Hypothetical Linux Game company questionnaire
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 29, 2009
Update February 4th, 2011:
The survey is now closed. The updated data can be found here.
As for how the company itself is doing... well... I'll just call it a work-in-progress for the time being. My real life responsibilities haven't allowed me to take such a grand step just yet.
Update January 23rd, 2010:
Yesterday the survey reached it's first goal of 250 answers. As I promised earlier, the survey data has been made available for all interested to study. You may find it here. The survey is still on-going and answers received hereafter are no less important than those given before the first goal was reached. Thank you everyone!
I posted a thread some time ago in the Community-Cafe about starting a Linux game company.
I'm currently in the process of mapping the potential market and your input would be most valuable at this point.
Please take the time to answer my ten gaming related questions by using this questionnaire.
Thank you everyone and don't forget
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

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

Linux game console ready to ship

Linux: Game Development.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 9, 2011
I was wondering if I could develop games for linux to make a living. I am budding entreprenuer and would love to create open-source games to sell. Now if I am correct it is possible to sell your open-source software as long as you provide source code.
I am a Python programmer and will certainly be using Blender to create a couple of games. I am thinking of creating a different game for each genre, and they are as follows:
- A first person shooter (Like Combat Arms for windows.)
- A racing game.
- A Role Playing Game.
- A Real Time Strategy.
- And finally a Indie Game.
I plan to have all these games multi-player, I know this will be difficult to code with python but I think I'm up for a challenge!
Anyways the reason I have posted this is to get your opinion on what I'm doing! So please leave suggestions and if anyone would like to help leave a PM.
