We now have the slides from the Advanced Linux Game Programming session from Leszek Godlewski at GDC Europe (a spin-off of Gamescom).

Leszek Godlewski is the chap who ported Painkiller Hell & Damnation, as well as Deadfall Adventures before joining Nordic Games where he's now working on Darksiders.


Lots of information there folks packed into a 98 page presentation. It's really great to see more developers talk about Linux like this, and I hope as Linux gaming grows that there are more again.

It's always important to have as a reference to show to other game developers, and especially at a big gaming conference like this to keep Linux firmly placed into the minds of game developers. Article taken from

I have to say I am a big fan of the work Leszek is doing and I recommend people follow him on twitter @TheIneQuation for an insight into a porting devs work.

I also stand outside his house stroking a peach under a hankey...mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Great to see some talks about this. Hopefully devs at the gaming companies see this.

Personally, I hate SlideShare. Their viewer is crap, and they require an account to download the slides (and then they limit how many you can download, so discourage account sharing). I created a throw-away account for that reason some time ago.

And I took the liberty of uploading the Slides (OpenDocument presentation) here, now:
