Sylvain Labbe aka Ozzy from Sunday Coders announced the GNU/Linux release of his game Marball Odyssey.

I’m proud to announce that Marball Odyssey is ready to go for Gnu/Linux with the help of many community enthusiasts!
The game is available as a shareware proggy on the Sunday Coders website.

The Full version is available as a DRM free ‘bundle’ including both Gnu/Linux and Windows versions for a price of €9.99. (many more platforms are planned and will be included into the bundle).

About the game:
MarBall Odyssey is an extremely well polished and addictive game which follows the theme of the classic game marble madness, with a few twists.
The principle of MarBall Odyssey is simple: guide the ball to the exit without falling out of bounds, avoiding obstacles or by triggering various mechanisms.
Along the route, you can pick up various bonuses to improve your score.

Rules and Achievements:
collecting all rings will create additional extra coins
collecting all big coins will activate a special blue portal and one extra life on start.
collecting all extra coins will give an extra life on exit.
Activating a purple checkpoint is giving more time.
Fences can be broken using the big ball or the small ball with high velocity.
bridges can be broken using the big ball.
Yellow buttons can be used only with the big ball.
You can climb onto walls using doors and bumpers.
Finishing a level is unlocking the next one.

Magrathean ported their Incognito trilogy to GNU/Linux !
The GNU/Linux version of their games can be bought via Indievania for only $5 per episode.
The trilogy will also be available from Desura, when they begin offering a GNU/Linux support.
Incognito Episode 4 is under development…

About
John Smith (generic name, you can choose your own) is a man in trouble. He’s lost everything he has in the Stock Market, his house is in danger of being washed away due to erosion. All he has is a life insurance policy. Depressed and despondent, he decides to end it all. Climbing to the top of his office building. A split second before he hits the ground, a wormhole opens up, and he vanishes! John awakens in a strange place. It’s clearly a high-tech world, but he can’t read any of the writing or understand the language he’s hearing. What’s going on; is he dead and in Hell?

Incognito is meant to deliver simplified versions of gameplay from different genres and bring them together into a game that’s epic in scale and requires different genre skills but is easy for the average hardcore gamer to jump into and play from beginning to end.

These genres change at each “zoom level” of the game:
When you’re on foot, it’s a First-Person Shooter with RPG elements
When you’re in your ship, it’s a Space Trading/Combat Simulation
When you’re in low orbit of a planet, it’s a Simple Real-Time Strategy Game
When you’re in your hovertank, it’s a Tank Combat Game

In order to progess through each Episode, you’ll have to conquer challenges at each level, gathering information on foot, exploring in your ship, landing on uninhabited planets and establishing bases, and on hostile planets, invading a planet’s surface defenses in the hovertank.

Troy Hepfner from “My Game Company” asked me to publish this request for a GNU/Linux testers for his upcoming game Dirk Dashing 2.

Hello, everyone!

Dirk Dashing 2 is almost ready for its pre-order release, and I could use a little help testing the Linux version!

I’m using a new Linux installer this time around, and I want to make sure it works. I recently became aware that my Bitrock installers (which I used for my other games) were crashing on Fedora 15, and although the latest version of Bitrock fixes the problem, I can’t afford to upgrade. So I’ve switched to InstallJammer. This is my first installer I’ve made with it. I’ve already found and fixed a lot of initial issues that my testers found, but now I want to open it up to test on a wider set of distributions.

In return, you get to play through the demo a week ahead of it’s official pre-order release. Let me know if you find any bugs, and feel free to comment on the game itself – especially if you like it (I could use the encouragement)! Suggestions are also welcome, though bear in mind that any enhancement requests probably won’t make it into the initial beta release.

You can download the demo beta from here:
http://www.mygamecompany.com/downloads/dirkdashing2setup_linux

The game uses OpenGL, and requires the use of accelerated graphics drivers. It’s 32-bit, so if you’re using a 64-bit distribution, make sure you have the 32-bit compatibility package installed. I’m not sure if some distributions have them by default, or if you have to manually install them.

