Gaming on GNU/Linux: Ryzom MMORPG Goes Native!

by peterb Contributions Published on Nov 30, 2010 12:53 PM

In May of this year we celebrated the freeing of the massively-multiplayer online science-fantasy role playing game, Ryzom, under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License (GNU AGPLv3).

Included with the software release were the high quality artistic works including 3D objects, animation tracks, particle effects and thousands of textures, licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share-Alike (CC BY-SA).

These unique assets will make the creation of new games easier for all free software developers.

Since then, the developer community around Ryzom has been busy, and today they have announced their release of the official native GNU/Linux client, and a fun competition to find seven relevant GNU/Linux artifacts hidden throughout the game. Check out their announcement.
