Overgrowth Update

July 19th, 2011 by Crusader

The exceedingly Linux-friendly developer Wolfire Games (of Humble Indie Bundle and Lugaru fame) has continued development of their next title, Overgrowth, and in the comments for a recent dev diary, David Rosen mentioned the state of things for Linux:

All of the alphas work on Mac and Windows, and we are working on getting someone to do the initial Linux port, and then I can maintain that every week as well.

Looking forward to it!

    Ah yes, the Duke Nukem Forever of Linux games.

    Too many release of games on alpha or beta. I’ll wait until the final release.
    Anyway, it’s still good news.

    ‘working on getting someone’? I was quite convinced Icculus was doing it.

    “Duke Nukem Forever”? Ouch. The Wolfire guys have been pretty nice to us relatively speaking. That and I think there are a few other Linux title that would deserve that title more. I thought they said they’d get Icculus too. I wonder if that fell through.

    Surely the “Duke Nukem Forever of Linux” would have to be Unreal Tournament…

    I would think that with all the money the Wolfire kids made with the various bundles that they could afford Iculus for their flagship game. Maybe someone bigger offered him more…
