    Phoronix: Good News For Linux Gamers This Thanksgiving

    I anticipated this being a slow Linux news day here in the United States with Thanksgiving being today and most US employees being on holiday this half of the week, but there ended up being an interesting email in my inbox this morning and it presents a new reason for Linux gamers to be thankful today: our favorite game company is soon to announce something to further embrace and support Linux game development...

    +1! Don't work yourself to death, Michael!

    If you're dead then we have absolutely zero articles It should keep you sharp, too.

    Postal 3 for linux was killed a long time ago. They even deleted all references to it off their forums while they were up.

    I'm a bit biased as I'm learning OGL 4(.1), but I think if Michael meant his words we should see some improvements in Linux game development. Tools, deployment or distribution. It should not be just announcing one new title even if native one.

    As for me free of charge Unigine for non-profit enterprises would do! As it would be probable first commercial grade SDK that support OGL 3/4 on Linux.

    On the other side, annoucment of some (very) big company that it will release native linux and windows (and mac) versions simultaneously, and used linux during development time also would do. As from my point those to 'events' would do the most good for Linux.

    If they port it, and it's not too expensive, I'll buy it!
    Wow, Trine and Trine 2 looks like great fun and are both absolutely gorgeous. I am really looking forward to those.

    I just want to thank Unigine for actively trying to get Linux into the spotlights as a great gaming platform. We need more companies like this who create an amazing product and are Linux- and company-friendly. They really deserve our support.
