    Why do all the games with “lord” or “lords” in their name some-how are designed to mimick “Lords of The Realms” ?

    It’s a good example of an Open Source project. Support Michael and his crew; good people. I know — I used to do some early development.

  3. Anonymous Says: own project though. *l* I know it is timeconsuming and all. The most important is to make it fun and easy! With a plot it gets interesting too. Think this project is a good one. A tip: Make the buttons on the intro-screen in the final 1.0 release more polished (duh). It looks like the buttons does not bellong to that picture.

    I sure liked Linuxgames a lot better when it wasn’t a happypenguin clone…

    Seriously, Linuxgames shouldn’t be “freshmeat for linux games”- that role is already filled, and Happypenguin does a much better job of that than Linuxgames does. [b]Cut with the release announcements.[/b] Include a happypenguin newsfeed if you want release announcements.

    The FreeLords developers are on it. So be patient and look for future versions, if you want help, subscribe at our mailing-list and/or install the 0.2.0 and help tracking bugs.

    If you think the ingame gfx suck, make some better one and send them to us.

    It’s quite OpenSource, so stop laming and start to help.
