Question about a Linux Game Programming Book
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 7, 2013
I found a book about programming games on Linux and was wondering if anyone knows anything about it?
I want to know if buying it is worth while (it's extremely cheap so it wouldn't be a huge risk or anything, I'm just cheap ).
I really want to start making games for Linux, but all the tutorials I find are either:
A) Windows based
B) Extremely Outdated
C) Poorly Written
D) Too Complex, using terms I don't understand.
So, what do you guys think of this book? Is it worth buying? Has anyone here bought it and can give me an idea of how useful it is?
Thanks for any and all responses :3

A very old thread was brought back from the dead ("thread necromancy" as the poster phrased it) in the Community Chat section, but in order to attract attention from the group that would be most effected, I decided to post this with a link to it: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=65383&page=4
Post #32 (the second one on that page) is where the new discussion starts, and I just wanted to bring this to the attention of the people here in the gaming forums. For feedback, comments, suggestions, etc., I suggest that they be left in the linked thread.
P.S. I am creating this same thread in both the Ubuntu and Kubuntu Gaming sections for people who may only visit one or the other. Mods, please don't look at this as cross-posting as it's not a question that I want answered and I'm asking people to post in the linked thread as to not create multiple discussions, but this is also a great example of why a single gaming section might be a good idea.

Link. Considering how much less market share Linux has compared to Mac OS, Linux sure is keeping up!

GamaSutra just posted an interview with Ryan Gordon. It's broad in scope.
I think that's enough introduction. Here's the link.

LXer: The Proposals For Unigine's Linux Game Competition
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 4, 2010
Published at LXer:
As we shared last week, Unigine Corp launched a Linux game development competition where any independent game teams/studios could submit a written proposal to them for a new Linux game and then later this month they will pick one submission and grant them a free license of their expensive, very advanced, multi-platform engine. There's still another week left to this competition, but we have learned some details from Unigine Corp about the submissions thus far.
Linux Game Development

I enjoy developing games, and would enjoy it more if more people would take interest in developing games for Linux. Yeah sure, I know there are quite a few games for Linux, but most of them are Quake3 Arena clones... made with the Quake3 Arena engine. I few months back I launched a community site for Linux game devs and the response was horrible, in the matter of +/- 5 months time the site managed to get 10 registered members. And I did my bit to "market" it.
The point is - It doesn't look like people are taking any interest in this at all. I'm not a pro in Linux game development, but not even the experienced folks took a look at it to help add more content (is this some kind of dark art???). Currently I'm seriously considering to shut the site down, which I tried to get up and running to benefit the Linux community.
Sorry for the rant, but Linux needs more high quality games... The kind that'll get more people to switch over to Linux, and for many others like myself - stop d

The Linux Game Tome is back
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 31, 2013
The Linux Game Tome (http://happypenguin.org/) is back online after silently going down some months ago.
As it turns out the owner of the server didn't notice that it was down. After a member of the Phoronix forum made him aware of the situation the site is online again.
