"Game developers, both those working with established projects and independent hobbyists, say they can't wait to start developing for the Indrema Entertainment System, a game box/Internet device running on Linux. Despite some questions developers have about the yet-to-be released Indrema Entertainment System, most are willing to give the company the benefit of the doubt for now."

"I became interested in Indrema because it seems more developer-friendly than anything else. Who else posts their [development kit] on their Web site?" says Steve Mosher, with a development team centered in Prince Edward Island, Canada. "The fact that it's Linux-based is a real help, since I'm very familiar with writing code for Linux systems."

"Early this week, Indrema announced the Indrema Developer Network (IDN), a Web site where anyone who wants to create Indrema-compatible games can get the tools to bring their visions to life. Indrema CEO John Gildred and Brian Behlendorf, founder of Open Source project hosting site Collab.net, touted the IDN as a "new age" of democratic gaming development, instead of the current model of proven gaming companies pitching titles to the big console manufacturers."
