    I don't think that's the reason, as neither Windows comes with Flash pre-installed.

    RE: Linux users not playing Flash games?
    Maybe both of you are right and the only problem is with the low Linux market share, even if my 2 other main websites have a different trend for Linux users. [url=http://www.lowpoly-studios.com/]Lowpoly Studios[/url] (my indie games company): [b]Win[/b] 65.28% - [b]Lin[/b] 19.79% - [b]Mac[/b] 13.28% [url=http://www.the-undergrounder.com/]The Undergrounder[/url] (my multi-platform indie game): [b]Win[/b] 53.33% - [b]Lin[/b] 30.37% - [b]Mac[/b] 14.28% I was expecting something like the stats I have for the first website, but that one is been online for about 2 years now and maybe 1 month is just not enough for true stats.

    Lowpoly Studios (my indie games company): Win 65.28% - Lin 19.79% - Mac 13.28%
    The Undergrounder (my multi-platform indie game): Win 53.33% - Lin 30.37% - Mac 14.28%

    I was expecting something like the stats I have for the first website, but that one is been online for about 2 years now and maybe 1 month is just not enough for true stats.

    Linux users not playing Flash games?
    Linux has never been the best platform for games, so I've always been thinking Flash (and other browser) games were pretty appreciated amongst Linux users as they can be played on every platform supported by the Flash plugin. Well, it seems I were wrong. About one month ago I created a Flash games portal called [url=http://www.askflashgames.com/]AskFlashGames[/url] trying to collect only quality games, because most of the ones I came across were filled with rubbish. These are the visitors stats of the first month: [url=http://www.lowpoly-studios.com/data/img/AFG-stats_month_01.png][img]http://www.lowpoly-studios.com/data/img/AFG-stats_month_01-thumb.png[/img][/url] [i]click to enlarge[/i] As you may notice, Linux users are below the 10% threshold and half of the Mac users (doesn't Steve Jobs say Flash is bad? :))! To be honest I have no idea why this is happening, and as a portal owner and Linux user I'd like to improve this situation for what I can. So I thought to post on this forum and ask if you play Flash games and if not, why? Any answer, feedback, story or tip is appreciated, thanks ;)

    Cool website, well done! :) Maybe having a news page with latest published games and updated and adding more info to game profiles would make it perfect ;)

    RE: The Undergrounder - Closed beta open for registrat
    the game should run on every distro having 3D drivers (not sure about opensource versions like nouveau) and SDL libs installed, so every Linux user is welcome to register and test the game.

The testing will be accessible on invitation only and will follow a formula similar to the one used for Google Gmail and other Google products. We're going to select a first group of testers that will receive the first invites, then, after a few weeks, all the active testers will receive new invites to share with friends and other people interested in joining the testing. So why help us with testing? Most active testers will receive discounts on the game and will be listed in the game credits as a tester. If you're really interested in testing The Undergrounder fill the [url=http://www.the-undergrounder.com/beta_reg.php]registration form[/url] and help us to make an awesome game! ;) For more details you can read the [url=http://www.the-undergrounder.com/news.php#07Sep2010]full announce[/url] on the game website.

    RE: video editing
    Just in case you're curious, I published the trailer today on the [url=http://www.the-undergrounder.com/]game website[/url] (any feedback/comment is welcome). I made it using RecordMyDesktop and Kdenlive, two software far from perfection, but pretty usable. I'm probably going to write a blog post about the "making of", so if anybody is interested, I'll publish more details next week.
