Linux is now truly Civilized.

Australia's leading online Linux retailer, EverythingLinux, is proud to announce the availability of Civilization: Call to Power for Linux.

In an unprecedented move, Lokisoft Games has released Civilization: Call to Power for Linux, bringing the greatest strategy game of all time to this compelling operating system.

With over 2.5 million copies sold, the Linux release of this immensely popular title forges a new path in proving Linux as a highly capable applications environment.

The native Linux/X11 port of Civilization: Call to Power has been one of the most highly anticipated releases of the year for Linux enthusiasts.

Managing Director of EverythingLinux, Mr Anthony Rumble, says "The interest in Civilization for Linux has been huge, we've been flooded with enquiries over recent weeks, and it's been selling hot off the site from the moment we put it online. This is the best game for Linux since Quake II."

Civilization: Call to Power for Linux may be ordered online at the EverythingLinux Web site for the initial sale price of $69.00.

New features offered by the Call to Power release include vast new realms, fully animated hi-res graphics, unconventional warfare strategies, a scenario builder, and mulitiplayer Internet and LAN support.

Build an empire to span history from primitive beginnings into the sci-fi future of 3000 AD. Lead your turn-based conquest on land, to the recesses of the ocean and into the vastness of outer space. Every strategy devised, technology discovered and war waged has repercussions on your future world.

Now you can achieve world domination, with Linux.
