Games When I decided to take on this article I thought it would be easy. Grab a few quotes from some developers, re-hash WINE support, check out the latest version of Battle for Wesnoth... Simple stuff.

Android & OpenGL games

Interesting interview with the producers of the Amnesia game on how Linux and Mac ports save a game studio.

The Desura client for Linux might go open sources

Dont know if Android counts.The quality of games is improving fast (example some quad core mobile gpu's is said to reach PS3 quality next year.

The hardware is also relatively cheap (Tegra's 3 going for between $15-$25 apparantly and Omap 4 between $12-$14.)

Android's 3D graphics library is OpenGL ES 2.0 based so this could only benefit Linux ports?
