If it is todo with the Unigine the only ones interested would be those wanting todo 3D games yes?
Well we have had the UT2k4 engine that is cross platform, how many games come out of that (commercial)
Q3 engine (its even gpl'ed) and how many games have come out of that (commercial)
Doom3 engine how many?
Its not like there isn't already 3D engines that are cross platform or engines that are free, how has any of these spured linux game development and why would something from unigine change that
if people wanted to code for linux they would have by now, every now and again some indi does some game but there hasn't been any significant increase in games for linux let alone top quality sellers (most recent is HoN and what else?)
How is this going to be any different? Sure some deal for linux dev is great! it may spur it on BUT nothing says it isn't so I fail to see how this is great news for gamers (if it really is a licensing for indi)
