"Game developers, both those working with established projects and independent hobbyists, say they can't wait to start developing for the Indrema Entertainment System, a game box/Internet device running on Linux. Despite some questions developers have about the yet-to-be released Indrema Entertainment System, most are willing to give the company the benefit of the doubt for now."

"I became interested in Indrema because it seems more developer-friendly than anything else. Who else posts their [development kit] on their Web site?" says Steve Mosher, with a development team centered in Prince Edward Island, Canada. "The fact that it's Linux-based is a real help, since I'm very familiar with writing code for Linux systems."

"Early this week, Indrema announced the Indrema Developer Network (IDN), a Web site where anyone who wants to create Indrema-compatible games can get the tools to bring their visions to life. Indrema CEO John Gildred and Brian Behlendorf, founder of Open Source project hosting site, touted the IDN as a "new age" of democratic gaming development, instead of the current model of proven gaming companies pitching titles to the big console manufacturers."
