I have tried this os out in the past and it is pretty good most of the games worked fine. You can get a ordinary DVD from the download page.   B)"The SuperGamer-VL2 Disks are available now.The SuperGamer-VL2 is the update to the SuperGamer-VL "Big Mamma" release with new custom graphics and some additional Games. We took off America's Army and put on Quake Wars and a few smaller games. This LiveDVD is 4.2gb. We just released the SuperGamer-VL2 Disks. We will add the torrents to each iso in the following days. Additional information will soon follow as well on where download these New Releases.The SuperGamer-VL "Big Mamma" is the first release on a new base with support for both NVIDIA and ATI cards. This release featured a new kernel and updated games and is 4.3gb in size while still containing the capabilities to be used as a normal desktop. This release is also being seeded.

A game I recently found that has the feel like "World of Goo" is called "Caph".  From a review: It is a sandbox game, based on physics. The game aim is to make contact red object with green object. You can use various objects, solid, wire (rope), and bendable objects. Gravitation will help you.  I haven't found much in the way of help yet ie: saving a game so you don't always start at the beginning....

I looked into it a while back. It's supposed to work under Wine but since I don't like Wine, I didn't bother.You could try Runescape. That works well. :hysterical:

Pay what you want. If you bought these games separately it would cost around $35 but we are letting you set the price.

All of the games work great on Mac, Windows, and Linux.

Very cool. I bought the Voxatron bundle the other week when they just had that game and then they added like 6 more to the same package. Since I bought the original package, I was able to download all of the games added to the package.

Cradle

QUOTE
Cradle is a science-fiction first-person quest with freedom of movement. The story is built around the relations of the protagonist and a mechanical girl, who by enigmatic circumstances find themselves together in a yurt among the desert Mongolian hills. The player is to restore the lost functions of his companion's mechanical body parts and together reveal the mystery of the neglected entertainment park found not far from the yurt.


The videos look great. Looks like a modern Syberia an that was a fantastic game.

Flightgear

QUOTE
Founded in 1997, FlightGear is developed by a worldwide group of volunteers, brought together by a shared ambition to create the most realistic flight simulator possible that is free to use, modify and distribute. FlightGear is used all over the world by desktop flight simulator enthusiasts, for research in Universities and for interactive exhibits in museums.

FlightGear features more than 400 aircraft, a worldwide scenery database, a worldwide multi-player environment, detailed sky modelling, a flexible and open aircraft modelling system, varied networking options, multiple display support, a powerful scripting language and an open architecture. Best of all, being open-source, the simulator is owned by the community and everyone is encouraged to contribute.


A major update to this classic.

Three more that are still at the development stage and not really my cup of tea. Though Starbound looks like it might be good fun for the younger player.
