Welcome to the Linux Gamers group. This group is governed by people interested in using the Linux operating system for gaming or game creation. Since quite some time Linux is no more a niche product hostile to advanced and demanding games. With big companies like IDSoftware releasing their games also for Linux the interest and acceptance of this system has grown over time. In comparison to other systems Linux offers a couple of unique features as well as particularities and troubles when it gets down to gaming. It's the goal of this club to promote and support Linux gaming.


Let the games begin :D

Hello LinuxGamers,

Our tug of war strategy game Aeon Command is available on Linux. We were only able to test against Ubuntu 12.10, so interested in feedback of how it works with other distributions. We're using Unity3D 4.0 so we're hoping it'll work for most distros.

Link: Indiedb.com

Hope you guys enjoy!

Hey, Today I released a version of my game ReversE for Linux and is available to buy for the nominal sum of 69 Great British Pence! It is also completely DRM free! The game should work on all modern forms of Linux as stated by Unity Technologies group! Check it out over here Indiedb.com and let me know what you think!

It's time for an end-year damping...Is desura sleeping?

Yes, Desura is sleeping. It's now more or less Desurium but if they can't get it fixed to compile on a standard Linux machine I don't see it taking off anymore. The project sort of lost "direction" which is a problem.

This is so disheartening it hurts. I like Desura a lot, and I really, REALLY hope Desurium takes off somehow, but they're already having problems finding Windows coders. If Desura dies, we'll just have Steam and just on certain distros, which I am NOT okay with. :/

Take a look at the GitHub commit history. While a new release of the client may not yet be ready, Karol Herbst has been working on it steadily all along.

Github.com

...and, if you look at the network graph, there are even more commits still to be merged. (Which, therefore, don't show up in the main stream yet)

Github.com

As a programmer, I can reassure you that this kind of time-taking isn't out of the ordinary. (especially for something as complex as Desurium)

You've got a complex, in-house codebase that was never expected to be open source when it was originally written (which means a very fragile, in-house build system designed to be used only by the guy who wrote it and knows it intimately) and now you've got just one person trying to retrofit it to not only be robust enough for anyone to build it, but also to use system libraries rather than bundled ones AND to build on OSX too.

I'm not even sure "quadruple bypass surgery" is a strong enough analogy for how complex it is. The only thing MORE complex would be if they were trying to open-source code never intended to be installed on end-user machines.

...plus, the main hold-up for getting it packaged and into distros is the bundled libraries. It's already not THAT difficult to build from the GitHub repo and someone's even set up a PPA nightly builds. (Which I run without trouble)

Correction... Steam with integrated DRM and RootKit. No sane person should allow that crap on it's computer anyways... no matter if Linux or Windows.

Steam, Unity, probably Source... it's nice to see developers supporting our OS of choice. And who knows what the future will bring.
