March 27th, 2011 by Crusader

Ryan “icculus” Gordon will be among those speaking at this year’s Flourish! open source conference:

Ryan “Icculus” Gordon – Gaming on Linux

This talk will explore the history of video games on open source platforms, from Zork to First Person Shooters. We will discuss the games, the companies, the players, and which games and business models created an Epic Win.

Free Gamer also pointed out this interview ABC Linuxu conducted with Ryan about a variety of topics:

17) What’s your favorite Linux game? How much time do you usually spend playing games (incl. Wii and the like)?

My favorite Linux game at the moment is Braid, without a doubt. I loved it before I was working on it. I actually offered to do the Mac/steam version of Braid for free, just so I’d have an opportunity to look inside Jonathan Blow’s brain a little.
