It hasn't been that long ago that we brought you news of 2d boy World of Goo and the Frictional Games trilogy Penumbra. Since then, things have been pretty quiet on the Linux Game Front...at least to my ear, but then again, I'm not much of a gamer.
Sure, I've played all the repository shooters...bloody chunks flying and monsters galore. I have a short attention span...mostly because I suck at shooter games. I just don't play them often.
But every now and then, one game catches my eye.
For this post, that game is Caster.
Mike Smith is the Author of Caster and he has done a great job in bringing us a third person shooter that takes as much thinking as it does shooting. There is a comprehensive interview with Mike here so I can't add much to what he's already said, however I can tell you that Mike is offering this great game at 5 bucks a pop and get this...
Buy the game and get the updates free.
I'm having trouble finding the downside to that.
Our resident gamer, Mark Montgomery has given an entire weekend to Caster and offers his review below.
Help support the Indie guys that are writing for Linux...five bucks...I think we can do that. And As always, the first 5 people to post the news of Caster on a high-traffic Linux site will get a copy of the game.
OK Mark, what did you find?
