    Phoronix: Linux Game Publishing Shake-Up: CEO Steps Down

    There's some news today out of Linux Game Publishing, but it's not about a new game being ported to Linux. Rather, it's an apology from Michael Simms, the CEO of LGP, and to announce his resignation. Linux Game Publishing though isn't going away but a new CEO has been announced...

    Most people stop ordering from a company when they fail to deliver once. Congratulations on your perseverance! You should treat yourself to night out on the town.

    If I seem flippant, it's because I don't believe that anyone would continue to purchase from a company that fails to deliver or provide recompense for one game, let alone 14, especially with the jacked up prices that LGP is charging.

    All the games were "released" or "soon to be ported"?

    And i also have e-mail conversations with Michael Simms about the matter.
    I'm thinking about reporting them to European Consumer Centres Network.
    I never got any games or my money back.
    If i remeber correctly it's 14 games never delivered

    Great news:

    "Due to the current events surrounding Linux Game Publishing I have decided to temporarily offer their games massively cheaper (while at camp). For 14 days every LGP games, which I have in stock are 66% cheaper .

    First, I want to celebrate it with LGP are finally signs of life. Secondly, I expect and hope that prices will fall and lose my goods anyway so its value is.

    Get information in advance as Holarse users to contact me gets a little like getting a better deal. It is a losing proposition anyway. "
