After a period of beta testing, Introversion Software has announced the release of DEFCON, a global thermonuclear war sim with multiplayer support, for Linux:

Good news to all Linux users as we announce the release of DEFCON Linux today!

Apologies to all those who have been waiting for this release. As so often occurs with development, we experienced some unforeseen delays, this time due to compatibility complications between the Mac and PC DEFCON versions but we hope you’re happy with the results :)

DEFCON Linux will be available to all existing DEFCON PC users free of charge, using your existing key code. You can download it here from:

For those of you who’ve been holding out until this release – you can now buy DEFCON Linux for £10 from:

    … as opposed to what is going on for Serious Sam 2. They’ve posted nothing in months on the status of the beta or provide any new updates. Kudos to Introversion for sticking with this & getting the Linux community the final version out. :)

    I think it’s time I cancel my preorder for SS2 & look for something else instead.

    A thing of beauty.

    I guess they are too busy with ssam3 to make it official but the latest beta is pretty solid:

    Has anybody read the highly amusing PDF manual that comes with the game? It details how to build a shelter and lists a recommended survival kit. One of the items is a rubber chicken.

    On the main screen, if I press Buy Now it opens a browser window in the background which opens http://www.thelabelman.com/website_buy.php. It’s a website about someone who buys er… crate labels such as those on fruit crates :p
