Ubuntu Invaders: First the wallpaper, now the game

Ever wanted to control an Ubuntu-logo shaped space-ship to blast bugs out of the sky with? Well, it’s coming.

Earlier this week we posted an Ubuntu-themed Space Invaders style retro wallpaper that left many of us wanting it to be that little bit more than a collection of static pixels sat stagnant on our desktops.

Luke Benstead, who writes for our sister site UbuntuGamer.com, has begun working on a working, controllable, shoot ‘em up, blast-o-rama, you-in-the-cock-pit version of this very game.
