| software, even free software. They are fun and 
| are useful for making the free software user 
| happier.
| Michael will be demonstrating 100% free 
| software graphical games on 100% free software 
| system. There are lots of free software 
| graphical games. Unfortunately, many are not in 
| a suitable state of completion, are not good 
| games or require non-free video drivers. The 
| talk will show top quality free software 
| graphical games that work well on free video

Announcing Dread Moon Linux / Andromeda

,----[ Quote ]
| Team Allita, Inc. is today announcing the 
| Andromeda release of Dread Moon Linux along 
| with a support site at http://dreadmoon.com/.  
| Dread Moon is a remix of Ubuntu 9.04 that 
| provides a complete Linux development 
| environment for game and multi-media 
| developers.  This release is primarily intended 
| to eliminate a major roadblock to the 
| development of games and multimedia 
| applications under Linux that is a consequence 
| of the fact that many of the related software 
| libraries are not available as installable 
| packages.



Linux gaming: It’s not all bad

,----[ Quote ]
| The arrival of HoN and the announcement by
| id developer Timothee Besset that he will be
| overseeing a Linux build of the idTech 5 3D
| engine are both a huge boost for the Linux
| gaming community.


Machinarium - A Tasty Gaming Treat

,----[ Quote ]
| As the game opens you find yourself broken
| and discarded in the dump outside the city
| wall. Your first task is to reassemble
| yourself. Once that is accomplished, you can
| begin your quest to return to the city and
| your girlfriend. Your adventure unfolds as
| you solve puzzle-like problems in order to
| progress. For example, how do you trick the
| guard to lower the drawbridge? Or how might
| you enter a tunnel that remains sealed
| except for the few seconds when a train cart
| passes?

Linux Gaming Console Coming in November

,----[ Quote ]
| Envizions Computer Entertainment announced recently that the Linux-based EVO
| gaming console will be available for sale November 18.
| There have been dedicated gaming consoles that are able to run Linux, namely
| the PS3. In these cases, Linux made the console function more as a home
| computer than a gaming rig. The EVO system uses Linux to power the games.
