Well someone mentioned a cross-compiler that can make win32 apps. I say make win32 apps, and make sure they work in Wine. That way they'll work in both Windows & Linux.

An interpreted script language like python, using GL calls instead of direct X might be portable. You might want to look at the Blender program. It is free and has a graphics engine. It is available on Windows, PPC, Apple and Linux platforms. ( Plus you can do your 3-d modeling with it. ) You could write a program in Kylix and easily port it to Delphi. Writing a computer game is a big project. 3d sculpting, real-time animation, producing the music and sound effects. Are you up to it?
