Ballistics for Linux has been released from Linux Game Publishing.

Details here http://www.linuxgamepublishing.com/info.php?id=13&

Get it here http://www.jbox.ca/performance/ballistics-for-linux.html

There doesn't seem to be an ebuild for a demo at this point.

Cheers,
Jason

As a core member of the development team, I feel a little bad about announcing this myself, but I don't seem to be the only one who does this.

It's not a full game though, it's only a techdemo.

open Outcast

It will be an action adventure, a free sequel to Outcast.

I have got a segmentation fault on Gentoo 64 Bit. Other than that, it seems to work fine for most Linux people.

i'd like to try it under gentoo how do i install it?
it says ./launcher: error while loading shared libraries: libtiff.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
i installed tiff but the librairies version on my system is :/usr/lib/libtiff.so.3.8.2 and there is no libtiff.so.4 in portage

Thanks to Thomas Pani @ bugzilla there is now an ebuild at PokerTH 0.5
be aware to host a table you will need "Hamachi" installed and running
players can be found on the IRC channel "irc.freenode.net" channel #PokerTH no password
Bring it on :)

Quake 4 has a new point release, bringing it from version 1.3.2 to 1.4.2 according to http://www.idsoftware.com/games/quake/quake4/index.php?game_section=updates

    The full shebang installer: quake4-linux-1.4.2.x86.run

    A patchup script: quake4-linux-update-1.3-to-1.4.2.x86.run


Gentoo bugzilla has an ebuild for the adventurous 173491

This would affect the quake4-bin package.

SoulFu has recently become "niceware" and the source code has been released with the installer. Linux and Mac bins are available.
There isn't an linux installer but you can run the installer in wine the copy over the files and run it natively with the linux bin.
A really fun game to play with some friends :)

Yes, it's inside the installer. (So you will have to use wine)
As for the license I don't really know... Many people told me that it's a "funny" license.
But it can't be that bad because the author writes on http://www.aaronbishopgames.com :
Quote:
Oh, yeah... Did I mention this game is now FREE! If anybody wants to setup a mirror, that'd help! So would a SourceForge project...

I hope the development will somehow continue.

Edit: This was in the manual.
Quote:
Alterations

This is the development version of Secret of Ultimate Legendary Fantasy: Unleashed, complete with source code. I hereby grant all users permission to modify this game and to distribute derivative works, provided that the following conditions are met:

1. The title screen (WSPLASH), main menu (WMAIN), and "Be Nice" window (WMONEY) must remain intact and unchanged.

2. The disclaimer and distribution text above must be included and abided by.

3. This manual must be included.

4. The high standard of quality must be maintained. Official-ish releases should be voted on by members of the Official-ish forum, and the virtue system should be expanded. It must always change for the better.

5. The NICEWARE system must remain working and enforced - no "work arounds" may be made. In order to access all character classes, the player must type "I SWEAR I DID SOMETHING NICE" one time per session.

Doesn't look that bad :)

EDIT2: Found the SF page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/soulfucommunity/
