    • linear-to-no plots
    • game art facilitates clear, concise gameplay but cuts fat
    • straight forward gameplay
    • medium learning curve
    • hardcore gamers buy dedicated chips for Steam
  • Mass appeal
    • works out of the box
    • works on standard computers
    • builds affinity for Gnome and Linux
    • clean art
    • hardcore gamers buy dedicated chips for Steam

    • common map creator
    • common level creator
