In theory this editor should work in Peppermint.

Ah, Unity.  Great game engine.  I'm no programmer, but I've certainly played games that others have made with Unity.  :)

And, yes, it most certainly should work with Peppermint, since Peppermint is Ubuntu based and it says it works in Ubuntu.

Good, scifidude79.  That article caused me to think about you.  You're the only gamer I know for certain who uses Linux! :)  Now, whether or not you use Linux for gaming  --that I don't know. :-\

I game on anything I can.  I have 26 games on my Steam account that are Linux compatible, 7 on GOG, as well as some other stuff from the repositories that I play.

I have heard that these newer games can be very good for the brain.  If so, I imagine your brain must be getting quite a workout with that large selection of games you possess.  :)

P.S.

This is almost too much to believe, but I've got this Morph 3D Free Dynamic Unity Character Pack download available right now.  How's that for a perfect example of advertisement and conversion synchronization?  I'm impressed! ;D

Some games are just running around shooting stuff, so I doubt those do much for your brain.  Others have problem and puzzle solving, so I'd imagine those can't be all bad for you.

All I'm getting is how I can date sexy Thai women. (if only ;) )

Lucky you! :)

Now how do I explain to Google Analytics that I'm not a gamer? :-\

And now I'm getting Virtual World of Kaneva, Racing Games , and some Star Wars game, and FelspirE!!

By the way, those shooting games are supposed to help eye hand coordination.  I hear that many fighter pilots first began with games such as those.

The bad thing about the Star Wars game:  not Linux compatible.   >:(  Too bad, because I like that game.  But, such is life.

If I see the Star Wars advertisement again, I'll try to get the full name of it just in case it's a Linux compatible version.  It looks to me as if Google now sees me as a gamer, so I may see it again.  I also did a couple of searches today about the Russian company Yandex.  And, sure enough, now I'm getting advertisements on how to date Russian women!  Honestly, the advertisements in Peppermint are a kick.   I feel quite flattered by some of these advertisements, and I have a lot of fun watching what they think I'll want next.

By the way, I'd be perfectly satisfied with a System76 Bonobo Laptop computer. :)

P.S.

I Skyped Greece earlier today, and tonight I'm also getting advertisements for Greek Garden Organic Olive Oil.  From what I can tell, Google doesn't miss a thing I do online.  All these things just can't be a coincidence.

If it's Star Wars: The Old Republic, (which is the one I usually see) it's only available for Windows.  There are only about six or seven Star Wars games available for Linux, most of them are old DOS games.