Please e-mail me regarding any bugs, comments, suggestions, etc at info@mygamecompany.com

Thanks for your help! I hope you enjoy the demo!

Illwinter Game Design announced that they are working on their new strategy game Conquest Of Elysium 3 that as with their previous games will also have a GNU/Linux client.

About
The game concept is of course based on our old game Conquest of Elysium II (which is now a freeware) , but apart from that most of the game has been completely remade. Maybe we’ll rename it too.

If you have played and enjoyed Dominions 3 previously then you will be pleased to know that this game also focuses on many different monsters, special abilities and spells. It is still a turn based strategy game, but it is much quicker and less complicated than Dominions.

Here is a list of some features that are available in CoE 3.
* Many monsters and many special abilities. Some examples right below.
* Assassins that make an assassination attack before combat starts.
* Catapults and Hill Giants that can throw boulders during sieges.
* Immortal Liches and Vampires.
* Exploding phoenixes (and they are immortal too).
* And many many more monsters….
* New weapon system, attacks are divided into pierce, slash or blunt damage (magic attacks have other types too). Skeletons are difficult to injure with piercing weapons and you should preferably use slashing weapons against treemen, etc.
* Hotseat and network support for multiplayer games.
* Random maps.
* Random events.
* 16 different classes to choose from. And they are quite different from each other, both in what resources they need and what kind of rituals or special abilities they have.
* Spell system with currently 42 magic paths.
* Magic items.
* Permanent battle afflictions.
* Horrors.
* Stealth and invisibility. Scouts needed to detect stealthy troops, something better (a star spawn or a beast bat will work) needed to detect the invisible ones. There are shape changers too.

Frankly I wasn’t sure LGN would get to this point, but after several domain and hosting changes we survived 3 years today !
LGN tried to put a few contests over the years but unfortunately they failed.
Maybe I should setup something easier next time…
I’ve been very open regarding LGN and as with last time I’ll publish the stats for those who interested.
Despite all the visitors I have, I make ZERO $ on this website, and the hosting is generously provided for free by Linux Game Database (Thanks again Pheonton) – otherwise I’ve been forced to use the good old but limited wordpress.com ;)

Please note that those stats are only for the last year ( 2010-08-17 – 2011-08-15) as I’ve moved to a new host and domain (Linux Game Database) , so without farther delay, here are the stats :

The basic graph shows the visits over 13 months, as you see we had good months and bad months (after the company I worked for got bankrupted and I got fired, I wasn’t in the mood to post much so the visitors came much less, but I’ve found a new job now).

Here is the graph with more detail (and numbers) :

Overall LGN had 132,858 views this year, which is a 23,975 increase over last year !
The most popular page was as usual the “main LGN page”, then “Trine And Trine 2 Are Coming To GNU/Linux !” and the third place was “Unity GNU/Linux Exporter In Development !” – the forth and fifth pages were the “Upcoming GNU/Linux games !” and “Recently Released”.
This is a bug change as the last two pages were always visible and updated every few months, while the others were “regular” news articles.

Those are the websites I own big thanks for referring to LGN, and the biggest of them all was reddit.com which I begun to update with LGN’s new posts less then a year ago.
The wikipedia article “List_of_adult_video_games” is still bringing new visitors to LGN.
Also about 1-2 months ago there was a strange day in which I had many referrers from gayclubsociety.com website which is very strange because I’m straight and my website is about Linux Gaming – a friend of mine suggested that they misspelled it as “Linux GAYming” ;)
So thank you for redirecting to LGN !

This is the time to say a HUGE THANK YOU to LGN’s biggest single news contributor Grzegorz Budny who continues to send me great news !
For his great support I bought him the GNU/Linux game of his choice – Runes of Avalon 2.

And off course THANK YOU ALL, the readers, the most important part of any website, without you LGN is useless – I hope you will keep enjoying the website as long as it exists
