Danger from the Deep [1] runs on Linux. AFAIK the engine is free as in
speech, but everything else isn't… :(

Will everything of OpenSSN be free as in speech?

By personal interest, I'd like to know if you plan to implement some
"Hollywood like" eye candy as found in Danger from the Deep? I'd love to
play a submarine simulation on LAN parties or over the internet if it
has some tactics, technical stuff but also some nice explosions etc. ;)
