    Phoronix: An RTS Game Running Internally On Linux

    Last month I wrote how 2013 would be "the year of Linux gaming", but it turns out already in the three weeks to this year there's already been some surprise Linux game announcements thanks to Valve's Linux support...

    Then I recommend you divert your attention to this racy title. I heard a baseless, unfounded rumor that this game may or may not being coming to Linux.

I wonder if Valve do stats on this sort of thing to measure demand for Linux games vs Windows owners just giving their already-owned games a crack on Linux.

    If this comes to Linux, oh boy. Seems like some developers do want my money!

    Thanks for those links Wolas. There are a lot of good games that run on Linux that are just plain hidden and not talked about. The Spring RTS engine is very nice and I recommend people install it and find some nice games to play. This looks pretty good but not really my thing. Linux needs a Jump Start from some company like EA to port over at least one good AAA title to get the ball rolling. Valve is gonna port over HL2, but seriously, that's old news. But HL3 available for Linux on 1st day would be spectacular and Blizzard releasing their internal WoW Linux port would be nice.

    I found another MMO I have yet to play called Forgotten Elements. I downloaded the Client but haven't had a chance to try it; It's looks similar to D2. Eternal Lands is a good one also and has a PPA available. By the way, GetDeb and PlayDeb have been discontinued if you haven't heard the news. Linux game database is a good place to find games.
    EA? On Linux? I'd just veto them as I have for Windows. The way they treat their staff and their games.

    Spring is also a great game set up with lots of options for playstyles and themes similar to this game post.

    And dont forget the ages-old but still definately playable Warzone 2100!
