Return of the Tentacle

Return of the Tentacle (license ???, https://catmic.itch.io/return-of-the-tentacle) is a fan made game and unofficial sequel to “Day of the Tentacle”. The fully released game is available free to play on itch.io.

Stage 9 0.0.10

Stage 9 (license ???, https://stage-9.co.uk ***not available anymore***) tries to recreate the Enterprise D from the Star Trek Next Generation in the Unreal Engine 4. It is based on the TV series. You can download the version 0.0.10 for Linux and play the pre-alpha release. If you add “-vulkan” as a start parameter, then you can start the game but currently no input is possible at least with RADV, it is possible that this is a bug of UE4 or game, but it is more likely it is an issue of xorg 1.20.1 in fullscreen Vulkan apps. Video example of the latest released version:

Tomb Raider 2 – The Dagger of Xian

Tomb Raider 2 – DOX (license ???, http://tombraider-dox.com) is a fan remake of the classic game with the Unreal Engine 4 that you can play in this early access version. Even though it is made with the Unreal Engine, a Linux build with OpenGL or Vulkan support has not been created and you need to use Wine with DX11, but the game is 64bit and works on Vulkan via DXVK.
