I'm testing a Steam devcomp which has a Linux depot and a Windows depot, but weirdly, my Steam Deck would download the Windows depot by default.

I asked Steam about this, and they said that only Steam Verified games would download the Linux build by default.

Now you know 馃榾

Unity update their terms to clarify new terms aren't forced on game devs (who don't update to newer Unity versions) https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2023/11/unity-update-their-terms-to-clarify-new-terms-arent-forced-on-game-devs/

I've been making more use of GDQuest's emacs package this last week and... wow, #GameDev is suddenly a much more pleasant experience. Being able to use tools I'm comfortable with and just open Godot to edit levels or run the game is quite nice.

I released my Narrat Jam 2 game yesterday 鉁ㄢ I made a lazy post about it at 2am but I was sleepy and it wasn't great, so here's more info.

馃崅 鈥婣 walk through the forest 馃崅鈥

Playable on :html5::ms_computer::ms_gamepad::ms_computer_mouse:

This is a game where you walk through a forest, looking at pictures and identifying plants.

It is not at all a game about random ramblings of my brain :ms_shush:

It's meant to be a chill reflective experience that hopefully will fill your brain with thoughts.

I couldn't agree more with the sentiment in the article. The trust between Unity and developers has been shattered. As indie developers, we invest significant time and effort into our projects. It's disheartening to work with an engine when we can't be sure if its rules will remain stable, potentially leading to major financial challenges down the road. 馃幃馃挃 #UnityRuntimeFee #GameDev

Unity introduces new fees for game devs based on revenue and game installs - article updated based on responses from Unity (it's not looking great) https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2023/09/unity-introduces-new-fees-for-game-devs-based-on-revenue-and-game-installs/

#Unity #GameDev


Huh, so Unity has reached the killing-the-golden-goose point of their enshittification: https://www.gamedeveloper.com/business/unity-to-start-charging-fee-pegged-to-game-installs

20c per install doesn't sound like much to PC users, but that's potentially enough to nuke mobile gaming entirely. Which they know, because they also run the stats system mobile devs use to calculate ARPU/ARPPU.

Unreal taking a small cut of revenue works fine. That's based on you know, money you made.

Unity charging based on "Installs" might actually cost you money in mobile space. Or if you do a PS+ freebie. Or GamePass. Or especially an EpicStore freebie. They know what they're doing, and it's fucking evil.

EDIT: it's listed under monthly? This might be a monthly fee? Unclear.
