Hi folks and hypothetical readers.
This is really just small reminder to write, proof that the WordPress weekly reminder works.
So really, I wanted to go and write something more useful and meaningful, but it just happens that this previous and following weeks are busy ones.
Mostly due to my new job as a Outback waiter, which started last month as training but now is just really kicking in to earn something. Though I like this kind of job, it sure is hard work, over hours to get stuff done, running around all the time, six hours with no seating at all, late nights. And specially this week is work all around with only one day off. But I think it will be worth it, all in one, it’s really good to hear a satisfied costumer.
Anyway, another reason to be busy( and I blame this on my friend Humberto), is that I’ve found a really interesting new game called Banished, simple enough just a game about settlers in the wilderness, you have to help them build a village and survive throughout generations.
Firstly I tried it out with illegal download, after all the game is only for Windows and I use Linux and OSX, I require some experimental time, of the game itself and how it will work on my system, before committing to it.
So at first I just install it on my laptop and actually use its windows OS for the first time( its dual-boot with Debian), fall in love instantly with the game, there is just something, seeing your villagers thrive and procreate in the wild, and of course the curiosity and figuring out the new game.
And this is something I want to share too, I’ve spent some time figuring out how to play the actual game, but also some time on how to get it working on Linux under wine, though initially it had several problems it does actually work now, except for a buggy sound which surely will fixed anytime soon.
Besides that, the developer clearly showed intent to port the game to Linux and mac systems, this is a huge plus one with me and I’ll sure buy it.
If you’re interested its available on the Humble Store, which happens to be my favorite destination on buying indie games, specially if you happen to find some of their great deals.
Well its late for me and cheers to anyone reading this post, I’ll try to post soon on how to get Banished working on Linux, and how actually survive the game. Bye.
