Linux Game Publishing has announced today that they will be the publisher of Mindware's Cold War. Cold War can be described as: Cold War follows the story of a freelance journalist who finds himself in the midst of an international conspiracy that aims to control the U.S.S.R. Twelve hours after arriving in Moscow for a routine story, he has been stripped of all possessions, beaten unconscious and thrown into the KGB`s political prison. Using only recovered weapons and improvised gadgets, he must now evade or overcome elite Soviet forces and defeat the conspiracy before he is sent to a Siberian prison camp or killed.
The Linux demo of Cold War had premiered last November, and it will not be until June 15, 2006 that LGP will begin to ship the title. For screenshots from the demo maps, Phoronix has it covered
