CrossOver Games

March 21st, 2008 by Crusader

The CodeWeavers site has a post from CEO Jeremy White which mentions that they will be releasing a gaming-oriented version of their Wine-derived product CrossOver:

In the next few weeks we are going to launch a new product called ‘CrossOver Games’. CrossOver Games is an entry level product that lets you play a broad range of games, particularly games with a lot of replayability such as MMOs like World of Warcraft and the range of games from Valve (e.g. Team Fortress 2, CSS, and so on). CrossOver Games will be available for free to any of our CrossOver Mac or Linux Professional customers. The idea is that we will rev CrossOver Games more quickly than regular CrossOver, so as to better take advantage of all of the great work being done on Wine with respect to games. The regular CrossOver will continue on a more stable and reliable pace. We’re doing this in part to try to generate some buzz and interest; we feel like Rodney Dangerfield when it comes to games – we’d like to earn some respect. We feel strongly that CrossOver will be the finest way to run games on a Linux or Mac system, and we want to shout that from the rooftops!

    Huh. Well, thats good. Because you know, Cedega essentially blows. Their support has always sucked — they don’t reply to support emails from subscribing customers. A lot of the time their ‘supported’ games do not work correctly.. it takes them forever to address a patch related issue in MMO’s..

    Basically, the CrossOver guys would have to try pretty hard to such as much as Cedega. We’ll see if this pans out to be useful for those MMO’s we can get on linux.
