GNU/Linux Versions Of Grubby Games Products Are Being Phased Out ?

""Earlier this week, Big Fish Games, which bought out indie
developer Grubby Games last year, canceled affiliate sales for the
Linux versions of all games produced by Grubby Games. Their games
include The Amazing Brain Train, FizzBall, My Tribe, Professor
Fizzwizzle, and Professor Fizzwizzle and the Molten Mystery. I've
had to remove the Linux versions of these games from my site.
"I wrote to Big Fish Games to ask them about this move, and they
were not willing to reconsider. They want all sales of the games to
come through the Big Fish Games site, and right now they have no
plans to add a Linux section to their site.
"At the moment, the Linux versions are still available on the
Grubby Games site, but I don't know for how long. If what BFG told
me is true, then I suspect the Linux versions might be discontinued
soon (because they have no provision for Linux on their site)."
