Towards the middle of last month X3: Reunion had finally gone gold after being in the porting process by Linux Game Publishing for almost two years. This game is finally shipping to customers by the end of this week. Additionally, Linux Game Publishing had hinted they had a "major announcement" to share, but it just turns out they have also gone gold with Jets 'n' Guns on Linux. LGP got its hands on Linux publishing rights for this unique game just in October.

The Jets 'n' Guns announcement was made on the LGP web-site. Customers in the US should start receiving their copies by the end of this month.

Linux Game Publishing has yet to release their port of Bandits: Phoenix Rising and Sacred: Gold, but they should be arriving in the coming months.
