Jets’n'Guns just arrived!

Well, me and one of the guys just spent some time out in the cold helping a truck driver unload boxes of Jets’n'Guns from the back of a truck. So, I guess this is the announcement to the blog that the game is in!

Jets’n'Guns is just like the old space shooters, like R-Type, that kind of thing, but with modern graphics, and a soundtrack that, well, Ive added the intro music to my playlist on my mp3 player!

We’ve also added an extra bonus over the Windows version, with PenguinPlay highscore tables. For those of you that don’t know what PenguinPlay is, it is our online game matchmaking and highscore service, designed to bring Linux gamers a little closer together.

In Jets’n'Guns you take the part of an ex war-hero with no wars left to fight. Hiring out your services for pay, you must fly your ship through over 40 levels of enemies, some in space, some around planets. Your ship is fully customisable, with dozens of weapons and upgrades. As the game progresses, a storyline unfolds, and by the end, you aren’t just a mercenary, you are saving the whole universe!

But I won’t spoil the ending for you. You’ll just have to play it to find out how it ends!

    I’d gladly get it but I’m a fan of digital distribution – don’t want anything getting mailed to me :-/

    I’d like to download it as well.
    I pre-ordered it on Tuxgames several months ago and the worst part is to wait for the game to arrive in my mailbox.

    For me it’s just the oposite. I hate digital distribution. I just want to have something physical. If I pay for something, I want to receive something which I can hold in my hands. I want to have a box with a disc and a manual inside.

    That’s why I love LGP. Their releases are perfect. A box with the text “Linux DVD-Rom” on it, inside a disc with Tux printed on it and a manual which I can read when lying in my bed.

    For me it’s very important to have something physical. I just don’t want to pay for only some ones and zeros. That’s why I hope LGP will keep on releasing physical discs. I won’t pay for digital distribution.

    I even prefer to go a local store and pay for my Linux distribution. Some distributions have those boxed versions and I love them. I don’t want to download and ISO and burn it to a disc. I want a big box which I can store in my book shelf. So nice to see all those boxes on the shelf. I’m proud I’ve got something to show when friends are coming by. I don’t have to boot my PC, evryone can just look at those boxes on the shelf, take them out, read the text on the back… I love boxed versions. Digital distribution, some gigabytes on my hard drive, a lot of ones and zeros? It’s worth nothing for me.

    I totally agree with Patrick (at least his first and third paragraph ;-)), though I have to say LGP is also not perfect – I’m still loving the old big boxes or at least slipcases – plain DVD cases look so extremely low-budget and have almost no added value. At least LGPs manuals are ok…
    Heck, I think I’ll buy the X3 Special Edition just because it’s in an Eurobox with extra stuff inside, though I’m not so excited about the genre (Hint: I’m still waiting for a demo ;-))

    (PS: My original post was way longer, but got lost due to a wrong code…)

    True, big boxes are even better. That’s why I love Special Editions. Releases like Age of Empires III for Windows are so nice: a nice big box with an art book, an audio CD and much more cool stuff inside.
