"Creativity is the life source of the open source movement and
operating systems like Linux. It's also the driving force behind
any good game. Uniqueness, creativity, a strong plot, and good
support technologies and ideas make ideas come to life on the
computer screen. A few weeks ago I surfed the internet for a
unique, quality, commercial game for Linux that was not a game I
already had for Windows. In short, I was hoping to find a good game
in the genre I enjoy designed for Linux and of a quality that I
would want to buy."
"Everything I found were Linux ports of Windows games or
half-finished open source projects that were often themselves knock
offs of other wildly popular games of days gone by. As much as I
wholeheartedly support what Loki Games is trying to do with Linux
gaming, I simply wanted something unique to spend my hard earned
money on that day."
"I began digging deeper to try to find why there are no Wing
Commanders, StarCrafts, and Baldur's Gate 2 for Linux. I mean
honest-to-goodness solid games that are either fresh out even in
the Windows world with a Linux port, or an original game that is
primarily marketed to Linux gamer fans instead of Windows."
