Multiplayer Love

February 27th, 2008 by Crusader

Rock, Paper, Shotgun pointed out the Love project, an artistic multiplayer game:

Love

The game itself, dubbed Love (as in For The Love Of Game Development), is an exploration-based moderately-multiplayer FPS with astounding impressionistic visuals and a procedurally generated universe. Since Steenberg is a one man show, he’s relying on clever maths to build the world for him and then clever gamers to come in and help him figure out where to take it, and what to do with it.

So far he’s already populated it with weird animals and wondrous, gaseous visuals, and he intends to build the world into a kind of communal adventure, where gamers work together to furnish a central village, defend it from enemy attack, and explore the surround world and its many dungeons.

The feature list mentions possible Linux support; Love is also being developed with a myriad of open source tools described in detail at the Quel Solaar site.

    So, yes, Linux support is possible. Yay.
