Linux.com: Come Join Us [Loki]

(Other stories by Jeff Mrochuk)

"In August of 1998 a company called Loki Entertainment Software was formed, amid much rejoicing. The company had a dream of mass produced Linux gaming. For the most part, the company has succeeded...."

"Unfortunately for Loki, despite the great quality, they have to fight a lot to get there products known. This has to change. The community needs to shine to improve Loki's sales. Gaming is something every Linux user should try. Unless you do, you'll never know if you'll like it! A lot of us spend hours hacking away at code on our Linux machines. Nothing relieves stress faster than a fast paced rocket battle. If everyone who read Slashdot bought a Loki game, we would be in a very different situation now. Basically we have to spread the wealth, turn on others to games so we can really build a foundation. PC gaming was a big time struggle to start as well, as back then, most eight-bit consoles out performed the newest PCs, and had a much bigger fan base. Now it's our turn."

"Four of Loki's programmers have left the company, within the last two weeks. Where are they going? To bigger and better things, and I wish the best of luck to them all. I knew a few of them and I know they will do well. Yes, this leaves Loki short handed, but it is by no means the end. I hope one day fine programmers will be packing their bags to join Loki, one of those bigger and better things."
