"Born out of the demise of Loki Software in 2001 was
Linux Game Publishing, but now a decade later the fate of LGP is
not looking good for the company that has ported about two dozen
game titles to Linux.
"The newest titles to have come out of Linux Game Publishing
were Shadowgrounds and Shadowgrounds: Survivor, which were actually
ported by IGIOS and then just published by LGP. These action games
were supposed to come in 2008 but then challenged by delays and it
was not until the second half of 2009 that Linux Game Publishing
was finally mastering the copies. Aside from the Shadowgrounds
games that were developed by Frozenbyte, LGP's other 2009 titles
that made it out were Jets 'n' Guns and Sacred: Gold. Aside from
the many niche titles that LGP has ported, the most well known
games they have ported to Linux have been Cold War, X2: The Threat,
and X3: Reunion."
