Drodin has ported the classic Linux game, Extreme Tux Racer, to the PlayBook. The game is open source but they are charging $1.99 for it in App World. Either way the classic Linux game is quite fun on the PlayBook even in beta form.
There's going to be a successor to Steel Storm, an indie action shooter game. Steel Storm 2, however, will be a first person shooter.
Development is still early on for Steel Storm 2, but it's now been publicly announced and there's a teaser web-site. The teaser site reads "Steel Storm 2 is an old-school FPS in the spirit of Doom and Quake. It's spin off in the original Steel Storm universe. Linux is served first."

Long ago, the Dark Lord Dredmor was bound in the darkest dungeons beneath the earth by great and mighty heroes.

The land cries out for a new hero, a powerful warrior or a mystic wizard like those spoken of in the prophecies of yore.

There are not many people that are immune from the charms of computer games at some stage of their life. Even the father of Linux, Linus Torvalds, is reported to have been hooked on playing a single game for a month.
In some circles games are regarded as a distraction and a time waster. However, there are many benefits to playing computer games other than the obvious simple unadulterated fun that they offer. Games can help break up the monotony of the daily grind, offering an escape from the harsh reality of real life. Some games offer cooperative gameplay, which focus on fun and interaction with others, encouraging participation and working as a team solving task-oriented goals. Other sorts of games help to exercise the grey matter instead. These are just a few examples of the positive attributes of computer games.
Here's something interesting, but all of the details are not yet known at this time as the official announcement doesn't seem to have been issued yet. TransGaming, the company behind the Cedega software for running Windows games on Linux, is going to be replacing the Cedega Gaming Service with something now called GameTree Linux.

You had to wait a long time, far too long already. But now the time has come, WoP, in version 1.5, is available for download - for Windows and Linux. The Mac users have to wait a little bit longer unfortunately, but, rest assured, we haven't forgotten you!
We had planned to publish WoP 1.5 within this year and had to work on it until the very last second.
The proprietary game "Minecraft", which is written in Java, may have been inspired by Sauerbraten (also known as "Cube 2"). Minecraft is a browser-based first person "Sandbox" style adventure game where you can connect with other players over the Internet and build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D world. This kind of game isn't new, in fact if you've ever searched the Internet for Free multi-platform first person shooters, you've probably heard of Cube 2: Sauerbraten.

The world of Auteria is the setting for this MMORPG with its diverse range of landscapes, from Jungles to deserts, mountains to caves, villages to cities. Whilst you will probably agree that this is a rather common setting for a MMORPG even on Linux which has a more limited choice than other platforms, theres something that makes Auteria stand out from alternatives and this review will explore that further.

Ok, everyone knows you can play games on Linux. But what spring to mind when I think about games on Linux are board games, pacman and, at best, Tux Racer and TORC. But good quality 3D games are something that we never associate with Linux. People come up with lots of excuses why there can be no good games on Linux. No, we are not going to list them here.
