Remember Ryzom? Or maybe you know them by the name Saga of Ryzom? Six months ago they FLOSS/FOSS‘d their server and client code, and the art assets under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike. (read: Ryzom Embraces Free Software and Creative Commons)
On November 30th, Winch Gate Properties Ltd released an official native Ryzom client for GNU/Linux! To celebrate this another milestone, they are running an in-game contest and giving away a ZaReason Linux Terra-HD Netbook worth $450.
To participate in the contest, players will have to log into the game and find the seven relevant GNU/Linux artifacts hidden throughout Silan, the starting island. Each of the seven artifacts will test a player’s knowledge of Ryzom. The winners will be drawn from the players with the correct answers. Contestants can participate freely in the contest using a free 21-day trial option.
