"Paradox Entertainment has licensed the Canadian developer Tribsoft the right to convert the acclaimed historical game Europa Universalis to Linux. Tribsoft Inc. will cooperate with Hyperion Entertainment on the Mac and Amiga version."

"The market for Linux software has grown explosively the last year. The lack of new games for Mac has also been evident and Europa Universalis, which has a sophisticated market, fits the platform. Paradox Entertainment internally developed the Windows-version but has decided to licence the right to Tribsoft who has specialized in converting popular games especially for Linux."

"In Europa Universalis the player takes the role as one of eight superpowers during 300 years, from the age of Columbus to Napoleon. 60 minor countries are AI controlled and will react to world events and the player's actions. Religion, Trade, Conquest, Discoveries and Diplomacy must be managed skilfully to win the game! It is one of the most ambitious historic games ever made and has been critically acclaimed by international gaming press."
