    Phoronix: Unigine Announces The Three New Linux Games

    In continuation of yesterday's news (read it if you haven't), Unigine Corp has expected announced the three winners of its Linux game development competition. The three winning teams that will now be granted Unigine Engine licenses to develop their titles include Kot-In-Action, Gamepulp, and MED-Art...

      Holy shit! Painkiller Ressurection and Steel Storm! Now those games are FUN.

      Now if I count a new C&C + Tower Defence RTS = Oilrush, then Linux will probably get one of the best (read = fun) games made in the last... say... 10 years! (not counting GoldenEye:Source and Duke Nukem Forever scheduled to be released very soon (completion now in hands of Gearbox)).

        Congratulations to the winners! Steel Storm is really fun so I'm eager to see what Kot-In-Action will come up with and the puzzle/platform adventure game that Gamepulp is planning sounds like exactly the type of game I'd like to see. I never played Painkiller: Resurrection so I can't comment on that but hopefully MED-ART's game winds up kicking ass whether it's a FPS or not.

            I'd really like to see a customizable-mech combat game along the lines of the Armored Core series.

                I think I was assuming they were looking for indie studios only.... Giving licenses to established studios is somewhat disappointing.

                  This a the most best fucking news from a long time.
                  I mean, those guys at unigine deals a stuff that no-one has ever made that much before.
                  I'm still confident that the linux community, is, in gaming, much more powerfull than it's supposed to be.
                  I'm confident too that Linux title will help other editors to systematically release Linux clients, as they will see that the linux market can't be ignored completely.

                    Really really really REALLY good news for long time. I am very happy to see three linux games emerging. But at the same time i am little bit sad that there weren't consept art or more in depth description about the games. All the games are probably must buy for me just because of the principle.

                      In Unigine we also hope that the winner teams will ship their games; it's a really hard road even with secured technology platform.

                        Can't say I'm too excited about any of the winners.

                          Why? What's your problem this time? We hardly even know anything about these games.

                            I really hope to see a final game soon. Your own game seems to be a bit problematic too however. A benchmark is ok, you can even walk around in it, but i need some action Did you manage to run your engine on osx yet or does it not allow the use of opengl 4 there?

                              Going by the previous work of the chosen ones I have a feeling that these will be equivalent to the bargain bin titles found at the local dept store checkouts. Wasn't impressed with any of the teams previous works. Painkiller was unimpressive and boring (FPS, zzzzzzzzzz), ditto for Steel Storm (yawn, rehash of the 1998'ish game called Rage),and another unimpressive puzzle game like Penumbra series.

                              Been there, done that, bought the $5 t-shirt to wax my car.
