Commercial Linux gaming revisited: Cold War demo, and other rants.

theSamo's picture

Cold War follows the story of a freelance journalist who finds himself in the midst of an international conspiracy that aims to control the U.S.S.R. Twelve hours after arriving in Moscow for a routine story, he has been stripped of all possessions, beaten unconscious and thrown into the KGBs political prison. Using only recovered weapons and improvised gadgets, he must now evade or overcome elite Soviet forces and defeat the conspiracy before he is sent to a Siberian prison camp or killed.

Sine we're on the topic of Loki, icculus.org has just made the Prey linux dedicated server, which isn't exactly of much relevance to the linux gamer. Prey uses the openGL cross-platform Doom3 engine, but 3Drealms propably decided that linux gamers are too few to deserve a release. Thanks 3DRealms. Hope you never get to release Duke Nukem Forever.

Now dear linux gamers, You have only about one major commercial game hitting the market this year, ET: Quake Wars. Maybe Savage2 but that's kinda indie.

I'll try to keep following on smaller (indie) production houses for more news later.
