Blowing Up Bits Is Back!

daemon_penguin After a long break I am happy to report Blowing Up Bits is back! Some time ago I got it into my head to dedicate a blog to writing about games in the open source community. So often I have heard people saying they would switch to open source operating systems exclusively if only Linux (or BSD) had good games. I’ve heard people say they want to ditch Windows, but they need to keep it around for gaming. People sometimes e-mail me and ask if I can recommend any good open source games.

Well, I can and that is what Blowing Up Bits is about!

I originally started Blowing Up Bits back in 2012 and got some good responses and requests for future reviews. It was great fun, but I ran into an increasing number of problems with the site hosting the blog and, at the time, did not have the required time/energy to deal with the various issues. Now I am happy to report Blowing Up Bits has a new home. The content from the original website has been migrated and fresh content is in the works.

I hope you will join me in exploring the wonderful and exicting world of open source gaming. There are a lot of hidden gems out there and we are going to dig them up together!

    Welcome back…GNU/Linux gaming is too important for your site to be away!
