Free RPG Editor is Open Source, Runs on Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| RPG programmers who are looking to escape the limitations and 
| fees associated with IBM's flagship RPG editor, Rational 
| Developer for i (RDi), now have another option with RPG Next 
| Gen, a free and open source RPG editor that is based on Eclipse 
| and runs under Linux. Created by Mihael Schmidt of Germany, the 
| RPG Next Gen project is still fairly young, but it shows promise 
| as a lightweight and easy-to-use source code editor.


Rage and other Tech5 games might be Linux-friendly

,----[ Quote ]
| id's idTech game engine has a long history of running well on 
| Linux-based machines. Games such as Quake were one of the very 
| few really big PC titles that found themselves installed on all 
| the many flavors of Linux out there.


Linux users show their love for indie game

,----[ Quote ]
| As you can see Linux is way up there, which is quite a surprise 
| to say the least. For every 232 Linux visitors I get on my 
| website, one of them buys my game. If you compare that to 
| windows users, I need 526 of them to get a sale. For Mac OS X 
| itâs 256. So who would have thought that Linux users are the 
| most eager to buy an indie game? Certainly not me.


So Windows users are the 'freetards', GNU/Linux users are generous.


LGP History pt 1: How LGP came to be

,----[ Quote ]
| Back in the day, 1999, around august time to be exact, I was working for a
| fairly horrible company in London. I had been a beta tester on Lokiâs
| Civilisation: Call to Power, but I couldnât easily buy a copy from anywhere
| in the UK. Finally, a friend and I ordered it from the states. We waited
| weeks for the delivery, and finally a month or so after ordering, it arrived.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
