 Loki: A Promising Plan Gone Terribly Wrong

Linux and Main talks about Loki.

"The plan was a good one: Port the most popular Windows games to Linux. It would involve licensing the original titles, coding the ports, and selling them to a world full of eager Linux users and growing every day. By early December, Loki had a website, but no product. This would be the beginning of a trend: Either a ready market and nothing to sell, or far more to sell than the market would buy. By late December, Loki had contracted with Activision to produce a port of Civilization: Call to Power. And Scott Draker continued to collect unemployment."
