Same games on the list as five years ago. Games and open source? Obviously not a business model.

  1. why does it need to be a business model to develop? If that were true there wouldn't be any GNU/Linux today.
  2. The list here on LQ is hardly representative. Go browse recent threads in the game section, go to steam, gog, itch.io, etc. etc., you will find.

Would I find open source games on gog or steam? Honestly, I don't know of any. And that's what I mean, open source gaming just doesn't seem to happen. Also, I don't agree that open source doesn't need a business model. Most successful open source software has got one. That's the way you pay developers. Be it mozilla foundation, blender foundation, redhat, qt, you name it. They have a business model that pays their salaries.

You very obviously didn't look.

I'm the one who asked for ToME to be added to the list, but there are two games with that name: the original Tales of Middle-Earth (which I nominated) and Tales of Maj'Eyal. Which do you mean?

It doesn't look like either has had a release in quite some time. "Tales of Middle Earth (ToME) 2" has been included in the past, resulting in ToME here. We'll remove for next year if there have been no recent releases of any.

Talking Where is Linux Air Combat


I hoped to see the first combat flight simulator for Linux called LAC (Linux Air Combat),
main developer being Robert Bosen.

It really feels like the real thing, and is big fun to play with it's multi player and Voice communication feature.

Well, that is it for me now, go and google "Linux Air Combat" and you are on your way to install and run the game !

Various Breakout versions/clones exist for Linux; one of the oldest (I guess) is lbreakout2 which is still gathering dust in Debian's repos.
The gameplay is fine, but the design, the lack of resolution...
Recently I discovered there's also LBreakoutHD - same game, better graphics.
For some reason that was game-changer for me, literally, I'm playing it quite a lot now, even made a theme
