Encouraging game development on Ubuntu

Registered by Shane Fagan on 2010-09-03

We should discuss ways to encourage growth in gaming on Ubuntu. Use of social media, a pluggable trophy system, deployment and U1 integration should be talked about to see how we can push this area forward.

The target should be developers of new games but if we can think of ways to encouraging of ports of existing popular games it would be nice.
