Recently I’ve spoken with Krešimir Špes from Cateia Games about their GNU/Linux support.
More then a year ago I’ve posted about the puzzle adventure game “The Legend of Crystal Valley”, a GNU/Linux client was promised but due to major difficulties in porting the old engine to GNU/Linux it’s most likely not going to happen (the MacOS client barely made it) .
But since then Cateia Games developed a new engine which games can be easily ported to GNU/Linux.
The first game to reach our beloved OS is Kaptain Brawe, afterwards the strategy game “Medieval Battlefields” and the puzzle adventure games , “Tales from the Dragon Mountain: The Strix” and “Family Secrets: Ghosthunters” will follow.

Here are some screenshots from those games
