As some of you know, we had been looking for someone to port Osmos to Linux. But in the end, after mulling it over for a while (and a couple nice offers from experienced Linux folk), our very own Dave Burke has decided to tackle the port himself! Who knew he was such a masochist? ;-)
Anyways, Dave has reported back that after some initial head-banging on installation and configuration (he’s started with Ubuntu), things are progressing really well. Hooray for cross-platform libraries like OpenGL, OpenAL, libogg/vorbis, etc. and well abstracted code!
- Osmos is 100% DRM and region free.
- Sublime electronic soundtrack by Loscil, Gas/High Skies, Julien Neto, Biosphere, and more.
- Procedural generation: play random versions of any level.
When available, the Linux version can be purchased online for $10 US.
