Have you purchased a Linux game lately?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 3, 2013
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
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

as the time of my first linux OS approaches i find myself looking at games. now i know most of my windows games won't work but i'm talking about real linux games. i've found one which i really like the look of. the only problem is that when i go to the download page i see that there are different versions to download for different versions of linux. this really confuses me - there's no mention of ubuntu there either and i'm not sure which ones are close to ubuntu and that would work, the games download page is http://www.wormux.org/en/download.php please can someone point me to the right version to get for ubuntu (i'm downloading the latest versionof ubuntu)

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..

Are you planning in buying a commercial game in the near future?
The poll above contains two questions, so it's possible to select multiply. The 1-5 options are how many linux commercial game you have. Option 6-7 is Do you plan to buy a commercial Linux game in the near future.

Linux Game Console Post
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 27, 2008
As the title suggests this is a post about a linux gaming console.
as for the overall focus it will be to make it run on a specifically designed PC then for an actual game console to be built with that hardware.
As you know all prior attempts to create one have failed.
My idea was to create a version of ubuntu that runs on specific hardware and is configured to use it efficiently.
also my idea was to change the ubuntu desktop to an interface smiler to a psp os.
I also know very little about programing so that makes it difficult.
Currently my idea for hardware is as follows
AMD Phenom X4
Nvidia Gforce 9600
total ram at 4 to 8 GB
SSD (solid state disk drive) For faster data transfer rates
Custom controller (initial ideas are something like a flip phone horizontal with touch screens on each side with configurable buttons that varies according to the game.
some sort of removable media for user profiles, music,etc
all liquid cooled with oil.

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
