    Phoronix: The Status Of Unigine's Linux-Compatible Game

    Earlier this year we shared that Unigine was working on a new game that was being developed internally and would run on Linux with their continually improving game engine that already sets an OpenGL precedent on Linux. Following that we did a Linux interview with the Unigine developers to talk about their proprietary engine, gaming on Linux, etc...

    Well, I wouldn't say, that this is not a god year for Linux games. I sh** on UT3 for Linux and wouldn't buy it anymore (not for 5). ID will come back (I belive ).

    But we have something realy god in the pipeline. It's Heroes of Newerth. I love this game and I think it's one of the best/will be one of the bes Linux games ever.

      World of Goo alone was a big win for linux gaming this year, but I guess it doesn't have a benchmarking mode

        Linux Gaming

        Actually, emerging cloud services for gaming (GaiKai, OnLive, both in Beta) might bring *lots* of great games to Linux as soon as next spring. Maybe we are just like in 2001, thinking if e-mail client as good as Outlook will be available on Linux too while something way better (gmail) was on the way.

          Yes, World of Goo was a very good game. But it was a little bit short, for my taste.

                Exciting new developments in the area of longevity drugs means it's not too late for UT3 Linux!

                    Quake Live & Heroes Of Newerth. A great year for me, even though I know they aren't major high-end graphic titles.

                        Nothing's definitive yet, but Rage on Linux seems unlikely:

                          I've got Heroes of Newerth, no need for UT3.

                            The only thing, I can tell about UT3 for Linux is: "Holy Shit!"

                              I see, I see... but as far as I understand every future game from ID, not just Rage, is very unlikely to have a Linux port. Well I'm not surprised at all. I'm sure only Indie games will see a port to Linux from now on and not a single title from a big company and ofcourse not a AAA title. The only way Linux to get native ports is by market share improvement to an amount of 10%. But unlike Apple, no Linux company is able to make such a tremendous marketing. Thus, the only way for this to become a reality is Linux to be teached in elementary schools and to become like that, something common for the youngs and the average desktop user and not just an exotic OS.
