Ryan “FlyingIcculusMonster” Gordon updated his .plan with news of bunny-murder-simulator Lugaru‘s release for Linux. The game is available as a downloadable demo which can be transformed into the full game after an online purchase. Gordon also shares his opinion on the recent Quake 3 source release:
If you haven’t been paying attention, the source code to Quake 3 Arena was released a few days ago under the GPL license. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy. Learn how it works, and then make something beautiful with it.
Q3A is probably one of my favorite codebases to have had the honor to work with. There’s just so many places where you get these “holy shit, that’s a brilliant idea” moments. I don’t know what Doom 3 looks like under the hood, but Quake 3 was a real marvel of engineering as much as anything else.
As always, three cheers to John Carmack for being a True Believer and putting this out there!
