Linux Indie Game Development
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 17, 2011
Hey guys I'm Cavil and I'd like to ask you guys some questions.
I'm a student studying Computer Science/Programming at college. This is my second year. After graduating I want to start my own independent video game development company.
I've been working several menial jobs like cashier at a store through college and it has made me decide that I don't like working with the general public, nor do I want to work for some big IT or game publishing/development corporation as I heard those companies work recent graduates super hard (crazily long hours) to get all their stuff done. I really do not want to do anything other than contract work for a company as a freelancer or start my own business because I am fed up with working for and/or dealing with big corporations. Instead I'd rather do something creative and put my computer science degree to work.
The thing is, I like Linux and the Free/Open Source Ideas, however, I want to know:

Linux Golf Game?

Does anybody know if there are any good Linux golf games out there, and if so, where I can find them? Playing Tiger Woods PGA Tour is about the only thing on Windows that I miss.
Is there a Linux video game store?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 28, 2010
I'm just looking for a website that ether just sells video games for Linux or a store that has a section of just Linux games. Does anything like that exist? I haven't found anything using google but I would really surprised if a site like that doesn't exist.
I know this must have been asked before but when I search for it I find lots and lots of post that have nothing to do with what I'm asking.
In the Dark: Linux indie game on last 19 hours of Kickstarter needs help
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 25, 2011
It's a cute game with nice art style and good ideas behind it. The creators are supporting Linux, but they need more pledges if the Kickstart is to succeed and the game is to be made.
It would be a huge thing if we could help them achieve this, for Linux, Ubuntu and gamers as a whole. And the game looks good too!

Suggestions for a simple Linux music game for kids?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 31, 2011
My daughter is 3 1/2 and recently had a ball playing Giggles Music at the library. I am wondering if there is a Linux clone of it, or if there's any other game that lets you type keys to play musical instrument sounds.
It would need to be something with a very simple interface. A lot of games these days that are supposedly for young children are very difficult to learn, often because the interface is completely nonstandard and it's hard to discover things or even figure out what the game is about. (Half the games on the library computers, I can't even figure out how to exit, and I've been using computers since *I* was 3.)
We are looking for: type a key, instrument makes noise, joy ensues.
A couple of menus in the beginning (like to choose the instrument) would be fine.
I've tried the various MIDI piano programs but so far they all require a lot of extra setup with jack and/or timidity.
Giggles Music plays an .mp3 of music behind what the user is playing, and there are some fun anim

There's been a bit of talk about Game Engines, so I figure we should make a list of Open Source ones for easy reference (thanks juancarlospaco for suggested additions):

Modified id engine with advanced features, used in Steel Storm.
Advanced version of Quake 3 engine

Linux Software/Game programmers, I got a question! <3
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 12, 2013
Simple question, at least I think it is. Where did you learn to program on Linux, I'm seriously having trouble finding a reliable resource any books, websites or people you can reference me to? I want to learn the same way others did, that way I know for a fact the resource is reliable thanks for any and all help, this is seriously getting difficult for me and it shouldn't be as hard as I'm making it out to be just to find a way to learn ><
