Project Fedora
« on: May 17, 2012, 04:22:54 PM »
Well, since I saw a Diablo 3 thread out there, I figured I would throw in a plug for Project Fedora.

Calling all Adventure Gamers out there:  Project Fedora (texmurphy.com) is now live!  The Tex Murphy games were sci-fi/detective adventure games, and left with a huge cliffhanger about 15 years ago.  If you like adventure games, you should check out the old games over at gog.com.  If you like Tex, then you should consider offering a bit over on kickstarter to help fund the reboot of the series.

If you want names... Chris Jones (co-founder of Access SW), and Aaron Connors (sr. developer at EA) are the founders of Tex.  They've cast people like James Earl Jones in their games, and they do a great job.

Thanks for listening to the plug, all.

Sorry.  My hat is a custom-made grey derby.  Which is much more fun than a fedora!

Slackware?

my first linux box was a slackware 1996 ish.  I had to make rootdisk and bootdisk floppies.  times sure have changed.  My house has been microsoft free since 2001.  freebsd, kubuntu and lubuntu makeup our household computing environments.

I like gnome- KDE was too "windowish". Free BSD is pretty awesome. But I broke down and bought and Xbox. Funny how it "updated" itself without my hooking it into a network. :-\

I still plan to, someday, stop at the Stetson factory in St. Joe, MO and have a business man's fedora custom fit.  I used to wear a fedora to work all the time, long before they came back in style with the kiddies.  I can't get one now because it would clash with my anti-current-style style, I guess.

My first thought on the title of this thread was the old Red Hat Desktop Linux version too.  So my fellow geeks, you are not alone.  8^)

To swing back on-topic (I know, right?) - the Tex Avery games were great.

One thing I love about the rise of Kickstarter is the old games that are making a come back thanks to it. For instance, Wasteland (the classic post nuclear war RPG - the spiritual father to the Fallout series) was the subject of a kickstarter not too long ago and where they had a basic goal of $900k to make the game, they ended up raising just over $3.0 million when you add in their paypal donations. (which means all sorts of goodies like an expanded world, more art, more quests, user mod tools, etc.) http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/wasteland-2

I wasted hours upon hours playing the original game and the fallouts, so I'm a happy camper.
