What 2D Linux Game Engines are out there?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 1, 2009
I ask this because I'm looking to make some old-school-style adventure games (Think of the mid-90's era for LucasArts, Interplay, and Sierra)
I would greatly appreciate if anyone could point me towards a portable, lightweight engine licensed under either the GPL or a BSD license. It would be nice if the engine could easily be tweaked to do the following:
-Creation of a custom in-game interface.
-Multiple cursors with each cursor serving a function. Right clicking would change the cursor. Most adventure games have Walk, See, Do, Talk, and Inventory Item.
-Control a single player character that is capable of audibly interacting with NPC's.
I'm sure that, given enough time, it would be possible to achieve this oneself. I am looking to write portable, free games. My goal is to improve my writing, drawing, animation, and programming skills. If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.
Majesty Gold Edition & Linux Game Publishing

I installed Majesty Gold Edition. Details of the game here . The game I got as Majesty-linux.iso & mounted it using mount loop command.
sudo mount -o loop /home/shirish/majesty-linux /home/shirish/cd
I had the CD but just wanted to use the image hence this way, it's also a tad faster for installs & stuff. Anyway.
Looking into the .iso saw tht there is a setup.sh file . So ran the setup.sh with
so it installed the game as well as LGP update files at :-

Forgot the name of a linux game
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 4, 2011
I used to play this game all the time, but I havent been able to think of the name for the life of me, so I can download it, and play it again. Hopefully one of you can help.
It was a 2d space game, the view was above the ship, there were these squares that were made up of pipes, with an orb on the end, that you had to shoot to destroy that branch of pipes, till you could get to the center, and destroy the center, while other things flew around/shot at you, and what not.
LXer: Linux Game Devs Upload Their Own Game on Pirate Bay, Strangely It Increases Sales

To counter the piracy problem, Tiny Build Games who released Linux game 'No Time To Explain' few days back, uploaded their own version of game on Pirate Bay. But there is a difference is this version and the original game that you can buy from the game website.
Have you purchased a Linux game lately?

I'm not sure what's involved in making a thread sticky, but if ever one needed to be stuck, this is it....
In my time surfing these forums I've seen countless new threads created either complaining or commenting on the sparseness of quality gaming options in Ubuntu. So perhaps its high-time we do something about it by encouraging people to put their money where their mouth is and buy a game, feed a programmer, and encourage others to start coding games for Linux.
So if you bought (meaning: paid cold hard cash for) a Linux game recently, be counted as one doing their part by posting here and letting us know which title you bought. If you are one of the kind-hearted souls that actually donates money to developers of "free" games, you are also encouraged to post and be counted among those doing your part too.
This is not a place to give a full review of a particular game and rake the developer over the coals for all the things they did wrong, but if you want to give props f
A compromise for linux game devs?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 1, 2010
for a couple of years now, linux has been ready for the desktop IMHO, except on one front: gaming. Now if you're running a classic game in wine, like master of orion 1/2 or the first starcraft, 99.99% of the time it'll run just fine. Your mileage may vary on newer games however. I just thought of this because it's insanely simple. Instead of rewriting the game from the ground up to work on linux, why not just optimize the windows version to work perfectly in wine? It might not be a perfect solution, but as I understand it, wine runs programs near or at native speed. Not to mention this would open up the ability to run it on the BSDs and any other OS capable of running wine (that is, almost every OS). Come to think of it, why not write games only for wine? It runs on a mac, so you have support there, and it it also runs on windows because, of course, wine is just a windows compatibility layer. Just bundle it with the game disc or something.
Have you bought a Linux game?

I was wondering how many people are actually supporting Linux gaming by buying the few games that have been developed commercially for Linux?
From what I've seen, it's mostly the smaller companies that are building Linux games. These two are just what I remember off the top of my head.
I'm thinking of buying a couple and hopefully it will show these guys that it's worth writing a Linux port of a game.
What do you think?
NB I know that there are loads of opensource games available and I play a few of them..
