Savage 2: A Supported Penguin

Savage 2: A Tortured Soul to Feature Native Linux Client Support at Launch has word on plans to support the launch of S2 Games' upcoming RTS/FPS sequel with a native Linux client upon launch:

ROHNERT PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 15, 2006--Independent Game Developer S2 Games announced today that it will be supporting the Linux® community by offering Native Linux Client support at launch for its upcoming triple-A title, Savage 2: A Tortured Soul. Savage 2 is the much anticipated sequel to Savage: The Battle for Newerth and will be available in Fall of 2006 as a digital download from the S2 Website.

In order to facilitate the use of a Linux Client at launch, the S2 Games team is working diligently to convert their DirectX® K2 engine, a next-gen game engine built from the ground up specifically for Savage 2, to that of Linux's OpenGL system. The conversion is a necessity as the high-end renderer (DirectX) in the new engine is a Microsoft® product and does not work with Linux. With help from the Linux community and two of Savage's top enthusiasts -- Uttar and WhiteDwarf -- S2 is converting the DirectX renderer, one of the more impressive aspects of the game engine, as the effort will enable Linux gamers to utilize their Linux Client when playing the game.

Any and all excitment I had for this game was lost when I read this thread:

LAN play was the only way I played Savage 1. I hope they decide to support.
