Freespace 1&2 heading to Desura!

By - | Views: 6,619
On the Desura forum Protektor the head of Linux Gaming at Desura announced this little juicy tidbit;

QuoteI thought I would mention that we have a distribution license for Freespace 1 & 2. We have a few questions for Interplay and we are waiting to hear back from them.


Freespace 1 & 2 are two of my all time favourite games and are easily two of the best space piloting shooters ever made.

I can't say I know how it will all turn out (based on the quote, it sounds like things are still being ironed out), but look at the name of the forum thread in which the quote was posted.

The freespace engine is already open source so hopefully it will be native using the freespace open project.
