  • Svartalf,

    Harvest - Massive Encounter (http://www.oxeyegames.com/harvest/) is made by a small Swedish team. Small == friendly here, as observed on their forums. It's a 2D defense with excellent graphics and concepts.

    SunAge (http://www.vertex4.com/sunage/) is some Austrian indie 2D strategy in the style of Starcraft. Has excellent graphics. Maybe indie == friendly, I don't know.

    Motorm4x (http://www.easyco-games.com/games.html scroll down) is a Czech indie extreme truck driving game that looks very good. Released a year ago. I have a hint that the team is friendly because upon release I sent them a mail asking about availability. They have instantly replied, detailing a whole story about how they either got screwed over or couldn't find a good distribution worldwide.

          n their forums they said, the Linux option is closed. I don't know what they mean though and it's a very interesting game.

            Great news, it seems they are receptive. I launched the proposition to collaborate with LGP, in an email to Vertex4. Roman, the CEO, answered saying he's interested and he asks more details. Svartalf, will you take over? I'll send the details in a PM.

            • I suppose that all LA's (Lucas Arts) games are not portable at all, right? I was thinking about "Indiana Jones and the emperor's tomb".

              Cheers

                Most of the reviews I read for this game say it's mediocre.

                • It seems SunAge was rushed to being published, maybe because of the publisher? But since launch, they did release many patches for it.

                  Anyway here's how it looks:

                  And a fair review:

                    Yeah the graphics are neat.
                    The multiplayer mode is ready?

                          That game looks well thought out, fun and beautiful. It seems to have a believable world which is important to me.

                          My one problem with their website is that the trailer is hosted on a 3rd party site and every download link 404's and flash is not an option for me.

                          I would preorder, payment upfront, a Linux version of this one. That is how cool that game looks and how much I desire it on my Foresight desktop.

                              Me too!

                              Roman, the CEO of Vertex4, answered again. He'll wait for Svartalf to get in contact and he politely said my contact-establishing effort is appreciated. That made me feel warm and I just started liking this company

                              Let's see what Svartalf thinks.

                                doesnt it feel good to do something good? If we all pitched in a few dollars to help facilitate the development of games on our platform to begin with. We would not be in this predicament.
