Hi, one of main OpenRCT2 developers here (the one responsible for Linux port). It's an honour to be a free software of the week. You mention cheats, but you must have missed the "Allow building in pause mode" option there. If I may suggest some improvements to this article:

  1. You could link to our official website, https://openrct2.website
  2. You could mention we have a quite active chat on gitter: https://gitter.im/OpenRCT2/OpenRCT2
  3. We have some (third party) packages in some distributions, they are listed in our readme document.

Other than that, I would like to recommend contributing to open source to anyone reading, it's a lot of fun, you eventually get to know smart people and learn a lot in the process. Doing one open source project usually leads to another ones, because you end up needing some specific use case of a library you depend on or require a specific tool for a given job, that you may have to implement first based on some other work and you end up learning even more than you originally signed up for.

It may not look like it on the surface, but even the most niche projects like this one can end up having a significant impact on other ones.
