it wasn't until retro collections came out that PC gamers could enjoy them beyond fan games. Sadly, Linux players haven't been able to play a game like Mega Man y...
