After some internal discussion, we have decided to try something new, namely microblogging. Initially we are just testing it to see how much it will be used, but we will make it permanent if it proves successful. It is meant as a simple means to send quick messages to LGP and get quick information about releases, announcements and patches.

We will also be running some competitions where you will get a chance to win a download of an LGP game, as well as some small ones now and then where we will hand out free game rentals.

As the free and open source software loving company we are, we use identi.ca which runs on the AGPLd status.net microblogging platform. But for those that prefer twitter, our account is mirrored there as well.

So follow us, @LGP on identi.ca or @L_G_P on twitter. See you there.

If you have any input, suggestions or questions for me, feel free to ask them here in the comments, on IRC (Zero_Dogg in #lgp on irc.freenode.net), via identi.ca/twitter or via e-mail (to eskild at the domain linuxgamepublishing dot com).

    My collection of Linux Games is growing bigger. This is the collection of Linux Games I currently have:
    I like to see all of those penguins next to each other, although there are also a few Windows Games on the picture.

      Why do you have several copies of each games? Just asking.

        Because I want to support Linux Gaming. I want to see more games being released for Linux, so I want LGP to have good sales, so they’ll be able to bring more games to Linux and I want LGP to have enough money to buy the rights to bring some high profile games to Linux. Better sales for LGP will bring more and better games (high profile games) to Linux. I’ve got the money to buy several copies of each game, so I’m willing to buy several copies to support Linux Gaming.

    Hm, I just listened to the Deus Ex main theme, then I got kind of sad because Deus Ex was the game on whichs port Loki Games worked when they filed for bankruptcy. And just after the minute of silence in memory of Loki, I wondered why LGP never picked up on the port of Deus Ex, where Loki had left off. It’s definitely one of the big milestones in the gaming history. Nowadays I’d guess that it’s just too old to be ported (I’d buy it none the less. :P), but back when LGP was founded and already picked up that other former Loki deal, why not also Deus Ex?

    • We tried, we tried to pick up the whole lot but the liquidators *sucked*. We then went to all the individual companies where we could find a contact. Remember back then we were new and didn’t really have many contacts, and we certainly didn’t have the Loki rolodex available, so we were just stabbing in the dark. We got what we could and then moved on to other things

    Hm, I see, I thought that it might have been like that, but then on the other hand it thought that they might have been more cooperative, after all you’re all fighting for the same cause.
