"Loki is doing quite well these days. With a few successful ports under its belt, and many more on the way, Loki is an instrumental part of making Linux games happen. Their latest shipping game title, Railroad Tycoon II, is an entertaining and addictive strategy game, similar to Loki's Civilization: Call to Power in its addictiveness."

"Railroad Tycoon II has been out for Windows for a little while now. The version that Loki ported was the Gold Edition, which includes the original game, the Second Century expansion, and more scenarios. Gold Edition was not available for Windows users until September, so this Linux port is quite recent."

"The Linux version of Railroad Tycoon II requires Linux, an X server with 1024x768 resolution configured, Pentium 133, 16MB RAM, a 4X CD-ROM, 200 MB free hard drive space, and Internet access for multiplayer gameplay. The system tested was a Pentium III 500 MHz with 256 MB RAM and a Voodoo3 3000 card running Red Hat Linux 6.1. Railroad Tycoon II does not take advantage of 3D acceleration, but being the kind of strategy game that it is, it's not required."
