Today I am announcing a new game. An important game. An awesome game.
The idea is simple: You design and manage your own distribution of Linux and compete against other Distro’s.
Here’s a sample of just a few of the exciting things you’ll be doing while playing Linux Tycoon:
- Analyzing and selecting software packages.
- Fixing Bugs.
- Managing volunteers and paid staff.
- Keeping the total size (in MB) of your Distro at a reasonable level.
- And so much more!
Seriously though. It is fun. (It is a game, after all. You don’t actually fix bugs yourself.)
Basically take all the fun parts of building your own Linux Distro… and take out all the work. Bam! Instant entertainment!
Linux Tycoon will be released on Friday, March 30th (that’s this Friday) for $5.
DRM free and available for Linux, Windows and Mac. (That’s right… for the first time ever, Mac and Windows users can enter the world of Linux Distro-building! We’re building bridges here, people!)
Check back right here on Friday for the mega-launch (which is like a normal game launch only more “mega”) of Linux Tycoon.
In the mean-time, you can always check out my other game: “2299 : THE GAME“. Which is an old-school adventure game that really is nothing at all like Linux Tycoon.
Did I say Friday, March 30th? What I meant to say was “early in the morning on Monday, April 2nd”. :)
The game itself is play-tested and ready to go with the “Bryan Lunduke Stamp Of Approval”… except for 3 things that are kinda-sorta important:
- An icon.
- Tested packages and installers.
- And the web page.
Work, on all three, is underway… but won’t be ready in the next few hours. So Monday morning it is!
I recommend that everyone use your final “Linux Tycoon-free weekend” to do a Costco run and stock up on hot pockets, muffins and vitamin water.
