While LGP was once the leading source for providing Linux-native games, these days there isn't much to say for them and their web-site remains offline one and a half months after trying to do a server upgrade.

Linux Game Publishing disappeared at the end of April when they were going to upgrade their server to improve their infrastructure, at which time they said they would try to "attempt to keep downtime to an absolute minimum." Since then, LinuxGamePublishing.com has been offline and t here's been no updates via their quiet Facebook page nor any responses to email inquiries. This doesn't strike any confidence considering a few years ago they went offline for many months when their single server failed.


There's no word on whether their Internet-based DRM solution imposed a few years ago is working or not.
