Hey fellow readers, first Happy New Year 2021! Did you all have a good holiday break? We’ve got a lot of good stuff going on here at Boiling Steam, and we wanted to share some of it with you!
First, as you may have already noticed in December, we finally got a logo! It took a while to decide which direction we wanted, but we are happy with the result. We hope you like it too!
Note: if you’re using a dark reader extension with your browser, you may need to adjust the brightness settings for this site in particular, since the extension may interfere with the background color. Adjusting the brightness to 25 with Dark Reader fixes this.
Second, we welcome Patola to the team. He’s a seasoned Linux user who is also very experienced in everything VR-related. You may have already seen his first article on Promods Canada. He’s working on more VR content as we speak, which is great as this is something we barely addressed on Boiling Steam until now. Expect more VR content as well since both podiki and cow_killer have secured their own Index headsets not long ago – podiki wrote an extensive article on his first impressions with it.
Third, we now have forums. This will allow us to establish a stronger connection with our community. Feel free to add to the discussion over there after creating an account, or create your own topics under the appropriate sections. We have just started to add a few topics, but really, that space is for you all to interact in.
Finally, we’re working on a compilation of the best articles we’ve written, from the birth of Boiling Steam to today. Such articles include:
- Proton: The Native Port Killer?
- Steam Machines: Was It All in Vain?
- How to emulate Nintendo Switch games on Linux
- Life Is Strange review
- Podiki’s journey to Linux
- The DualSense review
- A look at the PinePhone
Among many others. You can pre-order a copy on Gumroad; we’re looking to have this out in Q1 2021. We’re asking for $1 minimum, and $5 the recommended amount, but you can pay for what you want, as long as it’s a dollar or more. We’re also looking to add this compilation as a Kindle Edition on Amazon at some point. By purchasing this, you are supporting the growth of Boiling Steam. Thank you in advance!
Note that if you want to join the team, we are always looking for good people and you can reach us through the contact form at the bottom of this page.
That’s it for now! We hope you will keep enjoying your journey with us as Linux gaming continues to grow and thrive. Have a great year ahead!
