Valve Announce the SteamOS

Valve Announce the SteamOS

Valve have made their first reveal of the week and it is a bit more all encompassing than I for one first thought. I was expecting simply a reveal of the Steam Box today, instead we have received word of SteamOS, Valve’s foray into replacing Windows and Mac on what is a Linux based system. There is bound to be a lot to take in from the next two announcements (next coming Wednesday) over this week, so you can find a brief run-down after the break.

The Rise of Linux Continues – Euro Truck Simulator 2 Nearing Delivery

The Rise of Linux Continues – Euro Truck Simulator 2 Nearing Delivery

The rise of Linux as a gaming platform seems to gather momentum every week with new games, software and hardware being confirmed to use the operating system at a growing rate. Doubtless the growth of the penguin friendly OS is in part down to the Steam Beta client for Linux, but it is great to see that Euro Truck Simulator 2 will soon be available on Linux, initially in beta form.

I haven’t used Linux at all yet, but the growing number of games that are being released on it might make me think twice about not checking it out. I wouldn’t be surprised if 2013 is the year that Linux breaks into the mainstream. Meanwhile, I just wonder how long we have to wait for ETS 2 to get released on Steam, hopefully it won’t be much longer.

Teaser Trailer for Tomorrow Corporation’s Little Inferno

Teaser Trailer for Tomorrow Corporation’s Little Inferno

As a massive fan of the work that Kyle Gabler (2D Boy, World of Goo), Kyle Gray (Henry Hatsworth) and Allan Blomquist have all been involved with, I have been keeping my eye on their latest development group, Tomorrow Corporation for quite a while. My constant refreshing of the Tomorrow Corporation site has paid off as the three indie legends have released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming title, Little Inferno. Their new title, due Winter 2012 for PC, Mac, Linux and WiiU is 100% indie and DRM free and will take place almost entirely in front of a fireplace. You really need to watch the teaser after the break to get a feel for the game, but be warned that I could describe the trailer with any one of these phrases: warming, chilling, enlightening, harrowing, joyful, musical, cute, colourful, dark and perhaps most important, intriguing.
