Nemesys, a game studio run out of Budapest, is porting their game titles to Linux. The studio's current titles include Fortix 2, A.C.S, and Ignite. Nemesys Ignite, in particular, is a very promising racing game that will surely roar things up for Linux...
I'm totally buying Fortix 2 and Ignite as soon as they have them ready to go. Fortix reminds me of Gals Panic from the arcade, and Ignite is just effing sweet! The air traffic control thing isn't my cup of tea.
wow Ignite is really cool... but hopefully the openGL renderer rock da house.
means we need FBO based rendering not pbuffer and we need at minimum shader model 3 and VTF Vertex texture fetch.
you can use all this on directX 9 cards... but without these features a game is outdated.
the next step is HDR rendering (openGL3) and Tessellation (OpenGL4)
but the most import parts are FBO+Shader3+VTF
sure you don't need openGL3 or OpenGL4 for a great game.
