(AmigaOS, AROS and MorphOS would make suitable platforms) (Check out the details) Here's a short abstract of the interview ("VE" being "Voodoo Extreme" and "JT" being Garage Games' President Jeff Tunnell):
VE - I gotta be frank....$100 for the source to a AAA gaming engine seems to be a steal. What's the catch?

JT - Of course there is a catch. GarageGames must be the exclusive publisher for the game, and we split our on-line revenue with our developers 50/50. If the games are good enough to go to the box channel, they must be represented by GarageGames, and first offered to Sierra.

More information on Tribes 2 can be found over at its official homepage.
