Server Maintenance
In order to address some ongoing network issues we will be performing a hardware migration on some of our servers during the course of this week. Please note that our website and other services will experience downtime during this migration which could last a day or two. We're sorry to interfere with your gaming, be assured it's for the long-term good and we'll try get it done as quickly as we can!

The issue with the encryption certificate is now resolved, and all customers can now access the secure areas of the site without browser warnings. We continue to resolve further issues, and get things back to normal.

Downtime
We have rebuilt the system after the extended downtime, and are recovering subsystems right now. We will be posting a more detailed report on the blog as soon as we get the chance. However please do bear with us as we are still recovering damaged sections of the company. Ordering is available, and orders will ship, we are aware the SSL cert has expired, this does not affect your security, and we will resolve it shortly.

Is grateful to Slashdot for finally noticing that LGP exists, after militantly ignoring any game release we have made for the last 5 years, as soon as reports of our death come through, we get a front page story. Slashdot - Your support of Linux is inspirational.
For others who wonder, we are very much alive. We have had a couple of staffing issues on the admin side of things, which explains most of our silence, but work is progressing on more than one unannounced title. We will offer further updates as and when there is news to update you with.

 
Thu, December 3 2009
Today we have permanently reduced the price of all of our games more than one year old by 10%. This includes favorites such as Majesty, Postal 2 and Cold War. The exception is X2: The Threat, as we just dropped the price of that by 30% a few weeks ago!
 
Fri, October 16 2009
Majesty has now been added to our growing list of downloadable games. A number of our resellers will shortly be providing download access to the game, where you will be able to rent or buy the download!

It is with regret that we announce the discontinuation of support for all PPC versions of all Linux games, effective immediately.

Our apologies go out to our few remaining PPC customers.

After a great deal of demand from our customers, LGP is announcing the immediate availability of downloadable games to our resellers. This facility will allow any LGP reseller to sell downloadable copies of several of our games to the public.

LGP will NOT be selling downloadable games directly, but we expect that a number of our resellers (who were notified and provided specifications several weeks ago) will be launching download availability in the coming days.
Initially, Sacred: Gold Edition, X3: Reunion, and Jets'n'Guns will be available, with more games being added over time.
In addition, these games will also be available for rental, either for 1 week or 1 month, via those resellers that choose to offer that facility. Rental games are exactly the same as the full versions of the games, but with access keys that require internet access, and expire after a period of time after they are first activated.

Today is a day that we at LGP have worked towards for over two years. We are very excited to announce the launch of LGP's new site, PenguinPlay, a Multiplayer matchmaker for Linux.

As usual, the prize draw will be for a signed copy of the games. To make your guess send an email to competition@linuxgamepublishing.com.
People said that we made the clues for Disciples 2 far too easy, so your clues for these games are:

1 ) One game is a racing game, the other has cars but isnt about racing.
2 ) One was released in the US towards the end of 2001, the other was released much more recently.
3 ) Both games were made by the same European developer.

Good luck!

As nobody guessed the Majesty title, we will give some clues this time:

1 ) The title has 3 words and one number
2 ) The Windows release date was in the Q1 2002

Good luck!
