LGames is a collection of Linux games (that's what the L stands for), released under the GNU GPL. However, most of the games have been ported to different platforms by now. This includes MacOS X, BeOS, NetBSD, Win32, Solaris and others, depending on the game.

The base for all games is the excellent Simple DirectMedia Layer, short SDL, written by Sam Latinga, as well as some extensions for it like the SDL_mixer library.
