    Default Free Giveaway Of Unigine's New Linux Game Continues

    Phoronix: Free Giveaway Of Unigine's New Linux Game Continues

    Last week we launched another Unigine OilRush giveaway contest whereby we're giving away copies of this forthcoming real-time strategy that has native support for Mac OS X / Windows / Linux with its impressive graphics renderer. This contest is in celebration of the seventh birthday of Phoronix later in the week. There's still time to participate if you want to win a free copy of this very interesting and shiny Linux game...

    It is... but to give away free copies of a game that runs on Linux (and other Os's) requires some money, and so why not spread publicity in a way of doing so? And if you have an issue with Twitter, take it elsewhere.

    I'd rather pay the full price if it seems interesting when it's ready.

    Getting a commercial Linux game for free just seems wrong.

    Still I hope these Twitter sessions bring some publicity to the game too.

    I haven't read anything that said Unigine threw any licenses in for Phoronix, so I guess that they are all paid for. However, correct me if I'm wrong, Michael.

    Right, at this point, Phoronix Media is paying for all of the copies... Unigine Corp hasn't offered up any free licenses yet.
