Cublast HD releases for Linux and SteamOS

cublast hd releases in games for linux steamos and windows

Since ThinkFast Studio already launched the #games #Windows build for Cublast HD. Hence the minimalistic and fast paced platformer now releases via Steam for Linux and #SteamOS. Which takes some nimble navigating and puzzle solving skills to a new level.
So players can take on the challenge in a wide variety of single player levels. Or let get into some local co-op or multiplayer games. Cublast HD also comes with a built-in level editor. Therefore players can share their creations with the community from around the world.

Cublast HD trailer for Linux, SteamOS and Windows:

Cublast HD Features:

  • Challenging Gameplay
  • Local Co-op, Versus & Community Maps.
  • Level Editor, let your creativity go wild and build levels that you then can share with the whole community.
  • Creative & growing Community
  • Customization, customise the game to your taste with vibrant themes and accents.

So just from the trailer alone, the game looks straight forward. However, these are the type of titles that fuel rage. Since everything straight forward for the first two minutes. Hence a twitch of the controller analogue stick and it’s on.
Yet the creative puzzle aspect of the game has my attention.

When ThinkFast Studio first started out, with only had 2 members (Stefan Dinkelberg and Djordy Donopawiro). That was when they were creating their first project Cublast. This was released back in early 2015 for Google Play, iTunes and Windows Store. Entering the Windows Game Developer Contest with Cublast and finishing 2nd. Since the big success of Cublast there is more to be done. This is when Stefan van Diemen de Jel joined the team to create Cublast HD.

Cublast HD is currently available now via Steam. Now that ThinkFast releases support for Linux and SteamOS. As well as Windows PC.

System Requirements:

  • Memory: 2 GB RAM
  • Storage: 300 MB available space

Hot Guns full release now available on Steam

hot guns full release now available on steam in linux gaming news

Now with a full release in gaming news, Hot Guns. Hence this #fast and #destructive action-platformer for Linux, SteamOS and Windows PC. All with a different variation of random #gameplay. Now the full release is available on Steam.

So I have to admit, my first impression is Broforce. The epic shooter platformer that boasts a roster of nostalgia beyond compare. Let alone the multiplayer action. Yet it seems we have a contender, Hot Guns.

What’s the Story

Since serious problems arise. The quick and simple solution, the only choice, they call for you. So conventional methods of operation “shoot first then shoot again!”. The mission, eliminate the 3 guys in charge. Hence the rather predictable but well armed organisation. Here players will get coordinates, a pager, powerful guns. And even bigger news, access to unlimited ca$h. While working on the basis of what you find is yours.

Hot Guns Features

  • Full-action Single Player story mode
  • Up to 4 Players in the Local Co-op missions [more to come with the updates]
  • Local Deathmatch arenas
  • An awful a lot of justified violence
  • Powerfully messy guns
  • Milions of fake currency to collect (it can be spend to buy even more powerful guns !)
  • Gadgets which will make running and shooting even more pleasant
  • Achievements
  • And who knows what else [with future news updates]

So all of the Hot Guns gaming mayhem is available now on Steam. Hence this release comes with a 15% discount until May 5th for Linux, SteamOS and Windows PC.

The RPG phenomenon is back in gaming news, Two Worlds II will make a big return.

As we return to Antaloor, this time on Linux and SteamOS.

So Two Worlds II: Call of the Tenebrae throw the Hero into a decades-old mystery. A battle against a hideous, ancient evil known as The Tenebrae. And since the stakes have never been higher. Our hero won’t face this threat alone, with cross-platform co-op and multiplayer. So friends and foes both new and old await the player. All while you fight to discover the truth behind a powerful secret that will shake the Two Worlds universe to its core.

“When we started development on Two Worlds II: Call of the Tenebrae in early 2016. We underestimated how excited our team would be to get back to Antaloor. It took longer than expected. But we ended up with a 10+ hour adventure that is nearly a full sized release. Due to how large Call of the Tenebrae became. We’ve decided to release our game as an add-on to Two Worlds II. So in addition to a standalone version for fans both new and old.” – Alexandra Constandache, CEO TopWare Interactive

Players can expect 10+ hours of thrilling gaming. Therefore you can experience Antaloor like never before. With a major HD engine update. Also packed with new locations, enemies, weapons and achievements. Hence Two Worlds II: Call of the Tenebrae will release on Linux, SteamOS, Mac and Windows PC.

Hence 2 upcoming multiplayer map packs, plus a bunch new deluxe digital content. Including in-game bonus items, the art book, the Two Worlds II compendium. Yet also including game soundtracks and even more.

Update: Two Worlds II: Call of the Tenebrae release delayed June 15th:

“We changed the release date to 15th of June. We need more compatibility testing. Changes from CoT conflict with the main game.”

So Two Worlds II: Call of the Tenebrae new adventure will be an add-on DLC for $9.99 USD. Or buy the Two Worlds II core game separately as a stand-alone title for $14.99 USD. We will have more news and hopefully an official trailer soon.
