Tustin, California -- August 25, 2000 -- Loki Software, Inc., the leading publisher of best-selling games for the Linux operating system, accepted the coveted "Best of Show" award from IDG World Expo during the Show Favorites Awards ceremony at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo last week in San Jose, California.
Expo attendees cast their web-based ballots using kiosks on the show floor. They voted for "Show Favorites" in several categories, and selected Loki as offering the best overall for-Linux programs available.
"It is a tremendous honor to receive this recognition from the Linux community," said Scott Draeker, President of Loki Software. "With this award, Linux users have confirmed that Loki sets the standard for Linux games."
Loki booth visitors enjoyed testing their piloting skills with Descent 3 for Linux on a precision three-axis motion base simulator, and playing other recent or soon-to-be-released titles from Loki, including Soldier of Fortune, SimCity 3000 Unlimited, Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri and MindRover. Paul Nolan was also on-hand to show users the unique features of the stunning graphics package Photogenics which will soon be published by Loki.
Loki will continue to showcase new products at the next LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in New York City in February, 2001.
