    Default A New Linux Game To Try And Benchmark

    Phoronix: A New Linux Game To Try And Benchmark

    While most of the native Linux games that can be easily automated are built atop the id Tech engine or some spin-off there of the open-source id Tech 2/3/4 engines, here's something new to play with this weekend. There's also some early results to explore...

    Default ugh.

    holy crap that looks ugly.

    the lack of texturing is not the worst part. rather it's the lack of visually consistent style and imagination.

    I seem to be stuck on the monitor refresh rate with radeon, like glxgears

    //edit: you did notice that the nouveau and radeon driver use different resolutions?

    Why do all the negative type posters seem to need an RSS feed?
    The game uses cell shading looking textures and looks better than the screenshots used on Phoronix. http://corebreach.corecode.at/CoreBreach/Pictures.html

    The CoreBreach creator always responds politely, has now helped out Phoronix, and wants to open source his game after enough sales. Hopefully the people who tried to back Gravitaz on Kickstarter http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...itaz?ref=users or were hoping for Impulse to be released http://www.indiedb.com/games/impulse will get behind CoreBreach.

    Default DRM

    Any idea what is going on with DRM? They say "DRM Free (Unlimited activations)" but of course activations are a form of DRM so that is contradictory. I also don't see a way of paying Core directly and downloading from them. I don't want yet another account on yet another service and be restricted to getting the game and updates that way.
