    Default Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition Is Coming To Linux

    Phoronix: Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition Is Coming To Linux

    Back in August I wrote that a Linux port of the Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition game was being considered. There's now word that a native Linux port of this game is indeed coming...

    Hopefully by the time it comes to Linux they will have worked all the bugs out (and not introduced new ones). The game was so busted up it was straight up unplayable for a significant chunk of people when it first came out. Mostly playable now, but still with a lot of bugs.

    I got the iPad version the day it came out and it is a really nice refinement on the original Baldur's Gate, though the touch controls are some what imprecise. The game is not as unstable as people claim, in fact I have yet to see a crash or a significant bug. Overhaul did good work and they seem dedicated to continuing that with frequent updates. That being said it is not an HD remake, the graphics are very much the same as BG always had and today that looks grainy especially when zoomed in, it is not all it can be but it is still one hell of a game.

    I look forward to the OS X version coming out, and of course Linux once they have that release ready. I also hear that the Android release is progressing well. Cross platform gaming is really having a great year.

    It is also nice to see that they are having good success with the release so far, on the iPad the game has been in the top five on most regional app stores since release which for a 9.99$ game is really great to see. It of course, self servingly, also means that there is a greater chance that Overhaul will get to make a Baldur's Gate 3 (they are apparently already working on BG II: EE), as well as remakes of the other Infinite Engine games (oh please let there be a Planescape: Torment: EE in my future, it would top off the recent announcement of a spiritual sequel coming out).

    So...Linux gets it after Windows, OSX, iOS, and Android...

    See the problem here?
