    Eufloria was done in C#.
    IIRC, their Linux builds were using mono in wine or something. I think the only thing they distributed was an exe file, so it used wine.

    • Edit: Apparently they did have native mono builds. Maybe it was later in the Dyson period that they required wine...

        It will shortly be updated, and yes...we're discussing specifics as we can meet up with each other online on that one. Unless something happens, it should be on the in-progress list.

        Now, if only Steven would get back with me on a thumbs-up/down on his stuff over there at Soldak...

        • So it's possbile even Myth1 and Myth3 to knock the doors of Linux?

          • Telltale Games has decided to port Sam & Max (the episodes, not the original) to the Mac, and are taking votes on which of their other series to bring to the Mac. This might be a good time to ask them about porting to Linux.

              Partly me getting closure on some of my ongoing projects. Splash Damage and ZeniMax would want almost my undivided attention if I were to get signed on- much like TTimo initially was before becoming an employee of iD's full-time. I'll start seeing what might be there in the way of interest- I suppose I could step up to the AAA space slightly earlier than I had planned (another year to three of indie stuff showing that there IS a market, that sort of thing...).

                Yes. The guys doing the work happen to have rights access to all three of them. Right now they've got 2 largely working on MacOS and Windows with a higher def re-spin to it. Same gameplay, etc.

                  That's terrific!
                  And are you going officially to make the Linux ports or you are in the discussions stage?

                    So far, the story's that I'm doing them. I've still got some discussions on things to be had that aren't of the nature to block the deal, so I didn't change it's status yet because work hasn't started yet (and even if I get a deal, it can always change on me- unlikely, but you know what I'm getting at...).

                    • Civilization V

                      It might be a little overambitious, but I'll request it anyway:

                      Civilization V

                      • FarCry
                        and
                        FarCry 2

                        As for FarCry (1) it's from crytek and HAS a opengl mode! Porting that game to native linux should be fairly easy.

                            Civilization 5 would be really great Last week i have read an article on golem http://www.golem.de/1002/73235.html with a note about a possible linux version. Though there is no official statement about it, maybe there is a small chance to get a native linux version of civilization 10 years after lokis "call to power'.

                            • I obviously didn't read all posts in this thread and part 1 ^_^
                              But from that i can conclude that FarCry 1 won't be on the list?

                              • most likely not.
