    Oceania is a new Kickstarter-backed MMORPG game being developed atop the visually impressive Unigine Engine. Native Linux support for this massively multiplayer online role playing game is being planned...

    Is it going to be subscription only, free with paid premium features, completely free or something else?

    As a question to Mike Frett, what is it about Linux that makes you want people to use it? For many it is because of the ideals of free software that we want it to succeed, while for others it is because they prefer the Linux way of doing things. You are saying we should be making Linux more like Windows, but why would it be needed then? We have a fully functional Windows like system already, it is called Windows, and since you do not particularly care about free software I am left confused as to why you wish to promote the system in the first place. What about it do you draw value from?

    Ok, so the game will be "B2P" ... "Buy2Play", same deal as Guild Wars... Buy the game, no sub-fees :-)

    Sounds good, I'll probably give them some for their Linux efforts.

    Depends on your outlook. The vast majority of Kickstarter games that I have seen use Unity, just because it has good cross-platform support, and that's important for independent developers.

    The market seems to have basically fallen out of high-graphics and high-resource engines. The emphasis seems to be on ease of development and portability these days, and it is on these merits where Unity soars compared to even the quite cross-platform Unigine.
