Tiny Cthulhu trailer available

Ben Crispin – the developer of Tiny Cthulhu – has informed us that a trailer for this new 3D game is available.

*A teacher at the notoriously underfunded Miskatonic University Daycare
Centre sends her charges off to sleep with a story from the Necronomicon
(it was the only book she could find in the library that had pictures…)
Through her not-quite-carefully-edited-enough account, we follow the dread
Tiny Cthulhu on his travels through mind-blasting vortexes of madness and
adorableness on his way to rain inevitable and cuddly doom on a blissfully
unsuspecting humanity.
…Sleep well, kids…*

Are you personally offended by the astonishing lack of 3D Platforming
titles for PC/Mac/Linux?
Do you further feel that there’s simply not enough Eldritch Abomination in
your life?

Well, in that incredibly unlikely case, you’ll probably be overjoyed to
hear that THEORY32 has just launched an Indiegogo fundraiser for Tiny
Cthulhu – its an upcoming game of adorable Lovecraftian mega-horror.

The page can be found at:

http://www.indiegogo.com/tinycthulhu

Donation perks include having your house made into a stomp-able model and
placed in Cthulhu’s path during the ‘Modern Earth’-set finale, having a
picture of your face appear in the ‘Lost and Hidden Shrine to Those Horrors
That It Is Better To Die Than To Glimpse… Even For A Second…’ easter
egg, and providing screams and/or last words for the destruction of a
building.

High-res screenshots, logos, more info, and etc. can be found at the
Development Blog here:

Thankyou,
Ben Crispin.)

linuX-gamers.net on the way back to the roots

Hello linuX-gamers,

as you may know linuX-gamers.net started as a gaming community page and developed into one of the main news resources about linuX games and gaming on a linuX operating system.

As playing under linuX has become sort of “mainstream” and the flow of real news on linuX-gamers.net is not really present I plan to revert this page back to a Multi-Gaming page and I would like to get your input.

My idea was to make the project as open as possible so when you already have a group of people that play under linuX you could just join linuX-gamers.net and unite with other groups under one hood.

A longterm goal is to organize linuX-LAN-Parties again and to be present on the important exhibitions.

Feel free to comment and discuss.

Sincerly
