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.)
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.
