Penumbra on Slashdot - Razalhague - 07-17-2009


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.

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

And another purchaser.
Two more and you'll have verified your 500% !

RE: Penumbra on Slashdot - DoubleU - 07-17-2009

Another one here + spammed all my friends about this game Smile

RE: Penumbra on Slashdot - ion - 07-17-2009

same bought and recommended to about 10 others, I think they bought

RE: Penumbra on Slashdot - TruthfulMushroom - 07-18-2009

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 - ffsdmad - 07-18-2009

Please add the possibility of payment via SMS

RE: Penumbra on Slashdot - armas - 07-18-2009

Just bought the collection too, have no idea what the games are about Smile (looking forward to trying it though). Thanks for supporting Linux!

RE: Penumbra on Slashdot - Adriano - 07-18-2009

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.
