    Phoronix: Oceania: A New MMORPG Powered By Unigine

    Oceania is a new Kickstarter-backed MMORPG game being developed atop the visually impressive Unigine Engine. Native Linux support for this massively multiplayer online role playing game is being planned...

    Sounds good, I'll probably give them some for their Linux efforts.

    WoW is just a pile of sh!t lately (Panda.................), but still, I hope that they will lose against Blizzard.

    Look at date when EQ was released (And it was a pretty bad game anyway IMHO) and when this will be released. If the vampires will be good it would be surprise of the year...

    As a question to Mike Frett, what is it about Linux that makes you want people to use it? For many it is because of the ideals of free software that we want it to succeed, while for others it is because they prefer the Linux way of doing things. You are saying we should be making Linux more like Windows, but why would it be needed then? We have a fully functional Windows like system already, it is called Windows, and since you do not particularly care about free software I am left confused as to why you wish to promote the system in the first place. What about it do you draw value from?

    Made for teens? Wow was Everquest made for kids for crying out loud.

    Depends on your outlook. The vast majority of Kickstarter games that I have seen use Unity, just because it has good cross-platform support, and that's important for independent developers.
    You're confusing Unity for Unigine. They are not the same thing.

    Skype is also bad since it proliferates closed walled IM networks instead of federated XMPP. It's not just because it's proprietary.
