        Remember what I've been saying for a while. They don't know this space- and in many cases, they don't always have the time unless they're a user of Linux. If they're a user, they tend to try to make time.

        In this case, they're from Criterion UK and similar development studios (The guy was a dev lead on things like Burnout 3...)- they would mostly only fully grok the console space.

        It looks like a cool game. I know I'm interested in the thing. I've already popped over to their forums and let 'em know that there might actually be something of a market for them with our crowd.

          I assume you pointed them to the figures 2dboy and Wolfire have published?

            Not yet... Got to start the conversation first. I've already alluded to those two and Elecorn, though. Already told Wolfire that if they don't have the Linux port lined up with Ryan or internally on Overgrowth to contact me. I'll be pinging them on it shortly if I don't hear from them.

            • The numbers for 2dboy and wolfire are posted on their websites so you may as well stick them up in your post as it proves the point that there is a demand for it (5-10% for linux or 35%-50%! for both is nothing to be sniffed at!).

              As a completely unrelated topic are you offering to do mac ports to the developers you approach as well as linux or just linux? Doing both might make for an easier sale.

              Also have you talked to the guys behind Kivi's Underworld as it looks like they are actively looking to port their games and your name comes up with Ryan's and LGP but I doubt they'll have your contact details.

                Just Linux stuff for the most part right now- mainly because the studios I've talked to up to this point have a Mac person already lined up. The development effort's similar, but not identical, and I'd have to do the Hackintosh thing or fetch me one to do the work. I plan on gearing up a bit for that as that's part of how Ryan's been getting gigs.

                I've got to re-send my stuff to Data Realms (seems the paste orifice lost the dang things...) and I should be talking with them and one or two other studios here shortly. Since, apparently, people have been mentioning me, I'll do it much sooner than later.

                  Fair enough

                  I understand your frustration with the post office I've had nothing but problems with them lately. I assume it was the NDA/contract you were sending them... can't wait to see the final product.

                    • I'd like to see the wimgcomander series also(Have Prophecy still on the CD rack)

                      While looking There's one i cant believe I/we missed,

                      Sinstar unleased, THQ/Midway

                      It was extremely addictive!

                      Not sure if interplay was soaked up by EA but what about MDK/2 ?

                      Is SCI still going? what about the carmageddon series? Ok it's getting on a bit, but it was fun.

                      Pete

                      Edit: had a look on sci.co.uk and they do a mac version/demo!
