Football fans spend hours playing simulation management games and the socially-obsessed play titles like ‘The SIMs‘ – but what about the dedicated Linux user who dreams of creating the next Ubuntu?
Enter Linux Tycoon – a ‘Linux Distro Building Simulator game’. Filling a niche you never knew needed filling.
‘Be the Next Mark Shuttleworth’
The premise of the game is simple: create a Linux distro and try to get it to number 1 on the ‘distro charts’ (which are hopefully less liable to gaming than DistroWatch).
To do this you will need to: -
- Choose a set of software packages
- Manage a group of volunteer and paid developers
- Ensure bugs get fixed
- Keep your distro size to a ‘reasonable level’
- And more
If you fancy your chances as the next Mark Shuttleworth or Clement Lefebvre hit up the link below.
Linux Tycoon is currently in beta, lacks DRM, and costs a not-so-unreasonable $4.
