    Hm... strange. HL2 doesn't work here, or rather, it works but the HUD is messed up. The gun is like 1 unit in front so you see the chopped off arm model and triangles race across the screen depending on where you look at.
    Ya I played HL2 right through the end without any issues as well.

      Funny you mention redneck rampage, since it's probably Blizzard's new upcoming game.


      • "Achron is the world's first meta-time strategy game, a real-time strategy game where players and units can jump to and play at different times simultaneously and independently."

        Seems like they are open to porting to Linux:

        <quote from="FAQ">
        Q. On what platform will Achron be available?
        A. We are currently developing for the PC, but we did it with an eye toward porting to both OS X and Linux.

        Edit: fixed my XML


        • I'm not sure if these have been mentioned before, at least a quick search didn't find anything:

          Project Aftermath


          The Path

          machinarium (still in development)

          Fez (also in development)

            I bought Project Aftermath and had trouble running it in wine. I posted in their forums and Lee Hickey (their Programmer and Managing Director) contaced me and fixed the problem. He sent me a executable and included the fix in the next official patch.

            So being the friendly and cool guy he is, I doubt he would have anything against a linux port if it is something that can be done.

            • Shadow Physics - It's still in early development, but looks damn cool.


              • not sure if this has been mentioned but what about Buccaneer? Its made with torque so its either tge which itself has a linux source tree or tgea which is now compatible with mac.


                • How about some racing games:
                  Richard burns rally Publisher Sci(might be eidos nowadays)
                  Flat out Publisher Empire interactive(

                    • FlatOut 2 is already on the list of maybes. I think it was ported to OS X by RuneSoft?
