Risk of Rain 2 fully 3D early development

risk of rain 2 fully 3d early development in linux gaming news

Currently in gaming news, Hopoo Games just released news about Risk of Rain 2. Which is the sequel, but this time gaming is in full 3D, what!?
So there’s not much to be said about the game since it’s “early in developer”. Still, just from the gif’s below it looks interesting. The original Risk of Rain made a Linux debut back in October 2014. Yet still holds an over 90% Very Positive review average on Steam.

Check out the details from DevBlog #1 for Risk of Rain 2 below:

“We’ve been working on a new game for about 6 months, and we’ve been shooting ideas back and forth on how the best way to announce it is. When’s the best timing? At what point in development? Announcing a game is a delicate process.

But… we really want to share with people what we’ve been working so hard on, and we really can’t keep our lips sealed much longer, so we’re just gonna throw it out there with a devblog.

As a preface, I reaaaaally want to stress this: the game is still very VERY early in development.

None of the systems, artstyles, assets, or game design choices will necessarily translate to the final game. We’re learning as we go along – I hope that you guys find it as interesting to read as we do to develop.

risk of rain 2 gif linux mac windows pc gaming news

Risk of Rain 2 is our first fully 3D project! We think that 3D allows for much deeper design spaces and more possibilities for cool gameplay. Feelings of scale and atmosphere are also much stronger. We are really happy with the core of Risk of Rain – and we’re finding it plays even better in 3D. It just won’t crash anymore.

risk of rain 2 gif linux mac windows pc gaming news

There’s a bunch of other things I want to talk about, but I’m anxious and nervous about writing this so they’re all escaping my mind. So uh, yeah. There you go. We’ll be spending the next few devblogs talking about all the awesome systems we have in place (unified character system, item proc chains, etc) with future ones talking about our progress through development. I promise that we’re doing all these things because we think it’ll make the coolest game. And to all our fans – thanks for sticking with us. We hope you’re all as excited as we are.”

Since this does not really give us specifics, such as game engine, Linux build or release date. But I suspect the game is developed in Unity, although unconfirmed.

Stay tuned for more details.

So as most of you know, Yooka-Laylee was funded on Kickstarter in June 2015. Hence raising an incredible £2.1 million from over 80,000 backers. So to date, Yooka-Laylee is still the most funded UK Kickstarter game  ever.

So using a range of special moves, the two heroes will take on a huge variety of puzzles. While also exploring various platforming challenges in the search for Pagies. Yes that golden bounty used to unlock and even expand colorful new worlds. While each of these worlds is filled with oddball characters, hulking bosses and minecart challenges.

myworld 3d rpg multiplayer sandbox will see support in Linux gaming news

MyWorld, a new and unique 3D #RPG #multiplayer sandbox world that just released in gaming news. Now available on Steam, where game makers and game players can create, share, play games. Hence the launch by The Game Creators.

Now available on Steam Early AccessMyWorld is “an excellent framework for beginners, like Minecraft for game design”.

MyWorld is a game where players #buildgames. So anyone can build anything they imagine to be played in any game mode they wish. The big gaming news, these games can then be safely stored on a local file or uploaded. Even shared and improved upon by the community. So players can build the scenes, set the rules, and decide who plays the game. Meaning game builders can set a game as single-player, PvP or Co-Op.

We are looking into porting MyWorld to Linux and hope to carry out this development once our current Early-Access release is completed.

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“We’ll develop and refine the product for another 9 months or so before a final full release. The timing will be determined by the player feedback we receive as we work alongside our early adopting community.”

Lee Bamber, CEO of The Game Creators said today, “We’ve created a World of Worlds! A universe populated by games created by MyWorld users – where you can take any world and make it your own, and with the easy to use controls, build exciting new experiences to play and share with friends. We’ve launched MyWorld with over 75 games to play through and our community are already producing and sharing their own creations, so many more will quickly be online to play.”

Dave Milton, Lead Developer, said today, “My love of Action RPG game series like Zelda, Demon and Dark Souls, The Witcher and Diablo, is well known. All of which have all been an inspiration to me and have given me an enormous amount of passion for game development in this genre. I hope everyone loves playing as much as we are enjoying developing it.”

