    I got the Penumbra collection a while ago when the price was $20 USD. Aside from some audio glitches (due to Ubuntu), it plays very well. I’m definitely looking forward to their next game.

    This sale is excellent news for those who don’t own the collection. Definitely a good trilogy of horror games.

    Black Plague is an amazing game and easily the best in the series. Don’t miss out on this if you haven’t played it!

    Thanks for the news. Now I just have to wait for Dell to release their Ubuntu Desktop and i’ll have the perfect present for my Dad.

    I had always planned on getting this game sooner or later… guess it will be sooner now! :)

    Wow, I was planning on getting the collection since they offer it, but never got around to it, I was actually gonna buy it this week… and then a lightning took out a cable node nearby, leaving me without Internet, Phone and TV for 3 days…

    So is this what they call “fortune”, eh?
    Hah, I would probably have bought it Friday (which happens to be today) and now I even saved 15 bucks. Usually I would have payed those 15 extra bucks gladly, just to support a nice company that supports Linux gaming, but this month i already spend quite a lot of money on more important stuff, so I couldn’t quite have afforded to put another 20 bucks into gaming, but 5 bucks… any time…

  6. darjeeling Says:

    I actually don’t even think that it’s that immoral to buy the game for the cheaper price, because last time when LGP did that sale, I had bought quite a few games 1 days before they announced it…
    So well.. give some, take some…

  7. Andre4s Says:

    Great! But will I get the Linux version or Max OS X version…

  8. Slacker Says:

    @Andre4s: For that price, it’s easy to get both, & still save $10. :)

  11. SlickMcRunfast Says:

    Just bought it from their store. Don’t for get to change the default drop down menu from windows to Linux.

    I played Overture for like 2 hours now and it’s pretty great. My only problem is that I end up checking every place 4 times, because i don’t want to miss out a thing.
