GamesFrom Linux Games:

Mindware Studios has released a Linux demo of their stealth-action game Cold War (thanks linuX-gamers.net). Here's the announcement from Mindware's Patrik Rak:

After some discussions with Dreamcatcher we have decided to release the Cold War Linux Demo ourselves. So I can finally provide you all with the BitTorrent link: http://www.mindwarestudios.com/download/coldwar_demo.torrent. Please note that our uplink is quite slow so I would appreciate if you would consider to help us and seed it.

In case you encounter any problems with this demo, please check this forum first and only if you don't find any solution for your problem, feel free to post your report here. Alternatively send it to cwlinuxdemo@mindwarestudios.com. Please do not bother Dreamcatcher help support regarding this demo as they won't be able to help you - this was a condition for being able to release the demo ourselves.

Quake 4 Has Arrived!  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, October 18 2005 @ 09:33 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

GamesFrom Phoronix:

Although we don't cover many retail software game launches here at Phoronix, unless of course they happen to be native to GNU/Linux, today is one of the days this year in which Linux, and Windows, gamers can be ecstatic over, and that's the long awaited launch of Quake 4. Continuing on where Quake 2 had left off, you play as Matthew Kane who is a member of the Elite Rhino Squad, which coincidently is leading the next wave of Earth's invasion.

Quake 4 Gold  View Printable Version 
Thursday, October 06 2005 @ 07:41 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

GamesFrom Linux Games:

id Software, Raven Software, and Activision have announced that Quake 4 has gone gold (declared ready for manufacturing). Here's the press blurb via Shacknews:

The long awaited sequel to QUAKE II, QUAKE 4 enlists gamers in the role of Matthew Kane, a member of the Earth Defense Force's legendary Rhino Squad, to penetrate deep into the heart of the Strogg war machine and engage in a series of heroic missions to destroy the barbaric alien race. "On October 18, QUAKE is dialing it up to 4.0 on the Richter Scale with this new chapter in Earth's war against the Strogg," said Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software. "Fusing an epic war-story driven single player campaign, and fast-paced QUAKE III Arena inspired multiplayer, QUAKE 4 delivers a gaming experience fans will be raving about for years." As Hollenshead states, the PC CD/DVD retail editions ship to stores on October 18th; the DVD special edition ships with Quake II and its expansion packs.

id Software's Timothee Besset has stated that the Linux client for Quake 4 should be available within a few weeks of the retail package's arrival in stores.

Gaming Open Source  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, October 04 2005 @ 06:59 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

GamesFrom Linux Planet:

Open source software and code pops up within the game industry in numerous ways. On one end of the spectrum there are, of course, the open source games that many of us know and love like FreeCiv and Tux Racer. On the other end are the proprietary games whose source has been opened such as Quake III and other games from Id Software. In the middle are games that might incorporate open source software either within them where legally possible, in the operating systems they run on--some Massively Multiplayer Online RolePlaying Game (MMORPG) worlds run on Linux and the various free BSDs for example, or were built using open source tools.

Quake 3: Arena Source GPL'ed  View Printable Version 
Saturday, August 20 2005 @ 02:56 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

GamesFrom Linux Games:

The full source code to Quake 3: Arena (and associated tools) has been released under the GNU General Public License by id Software.

"While we made sure we were still able to compile the game on Windows, GNU/Linux and Mac, this build didn't get any kind of extensive testing so it may not work completely right. Whenever an id game is released under GPL, several projects start making the source code more friendly to nowaday's compilers and environements...."

Tux found alive and well in Planet Penguin Racer  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, August 16 2005 @ 08:22 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

GamesFrom Newsforge:

What happened to Tux? Soon after Sunspirestudios took Tux Racer commercial in 2001, our beloved open source Tux seemed to vanish from the program. Did he lose control and fly off a cliff? Was he a victim of a kidnaping plot from Redmond? No matter -- thanks to the PlanetPenguin Racer (PPRacer) project, Tux is back with a vengeance, in a significant upgrade over what the open source Tux Racer offers.

Does Linux Have Game?  View Printable Version 
Friday, December 31 2004 @ 12:16 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

GamesFrom Tom's Hardware Guide:

Earlier this year, our Linux Comes to the Desktop article caused a stir, when we stated that gaming on a Linux platform remained a limited proposition. Now it is time to detail why this is the case. We will explore what is the best you can hope for when you opt for the penguin to play Unreal and Doom III. We will also look at why Linux lovers must be contented with the state of things -- for the time being, that is, because things are looking up for the Linux gaming crowd.

So why is wide-scale gaming support for Linux not 100% there? A better question may be: why would game developers spend the money to add Linux functionality to games for a limited number of users? The answer is not that simple, especially since Linux desktop use continues to grow.
