Last week Phoronix exclusively reported
that CodeWeavers would be introducing their CrossOver Games this coming Tuesday. Well, they have done so this morning. CodeWeavers, the company known for their WINE patronage and WINE-based CrossOver Office product designed to run Windows Office applications on Linux, has kicked their foot in the door into the Linux gaming
sector. CrossOver Games uses WINE and is very similar to CrossOver Office in fact, but the difference between their two products is that CrossOver Games will be updated much more frequently and is designed just for Windows gaming software.
CodeWeavers is also today announcing CrossOver Games for Mac OS X. CrossOver Games for Linux and Mac is available for $39.95 (USD) each and it includes twelve months of free updates. The press release can be read here
