We were very impressed last year when first watching the Unigine Tropics demo
that was integrated in the Phoronix Test Suite
as its OpenGL graphics were stunning and the game engine behind it, Unigine, is fully compatible with Linux. While not yet released, the latest work going into this powerful game engine bring multiplayer and physics support
along with a horde of other features. Screenshots recently published
show that this engine has become even more incredibly powerful and beautiful. This latest Unigine engine update will be out later this year.
While you will have to wait before getting your hands on the technology demo of this 2009 engine update, if you have any questions for Unigine, ask away in the forums. Unigine Corp has agreed to answer some of our reader questions regarding their work in a Phoronix Q&A. If you have any questions about the Unigine engine on Linux, reasonings for their support of Linux, about game engine technologies (say OpenCL and ray-tracing), or Unigine in general, it's all fair game. Just ask the question by clicking on the "Comments & Discussion" link below and ask away.
After receiving enough questions, Unigine representatives will answer the questions and you can find the answers on Phoronix. More on Unigine can be found on their company web-site
