Linux users are a joke to them. Remember these days?

But hey, at the end of the day its your money you're free to choose what you want to do with it. Personally, I just use Steam.

KDE Plasma 6 gets double-click to open by default and other improvements
30 August 2023 at 3:55 am UTC

Quoting: Mountain ManSingle click to open is the right way as far as I'm concerned. It just makes the most sense when you consider that the interface in every other piece of software you use on a computer only requires single clicks, so why should the desktop be the sole exception?

Because of Windows. I grew up on Windows, and first experienced single click in KDE when trying to select a file. I thought my mouse button was super sensitive or something.

Quoting: Avehicle7887They didn't treat Mac and Linux users nicely on GOG so I'm not sad to see them go.

Good riddance

Why support GOG then? They don't treat Linux users nicely.

Quoting: ThomasI haven't played any of the Money Island games yet because of lack of time. Can the game be enjoyed without playing the previous games?

Quoting: CatKillerWith all due respect to Ron Gilbert, I'm extremely skeptical of any "we pinky-swear that we'll release a native Linux build Real Soon Now"

Fair enough, but Ron Gilbert was also the one who said:

"Over 1/3 of Thimbleweed Park sales are are on Mac and Linux. You're being silly if your ignoring that."

When I launched it, it was looking for "hand of glory.exe". It works when you manually run the "start" script. Its in the same location of where its looking for the exe. I made a note of it on the Steam forums.

Quoting: BielFPsI hope Microsoft doesn't a$k Valve to reconsider

I have altered the deal. Pray I don't alter it any further!

Maybe in the past, but now its worse here in NSW. And you guys are killing it with renewables!

Deck-building roguelite Griftlands from Klei is out now and it's wonderful

I've never played any of these deck building games. It was a bit of a learning curve! The tutorial didn't really cut it for me, I still had no idea what I was doing. One short You Tube clip later and it all started to make a bit more sense!
