Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, the famous Nintendo 64 video game returns for Linux

There are many developers who take into account the Gnu / Linux platform to launch their video games, but there are even more developers who want to bring old video games for Gnu / Linux back to life. Tomb Raider and Age Of Empires were the first, but they are not the only ones.

It has recently been released a version of the game Turok: Dinosaur Hunter for Gnu / Linux. A very popular game from the late 90s that was born for the Nintendo 64 but is now available on Gnu / Linux based operating systems.

For those who did not know Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, nor did they play it, comment that it is a shooter game that combines the best of Tomb Raider, Doom and dinosaurs. No, it is not a remake of Jurassic Park but it is an adventure where the protagonist must get various parts of an ancient artifact.

To get these parts, the protagonist must make his way through various dinosaurs and beasts that will attack the protagonist. The new version maintains the story, the protagonists and even the graphics, but all with free technology, that is, on a Gnu / Linux distribution. The new version requires that we have a computer with an Intel i5 processor, 2 Gb of ram and a graphics card from Nvidia or Ati Radeon.

We can get Turok: Dinosaur Hunter through the main web from the developer or via Steam. In any case, the price of the game is not very high, so we can kill dinosaurs again for a small price or, if we didn't know this game, enjoy a popular game for Gnu / Linux.

The truth is that Turok: Dinosaur Hunter was a famous video game when it was launched, but its success was not very high, in fact, I do not remember any future sequels. Even so, it is appreciated that video games are released for Gnu / Linux distributions, especially for Desktop users. I hope it is not the last game to make this update.

    What a terrible report, which had no sequels, disgust for reporting and what a misinformed blogger
