I'm a game developer doing a little this and that, not very fast since I do everything all by myself and I'm just having so much fun developing it. I also kinda feel reluctant to release it because of that.
Have I got your attention now? Ok Good!
Calling all Indie-devs, I can't stress this enough! Time and time again I've seen games and alphas released for Linux and bugs being due to Linux being Case-sensitive.
SO if you want to release a game for Linux in the long run, make sure you are all on the same page. Keep uppercases and lowercases the same. If you have a list of models in a script or similar, make sure the graphical artists know what naming convention they should use, file-ending as well!
example: /DATA/MODELS/SlowDog.blend in a path-script should be /DATA/MODELS/SlowDog.blend in the file manager as well!
I repeat, Linux is Case-Sensitive!
In today's game industry, we don't see a lot diverse players. They all zombie away to the nearest Call of Duty because this and that friend has it and it's fun because of this and that. But to me those games are less deserving. Not because they are not fun, but because they in reality don't bring anything new to the table...
Us gamers should be more picky about what we play, or try something new for once. I mean Battlefield 3 and COD MW3 are all the same now. Only thing the devs spend time on seems to be graphics and a storyline written by some 12 year old. Although, Battlefield 3 should learn something from Call of Duty MW3. Their animation system is helluva lot better.
Now, the game I myself is looking forward to is Aliens: Colonial Marines, not only because of my insane liking towards the Alien universe and creepy corridors of death and despair. But because the developers of the game is taking heed to what the Gamers actually want. So we'll see if they manage to destroy the Atmosphere with too much Comical Relief or Consolidized gameplay because I'm getting this on the PC. Anyways, this was just a test-blog, haters are welcome. And we love Indie developers, they make an effort. Cheers!
