For users on Linux and Unix, KDE offers a full suite of user workspace applications which allow interaction with these operating systems in a modern, graphical user interface. This includes Plasma Desktop, KDE's innovative and powerful desktop interface. Other workspace applications are included to aid with system configuration, running programs, or interacting with hardware devices. While the fully integrated KDE Workspaces are only available on Linux and Unix, some of these features are available on other platforms. In addition to the workspace, KDE produces a number of key applications such as the Konqueror Web browser, Dolphin file manager, and Kontact, the comprehensive personal information management suite. The list of applications includes many others, including those for education, multimedia, office productivity, networking, games, and much more. Most applications are available on all platforms supported by the KDE Development. KDE also brings to the forefront many innovations for application developers. An entire infrastructure has been designed and implemented to help programmers create robust and comprehensive applications in the most efficient manner, eliminating the complexity and tediousness of creating highly functional applications.

Features include: hardware accelerated 2D and 3D rendering; Ogg and WAV Sound support with OpenAL; Lua scripting; BMP, JPEG, and PNG image loading and saving (from screenshots); easily created and modified user interfaces with XML and CSS, combined with Lua event handling; separate 2D and 3D libraries; support for multiple fonts in both TTF and bitmap formats; support for OBJ, 3DS, MD5, and RTM model formats; skeletal animation (a work in progress); support for UDP and TCP networking; thread and mutex support; a Simple Shader API; 2D animated sprites; and some basic cryptography support. There is simple event management, with key/mouse bindings easily customized from the in-game console, config file, command line, or GUI.
Me and My Shadow is a puzzle/platform game in which you try to reach the exit by solving puzzles. Spikes, moving blocks, fragile blocks, and much more stand between you and the exit. Record your moves and let your shadow mimic them to reach blocks you couldn't reach alone. Play through over 40 levels and use the built-in level editor to make your own.
EZDM (ezdungeonmaster) is a simple set of tools for dungeon managers, targeting AD&D 2nd edition rules. It's not an RPG game, but some helper tools for people DM-ing real games, and is designed not to get in the way of roleplay and storytelling, but simply help do the math during encounters and leveling. Dice rolling can be done by the computer, or the tools can be set for manual dice, in which case you simply enter the results of the roll. All game data, charts, and character sheets are stored in JSON format. The EZDM kit defaults to using a simple dialog-based GUI which requires easygui, but a console interface is also available.
SpaceZero is a RTS 2D space combat game for two players over a network. The objective is to conquer the space, defeating all enemies. At the starting point, you have only one ship and one planet, but you have money to buy more ships to conquer more planets. All the ships can be controlled by the computer (automatic mode) or by the player (manual mode). You can easily change among your ships, controlling all of them independently.
XorCurses is a game based entirely on Xor by Astral Software. The original game was released around 1987 for the 8-bit home computers popular at the time. XorCurses attempts to faithfully recreate that game for Linux, but slightly ironically, uses ASCII characters instead of pixel based graphics (which even the 8-bit computers could manage). The idea of Xor is to roam around a series of mazes collecting masks. The first level is simply a matter of finding your way around, but the second level introduces fish and chickens which block your path or kill you if they hit you. From there on in, things get progressively tougher and really is a challenging and difficult puzzle game.
