The other thing I've found quite interesting is Mana World - it's a slash'n'dash (whatever that means) MMORPG that looks exactly like the SNES classic The Secret of Mana ...but maybe it's still in too early development to be put into portage.


Well helping out with the ebuild would be greatly appreciated since it's a tricky one:

The first thing is that it uses 2 libraries that (afaik) aren't in the Portage yet: JGMOD and AllegroFont. On top of that it's depending on the Allegro 4.1-branch, which is currently marked as unstable in the Portage (on most of the target architectures).

It's true that the game is still in early development (in a pre-alpha stage, I think), but still, it's a Linux game that lacks an ebuild. Anyone feeling like helping out (at least with the dependancies)? :)

I've managed to make Dungeon Crawl work thanks to this thread, but I see over a year has passed since Pythonhead made an ebuild for it, yet I can't find it in bugzilla or anywhere else...It's a pity more people can't enjoy that game. Does anyone know why it doesn't make it to portage?

Another great game (if you like roguelikes) that doesn't have an ebuild is NPPAngband. It is one of the most actively developed Angband variants. I -have- tried to make an ebuild for it starting from an existing one (the angband ebuild), but I don't know enough to do it right. Someone more knowledgeable should probably try ;P

Is there an ebuild for AGS so that Gentoo users easily can play the vast amount of AGS-created adventure games?

This is their homepage:
http://www.bigbluecup.com/games.php

There is a port for it here:
http://drevil.warpcore.org/ags/

And then we have LucasFan who recreate their favorite Lucasart games(these should be playable if AGS is used):
http://people.freenet.de/lucasfangames/maniac/games_eng.htm

And Tierra entertainment who recreate their favorite Sierra games (these should be playable if AGS is used):
http://www.agdinteractive.com/games.php

I've tried searching for them using portage, but I can't seem to find any of them. I did however find scummvm and the freeware games it supports! 8)

If this thread is going to be sticky, shouldn't someone take the time to continue updating the first post, it seems the last time it was updated was in APRIL.

The demo for Uplink.

Coolest Indie Game Ever? Pretty damned likely!

(I'll grant you, the game's not open source, but an ebuild would still be nice.)

Head over heels (remake
with new graphics)


there is a linux version here

manual installation is very easy: just untar, log as root and run
#./install
then #hoh to play and (from root) #hoh-uninstall to uninstall.
some tips for dependencies are in the txt file inside the tar archive.
