Forum topic: Ubuntu Software Centre Games
First i wanted to answer yes why not, we have steam witch only supports a single version of Ubuntu (12.04) but after checking out the software center i would rather say no. Steam can be installed on other distributions with sometime less or more hassle but not so much for games that are released only for the software center.
The software center is a good place to find those games for users of Ubuntu, I see no reason for us to list games with such a specific requirement.
But this discussion is new for me (i don't have Ubuntu) and i would like to hear more opinions.
Forum topic: I can't seem to find the source
i don't think its opensource.
This page lists it as freeware http://roguebasin.roguelikedevelopment.org/index.php?title=Return_to_the...
Some of the art is CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 but not all https://sites.google.com/site/rttdod/credits
-> i'll change the category.

Forum topic: EL License
Forum topic: Unlike current EL OL does not run on my machine
I had a different problem (same as this guy) that wouldn't let me start Other Life. I used the Eternal Lands client (replaced the *.bin with the one from EL package) and it worked. You might want to try that as a workaround.
Forum topic: try it now
I have been playing Other-Life for almost a month, I must say, I am enjoying it. I love the combat system better than EL, and it doesn't take you years to master in any skills like a lot of other games. I am almost Attack and Defense level 40, and soon, I can even roam the PK maps safely. My potion skill is fair also.
The X-Attribute System is just WONDERFUL, you can customize your character so much better than the other games I have played. A player 2 weeks old could have 1200 carry capacity if they wanted! They can have 200 health, or massive defense and/or attack power. It's just PHENOMENAL!
As a new player, it may be hard to play if you joined the game during a weekend because you are pretty much limited to the 1st map. After 4 days of leveling up though, you should be able to participate in the game's invasion events. And by your second invasion, if you had focused on combat, you should start getting great rewards and exp in the invasions.
Forum topic: Urban Terror is going down
I wanted to suggest http://www.lgdb.org/game/assaultcube but their website is currently unreachable so i'm not sure about the game status ether. I just added http://www.lgdb.org/game/assaultcube_reloaded and it is an alternative and installation easy. If you feel a break from deathmatch is in order i would recommend http://www.lgdb.org/game/americas_army_25 its objective oriented gameplay is engaging and unique. And there are always full servers.
