[News] Caster Ported to GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Caster released for Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The indie developer Electron recently released Caster for Linux. Caster is a 
| cross platform "3D" 3rd person shoot'em up game in which the character moves 
| cross a map, hunts different types of monsters and collects energy items. 
| Starting with one type of "weapon" the player collects five further weapons 
| throughout the episodes. Skills like jumping or dodging and weaponry can be 
| updated during the game depending on the score gained in the previous level.     



Gaming on Ubuntu (Linux)

| There is also always the opportunity to run a virtual machine to run your
| windows programs (that will be the topic of my next post). So, next time
| someone says to you that they don’t want to switch to Linux because they
| won’t be able to play games, you might want to correct them.


Open Source Shoot-Em-Up

| But lately, I’m also starting to see the appeal of doing without a hyped-up
| platform like Unreal Tournament 2004 or Battlefield 1942. Fracturing the mod
| community has sparked creativity, particularly when it comes to open-source
| games based on free engines. A lot of out-there projects are getting major
| traction with gamers—big attention that wouldn’t happen if everyone was still
| fixated on grinding out Onslaught maps or tweaking Desert Combat.


Linux-based device gains accelerometer-based games

,----[ Quote ]
| Chumby Industries announced a partnership with Albino Blacksheep to provide
| Flash-based games for the Linux-based Chumby "alarm-clock" computer,
| leveraging its motion-sensing capabilities. Meanwhile, Chumby's development
| site is growing, providing a forum, wikis, and other information for hacking
| the Chumby's open-source hardware and software.


Valve questions Microsoft's commitment to PC gaming

,----[ Quote ]
| Half-Life 2 developer Valve thinks that Microsoft's current
| "Games for Windows" marketing push is a cynical ploy to sell
| more copies of Windows Vista, rather than a genuine effort to
| invigorate the PC gaming market.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