MyWorld is available on Steam Early Access for Windows PC. No release date has been given for Linux support just yet. So stay tuned.

Fumiko 3D adventure platformer receives first major update

fumiko 3d adventure platformer receives first major update linux mac pc

So the story-driven #adventure #platformer Fumiko has been receiving positive reviews on Steam for Linux and Windows PC. Hence this rather #engaginggame where players enter into a rabbit hole of sorts. While the network is preparing to stop you from becoming too powerful.
So the gameplay is weird, mysterious, yet really dynamic and the games adventure is similar to Refunct.

Significant changes in the adventure platformer update:

Camera

  • There has been a major bug that caused the default camera speed to be at almost 0, this has now been resolved

Levels

  • Added a subtle hint to the exit gate of Kronos Bridge
  • Changed the size of a trigger in the second level
  • Updated several levels to be conform with the new menu and skip mode

Linux

  • It should now be less likely for the mouse cursor to show up, but unity can’t be helped to show it once in a while. Opening the ingame menu (ESC) will hide the cursor again, should it still occurs. I’ll try and file a bug for Unity in the next days and hopefully get them to give it a fix.

So most of the changes outlined are tweaks, while the Menu has undergone significant changes. Since the Menu is not the traditional scroll type, but a more brilliant interactive way of navigating. So expect to be impressed, seeing Fumiko Game Studio will continue to fix and update the games core functionality. Otherwise, it runs well on Linux.

So Fumiko! is a game about a female artificial intelligence finding her place in a virtual world. It features challenging 3D platforming and handcrafted low-poly scenes with a surreal touch.

Since you managed to escape the testing grounds and voices are telling you where to go. A surreal world is unfolding. Everything is unknown to you in a dystopian network of 2080. In this story-driven game you’ll enter a rabbit hole. The network is preparing to stop you from becoming too powerful. Discover its sevrets and face a threat yet unknown.

Fumiko Features

  • Defy gravity with ridiculous jump heights
  • Gain momentum and enter flight as you speed through the air to escape your enemies
  • About 6-10 hours of playtime
  • A rich and twisted story
  • Trippy visuals with hand-crafted, astonishing worlds
  • Day-1 Linux and Windows support
  • Supports the Xbox, Xbox360 and Steam Controller

Hence the gameplay of this adventure platformer is about 6-10 hours long. Fumiko tells a psychological thriller story.

Fumiko is available now on Steam for both Linux and Windows PC. Or if DRM-Free is your preference, there is a 25% discount on the Itch page.

Players take on the roll of Doug to rescue his girlfriend. So of course you have to save the world before it’s too late.

Since its inception, Xenobia has been a world of peaceful precision. But that all changed with the arrival of the humans. Hence a race of crude, crass, meaty invaders. While some seem to think of Xenobia’s inhabitants as little more than darling collectables. Now on the brink of destruction, Xenobia’s future looks bleak.
Consequently all is not lost. Hence the unassuming robot named Doug and a few stragglers have managed to escape capture. Since Dr. Podd has a plan, if Doug can find him in time.

Liquid Metal Features:

  • Voice over talent from Tom Kane (Clone Wars: Master Yoda, Power Puff Girls: Professor Utonium, Archer: Woodhouse), Steve Cardenas (Power Rangers: Red Ranger), Brimstone, Leeanna Vamp, and Kristen Hu!
  • A whole new take on aliens! In our game, humans are the alien threat!
  • An RPG-style narrative that takes our hero, Doug, through his journey!
  • Open world map with exciting levels and perilous obstacles!
  • Items and power-ups!
  • Incredible graphics and character control thanks to Unreal Engine 4!
  • Exciting musical soundtrack and incredibly immersive sound design!
  • Loads of challenging goals and missions!

Gameplay:

Think “Jak and Daxter” meets “Super Mario 64” with a twist. This “Announcement Teaser Trailer” is the first glimpse of the concept, team, and overall game. More extensive game play videos will be released with the demo so stay tuned!

Initially, the early-access alpha demo will only be available to the public for one day: January 17th 2017. So a special thank you for all Kickstarter backers (regardless of level). Save State Games will also be issuing reminders via their newsletter which people can sign up for here.
