Linux Gaming

Sky Break

During the big sales on Steam, I love going through the game queues and seeing if there is anything out there that I have not seen yet.  The other day this game came across my path and I had to give it a try, the trailer video for it looked pretty cool and the idea of being stranded on an alien world sound like a fun and idea.  So I bought it, installed it and then played it.. I got hooked.  This is one of my longer videos, because honestly when I was going to quit playing I got caught up in it again and ended up playing even longer.    I did edit it down a little to try to cut the time down, but over all, it is worth watching and the game is worth buying, even though it is in early access.  I hope they add even more features to the game.  

Here's the video, I hope you enjoy it.

Shadwen a first person sneaker

This is a game I had been looking forward to its release, I first heard about it when the developers did an AMA here on reddit. I was really impressed with their humble attitude and excited when they shared demo footage of their latest soon to be release game.

Well here it is, Shadwen, a first person sneaker. I have to say, this game is pretty darn good, and it ads a few twists to the mechanics of the game that I was not expecting, and really enjoy, such as pausing time, and rewinding your game play..

Super Tux Kart

Tux Kart IconRemember playing Mario Kart?  Fun game, and there are so many clones of that game out there now.. My favorite one right now is Super Tux Kart, which is free and available on most Linux systems.  Check out my video about Super Tux Kart below.

 

Trine - Enchanted Edition

Over the 4 day weekend I spent a lot of time playing this game.  Trine is a wonderful side scrolling adventure that was released in 2009.  The graphics are amazing, and hand drawn and the game play is challenging and addicting at the same time.   I logged about 6 hours into this game over the weekend, and had one night that I looked up and realized it was almost 2am!   Check out my game play video below, to get an idea of what this game is like.

Saints Row Gat out of Hell

Saints Row Gat Out of HellI just played Saints Row Gat Out of Hell, and I have to tell you, this game is a lot of fun.  Think of it like GTA in hell, but you are a good guy.  The basic idea of the story is the President gets sucked into hell and you go there to get him out, but you need to earn your way up the ranks of evil in order to meet with the devil so you can shoot him in the face.  Simple idea, right?     This game is a lot of fun, and below is a game play video with some commentary.
