21 More Notable Free Linux Games (Part 2 of 3)

Dec 20, 2010, 17:04 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to LinuxLinks for this link. ]

"Linux is not championed as a viable gaming platform in many communities, in part because of its smaller user base and the relatively low number of commercially supported native Linux games that are released each year. However, there are a number of encouraging developments on this front. For example, the Unigine engine should enable developers to produce high-quality 3D games with up-to-date visuals and advanced rendering. One title to be released using this engine is OilRush. This eagerly awaited title fuses a classical real time strategy with a Tower Wars genre.

"Notwithstanding these developments, Linux has an ever-expanding library of tens of thousands of free games, many of which are released under an open source license. A good proportion of these titles are entertaining, highly addictive, offer captivating gameplay, and are challenging.

"This article is the second instalment in a three part series, identifying free games that are worth giving a whirl. If you missed the first part, it is available to read here. We have again tried to cover a wide range of game genres. Hopefully there will be something in this article which will be of interest to any type of gamer."
