Fresh news for PlayOnLinux

Sunday 17 April 2011 at 2:44

Hi everyone,

On today's menu, two games and one program: Bit. Trip Runner, CreaVures and Desura.

Bit. Trip Runner:
This is a fast and crazy platform and action game. Explore the moon, kick crystal walls down, and dodge gigantic moon snails with equally huge appetites! Drop into the robots' mines and challenge their great engineer!

This is a puzzle and platform game set in a mystical forest. You control five different Creavures, which are diminutive mythical creatures that each possess a unique natural power.

This is a digital game distribution platform like Steam, but focused on community and offering games that have little fame but great design, as well as mods for mainstream games like Half-Life 2 and Crysis.

Coming soon: PlayOnWindows, by the creators of PlayOnLinux!

Friday 1 April 2011 at 0:15

We are very proud to announce that a new project will soon see the light of day!

Introducing: PlayOnWindows!


We noticed that some applications work better using Wine that running them directly on Windows. Also, Microsoft no longer offer support for several of their systems (Windows 3.11, 95, 98, 2000... and soon XP). But some of these systems are still in use today (notably in several businesses).
Lastly, performances leave no doubt: applications run much faster using Wine + Windows 98, for instance, than natively under Windows Vista.

And that's why we decided to create PlayOnWindows.

This will allow you, for example, to use Internet Explorer 7 with Windows 95!

Don't believe us?

Here is visual proof!

Although we still have some details to fix, including the install manager, we are hoping to get the beta version out in the coming weeks.

Of course, PoW will be distributed with a GPLv3 license!

As for the list of supported applications, as of now, it is the same as PlayOnLinux.

The PlayOnLinux team will keep in touch very soon regarding the evolution of this new project. We firmly believe it will be the big buzz in the world of software for 2011!

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood on PlayOnLinux

Thursday 24 March 2011 at 17:53

Good morning,

Enjoying a well-deserved rest in his Montereggioni villa, Ezio Auditore thought his mission was over after he obtained the Apple of Eden. But there is no rest for the Assassin, who must face the retribution of the Borgia family that was bold enough to attack his domain. It's a family of ill despots comfortably installed in Rome, which they control politically, economically and religiously. To exact vengeance, and more importantly to recover the damned apple, Ezio will have to strike back at the Borgias on their own ground and take the city back from them.
