    Everything at TuxGames is being sold for 13 dullars except the $50 Gift Voucher.

    Why only $13 now, or are you intending to pass-on the bad luck to the customer?

    Ever look at something and say “ah, that’s about to go tits up” ?

    Thanks for the heads up. Been a while since I bought any Linux games. Just bought all of the download ones. X2, X3, Ballistics, Sacred, Jets’n’guns, shadowgrounds and survivor.

    If I had a few more bucks to spare toward games I would have grabbed as many of the box + download games that are available. Honestly I hate boxed games now, to much clutter, better to just have them download and then backed up to two different mediums for storage.

    And their website appears down again… Shame as I was going originally going to buy both Shadowground games before their hard drive failure last year and subsequent backup failure shenanigans.

    Don’t want to be harsh, but you can get both Shadowground games in the upcoming humble bundle 3.
    Of course they’ll come in multiplatform and DRM-free flavour.

    Hmmmm, did anyone order a boxed game and actually receive it? Or at least a confirmation of the order by e-mail?
    Just getting worried because they also do not reply to e-mail :-(.

    I have the same problem DirtyCamper.

    I ordered games for about $100 on April 13, sent them an email on April 26 and i even queried lgpmichael (owner of LGP/Tuxgames) on IRC with this, no reply. Not even a confirmation mail, though i did get a mail from their “spamfilter” requiring me to “authenticate” the email paypal apparently sent them for my payment.

    I’m in a similar boat. One of the items I ordered was download-able. I got a email on 4/12 confirming my credit card and providing a download link. I emailed sales@ on 5/7 and have not received a reply. I sent a second email, this time to service@ and decided to see if others have had similar experiences. Now I am getting a little concerned.

    I don’t know if anyone else is still following this. I just heard back from LGP. They were backed up after the sale. They say they are working on getting the orders out and also working on their distribution to be more prepared in the future. I just thought I’d share since that’s all I wanted to hear. :-)
