LGP's Jets 'n' Guns Gone Gold

Towards the middle of last month X3: Reunion had finally gone gold after being in the porting process by Linux Game Publishing for almost two years. This game is finally shipping to customers by the end of this week. Additionally, Linux Game Publishing had hinted they had a "major announcement" to share, but it just turns out they have also gone gold with Jets 'n' Guns on Linux. LGP got its hands on Linux publishing rights for this unique game just in October.

Updated Prey Demo For Linux Released

More than a month ago, Ryan Gordon had released a Prey Linux demo for this first person shooter that was released for Windows back in 2006 and is developed around a heavily-modified version of the id Tech 4 engine. At that time he said the full Linux client for Prey would be out in a few days, but it still has yet to be released. However, in time for Thanksgiving, Ryan has now put out an updated Prey demo for Linux.

One Year Later There's No UT3 Client For Linux

It was one year ago to the day that Unreal Tournament 3 had shipped in North America. This title created by Epic Games was originally supposed to come with the Linux binaries on the game's DVD but that didn't happen and the UT3 Linux server arrived a month late. It's now one year down the road and there still is no UT3 Linux client binary or any sign of when one may come. It was last August when Epic's Mark Rein confirmed Unreal Tournament 3 on Linux.

LGP Porting Jets 'n' Guns To Linux

X3: Reunion that was announced in January of 2007 as coming to Linux is still being ported (since the last update there have been about another eight beta releases) and Bandits: Phoenix Rising is another game that's being worked on for Linux. Sacred: Gold is also another title in development by LGP and finally their fourth title under development has been Disciples 2: Dark Prophecy, but there hasn't been much progress made on that front in quite some time. While it seems their development resources are stretched, Linux Game Publishing has announced another project. LGP will be porting Jets 'n' Guns to Linux.

Unreal Tournament 3 Running On Linux

For those Linux gamers that have been waiting almost a year to play Unreal Tournament 3, it looks like that day is finally getting close. Earlier this week Jeff Morris from Epic Games had confirmed on our forums that the UT3 Linux release will include their in-game UnrealEd Editor program. For the first-time ever, Ryan "Icculus" Gordon (the one porting the Unreal Tournament 3 engine to Linux) has shown Unreal Tournament 3 running on Ubuntu Linux and Mac OS X.

UT3 Linux Release To Include Editor

It's been almost ten months since Unreal Tournament 3 was released and there is still no Linux client available. There is not even any time-frame either for when the Linux support will be released. Ryan Gordon has been working with the Unreal Engine 3 under Linux since late 2004 and the UT3 Linux server has been out (albeit a month late). The Linux client port should be ready to go, but it's likely being held up by Epic's middle-ware legal issues.

What Linux Games Are Most Important?

Since the end of last week we've been running a thread in the forums asking what Linux games are most important to you? So far we've received a nice response, but we're still looking for additional details as to whether you mostly do your Linux gaming with WINE or an id Software title or what. Drop by the thread and share your thoughts. Why are we doing this? It's to be disclosed at a later time.
