    Phoronix: Prey Linux Retail Client Released

    Back in October Ryan Gordon surprised the Linux community by releasing a Linux game demo of Prey two-years after the game began shipping on Windows. He was contracted to port the Prey server to Linux but this was the first time we were seeing any client...

      a benchmark between the wine emulation (which runs quite well) and this native client would be quite interesting!

        Maybe I'll make this my Christmas present instead of SCII.

            This is very nice, Prey is a great game.

            But as a heads up, the Steam CD-key does not work with the Linux version. (atleast for me).. . So even if you can use the data files from the Steam install, you still need a boxed version for the key.

              I don't think the ones in the box are different, since you can buy a boxed version and enter your cd key in Steam to gain the copy digitally.

                  Here I was thinking that this was a new game when I read the news, but as it turns out this game was released WAY back in 2006 !!! So its taken 2 years for a ID Tech 4 (which is based on OpenGL) game to be ported to Linux !!

                  On another matter I see no obvious slowdowns when playing this game with Compiz enabled but sometimes the mouse gets all funny and I can't aim at anything.

                    No, it's been Linux compatible virtually the entire time. Doom 3 has been on Linux for a few years now.
