Thinking of putting Ubuntu on my second laptop, for Mono etc.

Are there any War and/or strategy games that work for Linux? I don't mean WINE
but native apps. Even better if someone sells them electronically.

Thanks in advance.

Seems Dominions3 exists for Linux. Maybe this is my chance to try this out :).

Anyone here tried it on Linux?

I dream of the day when Linux games are as common as Windows based games.

While I dual boot xp and linux since several years (Job, Blender 3D, Graphics Inkskape&Gimp and Programming only on Linux, XP for my gaming needs & Video editing) recently I often boot Ubuntu for gaming as well. I did opt for the 64 bit release of the upcoming 8.04 Ubuntu Release (don't use it yet if you are new to linux and wait for the official release) and I like it very much.

Free Software:
Battle for Wesnoth is an excellent 2d Strategy Game. (Windows binary also available)
I also enjoy, although no strategy or war, recently the 1.0.0. FlightGear flight simulator. I also own FSX and XPlane8, while FlightGear is no match for the graphics yet (a interesting forest patch is in the row) I enjoy several of its features and I really prefer to develop free scenery for a free programm.

Proprietary Software:
The excellent Domininos 3 (Dont let the graphics fool you, this is defenitly the king of the kings fantasy strategy turn based multiplayer game) works perfectly on Linux.

Motomouse

Here is a list of
Linux Strategy Games based on SDL lib.
(libsdl.org)

SDL is the toolkit used by Battle for Wesnoth and Dominions 3 to make it cross-platform. I played Dom 3 successfully on Mac OS X. Should be no problem under Linux. And it is a f.ing good game as well. Try the demo.

For more experimental stuff : PyGame Strategy Page, games in Python.

I hope this helps,

JeF.
