The developers have managed to raise enough funds on Kickstarter
Leadwerks, a tool designed for Linux games development, has managed to raise enough money on Kickstarter in order to secure a December release.Ever since Steam arrived on the Linux platform, a lot of games have been ported successfully. A group of developers wants to move this process on the Linux platform.
“Leadwerks is a visual tool for building any kind of 3D game, including dungeon crawlers, first-person shooters, and side-scrollers.”
“We want to put the game development process on Linux, so you can build and play games, without ever leaving the Linux operating system. We have a complete visual editor that handles all aspects of the game development process, and we’re porting it to run natively on Linux,” reads the announcement on Kickstarter.
The project is done by a company called Leadwerks Software and, according to its developers, it runs on GTK and feels native on the Linux platfrom.
The Leadwerks for Linux game engine is scheduled for release in December 2013.
