2009-07 Wednesday 15th, Re-release of the Penumbra Series for Mac & Linux

*edit* Gamer's Gate - http://www.gamersgate.com/, will be offering the Collection at 5 USD to Windows gamers as well!*edit*

Helsingborg, Sweden - 15th of July 2009

Re-release of the Penumbra Series for Mac & Linux - USD 5 launch offer!

With a brand new installer the three Penumbra games will be available as a single download starting this Friday the 17th. The new release will improve the user experience compared to the original "three downloads with three serials"-installation procedure.

During the launch weekend of Friday the 17th to Sunday the 19th the Penumbra Collection for Mac & Linux will sell for a mere USD 5! Windows users recently had the same offer available to them and due to numerous inquires from Mac & Linux gamers we hope that this offer will achieve full cross-platform horror enjoyment. After the launch weekend the Penumbra Collection will sell for USD 20.

The Penumbra Collection will be available in the Frictional Games Store for Mac & linux. In addition the Mac version will also be available from the Mac Game Store, Mac Games Arcade and the recently launched Gamer's Gate for Mac. All stores are participating in the USD 5 weekend launch!

RE: 2009-07 Wednesday 15th, Re-release of the Penumbra Series for Mac & Linux

I only recently found out about these games via indiegames.com. I was really excited about the game after I saw the screen shot, and looked around at some reviews of the games. I thought GREAT $5 bucks, I'll buy it.

Suddenly I realized that I had missed a major detail, LINUX & MAC versions of the game are on sale, NOT Windows.

I was instantly deflated, and wondered why am I being penalized for finding out about this game late, and having a Windows operating system.

I instantly began to look around for a way to run LINUX easily, but thought, why don't I just tell them what I am thinking?

So, I would like to encourage you to put all versions of the game on sale during this short period. It isn't likely that you will loose out on many sales, and you are more than likely to get some people to actually purchase the game, rather than find it pirated online somewhere.

All the best,
Joshua

We can't sell the collection for Windows, only for Mac & Linux. Since Windows users has a weekend like this a couple of weeks ago on Steam it is only fair that Mac & Linux get the same opportunity!

We are looking into to see if there is any seller of the Windows version interested in doing a deal for the weekend. Will post if there is a store doing the deal.

I was unaware of the sale on Steam, and had I known I would just have counted myself unlucky to have found out about it too late.

Thank you so much for your effort to help me personally. You guys rock! I will definitely purchase it this weekend.

I will also tell the web site from which I found out about your game, about the sale, so they can spread the news.

All the best,
Joshua

I like the way how team at Frictional Games help people with their personal problems.
Many other gaming companies seem to let other people (normal users) on forums solve the problems etc.

Others should really take Frictional Games as their role models if you ask me.

Just tech support coming from the devs.

I hate it when I call India and get someone named Joe and at the end of the conversation he says "The problem is your wireless router is not working properly."
