    As far as I *can* say (as is public knowledge, anyway) is that he's involved in UT3's Linux port (with all and the tools, yay! made with wxWidgets), Google's Google Earth, but that's about it. About UT3 he was very vocal in the UT2004 as soon as it was announced (back then still referred to as UT2007), more than that, I cannot say... Goes beyond of my channels of communication Is nice to see him "in the game"**, though!

    ** hehe I love that pun!

It's that much better to know that LGP is in some ways (of which I don't yet know the details) what is left of Loki. I've said it before, but if anyone here is interested in Linux gaming then do try to support LGP and any other company that provides Linux games. The next LGP game I'm looking forward to is X3, but I'd like to know more about what is in the near future.
      Mike Phillips was a former Loki developer. He's the stated Lead developer. Several other former Loki developers and the beta test/ISV contact crowd () for Loki are consultants for LGP, doing the porting work, infrastructure work, etc. for the porting efforts. We picked up support and sales for a couple of the titles Michael managed to get deals with (Most of the publishers and studios were uncertain of the ownership of the codebases, developed or in their final stages- by the time a goodly portion of the assessment was done, it wasn't worth their time in their eyes to re-license their IP to LGP. Shame.)

      I'm hoping Michael gets these deals in- I'm waiting to hear from him on one of them so I can start back up and get it done, hopefully in short term, because I thought it was cool when I tried out the Windows version and I was going to ask him if he would consider talking to the studio and their publisher about it when he mentioned it to me out of the blue.

      I will only indicate that it was a CRPG.

        Heh... I will say that I only WISH we had UT3 at this point- that hasn't been mentioned by Michael; that'd be about as much of a coup as the stuff he told me about.

          Now you truly have me intrigued!!!

          There's like 10 titles that come rushing to my head that could be that "CRPG"... I hope he does get the deal... And that'd be our Michael?? Phoronix's own Michael?

            When he is referring to Michael with gaming, he is referring to Mike Phillips who owns LGP/their lead dev.

              Actually, Michael, it'd be Michael Simms, who's the co-founder of LGP and is their CEO...

              [EDIT]
              You're probably right, we've got too many Mike/Michael named individuals going on here- so I guess
              I need to clarify things when I post...

                Oops! yeah. That's the last name. I hadn't talked with him since X2 beta time frame and I remembered his name was Michael and then accidentally stuck in the wrong info once I had read your above post.

                  We have too many Michaels around.

                  I do find the thread title "New Loki Games Repository Emerges" a bit funny. New Loki Games Repository? New Loki Games Repository?
