[edit] Summary

The Fedora Games spin offers a perfect show-case of the best games available in Fedora. The included games span several genres, from first person shooters to real-time and turn based strategy games to puzzle games. Not all the games available in Fedora are included on this spin, but trying out this spin will give you a fair impression of Fedora's abilities to run great games.

This is a great spin to hand out events where there will be people interested in test driving Fedora to see what it is like.

This spin includes a number of popular games including Battle for Wesnoth, FreeCiv, Scorched 3D, SuperTuxKart and Nethack.

[edit] Detailed Description

  • The spin is based off the XFCE desktop spin (minus wine). There is not room on a DVD for all of the games in Fedora. The intention is to try to include the best games from various genres. Included games should be playable without third party downloads. For some very large games or games that can use downloaded data, just a demo version might be included.

[edit] Benefit to Fedora

I think a games spin is more likely to get people to try it out than most other spins. As such it makes it a nice candidate for being handed out at events focusing on introducing people to Fedora. While the games are not going to be impressive for hard core gamers, there is a nice variety that is likely to have something of interest for most people. A liveusb based on the spin could be even better as that allows people to play their games on other people's computers while keeping their saved games and high score lists with them.

[edit] Kickstart File

[edit] ISO Name / FS Label

Fedora-23-Live-Games

[edit] Dependencies

  • Review existing included games for suitability.
  • Start making short test plans for all specifically included games.
    • This will not be complete by release.
    • Most popular 3d games still don't work with the nouveau driver.
  • There isn't much slack space, so game list shouldn't change much.

[edit] Scope / Testing

  • The plan is to pick a good set of showcase games, while still fitting on a DVD and having a reasonable desktop. Due to size constraints, some good games have been left out.
  • All of the listed games need to be tested to make sure they are playable.
  • Test sound and music for games that provide it.
  • Test network play for games that support it.
  • Getting good hardware coverage for testing 3D games may be difficult.

[edit] Slogan

Play with Fedora today!

[edit] Spin description

The games spin provides a way to showcase Fedora to potential users using games as a hook. The best games in a number of categories are included in the spin. It is also useful for testing how well 3D is supported with the native Fedora drivers on a particular system.

[edit] Support tab

For discussions relating to the included games, games@lists.fedoraproject.org is a good starting point.
