Eschalon is a turn-based RPG that has been developed by a small game company called Basilisk Games. A few months ago it was announced that Eschalon has been made available for Linux so I decided to give it a try. Keep in mind before moving on that I do not look upon myself as much of a gamer. I’m that type of Linux geek that likes to solve real-life puzzles such “what development libraries am I missing to be able to compile this source code?” So no, I’m not into gaming and spending hours of my life trying to defeat virtual monsters. But something about Eschalon made me put aside all these facts and next thing you know I was slaughtering Tauraxes in the Western side of Blackwater.
