STAR WARS: DARK FORCES, Now On Linux Thanks To GOG

Quoting: oldrocker99Purchasing NWN Diamond from GOG and installing the Linux client is much harder than installing it from the DVD (I've done both). It would be terrific if GOG would make the Linux-client NWN available, either as the usual tar.gz file or as a .deb (Red Hat derivative users can use alias the same way Debian derivative users do). It would make one of the very first (if not the first) commercial games to support Linux easily installable by we (superior OS :D ) Linux users.

I fear your nickname tells your age because it was not the first commercial game by far (Loki Software?). The first was a decade earlier, either SimCity or DOOM (before the source ports), I have not found out which was released for Linux first yet.

Except for those using ScummVM instead of DOSBox. :-P
