I’ve also had a little “chat” with Josiah Pisciotta from Chronic Logic about the other games on their website that don’t have a GNU/Linux clients :

LGN: I’ve noticed that the Bridge Construction Set has a native GNU/Linux client, but it’s sequel “Bridge It” doesn’t support GNU/Linux nor MacOS … why have you decided to use an engine that isn’t easily ported to GNU/Linux and MacOS ?
Is there any chance for “Bridge it” “Kingdom Elemental” and “Trash” to be ported to GNU/Linux ?

Josiah Pisciotta :All those games were developed with other developers who did not use engines that support Linux so there is very little chance of those games having a Linux version. However we always try and take that into account when selecting which technology we use for development in house.

LGN :It’s a shame really…
We don’t have many high quality cRPG’s and Strategy games on Linux.
We could really use more games.
BTW, except Micro-Warrior, which other games are in development ?

Josiah Pisciotta :We are involved with a bunch of other games which are in development, Pontifex III, Golf?, working on a major update to Zatikon along with a new game, Zatikon : Inquisitions, and three other games that are early in development.

So the future seems bright for Chronic Logic and for the GNU/Linux gaming, and if you are a fan of Zatikon like me – there is a lot to expect.
And Zatikon also has a Facebook app so you can play it from anywhere !.

Chronic logic the developers of Gishand other GNU/Linux games, are working on 2 additional add-ons to Zatikon

Chronic logic have an interesting idea; they released a full tactical TBS game named Zatikon for free (it wasn’t always free) and only sell the add-ons which add more units and strategies.
On top of that they also made a facebook version of Zatikon which is also free.
