Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


"Loki Software, Inc., the leading publisher of commercial games for the Linux operating system, today announces an agreement with Timegate Studios, a premier developer of entertainment software, to bring Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns to Linux. Kohan will be the first of the immensely-popular real-time strategy gaming genre to be commercially available for Linux."

"This is a tremendous coup for Linux games," said Scott Draeker, president of Loki Software. "The Linux version of this masterpiece will be released near-simultaneously with the Windows version in Q1 2001."

"A real-time fantasy war game for up to 8 players, Kohan is visually stunning and provides a rich gaming experience. Set in the mystical world of Khaldun, players must use strategy, tactics, and resource management to create a successful kingdom and to create and deploy their military forces. Special features of this upcoming title include the consideration of terrain, formation and company efficiency in combat and movement. The regimental command structure allows players to focus on strategy and tactics without micro-management. A rich fantasy setting with a detailed background and many unique races, places and magic guarantee excellent replay value. Players may also use a fully-functional editor with a random map generator to customize new scenarios, campaigns, and deathmatch maps."
