Introversion the makers of Linux games Darwinia and Defcon have announced that there long time in development game Subversion is suspended announced via their blog

QuoteAround June last year, we pushed ourselves as hard as we could and made a playable slice of the game, and demonstrated it publicly at the World Of Love conference in London. The demo went well, but was heavily scripted. Internally we had come to realise that somewhere along the 6 years of part-time development, we had lost our way. We couldn’t even remember what sort of game it was supposed to be anymore. We’d ended up with a game that looked and sounded brilliant, classic Introversion with its blue wireframe and sinister faceless characters. But there was a massive gaping hole where you would normally see a “core game”. We’d tried and tried to fill that hole with ambitious tech and experimental systems, but you couldn’t escape it.

However Rock Paper Shotgun has reported that Introversion have said they are working on a new game Prison Architect, I wonder if this will support linux?

One of the articles you linked me to mentioned there will be a port :)

I can see how that would be easy to do (losing your way) when you're working on a project part-time for that long. It's been difficult enough to stay focused on Dirk 2 for 3 years. I've had to take some breaks along the way to work on other smaller game projects, and come back to it fresh.

Any news of a[URL='https://encrypted.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=multiwuinia&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCgQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.introversion.co.uk%2Fmultiwinia%2F&ei=rGCjTuHDIISZhQefzJHDBA&usg=AFQjCNHGt1fwZD0fDdIqdv-LfggbjnCVeQ&sig2=VfwhXNd0yXW7RTSdNQPJdQ&cad=rja'] Multiwinia[/URL]!? port or real free source or Darwinia I think the Mac version is a couple of revisions behind and Linux a couple of versions behind that charging £0 is a little strange. What about releasing [URL='http://www.gamingonlinux.com/index.php?threads/subversion-no-more.610/']Subversion[/URL] under an open source version now and seeing what the community comes up with. I'd love to see an early product of this scale under copyleft license for code and a restrictive CC license for the assets.

If it's meant to be an entertaining prison then OS X is the obvious choice. ;)

Captcha: What operating system do we cover?

Doesn't accept GNU/Linux? You must hate freedom. :D

Unfortunately, Introversion is not the Linux game company it was back in the days.

They have said in one article their will be a Linux version of Prison Architect.

Also i don't hate freedom but most people use the shorter quicker version...hint: Linux hehe ;)
With that in mind the captcha has been updated to allow that answer :)
