I've been thinking a bit about why I'm doing this project, and a lot of it has to do with wanting to contribute to the free/open culture world. Games, specifically, I feel are interesting to make, and we need a lot more of them in the FOSS world.
I decided to check up on the state of some of these games. Now that Live CDs are commonplace (they weren't when we started, although statements like that are likely to become trite if you believe the exponential acceleration going on in technology and culture), I found a great "spin" (a slight re-working) of Fedora called the Fedora Games Spin, which basically demos for you, on a Live CD (no install!) a whole host of free, open source games.
As we're already planning a Fedora package, I think when we have a good playable version (possibly 0.3, maybe 0.4), we should try to get ourselves included on this. It will also help greatly with our publicity, which should ramp up considerably after the 0.3 release.
