Challenging platformer VVVVVV gets a big upgrade and now Steam Deck Verified

Quoting: const
Quoting: artixbtwJudging by the title, I got excited thinking the game had an expansion of some sort, more levels or something. Oh well.

The upgrades are nice and all, but that game takes lots of patience to complete. Unless I get super nostalgic for it (and yes, it has been a while), I'm not doing it :p

I don't consider myself a good gamer nor a completionist, but I finished VVVVVV twice. One of my favorite games of all time :)

Same. I've collected all 20 trinkets at least twice on PC, and once on Android too. It also has one of my all time favorite soundtracks, which I still listen to regularly.

I'm not a big fan of branching story lines, but I enjoyed A Golden Wake and Lamplight City, so I'll get this one for sure too.

Quoting: fleskLooks interesting, and so does their previous game, which I hadn't heard of before I read this article.

To be honest, I found the previous one... bland.

That seems to be the common consensus in Steam reviews too, plus that the puzzles are on the easy side, and that it only takes about three hours to play through. It's currently on sale though, and it might be a nice palate cleanser after Lucy Dreaming, so I might buy it in spite of that.

This is the first campaign I've backed in a while, but I enjoyed Unforseen Incidents, and Application Systems Heidelberg is an awesome publisher.

Top-down paper-folding puzzle adventure Paper Trail talks up Steam Deck support

Quoting: Goggo66It's from the same creator of Hue, which is also a very clever puzzle game.

I was hoping that this game would get a Linux version too, since Hue does.

I don't remember why, but I'm "friends" with the creator on LinkedIn. Could be that I was a beta tester for the Linux version of Hue, and that's why, but I'm not sure anymore if I was or not.

Looks like a lot of fun. And it's supposed to get a Linux version?

Quoting: plaidphantomHue has one of my favorite soundtracks of all time, and the puzzles are ingenious. I highly recommend it!

I'd forgotten the soundtrack, but I've bought it on Bandcamp now, and I agree that it's very good.

Dolphin Emulator for GameCube and Wii is coming to Steam

It seems a bit odd to me to make it a little bit more convenient to download the emulator by adding it to Steam, when the big hurdle is making legal copies of the games to be able to use it at all. Although I guess it's a way to get some more visibility, and even if they end up being taken off Steam, that's probably going to be OK too, since then it will be newsworthy in the wider gaming press. Attention doesn't hurt, even for an open source project, so maybe it's mostly a marketing move.

LEGO Bricktales to get a free Easter content update

I bought the game yesterday, and I'm loving it! One thing that I find a bit annoying though, is that the screen occasionally flickers a bit when playing, and I have no idea what's causing it. The game has also frozen on me on the splash screen a couple of times, but other than that, it works smoothly.
