    Phoronix: Linux Game Publishing Is Working On A New Port

    Linux Game Publishing fell off a cliff last year when their main (and only) server crashed and was offline for about two months time causing their DRM server to go with it, etc. It was at a time that LGP wasn't also publicly announcing any future work or other projects, which led many to wonder whether LGP was finally being laid to rest in a similar manner to Loki Software. However, even once they came back online, no new announcements were made. They've now only finally commented about the future...

        Also there's a new X game in the works, X: Rebirth, planned for a 2011 release. Obviously it's windows only at this point.

            Additionally, "We're also working on a few other things that we should be announcing in the near future."
            Tbh they've been saying that for quite some time now. It's high time they spilled at least some of the beans

              SC2

              Ha, it's StarCraft 2!

              No.. it's probably not. I'd donate 30 bucks to both Blizzard and LGP if that's the case

                  DRM

                  is there no way to not implement that stupid drm?

                  It is annoying that one need to have an internet connection to start a game... I have X2/X3, Sacred Gold and some others like Ankh1/2 etc. Unfortunately I haven't played those (or any game except OilRush for that matter) for a while, so it might be that you only need the internet connection once. For OFFLINE games...

                  That is as annoying as, when I want to play one of my MMORPGs and find out that your account has been banned/closed or something -.-

                    Sacred2

                    btw. I hope the next port is Sacred2 (or NWN2 where I have all parts already anyway)

                      I own X3: Reunion, Sacred Gold, Jets n Guns, and Shadowgrounds and I was able to play those games just fine when their server was down. I think it mostly affected owners who hadn't entered their key in yet and people who were renting games.

                        I do not have those games installed all the time. That's why I said, it might be that you only have to activate them once. But still, I would prefer to just extract the game and play.
                        On the other hand, they have an automatic updater for all installed games in their launcher. This is something good

                          This makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Please let it be X3

                            +1 to X3:TC

                            X3 feels like only the half thing when you know theres a bigger, better X3 (TC) just around the corner (but not really, cause i've been clean (from dualboot) for a while now)
