Vampires Fall: Origins CRPG is headed to Steam for Windows PC, but what about Linux? So we reached out to developer Early Morning Studio with some news. Since the release is due to arrive on Steam soon.

Reflex arena FPS funding seeks on Kickstarter

reflex old-school arena FPS seeks funding on kickstarter

Reflex describing itself as a rare return to the old-school #FPS was somewhat disingenuous. It’s another 90’s FPS, this time on Kickstarter . Could this be the start of a new FPS-off; the Quake vs UT of post-2010 #gaming. Only if the game raises $360,000 AUD (£194,500/$318,230) in the next four weeks.

As you might expect, the feature list is extremely no-nonsense:

  • “Hunt through complex maps filled with jump pads, teleporters and tempting looking rocket jumps and gather weapons, items and powerups.
  • “Bunny hop and double jump around until you see something to shoot, then splatter that something all over the walls with a rocket launcher.
  • “Over 10 game modes including Free-For-All, Capture the Flag and Team Deathmatch.
  • “Designed for “easy to learn, hard to master” gameplay — there will always be new strategies to devise and new trick jumps to find.
  • “Fancy, in-game map and replay editing tools (included with every version).
  • “Matchmaking, ranking, regional ladders, player created ladders — both public and private.
  • “Custom built engine that contains everything we need and nothing we don’t.”

There’s a major focus on movement, which is no bad thing. Expect it to be fast, frantic, and—to those that don’t have the time to master it—borderline chaotic. Perhaps more importantly, though, the game’s creators want to support the game through a host of options. Regional ladders, team tracking, tournament hosting, dedicated servers and custom ladders will be supported, alongside clans, spectator features and LAN. Perhaps more than the arena shooter itself, it’s the flexibility of the genre that seems lacking from the modern AAA FPS.

Linux? Mac? 

Yes and yes.

Initially, we’ll be Windows only as we don’t currently have the resources to develop and test on three platforms. The moment we do, we’ve already got some people lined up to take care of getting the game on anything that supports a mouse, keyboard and reasonably modern GPU.

Eschalon: Book III Game Releases Today for Linux, Windows, and Mac

+BasiliskGames has announced that Eschalon: Book III launches today for Linux, Windows, and Mac. The final title in the old school fantasy #RPG series gives players the chance to answer questions about four powerful gemstones and the clouded past of the protagonist. The game includes a variety of engine updates, new items, new spells, and an open world to explore.

This is classic roleplaying – no cutscene melodrama, casual gameplay, or social shenanigans. Basilisk Games invites you to share its unabashed love for old-school RPGs with the February 14 release of Eschalon: Book III.

Eschalon: Book III is not the RPG for armchair dragon slayers or lazy achievement hunters. Drawn from pen-and-paper traditions, the Eschalon series revels in the mysteries of dangerous landscapes and the triumphs of hard-won battles. It rewards the tactical and ingenious, and leaves the careless to suffer the consequences.

A fusion of turn-based fantasy and survival gameplay, players will contend with hunger, sleep, equipment degradation, and even skills altered by weather. With multiple game-paths and solutions to obstacles, Eschalon: Book III emphasizes meaningful character development and true roleplaying.

Although no prior knowledge is necessary, Eschalon: Book III brings the trilogy to a close as you seek to uncover your past, the secrets of the Crux stones, and the true identity of the Orakur.


  • Classic style, turn-based RPG inspired by pen-and-paper gaming.
  • Unrestricted character development with impactful choices.
  • Open world with no level-scaling and more secrets than you will ever find.
  • Disease, hunger, weapon breakage – actions have serious consequences.
  • Hundreds of new items, spells, and game engine updates.
  • Developer tools for creating maps and adventures shortly after release.
