So last time I was on top of Curl and what problems can come out when you are using it through out different distributions. After that struggle UnReal World RPG have been ported to SDL2. It’s used by Steam so it should we available every distribution you can dream of. How wrong I can be and how correct I am! (more…)

When I was kid Commodore 64 was big thing and I played ‘Gateway to Apshai‘ hour after hour. It really hit me. Others liked Ultimas but ‘Gateway to Apshai’ was THE thing to me. Years after C64 was gone with the wind I found world of Rogue, Omega and Nethack. Sweetest of them was Omega. Omega’s World map was big and you could do what ever you like and wander around and you didn’t have to fight all the time. As this was a long, long time ago none of those games are no more in active development but Sami Maaranen is still developing unique northern hemisphere survival game called UnReal World RPG.

Today I was reading the openSUSE forums and found an interesting thread on the ‘Games’ section, from which I quote:
“I remember playing DreamChess on Ubuntu, but the one is not available for Suse 11.4 KDE.”
I’ve taken a look around, gathered the stuff required and made a quick package of this game, thus pushing it forward to the games repository. Within a few minutes of the submission, the package was approved and it’s ready to be served to the masses.
We can’t leave transitioning users from Ubuntu unhappy can we ?! Once more thanks to Dimstar and Prusnak for the quick answer in getting this package into the games repository.
During the last week blogs, twitter, facebook and other means of communication for the users experienced a lot of traffic related to the Humble Indie Bundle. This bundle was nothing more than a package composed of 6 DRM-Free games developed by 6 Independent game developers that could be obtained at a price set by the user. This bundle included the games World of Goo, Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru HD, Penumbra Overture and Samorost 2. The bundle was available for one week and the earnings went to the developers, The Child’s Play Charity and Electronic Frontier Foundation depending on the will of the buyer. At the end of the week the bundle reached 1’000.000 US$ of income, reason for which Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru HD and Penumbra Overture are releasing their code under FLOSS licenses. As you can see here was already released under GPL2, and the other games source code is being prepared to be released within this week.
In addition to this, it was officially announced that Steam will be available for Linux at the end of this summer, which means lots of games and lots of fun is coming to gnu/linux and the breach in gaming between gnu/linux and other OSs is getting smaller.
Here some trailers of the games that will be released as FLOSS from the Humble Indie Bundle
Linux gamers it is time to have even more fun
