"There's no doubt about it; Tribes 2 was hyped. Hyped more than
any other games I can remember; it was one of those legendary
sequels like Team Fortress 2 or Duke Nukem Forever. Tribes 2 --
unlike the others -- is not only ready for release, but its ready
for a Linux release."
"I remember signing a petition in July of 1999 with a desperate
hope that Tribes 2 would be ported to Linux, and so did a few
thousand others. Whether it had anything to do with a petition or
not, a year and a half later, we're creeping towards a Linux
release of Tribes 2. Loki is doing a simultaneous port, in hopes of
a common release date."
"Tribes 2 is a big deal for Linux gaming, right up there with
the Quake series. It takes us a step above and beyond the slew of
first person shooters for Linux and provides something original.
Its uniqueness will appeal to a different crowd, broadening the
Linux gaming community."
