LugaruHD and Penumbra Overture open source!

By Liam Dawe,
Thanks to the success of the Humble Indie Bundle (which took in over a million $) the first two games have been Open Sourced. To play them you will still need to buy them, as I understand it the source of the game Engines are free, but not the game itself (so people can fork the engines to make new open-source games or improve the engines for the current games)...

Humble Indie Bundle - New game added!!

By Liam Dawe,
$610,901 later and 72,791 contributors (at time of writing) the Humble Indie Bundle is a MASSIVE success.

GOL Website Updates

By Liam Dawe,
Over the past 2 days I have done some more work for this website to get the feature set a little more complete. Added "lytebox" for screenshots, so when you click on a screenshot it is shown in a pop-up box. Added a "Quote" tag for news posts that will show up now like this: [quote]This is some quoted text![/quote] So when quoting from various news sources it will look a lot nicer (I can also use it wherever I like, for example interviews to quote the persons response) cool eh! Have added an "Unreleased" category to the directory which will list games with a confirmed Linux client, unlike other sites that list games that "may" have a Linux client and get peoples hopes up, I will only list games that you can be sure will have a Linux version available! Much more to come!
