Getting to relive those memories again on an eerily familiar looking console is just awesome. Some of the old classic games will be back with this new console along with dozens of new offerings.

Awesome Game – Warzone 2100 Resurrection – for Linux

I must admit that I have not played any kind of computer games that seriously for a while. Atleast since I sold my Sony PS2 a few years back and got back into the real corporate world. But Warzone 2100 has completely changed that for me. This game is something special. It seems I cant get enough of it since I downloaded it last night to my Ubuntu Linux laptop. I was literally glued to the screen for well over 6 hours straight.

The official story line for this awesome strategy game is that we build and control a military force to retake the world for mankind which was, incidentally, destroyed by Nuclear Missiles. We not only design our own forces but build them and have to run campaigns in a certain time to win. Since its a strategy game, expect to be glued to your monitors for a few hours straight. And for serious games, expect a whole weekend if not more.

The graphics are awesome as compared to many other games available on Linux. It is full 3D with wonderful sound. The maps are editable and we can create our own if we want. And for super gamers among us, we can use the Source Code provided to change the game as we please.

The game is also available for Mac and Windows platform and full source code can also be downloaded for our favorite platform. For those with Ubuntu Synaptics Package can download it directly without any glitches.

The game was created by Pumpkin Studios and published by Eidos Interactive and is currently developed by Warzone 2100 Resurrection Project team.
