Additional Info
Here is FreeOrion, an open source tactical space trading and conquest game.

The game use glshim and the speed is ok (for turn by turn game), and also use Python so the wxPython.pnd must be present too.

The relatively low res screen of the Pandora make it quite difficult to play. By default, the game will be on 800x480, so some field may be out of screen. If you use "fake-screen-res" (on by default for Gigahertz and Rebirth), you can also choose 800x600 or 1024x600 virtual resolution. All dialog will fit the screen then, but some text will be more difficult to read.

At least but not least, this game use quite some memory, so a Swapfile is mandatory for CC user, and probably a good idea for Rebirth/Gigahertz.

The game as many parameters to tweak, so maybe the GUI can be adapted...

Played some more. Great game, even if unfinished and quite slow. Unmounts most of the time, can't say why it sometimes fails.

Very nice (but haven't played much yet). Thanks! Doesn't unmount cleanly, though.
