With all of the talent Neowin has, would it be possible for people here to create a good (with plot), first person shooter for Linux?

What I'm thinking is that with all of the free engines for Linux, and all of the gaming talent that Neowin has, and the programmers (that are so talented they can produce their own version of Linux) why couldn't Neowin user base produce a high quality single player game for Linux?

That would be amazing! I have no skills in that area, but I'd use Linux just to play the game if it was ever made :p

From browsing around I can tell the talent is, and Linux gives us the tools.... sooo with a bit of interest I'm wondering what kind of game Neowin would like to produce. I remember Deus Ex being amazingly popular, so I would suggest a FPS based on something similar.

I respect your enthusiasm and all but please be realistic , which names here do you see have talent in 3D modeling,Rigging,Level design,game-engine-development/programming, storyline etc etc , which can be teamed up if neowin pays for it (if thats what you meant) give the names.

dont just look around seeing linux topics and answers and think this forum is filled abundant talent to pump out a Modern 3D game.

If people here can spit a Flash game (browser based shockwave) even that will be good.

I was once at your stage of thinking too. look at my sig on what I have settled for real gaming.

Making a game would be very time consuming and hard. Even making a mod can take years. And a good mod well look at BMS. I think flash based would be the limit. Trust me in 2006 I was learning C++ to make games and I gave up because I do not have the time or money to do that stuff lol. But feel free I would not mind helping out a little.

Okay guys we know its going to be hard, thats that point. We know its going to take time and thats fine, quality doesn't come overnight

For names we need volunteers first, and even before we get modeling talent... we need a story, a plot.

So does anyone have an interest in writing?

Why does it have to be a first person shooter, we got enough of those already?! How about a decent real-time strategy game for linux if you're going to make an effort? :)

My vision is a Deus Ex like game, that had elements of both. Maybe a poll is in order?

    Your order is meaningless. My chaos is significant.

Why not an Adventure game? Well, I know those are not very popular around here :(
