Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised with the rate stuff is going if @gamingonlinux didn't exist this time next year.

Struggling. We've had a notable drop in funding, Linux users themselves often don't care if a game actually supports them or not and the list goes on.

If everything turns into "just use Proton", we are basically out of business for so many reasons including: most developers don't even reply to us for keys to test/video/talk about or whatever.

We branched out to cover a lot more areas like distros, desktops, followed more open source stuff and so on but it's really mentally testing. I'm feeling 100% demoralised today, when I constantly read about Linux people not giving a shit if anyone even supports Linux now.

@Sirsquid I'm planning on buying a Linux laptop so I'll follow gaming on Linux with extra attention from now on 👍. Sending hugs 🤗

@Sirsquid @gamingonlinux While I understand the frustration, there are still people who care. I just preordered the next Amnesia, mainly because it's a day-one Linux supported game.

But that doesn't mean I don't like Proton, because it allows to play games on an otherwise more open and FOSS platform than Windows. It's not ideal, but it's also a convenience for people to jump to Linux, because otherwise they might have never switched to it in the first place.

How can we help?  I'll keep my donations active.

@Sirsquid @gamingonlinux backed on Patreon! I don't interact with GoL much, but I absorb it ambiently. I hope you can keep working on it. I'm sad about the lack of native ports.

@Sirsquid Sorry to hear that. Coincidentally I felt a little betrayed yesterday when I realized that a new game I was waiting for isn't available on Linux, so apparently I still care.

I've increased the amount of my recurrent donation on Liberapay.
