We just got BEEP added to the system today. So if you haven't played it check out the demo for it. It is a pretty cool game.
You can find the game here.
BEEP is a high-definition, action platform game with physics puzzles. You control a small robot equipped with an anti-gravity device, a jet-pack and a gun. Drive, jump, fly, swim and shoot your way through 24 levels scattered across 6 unique environments. Utilize BEEP’s anti-gravity device to manipulate the physics-based environment. The anti-gravity device is as much a tool as a weapon. Use it to smash BEEP’s enemies, build towers and solve puzzles.
Released Bridge Construction Set for Linux today. You have to see how well you can build a bridge and how much weight it will take before it fails.
You can find it here at this URL.
Desura.com Bridge Construction Set
Here is a description from the developer.
Bridge Construction Set is about building a bridge that doesn't break, although watching your bridge creation break and plunge a train into the watery depths below can be half the fun. In Bridge Construction Set you design and build bridges and then stress test them to see how your creations hold up under pressure. When test vehicles pass over your bridge and make it safely across you know you've succeeded. If they plummet into the river you know you need to go back to the drawing board. The robust physics deployed in Bridge Construction Set let you build a unlimited variety of bridges. Try your hand at giant suspension bridges, complex drawbridges, multi-level train and automobile bridges and everything in between. The 3D graphics allow you to view your bridge from any angle including a first person view - it's like being strapped to the front of the train when your bridge is first tested... Bridge Construction Set includes many types of bridge building levels in varying degrees of difficulty.
We have two Linux games that are new to Desura that are available now.
The first is Bullet Candy Perfect. A very cool and hard shoot 'em up.
The second is Irukandji. It is an underwater shoot that again is not easy at all.
The cost of these are $2.99 each so they aren't going to break the bank for you to pick up a copy.
I thought I should mention that we have 3 new Linux games up since I did my last post.
I should also mention that as of today. I received a new copy of Cave Story the 64-Bit version. I am hoping that this will resolve some of the library issues that some of you were having.
I just put up a brand new game, Scoregasm for Linux. It's from Charlie's Games. The game was first released 5 days ago as of today. Some of you may know him from Bullet Perfect and Bullet Perfect Candy. It is a great dual stick shooter with lots of very cool graphics. It will suck you in. There is a demo for the game available. So check it out and see what you think. I think everyone should buy a copy. ;)
Just thought I would post that Neverball and Smoin' Guns are available for download now. I know I am a bit late but thought I would just mention it. I will be posting games as they become available there are 2-3 more new games that should be coming down the pipe soon.
I am going to try and make this a regular thing where I let people know about new Linux games on the system.
