Humble update: open source extension (5/11/10)

,----[ Quote ]
| The Humble Indie Bundle experiment has been 
| a massive success beyond our craziest 
| expectations. So far, in just over 7 days, 
| 125,520 generous contributors have put down 
| an incredible $1,150,639. Of this, 
| contributors chose to allocate 30.91% to 
| charity: $355,716 for the Electronic 
| Frontier Foundation and Child's Play 
| Charity. I have made a page for the full 
| breakdown including credit card fees in a 
| JSON format here (json).


Lugaru goes open-source

,----[ Quote ]
| In the spirit of the Humble Indie Bundle, 
| we have decided to release the source code 
| to Lugaru! Our community has already made 
| some great mods by editing the levels and 
| graphics, but source code access will allow 
| for much deeper modifications. The coding 
| style is what you might expect from a self-
| taught high school student, so it could be 
| a challenge to understand, but feel free to 
| give it a shot! 


Warp Speed â 2D Multiplayer Shooter

| Two indie companies Por Design and Double 
| Dude decided to combine forces to work on a 
| new game named Warp Speed which as Iâve 
| confirmed will have a native GNU/Linux 
| client !

Open Letter To LGP

,----[ Quote ]
| CK was wondering about those old games 
| Disciples 2: Dark Prophecy and Bandits: 
| Phoenix Rising that were announced by LGP 
| about 7 years ago at 2003.

| For example, the latest Alien Arena in the 
| ubuntu repositories is 7.33, which we have 
| installed here on altFIRE (upgrading 
| soon!). You could of course download the 
| new binaries from the official website, but 
| like me you might like to keep things apt-
| based so upgrades just involves running 
| apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade. 


Why there is a Market for Linux Games

,----[ Quote ]
| Judging by that pie chart Linux users 
| appear to make up almost 25% of the 
| donations and their average donation amount 
| is almost double that of the average 
| Windows user donation. This means that of 
| the 571,048$ donated thus far 142,762$ is 
| from Linux users. But remember Linux users 
| are cheap and their is no money in Linux 
| game market - right.
| Games that already exist on only the 
| Windows platform need ports as well. In 
| fact there is so much demand for some of 
| these games to run on Linux that 
| Codeweavers has a business commercially 
| supporting many of these titles on the 
| Linux operating system (its not perfect - 
| but for now it works).
