    Default An RTS Game Running Internally On Linux

    Phoronix: An RTS Game Running Internally On Linux

    Last month I wrote how 2013 would be "the year of Linux gaming", but it turns out already in the three weeks to this year there's already been some surprise Linux game announcements thanks to Valve's Linux support...

    This game is awesome and I hope it will be released for Linux soon. Btw. I have a bonus Steam key I can spare for free if someone's interested. Just PM me.

    Default What about open source RTS games?

    Why phoronix never ever gave some credit to some well playable open source RTS games? Besides 0.A.D.

    I never ever seen you give some credit to spring engine games like

    seriously man make article or two they are more than worthy. And now you instead keep posting some this game gets some minor enchantments... and while other games are completely forgotten.

    Default Nice

    Thanks for those links Wolas. There are a lot of good games that run on Linux that are just plain hidden and not talked about. The Spring RTS engine is very nice and I recommend people install it and find some nice games to play. This looks pretty good but not really my thing. Linux needs a Jump Start from some company like EA to port over at least one good AAA title to get the ball rolling. Valve is gonna port over HL2, but seriously, that's old news. But HL3 available for Linux on 1st day would be spectacular and Blizzard releasing their internal WoW Linux port would be nice.

    I found another MMO I have yet to play called Forgotten Elements. I downloaded the Client but haven't had a chance to try it; It's looks similar to D2. Eternal Lands is a good one also and has a PPA available. By the way, GetDeb and PlayDeb have been discontinued if you haven't heard the news. Linux game database is a good place to find games.

    EA? On Linux? I'd just veto them as I have for Windows. The way they treat their staff and their games.

    Spring is also a great game set up with lots of options for playstyles and themes similar to this game post.

    And dont forget the ages-old but still definately playable Warzone 2100!

    If this comes to Linux, oh boy. Seems like some developers do want my money!

    Sorry guys, the game looks awesome, but the subject of the game is something I personally do not like as a citizen of that territory.
