If you’re a fan of 4X strategy games, then you will have probably heard of Master of Orion. Honestly, Master of Orion 2 is one of my all time favourite games, and now I can play it without any messing around on Linux.
They use DOSBox, but don’t you dare turn your nose up at it. I spent I don’t know how many months of my life playing MOO 2, and I will be again now thanks to GOG.
I tested out MOO 2, and like with the recently released Star Trek games for Linux, they install without an issue, and everything is setup for you ready to rock. I am extremely happy with this.
Sounds like it was an instant purchase from our GOL Cast specialist Samsai too!
