Letter to Windows Game Developers:

We all know Microsoft gives you Kickbacks to make your Game Windows exclusive. What if I said you could be making more than the Kickback Microsoft is giving you by making your Game for Linux, Mac and Windows?. You would like that I'm sure, who wouldn't want some extra money.

We understand you are using Microsoft as a crutch and are afraid to let them go. Times change, and so are your Customers, your Customers are moving away from Windows to Operating Systems like Linux which provide more freedom to them. If you haven't been keeping up with the news, Microsoft isn't doing so well anymore and there is no telling how much longer they can provide those Kickbacks to you.

Are you willing to risk making a Game for a Platform that's dying?. Windows is slowly becoming irrelevant, don't let your business become obsolete with it. DirectX and XNA are dead, OpenGL is alive and gives you the freedom to make your Games for all Operating Systems. You're at the Cross Roads now, do you take the Road of endless possibilities, or the Dead End?.

Indie games are cropping up everywhere, making games that are compatible with Linux. Companies like EA are close to going bankrupt, THQ already has. The days of the Big Boys are over, and the Indies and Alternative Operating Systems are coming out in full force. You don't have to trust me, go have a look around, but be not afraid of what you find; the future is bright and full of Freedom and Choice.
