True enough... Checkout the tools section of our homepage ( http://www.linuxgames.org/tools/ ).

A good place to start, though, would be http://www.opengl.org/ .  OpenGL is a portable 3D graphics API, a free version of which is available for almost any platform, including Linux.  It's called Mesa and I'm sure you'll find a reference to it on the OpenGL homepage.

Good luck.
