    Lightbulb Avaneya: A Science Fiction Game for Ubuntu



    Avaneya is a cerebral science fiction game for Ubuntu and other GNU/Linux users currently under active design.

    If you're interested in tracking it, there is a brief teaser and a subscription form for the low volume announcements mailing list.

    I think you should do more to explain what gameplay is like. The site doesn't make it clear at all.

    I also think you're seriously limiting your options by making it Linux/"GNU" only. Why not support Windows too? You can still make it Free.

    Hey t0p. You raise some good points. I've updated the page to give a few more hints that I think you are looking for.

    Also, the game will be written for GNU platforms. There will, however, be nothing the developers will do to deliberately hinder porting to non-free platforms if one wishes to do so. Since Avaneya relies on portable libraries, it shouldn't be unreasonably difficult for someone to do this.

    Strategy? Adventure? FPS? RPG?

    It kind of reminds me of a book i read. i think it was called Sirens from Titan. Also it reminds a bit of Martian chronicles only in this book the arival of humans disturbs the domestic people.

    Sounds to me, you pay for the game and the source codes are still available for download.

    Well, I know it's possible and it was done before (id software, or the Russian 3d space shooter) , but I wonder what he have in mind regarding this.
    There are many ways to do it.

    Also "It focuses on social justice, human rights, and sustainability amidst a Martian planetary setting in the future."
    And in the website (btw it's very, very slow for me) it's written that it's an RTS game...a bit confusing.
