    Privateer: Gemini Gold

    [​IMG]

    "Back in 1993 Privateer was released as part of the Wing Commander series and became a great success in the gaming industry. Over 10 years later a small group of privateer enthusiasts reintroduced the game with a new graphic engine and real 3d spaceflight.

    As Grayson Burrows you inherited a small old scout class ship from your grandfather, to start over as a Privateer in a new and sparsely populated sector of the Confederation. Take your chance and become a pirate, merchant or bounty hunter upgrade your ship and experience the hard truth in a border sector where no one has anything to give away... "


    This game runs on Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X.

    Cave Story

    [​IMG]

    Slick, retro-style 8-bit graphics and music, an excellent soundtrack, silky controls, a great plotline and multiple endings. Something like a cross between Metroid, Megaman, and Symphony Of The Night, Cave Story is a modern classic you simply must play. Available in Japanese and English, with binaries for Windows and Mac. [strike]The Windows version also works absolutely flawlessly in WINE, so Linux users needn't feel left out.[/strike] There is now a fan-provided Linux port too; enjoy!

    I ran across Rusty Hearts as a freebie on Steam and have logged considerable time in the game. I really haven't played RPG or MMORPG's before, but it was easy to jump into this one. I believe the developer has several other games for free as well. I read about Torchlight before and it was recommended in Computer Power User (CPU).
