Minetest

August 1st, 2011 by Crusader

Minetest is a Minecraft-inspired open-source game project:

The main design philosophy is to keep it technically simple, stable and portable. It will be kept lightweight enough to run on fairly old hardware. It runs playably on a laptop with Intel 945GM graphics.

It is released under the GPL, with the intention that that way it is a lot easier to use by Linux users and people can report and help fix bugs more effectively.

This game is under development, and as of now, the game does not really differ from Minecraft except for having a lot less features. Still, playing is quite fun already, especially for people who have not been able to experience Minecraft.

Just as Minecraft was inspired by other titles, it’ll be interesting to see the directions this goes in as it develops.

QuakeCon 2011 Preview Podcast

August 1st, 2011 by Crusader

I’m not making it to QuakeCon for the second year in a row, so it’s a little depressing to listen to this new Bethesda Podcast where several people from id Software discuss the event and the company’s history:

Take a trip down memory lane with members of id Software, as they discuss the company’s early years, the magic of QuakeCon, and what fans can expect out of RAGE at this year’s event. Podcast features John Carmack, Tim Willits, Matt Hooper, Marty Stratton, Jonathan Wright, and “id Mom” Donna Jackson.

If you’re going this year, let me know how it is!

Centalist

August 1st, 2011 by Crusader

The Open Mind blog has a post delineating one hundred free Linux games:

This list includes all the popular and free high quality games that runs on Linux natively, from action/first-person shooters to real-time and turn-based strategy games to rpg/mmorpg etc.

I don’t think they’re in any particular order, and it’s cool to see screenshots for each title.
