Ikey Doherty (founder of Solus Linux) is up to open source gaming!
The entitled "Linux Badass" appears to have launched an open-source focused gaming / software development company.
After Solus he went on to work on Intel's Clear Linux project & now a new firm: "Lispy Snake" works on game engines and indeed games. Given the Irishman's experience, this firm will leverage open-source technologies.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.

I just bought Turris Omnia - open hardware router running free operating system based on OpenWrt. I hope it will reduce my ISP router to a mere fibre optic modem 😃
