LinuxPR: Dark Horizons: Lore Ready for Linux Hardcore Gamers

Sep 24, 2004, 01:00 (3 Talkback[s])

GarageGames announced today the release of its hardcore game Dark Horizons: Lore for all Linux-based distributions.

Dark Horizons: Lore is a breakneck-speed first-person shooter based in a universe where the unfolding history of a war-torn Earth is revealed before the player's eyes. Warring factions in the year 2155 pit cybernetically-controlled mech-style machines of war against one another in savage team-based combat on a dark 3D Earth. Ferocious squad vs. squad action takes place as you and your teammates struggle to hold ground and complete objectives against enemy forces.

One of Dark Horizons: Lore's many compelling features is the sophisticated online tracking of player data and history which opens ladders, tournaments and rankings to the Lore gamer. This powerful "backend" aspect of Dark Horizons: Lore is the one of the focuses of the online MavLympics competition currently taking place at www.mavlympics.com.

"It's great to announce the linux release of Dark Horizons: Lore while we are still in the early adopter stage. This has allowed us to build in great play balance across all the platforms," says Adrian Wright, President of Max Gaming Technologies. "We're hoping to see all the new Linux squads out on the battlefield during MavLympics and beyond."

"It's always encouraging when we see independent developers breaking into new areas," says Jay Moore, GarageGames Evangelist. "With Dark Horizons: Lore now available on Linux computers, it provides a great native hardcore gaming experience for linux gaming aficionados."

A free time limited trail version is available for download for Linux as well as both Mac OS X and Windows. The online retail version is available for $24.95 at www.garagegames.com.
