Never played the original back in the day…
Only had a crappy Celeron 700Mhz pc, with 64MB of ram and 8MB of intel integrated graphics

what a beast :sweat_smile:

Was hoping this would’ve been my chance to catch up…

Nah…I highly recommend you get your hands on original (CD version, not gog or steam version, coz they’ve removed one of absolutely best things about it - music) - it’s one of the best games ever made.

Ages like a good wine or book.

P.S. However actually you can restore music for any version :upside_down_face:

Early Access available tonight:



If they even manage to pull half of this stuff off, I’d be impressed…

Been playing the current state of the game for the past week, but for now it doesn’t convince me 100%,
this add-on will be a game-changer for me (see what I did there? :joy: ), if they do it right at least…

Extremely useful list of games which use Denuvo

It’s very handy for targeting and not supporting games which do use this crap, or games which you must :pirate_flag: if you want your system and body to keep healthy :slight_smile:


I mean, :pirate_flag: can also hide some pretty nasty :poop:

Of course, :pirate_flag: games may contain malware. However, the official releases absolutely do contain malware.

Thus the choice is between maybe malware or surely malware, and so, if you want to be safe, just don’t play those games.

Also, for legal purposes, and to any secret police agents assigned to my case reading this, I’d like to point out that I disavow any illegal activities. I find completely abhorrent all this talk about breaking the Law which our benevolent political class has inflicted upon selflessly gifted to us for our own well-being.


That’s true, obviously when using :pirate_flag: you need to not turn off :brain: and use trustworthy, uncompromized sources :male_detective:

But @Kresimir laid down situation exactly right, i can only add that Denuvo is way worse than just malware to be quite honest…It’s also a backdoor + all that jazz

Yeah, it’s a matter of possible vs. actual. Aristotle wrote about that. :face_with_monocle:

Many games purchased through legal services like Steam come with rootkits and just obnoxious malware.

The Signifier

The Signifier is a first-person tech-noir mystery adventure that blends investigation, experimental psychology, and artificial intelligence.

Explore the real and surreal worlds, become immersed in fringe psychology, solve puzzles, and find the truth as Frederick Russell, an expert in AI and psychology, and the main researcher behind an experimental deep brain scanner called the Dreamwalker. Its controversial technology allows the exploration of the recorded senses and unconscious realms of the mind. He finds himself thrust into a spiral of intrigue when asked to use his creation after the vice president of the world’s biggest tech company turns up dead in her apartment.

Game Features

  • Three coexisting dimensions to explore: reality, and the objective memories and subjective dreams in the mindscape
  • Move between realms to solve puzzles, unlock new dialog branches, and unravel the mystery
  • Learn psychological concepts to use powers and tools for navigating the strange and unpredictable unconsciousness
  • Every challenge is part of the mystery that creates unique moments with no filler
  • A multi-layer narrative that spirals into a complex web of real-world intrigue as surreal suspense
  • Get immersed in thought provoking tension, free from jump scares
  • Question the implications of AI, intrusion to the consciousness, privacy, and whether we see the world as it is or a subjective creation of our minds

Looks like this game is a little :crazy_face:



Makes sense in 21 days we could have Cyberpunk 2020 IRL with better graphics, they just wait for it! :rofl:

Not sure if you all have seen this article yet or not, but this seems pretty exciting. If this does actually end up coming to fruition, we could have a fix for running games that use Easy Anti Cheat and DRM built right into kernel 5.11 when it releases. Such an exciting time to be a linux gamer! :smiley:


To be honest i’m really not sure that is a good or exciting idea…

Meaning - i’d rather kill myself (go full GNU or BSD :rofl: ), than allow anything related to DRM / anti-cheat crap come anywhere near Kernel, this is nuts.

How about just a bunch of those stupid games change their idiotic DRM / anti-cheat instead?
I don’t want to compromise system because of somebody want to play online game. :exploding_head:

I hope Linus have enough middle fingers for them :laughing:


The moment you accept this, any difference between Linux and proprietary OSs will be simply cosmetic. You may as well use Windows or Mac, then.

No kernel that does the bidding of corporations against my wishes will run on my computers. I will not use a kernel that is defective by design. And that certainly includes (but is not limited to) enforcing various DRM schemes.

The patch in question doesn’t “enforce” DRM in any way.
It’s called “syscall user dispatcher” for a reason :wink:
I put the v6 for 5.9 up here, but haven’t actually used it yet.


Maybe i missed the point, but ain’t it basically a backdoor potentially opened for anything like those Kernel based DRM and alike?
I mean no one forces you to use those games, but it doesn’t look like a safe way to allow it at all…

Can you explain technical details a bit?

Sorry I do not understand C :slight_smile:
For technical details, you can read the README at the end of the patch I linked above.

I’m pretty sure that the kernel devs wouldn’t allow a patch that has drastic implications on security. And there’s still some way to go until 5.11 :slight_smile: we’ll see what the kernel devs are going to do.
