Recently, there was a post on Slashdot about PoxNora. They did not mention that this totally Java-based game runs on Linux. PoxNora uses the new JOGL, which allows Java applications to use full 3D hardware acceleration. PoxNora automatically distributes the pre-compiled binaries needed via Java webstart – all players have to do it click the “play now” button. The artwork is amazing, and the game is really very fun. Its a web based multiplayer mix of a turn-based strategy, RPG, and collectable card game. You can also play totally for free.
