The Linux Game Tome is back up!

Some progress has been made on the Linux Game Publishing, Tux Games, and Happy Penguin downtime. The Linux Game Tome is now back in action!

Thanks for the good news, posted on LGN.
Hope they recover swiftly.

They are months behind now though.

A lot of people seemed to miss them so i guess it's good it's back.

Hey, a little competition gives you more incentive to make GoL even better. ;)

Re: The Linux Game Tome is back up!

I don't see it as a competition - we are on the same side here.
My goal was never to become the biggest website, or game database, or forums or FOSS games news - that's what other websites for.
So Happypenguin usually writes about updates and new releases of all Linux native games.
LGN and GOL don't mention every little update.
Other websites do different things (while still some websites do the same things for some reason - like there are a few websites with game databases - why ? it's such a major time waster, to replicated every game that was mentioned on other databases and add more ... there are thousands of native games for Linux).

Anyways, we are all on the same side here - otherwise I would have danced when they went offline and wouldn't mention them going online ;)

Now if we could only get more AAA developers to pull their heads out of the grounds and be convinced of that as well. :roll:

So Maxim your saying the GOL database is a time waster?

I certainly don't think so.

Depends on the purpose...
If your purpose is to have the biggest database of GNU/Linux native games - then it will take you months do to so.
But if you want to make the most unique database with "never before seen games" then you are on the right track imo.

Re: The Linux Game Tome is back up!

The purpose is of my database is a mixture of everything - one day to have a massive amount of games which will include titles hopefully not many people know about.

I know building a big database takes a long time - time is never an issue.
