Tesla vs. Lovecraft: For Science DLC Coming in December for Linux

Twin-stick shooters came to prominence many years ago thanks to games like Robotron - but really fell into the abyss until Geometry Wars hit the scene. That one little freebie inside Project Gotham Racing 2 didn't just usher in a new era for them on consoles, but on all manner of computers as well. We've seen things go from geometric shapes to flashier variants of them to wholesale knock-offs. With the rise of the twin-stick shooter came imitators, but also plenty of games ou...

Night of the Blood Moon Coming in 2019 for Linux

The rogue-like sub-genre of action games has been on the rise for the last decade. Most have gone with a dark and somewhat dingy motif over the years, but Night of the Blood Moon changes things up a bit. It uses a very colorful palette with a fairly high amount of detail. The environments have a healthy variety to them, ranging from underground stone-filled dungeons, grassy areas, and red-tinted pyramid-looking areas.It has a fairly interesting premise too.

Rather than going the animated route, however, it's all live-action... including the Pokémon themselves. ...

Project Hospital Now Available on Linux

Hospital management games are nothing new - but have been in a decline for quite some time. Fortunately, ex-developers from Bullfrog brought the genre back to life with a more extravagant affair earlier this year with Two Point Hospital. However, those seeking a more stripped-down graphical look and more in-depth hospital management now have an option.
