Noordpoolse Vikingfans en Julielovers open u oren: de games Heavy Metal: FAKK2 en Rune worden begin dit jaar naar het "operating system" Linux geport. Aan de games zelf zal niks veranderd worden, het enige verschil is dat je ze nu vanuit je Pinguintje opstart.Rune, developed by Human Head Studios, was recently released for Windows and Mac OS to rave reviews. In this 3D heroic-fantasy action game, players assume the role of Ragnar the Viking, a young warrior about to enter into manhood and take his rightful place next to his father as a warrior of his village. The game showcases 43 single-player levels, multiplayer deathmatch and team deathmatch modes, 21 different multiplayer characters, and 5 multiplayer mutator modes, among other unique and titillating options.
