There have been many good suggestions for new games in gnome games so
far. One of the games that I like is glChess
(http://glchess.sourceforge.net/). It depends upon OpenGl, using the
GtkGLExt library. Note that glChess does not require hardware support to
be playable with OpenGl, it can also be played with software as well.
OpenGL is perfectly suited for game-development. I would imagine that
OpenGl would add the extra graphic-appeal to gnome-games that some
people have been missing, and that we possibly could see more games with
OpenGl for GNOME in the future. Many Linux distributions already ship
with several OpenGl games by default (eg. Neverball and Tux Racer).
How do people feel about adding GtkGLExt as a library dependency on
gnome-games, if glChess would be selected as a new game?
