Comment Rift IS cross-platform, VO will get there. (Score 5, Informative) 48 48

I'm not sure how this became confused, but as I wrote on our newspost page: the Oculus Rift itself does support Mac and Linux, we just haven't had a chance to roll out the support on those platforms yet. To elaborate, Windows was the initial testing target, internally, and we made a number of Rift-specific changes to our DirectX renderer during the process. It'll take us some time to back-port these changes over to our OpenGL renderer, along with some of the other auto-detection features and things we've implemented. Linux and Mac will be supported.

Submission + - Linux-supporting MMORPG adds Free To Play goal to Kickstarter->

Incarnate-VO writes: After a lot of feedback and commentary from the 'net, long-running space MMORPG Vendetta Online has added a goal for a possible Free-to-Play tier to their existing Kickstarter. The game has supported Linux, Mac and Windows since 2004 using a classical subscription model, but is now considering evolving to a hybrid system that prevents any "Pay to Win" advantages versus subscribed players.

Submission + - Vendetta Online adds "Dynamic Warfare" gam 1 1

Incarnate-VO writes: With the Friday night release, Linux-friendly space MMO Vendetta Online has launched Dynamic Warfare: a new long-term battle and large-scale warfare mechanic designed to permit factional conquest of geographical areas. In this first-generation implementation, players and NPCs of the Itani and Serco Nations vie for weekly control of 177 sectors within a critical solar system (Deneb). Several different battles may be running concurrently at any time, with a variety of different battle scales ranging from epic conflicts of capship fleets to small fighter-only engagements. The diversity of scale allows both varied gameplay styles and accessibility to players on older computing hardware.

Woops, I missed the rest of his post :).

And no, we have no plans for an Amiga port, heheh (although, odd fact, there was actually a native BeOS client at one point, back in the R4/4.5 era. It was also built on Irix at a few points in the late 90s). We currently maintain about as many ports as we can sanely manage.
