Enter Obsidian Entertainment, an established developer, whose people are responsible for games like Planescape:Torment, Fallout 1, 2 & New Vegas, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2, and Neverwinter Nights 2. They are running a kickstarter for Project Eternity, a party based RPG that will be released on PC, Mac, and even linux.

The low down: They need money (don't we all) to finish the project. However, your donation actually buys a license for the game in one of several forms, depending on how much you pay. The bad nws is you are buying a license for a specific operating system, so you'll still have to "buy" a separate license if you can't emulate it with wine or something similar.

Personally, I hate having to swith OSes in order to play a game, but I develop on occasion in linux, and the only games I play are Windows, so I deal with it, regardless. However, I'm going to be getting this gem for linux, for the very obvious fact that linux needs gaming in order to truly thrive, and native games are not taken seriously. That needs to change.

You can find more info on the game itself here.
Never say never or always. In most cases, there is an exception to anything you can think of that you might use either word in. "Most likely" and "highly improbable" in a lot of those cases would ring true, but not never/always.

Interesting. For linux, too? That would make a lot of people happy.

Out of all the games these people are associated with, I only finished Planescape: Torment, and it had an excellent storyline that would be hard to beat. I'm game for them to try. ;]
