    It’s wonderful to see so many Linux games. I just wonder why it takes so long to go from beta to published release. Wasn’t Majong released by Pyrogon for Linux before LGP started their Majong beta? I don’t understand.

    Gorky 17 (AKA Odium) looks like it’s pretty interesting. I’ll likely pick up all three of these titles. I’ve already signed up for the betas. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Interesting how it’s Epic jumping 2 of these out, seem to be getting fairly pro-linux there.

    Gorky17 / Odium is awesome. I bought it when it was released for windows a few years ago (when I was still dual booting). If the price is not too high (say, 15$) I’ll gladly buy another copy. :)

    I think that the time Windows ‘LongShot’ is released (that, I hear, is not compatible with previous Windows) will be a good time for Linux to gain some desktop market quick, and it will require a variety of games (e.g. not 10+ FPS). I am happy to see games that have been in developement for 2 or 3 years where they planned Linux from the start, appearing. As much as I would like to have seen many games come to Linux years ago, there will be a time delay of probibly 3 years without requireing a rewrite of game code, delaying a release by a couple months that companies just can’t risk. A port will be needed for the next Windows I belive, so companies should be trying to write cross platform now for a quick port later, why not throw in Linux support?
    Anyhow, all these games look very good and I hope I have time to play some!

    as Mr Simms is so kind to answer some questions, I have one, too. I’ve set my eyes on Disciples 2 and there is very little info on the status of this title. So could you please comment on this one, please?

    Regarding the new titles:
    – Gorky 17 : booked :)
    – Knights & Merchants: booked (Sounds like a better version of “Defender of the Crown”)
    – Software Tycoon: not interested (but good to see yet another genre appearing)

    And if you will offer Northland and Divine Divinity too: Both booked ;)

    Thanks and good luck to your future endeavours Mr Simms :o)

    Wow. I’ve played the demo for Knights and Merchants on windows. Funny I don’t see a windows port on Epic Interactive’s site. But anyway, it’s good that this game is coming to linux. I signed up for the beta too. And if it comes out in December, I might decide to buy it =)

    Divine Divinity + Knights & Merchants….saw the shots *droooool* Hope they are good and wellballanced as well. So easy setting the jump bar on 6’7″ (too high) just to be disapointed.

    Gorky (park?) I dunno squat about. Looks real cool.

    Soon I will have so many games to buy:

    * UT2004
    * Knights & Merchants
    * Divine Divinity
    * Dominions 2 (If I have the money to)
    * Gorky 17 (any money left?)

    This will be a great and exciting time to come, me thinks. :-)

    Epic homepage say that Northland and Divine Divinity also will come for linux.

    Many people say “well it’s £5/$/Euros on Windows what’s the point” but the point is they are different platforms. Many games appear on other platforms at different times because they are different markets. The Linux market is not the Windows market is not the PS2 market ad infinitum. We are here because we want Linux games, hence the website. We Linux gamers have actually enjoyed Windows bargain games such as Serious Sam and Kingpin courtesy of so stop complaining. If you want to play Windows games then play them but don’t then complain there aren’t enough games under Linux.

    Ready for beta already? Why not announce them a bet earlier then?[br]
    I payed some good money for K&M for OS X only a week or two ago, to hear that it’s now being ported to a more preferred OS :-(

    i’ve signed up for several beta’s now and refused on each one..meaning either the linux market is now big enough for them to be that choosy or they really do want you to buy their stuff to beta test…fine they should just say that so I can stop wasting my time signing up

    Is this game EVER going to ship? I pre-ordered over a year and a half ago, but this game seems to have completely died.
