For the better part of a year, LGP was porting Shadowgrounds: Survivor to Linux
after in early 2008 we learned that Shadowgrounds and Shadowgrounds: Survivor were coming to Linux
(back when they were being ported outside of LGP). However, in late August, Shadowgrounds: Survivor went gold
. Never did Linux Game Publishing comment on the original Shadowgrounds title. This morning though there is a surprise: they have ported this original action game.
LGP has to much surprise announced the release of Shadowgrounds. This original title never even had a closed beta program, but we're told it was a much easier port than Shadowgrounds: Survivor. This game will be available for about $16 USD, which is cheaper than many other LGP titles.
This surprise announcement was made on the LGP blog
