Linux Video of the Week: Limit Theory Game Developer Switches to Linux

Game developer Josh Parnell has released the latest development update on his open-world space simulation and strategy game, Limit Theory. While the graphics are beautiful, this release is particularly notable because Parnell has switched to developing on the native Linux client version from Windows (which he called “just annoying.”)

Limit Theory is Kickstarter-funded as of December 2012 and has a planned release date for early 2014. When it's finished, players will be able to explore space, prospect for and mine asteroids, command a fleet of star ships, and more.

The biggest issue with Ubuntu is the package manager. The fact that somebody has had to go to the effort to create the Ubuntu After Install application shows there is a problem. Why can't Ubuntu or one of these derivatives grasp the bull by the horns and come up with a solution. People like to use Chrome yet all we get is Firefox or some basic equivalent. Chrome works with everything. It is by far the best browser and I don't want to settle for second best. If you don't want to include it as part of the main package manager add a simple tool for installing this and many other applications including Steam. On the whole though the distribution looks good and is simple to use and I do recommend it for the Everyday Linux User. Read more
