Behind it's interface with simple graphics and poor sound you can find and endless challenge where every game is different. It has a huge technology tree, huge maps and a huge amount of options to build your empire and interact with your opponents. I had never spent so much time in a single battle before.

2014-04-0601:21:37nullzero(though a user said steam's System Shock 2 linux port is wine based... can anyone confirm?)
2014-04-0610:31:45Curly BraceHadn't tested myself, but I've also heard from people around that its wine based. Not sure which approach exactly they do use though - either simply wrapping binary inside wine launcher, or compiling sources against winelibs
2014-04-0610:33:48Curly BraceI assume people who own the game can play around with obdump to see what's inside game binary
2014-04-0610:34:47Curly BraceAnyway, System Shock 2 is a brilliant thing and its good to see it "offically" supported on Linux, even with a help of some red wine
2014-04-0621:04:05nullzeroYep, SS2 was one of my favorites... even got it last year in GOG but had trouble playing in wine... maybe its time to try again :) (also played it with the OST of the horror sci-fi Event Horizon in the background for a real fear mode)
2014-04-1007:13:14luojie-duneA game bulid upon wine lib shall be considered a Linux game too, so wine port is OK.
2014-04-1218:55:38nullzerohmm... When I'm submitting a new game and filling in the details, If I put screenshots above the 512 Kb limit for the second time, the game is automatically submitted, even if I don't click save. Happened twice!
2014-04-1318:27:49sixsixfivenullzero< you can uplaod a little more eg 540kb works too
2014-04-1622:34:40nullzeroSaw there is now a resize terminal command in the game screenshots area. Nice! ^_^
