Sacred Gold On Linux Has Gone Gold
Phoronix: Sacred Gold On Linux Has Gone Gold
It took longer than expected, but Linux Game Publishing is now prepared to ship Sacred Gold. The description of this game is below.In his fortress of Shaddar-Nur, the necromancer Shaddar, a pariah of the Band of Mages from Mystdale Castle, plans his triumphant return to the world of Ancaria...
This looks like quite an interesting and well developed game. $38 (£27) is a hell of a deal too.
Just a side note, Jets N Guns is done, I got it for Linux last week. Really, really fun SHMUP.
why would i buy this when the Good Old Games version comes:
> with no DRM
> at a price of $9.99
don't get me wrong, i love that they have done this, but where is the value?
Really good, not the game, but the coming of Linux version of games.
Anyway Financing LGP is not a bad idea.
The GoG version is a WINDOWS version and you're buying it as such.

I'm not going to twist people's arms to go and buy it (partly because I've a relationship with LGP (Indicated by the tag on my handle here...)) but in the same breath, I'd be disinclined to give the wrong message just because "it's cheaper".
One of the things everyone has to realize is that as long as you keep equating what is a new title on Linux with "an old title", which might be the case on Windows, you're going to be waiting a LONG time for Linux specific titles unless they're indie stuff like Caster.
Indie games is where it's at anyway, a lot of mainstream games are boring. Just the same old brown coloured shooters with a mediocre story line that cost ~£30 for 10-15 hours of so called fun.
