Shadowgrounds Survivor is coming to Linux

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

For several months, LGP has been working behind the scenes with Finnish developer Igios to bring you Shadowgrounds Survivor, sequel to the award-winning Shadowgrounds.

Shadowgrounds is a third person sci-fi RPG shooter set in the late 21st century. An alien race has devastated the colony on Ganymede, leaving few survivors. The story picks up a few hours after the attack, with you playing a lone survivor struggling to survive.

The game is the first commercial game on Linux to take advantage of Nvidia’s PhysX engine, giving the ability to do the high intensity number crunching needed for physics calculations on the graphics card, leading to a highly realistic and deformable environment.

The game has been in internal testing at LGP for several months and is now considered  ready for beta. We will be making the announcement on our main website on how to apply for the Beta within the next few hours.

Shadowgrounds Survivor was originally developed for Windows by FrozenByte, a Helsinki based development company.
