MMT is Steam-Punk MMORPG demo that is under development by RunServer - authors of middleware for massive MMO servers. Two years ago our company created MMORPG game prototype called MMT in medieval fantasy setting. Demo used bleeding-edge Unigine 3D engine and RunServer middleware. It was presented on Moscow GDC 2009 (KRI) and then suspended. While the project were rather proof of concept than real game, it had a lot of functionality including rich gameplay, combat, magic system, leveling, classes, items, loot, etc. Now in year 2011 MMT is being reborn on Linux and Mac OS X. We have set out to develop a full-featured MMORPG in a steampunk-fantasy setting with traditional third-view camera and ASWD control. Game engine was updated to recent version with a lot of improvements and visal effects and now we run on OpenGL.
A couple of weeks ago we announced Project Bossanova, a project seeking developers who want to create a linux exclusive game in return for sponsorship. Well the results are in.

With the aim of setting the standard in gameplay, graphics, compatibility, community integration and more, Project Bossanova seeks to demonstrate Linux should be treated as a serious gaming platform alongside the PC and Mac.
To do this a competition was launched to find out which game people want made for Linux, then a search began to find a game which fits the description. After a few weeks of voting, the results are in and the flagship game for Linux has been choosen: MMT by RunServer. It was a razor-thin margin, and we thank all the other entrants for their participation and wish them the best of luck.
This is only step one, to find out more about the game, Project Bossanova and be notified of updates, please head to the official site. We shall be supporting and covering this project as it progresses, to show our pledge of bringing Desura Digital Distribution to Linux.
