Savage 2 announced for Linux

January 29th, 2006 by Lightkey

According to a forum post, one of the S2 Games developers expects the Linux client of Savage 2: A Tortured Soul to be available at launch time.

This multiplayer game consists of two teams, humans and beasts on Newerth, on each side with one strategy player that builds, orders necessary things, delegates while the other players fight each other in a third person view if they are not in search of experience points or important items.

    Savage is one of my favorite games for Linux. I’m really excited to see this news! I hope that everyone considers buying this game to support S2. I’m sure it will be great!

    uh…. how?
    Weren’t they a) lacking a linux developer
    and b) lacking an openGL engine?
    Wonder what’s changed, or if this was just misinterpreted as wishful thinking.

    This’d be awesome if it does happen, and hopefully, they’ll get a proper worldwide release this time, so I get some retail servers in australia. Last time, the demo was all we had down here, kinda killed it :(.
