    • Is Svartalf still busy? With so many new games suggested, there might be an opportunity for some new porters to make a name for themselves.

      What happened to Maks Verver, the guy who ported World of Goo, maybe he's in need of a new project?

        then pay dragonlord enough money so he can deploy his ideas Unless they have an exclusive tie with valve its unlikely they couldnt deal another platform. Killing floor would sell very well for linux.

        • There's a new indie studio called DoubleBear who's doing a zombie RPG.

          The game will be using the Age of Decadence engine, which in turn uses Torque.

          • tourqe 1.x, or another version. Only torque 1 supports linux and thats all community stuff.

            • Age of Decadence apparently uses version 1.3. They certainly don't seem opposed to the idea of a Linux port:

              • well i mean if they going to do it on their own by all means they should. It wouldnt be so much of a porting project as the game isnt done. In all honesty if they can do it I will buy it just because its on linux. And if I buy it 1000 others will because they all want to be like L33F3R because L33F3R is a cool, sexy beast.

                • Another possible game that isn't yet on the list: Payback. They used to have a "Linux version coming soon" on the website but they've since dropped that (and added i-phone and other ports).

                    It's a common secret afterall that phoronix is not a linux benchmarks site but a L33F3R fan club
