Linux games developer Loki Entertainment will follow up its release of Civilization: Call to Power with Linux ports of Myth II: Soulblighter, Railroad Tycoon II and Eric's Ultimate Solitaire. The company didn't specify when the three new titles would ship, other than a cautious "available in 1999". However, Loki's programmers will need to move quickly -- it has already promised eight ported games will ship this year. Civilization: Call to Power was announced back in January, and shipped this month, five months down the line. Loki's bent is clearly towards more strategic titles -- Linux gamers requiring a little more action (though Myth II is furious and bloody enough) can try the recently released test version of Id Software's Quake III Arena. ®
