Gunbound for Linux


I would love to see Gunbound on Linux. Its very similar to Worms and it is played online. A worms-like game would be a nice substitute but it wouldn't be the same because it wouldn't have the online community feeling that gunbound has.

I've tried this game on WINE and it doesn't work. According to some of the posts on their website forum many other people would like to see a Linux version of Gunbound also.

Maybe if enough users show interest, an official port would be made.

Why does anyone want Halo on Linux? Halo sucks for 2 reasons:

A) It just plain sucks, it gets boring after half an hour. I played it once for that long and have never wanted to play it again, even though first person shooters are the only games I play.

B) Its made (published) by MICROSOFT!!!!!!!!! This means you are shelling over money to the evil empire

Plus, I don't want anything so much as breathed on by M$ to touch my Linux installation with a 100 ft pole

A good 3D race game like Need For Speed or Grand Prix IV.

I find gracer unfinished and racer (google "racer"+"linux") too inassessable and simulation-like

I love MMORPGs and spend most of my time playing one. Would be great if Blizzard ports their upcoming World of Warcraft for Linux.
