    Default The Status Of Unigine's Linux-Compatible Game

    Phoronix: The Status Of Unigine's Linux-Compatible Game

    Earlier this year we shared that Unigine was working on a new game that was being developed internally and would run on Linux with their continually improving game engine that already sets an OpenGL precedent on Linux. Following that we did a Linux interview with the Unigine developers to talk about their proprietary engine, gaming on Linux, etc...

    Well, I wouldn't say, that this is not a god year for Linux games. I sh** on UT3 for Linux and wouldn't buy it anymore (not for 5). ID will come back (I belive ).

    But we have something realy god in the pipeline. It's Heroes of Newerth. I love this game and I think it's one of the best/will be one of the bes Linux games ever.

    World of Goo alone was a big win for linux gaming this year, but I guess it doesn't have a benchmarking mode

    Default Linux Gaming

    Actually, emerging cloud services for gaming (GaiKai, OnLive, both in Beta) might bring *lots* of great games to Linux as soon as next spring. Maybe we are just like in 2001, thinking if e-mail client as good as Outlook will be available on Linux too while something way better (gmail) was on the way.

    I doubt these services will be available in Australia anytime soon, and even when they are nobody outside the cities will really be able to play with a half decent latency.

    Putting aside the likelihood that some stupid copyright law will probably stop us from getting the same service as in the USA, I doubt I could afford the subscription fee. I would much rather buy the hardware, Windows (if needed) and the game. If a gamer is in the financial situation to be able to easily pay the monthly fee they would probably have the money to buy a computer capable of playing the games they want.

    Our residential internet plans down here are always capped, I would imagine that streaming games over the net at a decent resolution would eat our monthly download limits in a week, taking this into account it seems that these services are extremely expensive.

    Yes, World of Goo was a very good game. But it was a little bit short, for my taste.

    Exciting new developments in the area of longevity drugs means it's not too late for UT3 Linux!

    The only thing, I can tell about UT3 for Linux is: "Holy Shit!"
