  • After Jack Keane, RuseSoft will briing Ankh 3 to Linux through Desura

    Point & Click adventure games from Deck 13 are being ported by RuneSoft to Linux on Desura.

    Jack Keane, an adventure game taking place in the colonial-era of the now defunct British empire, has already been ported to Desura :

    Jack Keane was already ported on Linux few years ago (available on retail stores).

    Ankh, Ankh 2 were also ported, but Ankh 3. Indeed, Ankh 3 was cancelled after poor sales record from Ankh 2 & Jack Keane (few hundreds units sold).

    Now, Linux seems to be more gamer-friendly, and Desura is becoming more attractive, as RuneSoft will port Anlh 3 to Linux :

    Eath 2140 will also be ported to Linux :
    https://bitbucket.org/runesoftdev/earth2140_public

    Ankh 3 & Earth 2140 are two new games to Linux. The impressive RuneSoft catalogue could also be ported to Linux :

    Linux Game Publishing should worry about the renewed RuneSoft interest on Linux...

    I want to inform you that CEO of LGP probably is spending more time on developing and publishing games as DarkArts Studios instead porting games to Linux as LGP:

    I really want to see games ported to Linux/Mac by Hyperion entertainment on Desura.

      I asked Hyperion, they are still alive. I would like to get a working "Sin" game, as the one ported does not work on latest distributions.

        I know they are alive, because they are selling AmigaOS, but they still didn't make a decision to sell their games for Linux/Mac on Desura.
        I think they should make updates for Mac version of Shogo, because it probably doesn't work on new versions of Mac OS X.

              Ankh and Aankh 2 aren't available yet on Desura:

              http://www.rune-soft.com/shop_e/linu...inux_shop.html
              http://www.desura.com/company/runesoft

              They are still working on Ankh 3, Earth 2140 and Dream pinball 3d for Linux.

              "contacted RuneSoft and asked about Linux support with DreamPinball 3D ?

              Thomas Steiding: We will monitor the sales of our current and upcoming releases on Desura/Ubuntu. But bringing DP3D to Linux is also a possibility for next year!"

                Hi

                I want to inform you that Runesoft is working on new patches for the Linux version of Knights and Merchants. I think that they plan to publish this game on Desura:

                "Updates
                Desura users will get the updates via the Desura client and as an updated standalone installer."

                https://bitbucket.org/runesoftdev/kn...blic/wiki/Home

                Box version of this games was published by LGP and perhaps in the future Runesoft will publish Software Tycoon for Linux on Desura.

                I'm really happy that Runesoft is planning to port more games to Linux. On the other hand I have to admit that LGP gradually is abandoning by many different companies what is a really sad news.

                  Runesoft published information on their website that Ankh: Heart of Osiris is coming to Linux and Mac:

                  http://www.rune-soft.com

                  They probably want to publish a digital version of this game on Desura, and they are working on the new installer and updates for the box version of Ankh: Heart of Osiris.

                    Ankh 2 was already released.

                    The latest port was Earth 2140 :
                    http://www.desura.com/games/earth-2140-gold-edition

                    Next will be Pinball 3D. Ankh and Kinght & Merchants will be ported to Desura in the coming months

                            That is the true.
                            However, these games were published 6-7 years ago, and updates are not available for them yet.

                              I noticed that one of the programmers from Runesoft answered on my question, and that means Linux users can expect that Jack Keane 2 will be published for Linux:

                              http://www.desura.com/games/jack-keane#commentreply

                              Me: "Do you plan to port Jack Keane 2 to Linux/Mac OS X?"

                              Here is the trailer of this game:
