  • Penny Arcade game to be release on 21st

    The game the guys over at Penny Arcade has just got it's release date set for the 21st of may (8 days). So that's another game being released for linux. Now if only I finished my exams two days earlier it would have been perfect.

            Seeing as Tycho and Gabe have to power to bring down medium sized websites by just linking to them in a blog post I'm not all that surprised either.

                It may be indeed a good thing I waited until now to download the Demo, I'm getting stable 220-250Kbps :P

                What I seriously see as a bonus is the availability of the Windows, Mac and Linux simultaneously, I think this is a first for the three major operating systems. UT2003/4 had included the Linux and Windows installers on the same disk (disk set), but all three major OSes... This has got to be a first. Especially of a highly anticipated game like this! I'll most likely buy it, but first I want to see the Demo

                  I bought it purely because they release here at the same price as in America. Generally we pay in pounds what Americans pay in dollars and currently it's almost $2 to the pound (lets not go in to Rock Band...)

                    Just played the demo for a bit... Can you say quality? I'm amazed how this game plays on my system, with all and Compiz running, and on x86_64, without a hitch. Linux people should buy this one in hordes (Ok, not in hordes, but seriously, excellent game!)

                      From the look of it, it seems as if downloading the Demo you actually get the whole game, which you can unlock with a code which you purchase... I'll purchase the license as soon as I can, this game really deserves it!

                        Yeah it's the full game with limits imposed until you unlock it. A lot of indie developers do that as it saves bandwidth and probably cost.

                        There are a couple of bugs I've seen but nothing serious. All in all an awesome release.

                          Indeed. Kudos to Greenhouse (for not being afraid of the 800 pound Gorilla!)

                              i'll just post what i've said elsewhere:

                              "not that fun when after fighting some stupid fruitfackers, meeting the guys, you're told to go meet some lady, you go to the main menu to see if you can save...well you can't...demo restriction?... but upon resuming the game you'll find out that your mouse cursor is not onscreen...back to menu...cursor in ok...back in game...no cursor... keyboard control? not available... exit game.... SegFault... rm -fr rainslick

                              more QA on the Linux version, kthxbye!"

                              and the demo seems to end there actually:

                              "what? for real? that sux then, if that's a demo what should i expect in the full version? more fruitfackers? bigger ones? more 30sec runs and combat, rince, and repeat?

                              where's the RPG part? the cat? "
