    Default Shadowgrounds: Survivor Is Still M.I.A.

    Phoronix: Shadowgrounds: Survivor Is Still M.I.A.

    Well over a year ago we shared that two new PC action games were being ported to Linux. These games were Shadowgrounds and Shadowgrounds: Survivor, but throughout 2008 updates on the Linux clients status were bleak...

    Default Non Violent High Quality Linux Games?

    Guys, a bit off-topic, so sorry for that. But let mes ask.

    Linux games "Top Ten" type of articles/reviews mostly focus on FPS. Is there a good place to search for high quality (both free software and proprietary) Linux games for little kids? (I'd say, ages 2 through 10 or so). I know some of them, like Secret Maryo Chronicles, Super Tux, and such, but I failed to find a good place to keep track of things, because there are so many half baked, version 0.0.0.1/2 games out there ... and so much of a focus on shooter type games.

    Oh well, thanks for any pointers!

    if you look in the package repository for your distro, it should contain a number of games- and if you want strictly kids games, look at the educational sections- KDE has a very nice selection of education apps including games.

    Thanks, Dashcloud! Yes, I do look in synaptic/adept, and there are literally dozens, maybe hundreds of agmes, and really a few are top notch. Same with happy penguin, it's been around for years, but there is too much content, most of which are really 80's looking games

    I was looking for something like this:

    But with a focus in non-violent content (there are a couple gems in that blog).

    Maybe if a place like playdeb (when it goes live) sorts things by popularity, that sort of thing would make sense

    Oh well, thanks!

    You should have checked the LGP page. It's gone gold and will be available in around 2-3 weeks.
