Bygfoot v1.4.0 is a football (a.k.a. “soccer”) championship simulation game for Linux. Such games are quite popular among Win users in some countries, but there was no Linux equivalent — a gap that has been fortunately filled by Bygfoot.
Bygfoot allows you to manage your team extensively by hiring and firing players, building and keeping the stadium, defining playing strategy and style and so on. Although lovers of shooter games will find it dull, Bygfoot will be seductive to those who favour strategy games and have a lot of time to spend (because it’s addictive!).
The game is very user-friendly: after installation you can start playing rightaway without much care. Game documentation provides hints on how to be more successful, but most of them would be discovered by the player himself after some time.
Bygfoot is based on gtk+2 and is licenced under the GPL.

Aepox System has issued the following press release last night:
Aepox Games is proud to announce that as of July 1st, 2004, the Andromeda Online open beta has begun (www.andromedaonline.net).
Andromeda Online is a strategic starship wargame (with clients for the Mac, Windows and Linux). Players design a command crew, pick a stock starship or design their own, and go into battle! And while one-on-one battles are a blast, that’s only the beginning! Why play with just one ship when you can command of fleet?! Command an armada of up to 500 scouts, fighters, cruisers, battleships, even space stations! Break them off into fleets and sub-fleets as you scour the galaxy looking for your opponents ships.
Andromeda Online offers unparalleled scalability! Play just one ship against your opponents, or use of fleet! A unique damage based point system ensures that one can use an infinite number of strategies, and still win. Hide in asteroid fields, nebulae were even a deadly plasma storm! Play games with as many as 10 players at a time, make teams and alliances, even play with or against the computer! Design your own crew and ships, offering a micromanagement design for players who are interested, and trade your ship designs online! Or, focus purely on the battle, learn to draw your opponents into hazardous areas, send in micro cloaked fighters, so small and invisible they are nearly impossible to hit! How will you grow your empire? The choice is up to you…
The open beta has begun, and we are accepting all people who wish to participate. The test is schedualed to run through September 30th. Go to www.andromedaonline.net to learn more!
