“I’m starting with the man in the middle
I’m asking him to change his ways
Every packet is encrypted just a little
If you wanna make your network a safer place
Find the man in the middle and punch his face.”

PlayDeb

I have been busy for a while now developing a game, TankVille, as part of a research project. Although we are not a real game company, we spent a lot of time developing and polishing the game, so that it’s easier to attract people and convince them to play our game. Part of the development process of making a game, especially a multiplayer game where we have to continually keep the player satisfied, is thinking about how the game will evolve in the future.

I was looking for some inspirations to help me develop more ideas for TankVille when I came across PlayDeb. PlayDeb is an online portal which lists open-source games that one can easily install on Linux. Some of these games are really awesome! For instance, I discovered OpenTyrian, a classic shoot-em-up game that is extremely fun to play.

I love what PlayDeb brings to the table. It makes gaming on Linux more accessible, more mainstream and it helps Linux fans like myself enjoy PC gaming without sending a dime to Microsoft. The best part is, the source is available for a lot of these games, so I can study how they work and make them even better.

Linux world domination is close. I can’t wait!
