  • Shadowgrounds Survivor coming to Linux

    Well I said it before here
    But let's try it again with it's own thread. Offical english press release can be downloaded here

    Haven't played it myself tough, so I can't say anything about game itself.

      If the stuff I saw on IGIOS' site (the bunch doing the porting work for Frozenbyte) is any indication it really IS good news.

        I specially liked the part where they said "'Linux is fast becoming accepted in the mainstream and we are thrilled to take part in delivering quality games
        content for the platform,' said Mr. Lauri Hyvarinen, Frozenbyte CEO. "Frozenbyte remains focused on great
        console and Windows games but the groundbreaking work of IGIOS broadens the reach of our games onto the
        Linux platform."

                I played the windows demo a few years back than when there first Shadowgrounds was released.
                As I remember correctly, I enjoyed playing it, even though the demo was quite short.
                Also the whole windows gaming market was imo already overwhelmed of not-so-great titles, I didn't tested it that long and simply decided to not buy it (as I had already hundreds of good titles).

                Today due to the lack of many great titles for the linux platform, I of course will buy it and I'm quite sure I will love it as I love scifi in general. =)

                  The reviews for it were favorable. It's a top-down shoot anything that moves type game. It's in the same vein as Smash TV as one reviewer described it- same kind of easy to step into, easy to step out of gameplay. At the pricepoint, it should be pretty good if you're into that sort of thing.

                    Any info on what's going on with his one? No news and apparently frozenbyte has taken down the press release

                      Well looks like web site has been designed from the scratch... But game should be under development, there has been beta testers wanted on guru3d -forums while a go(in may).

                        Thanks for the heads up. I'll PM the OP to see if s/he knows more about the status of the port and can actually say anything about it.
