The April 2001 issue ofNext Generation magazine(shipped to subscribers, due on store shelves soon) has an eight page specialon the Indrema Linux-based game console,titled “Field of Indrema: If they build this console, will develoeprs come?”
Games specifically mentioned in the article (along with screenshots)included:
Slingshot’s Soul Ride 2,
Three Axis’ port of Pangea Software’s Nanosaur,
Hyperion Entertainment’s port of Monolith’s Shogo: Mobile Armor Division,
and Sunspire Studios’ Tux Racer.
There’s also a blurb about the possibilities of running MAME on it.
The article includes a photo of a very tasty looking new L600 design(which as of this writing hasn’t been put up on Indrema’s own site) – thedull grey has changed to an eye-catching chrome; discs are now insertedinto a slot, rather than a tray; the cool blue power light remains; and wefinally have a picture of the controller (it’s quite similar to analogPlayStation pads).
Bill also sent in a link to scanshe’s taken of the Next-Gen issue in question, so you can check out the Linux-based console’s (final?) designfor yourself.
Furthermore, Gamespy’s John Keefer let us know that they’veposted their own look at the L600; the editorialalso examines how the independent Linux game development community may affect the genesis of the system.
