Hash: SHA1

Shadowgrounds: Survivor Proceeds On Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Nearly a year ago we shared that two new PC action games were being ported to 
| Linux. The games were Shadowgrounds and, its sequel, Shadowgrounds: Survivor. 
| Both games were supposed to ship in the first half of 2008 for Linux, but 
| that never ended up materializing. A Finnish game studio known as Frozenbyte 
| originally developed these games and the Linux port was contracted to a 
| company known as IGIOS. In August we were told that the delay was due to 
| publisher negotiations and that they would hopefully have something in a week 
| or two. That never ended up amounting to anything, but a month ago, we 
| finally learned that Linux Game Publishing was working on Shadowgrounds: 
| Survivor. Well, last night we finally got our hands on a beta copy of 
| Shadowgrounds: Suvivor for Linux.          


The World of Google is all about GNU/Linux. As for World of Goo:

World of Goo on Linux is a hit

| In its first two days of availability, 2D Boy saw the Linux version of World 
| of Goo grow to claim 4.6 per cent of its sales, and the day the release went 
| live saw 2D Boy’s previous best sales day bettered by 40 per cent. As the 
| firm points out, the numbers certainly suggest that “there is a market for 
| Linux games after all :)”.
