Cool Free Games compendium


I've set up a compendium and commentary on Free games. It's basically a list of good open source games (current and upcoming) and a regular blog about them. Hopefully it'll be useful and/or interesting to Linux gamers old and new alike.

http://freegamer.blogspot.com

Feedback, good and bad, is appreciated.

Really nice Blog. If updated as it has been so far I think it can become a reference in this matter.
The author has a good form of writing and there's a lot os links and references to free games.

Worth a visit.

Lots of updates to the list already as well as more (hopefully interesting) commentary.

I'm finding maintianing this thing to be addictive. It's sapping my productivity!

Grab a couple of writers then. I'm sure you'll get some volunteers and if you select carefully you could really get a great site going. Get some massive traffic, a nice domain, place a few select ads on it for revenue and you could have a nice confy home job as a writer

Perhaps in a while I might see if people want to contribute reviews of their favourite Free games.

Great job on your blog. It is a strong coherent memorial for those who spent their lives programming those games.

It also is a criticizes some games too I notice--perhaps you should only limit that to something others can relatively agree with.

It's a blog and I have opinions and I will express them. Feel free to disagree with them in the comments. Just because open source games are volunteer driven does not mean they are above critique.

I made a major update to the site. New graphics, reorganised, new content, and more frequent [near-daily] commentary.

The new blog looks awesome Charlie. Hero of Allacrost should have a new demo out within the next week or two; we're getting really close now, so keep your eye out for it. I think its going to make a big impression on people. I'll try to remember to shoot you an e-mail when the release happens so you can check it out and hopefully write a word or two about it.
