The State of Open Source Gaming on Linux

Filed under

OSS
Gaming

This year has been particularly fruitful in its addition of ports from big names, but prior to the wave of ports that came recently, Linux and UNIX games were predominantly cloned or original games made by the community. Some of these sites are short on funding and require support to continue providing content. OpenGameArt’s founder, Bart Kelsey, has asked for funding to maintain the site in a campaign that is currently at 65 percent of it’s goal — and I urge you to support this and other projects connected with open source gaming.

November will be a very crowded month, and a lot of high-profile games are scheduled to launch, but it looks like the community forgot one of the biggest launches of all, the Steam Machines from Valve.

With all the excitement about November, the community forgot about the upcoming launch of the Steam Machines, but Valve is also to blame. The company hasn’t said anything in a long while, and it doesn’t seem to have any kind of marketing campaign in place.

GNOME and KDE

  • Community Time at Collabora [Ed: Mono]
  • Refocus
    Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy. [...] Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
