    Some New Linux Games

    A go-kart racing game featuring Tux and friends

    SuperTuxKart is an enhanced version of TuxKart, a kart racing game, originaly done by Steve Baker, featuring Tux and a bunch of his friends. SuperTuxKart is the work of the GotM run for TuxKart at happypenguin.org. Due to some disagreements that happened in that time this fork of TuxKart was done.

    SuperTuxKart features include:

    new characters
    new tracks
    a completly new userinterface
    some smaller graphical improvemnts (skidmarks, smoke, animated wheels, etc.)
    whole bunch of new bugs, in its current state its not really playable

    License: free
    Additional System Requirements:

    OpenGL (or Mesa 3.0 or later)
    PLIB version 1.8.0 or later
    SDL version 1.2.4 or later
    SDL_image
    SDL_ttf

    Danger From The Deep
    http://dangerdeep.sourceforge.net/

    Danger from the deep (aka dangerdeep) is a Free / Open Source World War II german submarine simulation. It is currently available for Linux/i386 and Windows, but since it uses SDL/OpenGL it should be portable to other operating systems or platforms. (If anyone whishes to port it, please contact us.) This game is planned as tactical simulation and will be as realistic as our time and knowledge of physics allows. It's current state is ALPHA, but it is playable.

    Re: Some New Linux Games

    How bout multiplayer? Do any of these games have online play?

    That's always the first thing I look for in a game.


    Anyway, thanks for the list! (I wonder how many of these have PPC binaries?).

    I thought that SuperTuxKart is a little basic. I think that we all need to start making some games to be proud of with Linux. We have the stability, the hardware support, we now just need the time (I wish I could make games!)

    I am working on a game for Linux, its built on Java (yeah, yeah, I know), but its coming along nicely now. Its a clone of a table top game by Games Workshop. I have been pleasantly surprised at how many options are available for game programming in Java.

    Unfortunatly with my recent move and new job, the game probably won't see the light of day for a long time ... :-(

    Man oh man. Great topic.

    You forgot something, though.

    Nexuiz

    Nexuiz is a totally new game which has been in development for years. It's built on top of the Darkplaces engine, which is a heavily modified quake1. Mainly directed at fast-paced, basic, online multiplayer deathmatch. Sweet graphics, too, using OpenGL shaders, shadows, real-time lighting, bumpmapping and more.

    Nexuiz features include:
    - Up to 64 player battle out online.
    - 17 maps
    - 28 playable characters
    - 10 music tracks (cd playback supported)
    - Windows & Linux support, as well as x86_64
    - Extremely modder friendly
    - Works on older systems, as well as the very latest, allowing great graphical effects.

    License: GPL
    System Requirements
    200mb of hard drive space

    High Quality - Realtime lights and shadows on, bloom on, high detailed maps, 1024x768 or higher res
    - A 1.5-gigahertz Intel Pentium 4 chip or AMD Athlon 1500
    - 9600ati or 5700fx
    - 256 mb of ram

    Low Quality - no realtime lights, no bloom
    - 800mhz
    - Geforce Video card min
    - 256 mb of ram

    If you say that the game is called Robot Arena, I will be your man-slave.

    Heh, its a total conversion of the Space Hulk 2nd edition table top game. I have been playing that game since High School. I got a couple of buddies that still like to play too but we live on opposite sides of the US, so I am developing this game so we can play via email or network.

    I am looking into making the engine generic enough as to make it useable for any Games Workshop type game. They essentially run off the same basic idea, it is definitely possible. But for now, I would just like to finish the original game idea I had. :roll:
