Hello all, I could not see a post about this new game (or any other games in the Linux forum for that matter?) so thought to bring people's attention to it with this post.

The game was released a couple of weeks ago, and of course, is available for Linux.

I purchased a copy and have played approximately 10-15 hours of the game (until my desktop disappeared). I am impressed and can recommend it to anyone who enjoys fantasy role-playing games and/or is familiar with Dungeons & Dragons and/or Pathfinder. It does have quite a steep learning curve, for those who are not familiar with Pathfinder or Dungeons & Dragons it can difficult to understand. Anyway, here a couple of links for you to check the game out for yourselves:

I must be considered 'odd' by the majority.

 

Never really understood the hours & hours some folks seem to 'waste' on stuff like this. The last time I played any sort of computer game was on a mate's PS/2 back around 2000; one of the early 'Driver' games, IIRC. Messed around with it for a few days, then thought, 'Ah, to hell with this crap...'

 

Having said which, I spend a lot of time in some of my many graphics & multimedia apps, designing, building, working on stuff. Like as not others would consider that time totally 'wasted'. At least I have something to show for it at the end of the day..!

 

Still; to each their own. We all have different likes/dislikes.....it takes all sorts to make the world go round. I will say, however, that there can't be too many people who come to Linux with the primary intention of using it as a gaming platform. It still doesn't have that kind of support.....and probably never will, TBH.
