Looking for the name of an old linux game

Post by computerwhiz1 »

Myabe 5 or so years ago I was playing around with some linux distrovutions, i'm fairly sure it was ubuntu and I can remember playing a game. It was 2D and the graphics weren't anything to write home about. That being said, I remember the game was sort of RPG/simulation oriented and it involved managing some sort of resource among colonies. I think it might have been power or water or both. It seems like the game was based on setting up power stations and relays and substations and what not inorder to properly power your collection of colonies. I looked through the repository under the games category using synaptic, and I could not find anything there. I was wondering if anyone on here could help me remember the name to this game as I have no clue what it was called, and googling it has yeilded no results. Thanks in advance.

I just looked at those websites, and while I foudn some other neat games while I was looking around, I didn't find the game I was thinking of. Seems like when I originally found it, I just saw it in synaptic under ubuntu.

Your descripton reminds me of this but not a perfect match. http://www.addictinggames.com/strategy- ... cegame.jsp

According to Keith Chuvala, who manages Space Operations Computing for NASA, "We migrated key functions from Windows to Linux because we needed an operating system that was stable and reliable-one that would give us in-house control.

Thats not it either, but either way, the game you linked to is quite fun.
