I forecast a 500% increase in the sales of the linux version.

Yep, and I'm one of them Smile. Haven't played the game yet, but it looks excellent. Like a modern day myst/raven. Can't wait to play it.

For the record, even if this game was awful I probably still would have bought it just based on the fact that the indie developers are putting forth an effort to port it to Linux. Smile.

RE: Penumbra on Slashdot

Same here. Actually I tried penumbra overture a while back on Linux (but it seems the games have been ported again ? So maybe corrected ?). I must admit I didn't really enjoy it because I never found how to open the kind of hatch in the snow, and died of cold, after 5 minutes of game... And it was kinda laggy on my laptop at this time, with a crappy i945.
Anyway I'll try it again, and like kungfujesus even if I don't like it again, supporting Linux gaming is definitely worth 5$ Smile

RE: Penumbra on Slashdot

second game i actually bought, the first being mindrover, way back, just before loki called it quits.

if this were windows-only, i'd have pirated it off a torrent site, like most of my other games.

but since they've taken the trouble to port it to linux, i thought i could sure pay $5 :-)

RE: Penumbra on Slashdot

played the demo and loved it!

bought two of then... $5 dollars was too cheap for a game like that!

Oh.. and just make sure to disable any compositing. I was gertting half of my frame rate. The game works REALLY great on my archlinux box. May try on Ubuntu.
