@Tak I can't begin to tell you how important your crew's work has been to us. We are a full blown linux unity3d gamedev studio. The past year, the Linux editor beta has seen profound progress (we know, we've been using it.) I never hesitate to evangelize the linux beta (preview!!!! ZOMG!!!) and I'm starting to sound like the Unity3d linux equivalent of a crossfit guy.
This is immensely exciting, and I'm so glad to have been a small part of it:
"Unity Editor for Linux is now in Preview"
This is something I have been working toward, alongside many others, during my entire career at Unity.
It took a lot of "hack weeks," 20% time, and other donated time to get off the ground; it came within a hair's breadth of being terminated multiple times.
We fought to keep it alive, to get it onto the release track, to keep it from being shipped with special license restrictions.
It's great to finally see our work having a public impact.
So Amir Rajan and I shipped A Dark Room, a game we rebuilt from scratch for the Nintendo Switch. After a hectic launch day, a few hours later in a quieter moment, I found myself realizing: holy shit, I shipped a console game I wrote from scratch.
I've been doing this for 20 years, and I _know_ this is a shitty metric, but goddamn, I felt totally legit yesterday.

My friend's father passed away, and she's asking for some financial support. If any of you are writers or game devs she does game writing and proofreading commissions, and she also has a patreon and kofi.
We'll use these funds to port the Godot editor to the web, implement WebRTC and further networking features, and 3D demos!

Last week we released The Away Team: Lost Exodus v2.9, featuring several difficulty tweaks for Clarke 67 and some small bug fixes. Thanks to PalicoPadge, whose recent videos (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkLG67k4e7kfJx0pc1dLFEojnGq0m3Kmo) helped us identify these!
