This woud be perfect for the Humble Indie Bundle 3. Can you work out a Linux version so I can give you my money? Please?

Yes please. I'll buy it day one if you bring this to Linux (and Desura is working on a Linux client already). :)

If I owned a game development studio I would hire you on the spot.

I agree...Breath is using UDK and the screenshot they provide is straight from Unreal Tournament 3. I'm personally hoping for Avaneya (even though I waited too long to vote) since they're going to be Linux-only anyway.

Ah, got it. My bad. :) Yeah, I'm a C++ guy myself...Java gave me too many problems back when I first started out.

jMonkey uses Java, so theoretically a single binary would run without any changes. I'm just asking if that's how it works since I don't know much about Java.

Are jMonkeyEngine games cross-platform executables, or are they simply easy to compile/package for any platform?

I agree. When I first heard about this a small part of me said "Yeah, we should stick it to Windows users because of all of the Windows-exclusive games that come out"...but then I realized that it's not the fault of the gamers.

Absolutely fantastic. I just finished it...can't wait for the second installment.

One thing I noticed though...in the last room after you get the orange portal launcher again, if you fall down below the floor there's no way back up. I had to turn on cheats and noclip back.

Inverted controls make sense for an aircraft/spacecraft game. That's how they work in real life.

I voted for FPS because while Linux may have an abundance of them, most of them are showing their age. Plus, we're getting Dilogus pretty soon.

RPGs are indeed awesome. :D

Tech|Rogue @ Oilrush available for pre-ordering and some statistics

I preordered this game within an hour of the store page coming online. :D The price was a little disappointing though...I was fully prepared to pay $40-60.

Tech|Rogue @ 80 % for a Linux client

I had a look at the DLLs and It's my guess that the UI is in Webkit. It never occurred to me that the client interface would be a problem.

Specifying game paths is probably not going to be a problem for mods...remember that we users of Linux are our own tech support. ;) For example, installing the Dark Mod for Doom3 on Linux, I simply had to run the executable with the mod's folder as an argument, like so:

/opt/Doom3/Doom3 /opt/TDM

and I was good to go. I think having easy access to command line switches (like Steam used to have) is a must.

Installing/Patching will almost definitely be the hardest, but still definitely doable...Developers who know what they're doing usually bundle libraries in with the game, sometimes even including entire managed code runtimes. Nearly every Linux game I've bought has worked without having to install additional libs, which is nice. I assume the patching works similarly to Dropbox etc, comparing a checksum of the downloaded archive to the most recent update on the server.

I really hope they don't bother with packages and such...I like all my games tucked away in /opt/{Game name}, or hopefully /opt/Desura. :) Heck, I'd be perfectly content in having to download a shortcut app for a game and set the paths and commands myself.

I use Windows occasionally (actually posting this from Desura), but Linux is my preferred OS. I end up using it about 80-90% of the time. The only reason I boot Windows any more is to play games I bought that don't work on Linux, but I've been buying only Linux-naitive games for the last 6 months or so.

If Desura comes to Linux I'll buy every game that gets released. :)
