Yeah, for sure. I'm impressed by the quality of those mini-documentaries.

The Dark Mod was featured in the latest issue of PC Gamer U.K., with the feature highlighting a few standout missions for people to try.  

I put the 2.03 update on the TTLG front page. I don't know if anyone even reads the front page at TTLG anymore, but it's there nonetheless.

Ranked Number 2 in the "50 best free PC Games" article at PC Gamer:   http://www.pcgamer.com/the-50-best-free-pc-games/5/   Not too shabby.

EDIT: same post of jaxa, LOL!

Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

Is there an estimated time of arrival for 2.09 ?

The current plan is to start 2.09 beta in December 2020.

Keep in mind that we planned to start 2.08 beta in December 2019 too 😭

In another forum where I made it known, Linux users were delighted with TDM, because the offer of games for this OS is not exactly overwhelming, in this field Windows rules and OSS games are usually quite crappy, while TDM really is comparable in quality to many commercial games.

I can definitely add to this. I ditched Windows 8 years ago, haven't had it on my system since... still can't believe how long I lived on it till finally making this choice. Indeed the only issue is some games being harder to play, especially newer ones as old ones typically work fine under WINE. I didn't notice it much as I rarely touch commercial games any more; Unlike free projects like TDM, which are made by the community and we can fully edit, I don't feel those truly belong to us rather that some company who makes boring stuff just so we give it our money.

We must not forget that TDM isn't just the only FOSS game of its genre: It's one of the only projects with AAA assets and graphics... albeit by 2010's standards, but in my book I would still call them that. Alongside it and Xonotic, most open-source games have pretty cheap assets and a lot of bugs unfortunately... TDM however has long achieved commercial quality, and for something remarkably complex in its core design and the features required.

She says she gets a black screen on launching the new update, even on a fresh install.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.
