Question

Posted

Linux isn't just to work. You can also have (and deserve) some fun too.
We should start a refence guide to Linux games available freely over the internet.
I know little uppon this matter, so, it's up to you, guys...

Every member should post in this way:

[I]A small introduction to the game and personal comments.[/I][/code]

[b]Cube - FPS[/b]

[url="http://wouter.fov120.com/cube/"]http://wouter.fov120.com/cube/[/url]

Cube is an open source multiplayer and singleplayer first person shooter game built on an entirely new and very unconventional engine. Cube is a landscape-style engine that pretends to be an indoor FPS engine, which combines very high precision dynamic occlusion culling with a form of geometric mipmapping on the whole world for dynamic LOD for configurable fps & graphic detail on most machines. Uses OpenGL & SDL.

[b]Racer[/b] - car driving/racing simulator (Open Source, on top of it all!)
[url="http://www.racer.nl/"]http://www.racer.nl/[/url]

I got this to install about a year and a half ago, but could not get it to run (various errors). Looks pretty impressive.



EDIT: Some good answers here. I'll pin this for the time being, and we'll see how this progresses. Edited by markjensen

[b]Enemy Territory[/b] - Quake3-engine based FPS (First Person Shooter)

[url="http://www.castlewolfenstein.com"]http://www.castlewolfenstein.com[/url]

[i]Originally slated to be an expansion to the popular Return to Castle Wolfenstein game, Splash Damage, after nearly completing the game, decided to make a standalone game because of the difference in playing styles, objectives, and classes that the game brought. ET has a strong community in the competitive world as well, with well over 200 active clans.[/i]

[b]Armagetron[/b] - 3D Action (Racing/Strategy)
[url="http://armagetron.sourceforge.net/"]http://armagetron.sourceforge.net/[/url]

[quote][i]In this game, you ride a lightcycle around the game grid. You can only make sharp turns of 90 degrees and a wall constantly builds up after you. Make your enemies crash into your wall, but be aware that they are trying to do the same to you. Only if you are fast enough, you may be able to trap them; but the only way to speed up your lightcycle is to drive close to the dangerous walls. Prepare for exciting strategic preparations followed by action-packed close combat![/i][/quote]

Those bubble ones are just spin-offs of the original Bubble Bobble, am I right?
