New Savage2 community site

Homepage

Today a new community page opened the gates for visitors. PlaySavage2.com aims to be the main place to gather as Savage2-community, to form groups and clans and to organize all kind of events. At the moment it integrates the social part, a different kind of ladder system and a guides-section. And it was already announced that there is more to come. All areas are labeled beta but it already shows that this page is gonna be VERY important for Savage2 – a tortured soul. When you know facebook you know how to do stuff on playsavage2.com as well – so go to www.PlaySavage2.com right now and login with your Savage2 account-details to join the community.

Site update

During Linuxtag at Berlin I have integrated a new forum for discussions about our live dvd and general issues.
In the next time a wiki will also be integrated to incorporate a games list – this is something we are asked on every public fair we attend.
