Videogames are usually seen as the little black duck in the open source family. They can’t stand the comparison with AAA titles, they develop at a very slow pace, they are ugly, you-name-it…
I think it could be interesting to have the point of view of people who stand by for open source games, namely Charles Goodwin of FreeGamer blog and/or Bart Kelsey, admin of the OpenGameArt community website.
Topics that could be interesting to discuss about:
- With Steam and other major titles finally arriving on Linux, is it the death of open source games?
- Open source games are usually cool but ugly, is it because the philosophy of open source/creative commons is not understood by artists?
- Modding of commercial games is very popular, is it something that also happens for open source games?
What do you think, people of Bad Voltage?
