Filed under
Gaming

maximumpc.com: Fear is subjective. What scares ones person might not scare another. Horror, as a genre, encompasses a wide palette of emotions, from disgust to fear to unease, and two recent games show just how many chords it can strike.

The challenges of developing long, plot-heavy FOSS games

Filed under
Gaming

freegamer.blogspot: Xenogears is one of my favorite games of all time. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, it was a Japanese RPG for the Sony PS1 in 1998. Xenogears was never really finished. Painfully, these issues apply in even greater force to non-commercial game projects.

The Humble Indie Bundle: Leaving no customer behind

Filed under
Gaming

joystiq.com: The charitable, almost casually presented collection of indie games, The Humble Indie Bundle, was born from an earnest approach to customer service. Wolfire Games offered a user-determined price point, ditched DRM, shared earnings with charity organizations and targeted multiple platforms -- including Windows, Mac OS and Linux -- when it launched the first Humble Indie Bundle in May 2010.

Gaming

linux-magazine.com: For as long as I've owned a computer, I've been looking for Mahjong game. Not a decent Mahjong game, but any at all. Nor did I ever find a Mahjong game that ran natively in GNU/Linux -- not, that is, until KDE released Kajongg.

The Linux desktop-a-week review: LXDE

Over the last two weeks I’ve run nothing but LXDE as my primary Linux Desktop Environment (other than a few excursions into Android land). Been using LXDE. Been enjoying LXDE. But I have practically nothing to really say about LXDE. I feel like, after all this time, I should have something interesting to talk about. But I just plain don’t. It’s fast, blisteringly fast. And it’s damned lightweight too. After that, things get pretty boring. Read more

Neptune OS 4.2 Features a Refreshing KDE Desktop

ZevenOS-Neptune 4.x branch is called "It's all about you" and it was initially made available back in June. This is the second update for the distribution and the devs have refined some of the features and have added some new packages into the mix. The system is based on KDE, but don't expect to find a regular stock version implemented. It's clear that the devs have put a lot of effort into making the DE experiences unique. Users can immediately recognize what distribution they are looking at just with a glance, and that's always a good sign. Read more

How to Get Open Source Android

Android is an astonishing commercial success, and is often touted as a Linux success. In some ways it is; Google was able to leverage Linux and free/open source software to get Android to market in record time, and to offer a feature set that quickly outstripped the old champion iOS. But it's not Linux as we know it. Most Android devices are locked-down, and we can't freely download and install whatever operating systems we want like we can with our Linux PCs, or install whatever apps we want without jailbreaking our own devices that we own. We can't set up a business to sell Google Android devices without jumping through a lot of expensive hoops (see The hidden costs of building an Android device and Secret Ties in Google's "Open" Android.) We can't even respin Google Android however we want to and redistribute it, because Google requires bundling a set of Google apps. Read more
