November 5th, 2003 by Alkini

Linux Game Publishing sent this announcement out:

LGP is happy to announce that the first of our new range of games, NingPo MahJong has now gone gold.This means that it has been sent to the replicators for production. From this date we expect to have NingPo in stock in 2 weeks.

A demo is now available, for those that want to give it a try.

You cannot currently order NingPo MahJong from us until it is in stock, but please feel free to check out our resellers who may offer the ability to preorder it.

“Two weeks”, tee-hee. In any case, you can preorder NingPo from TuxGames

    I’m not complaining, as any game released for Linux is obviously a good thing. But shouldn’t Linux game developers focus on bringing games to the platform that aren’t already pretty well done by default KDE and Gnome distros? I mean, how many people actually bought Eric’s Ultimate Solitaire before it was $5 at EB? Heck, I didn’t even buy it then.

    NingPo is one of the better MahJong games that I’ve played. It’s a nice way to kill time every once in a while.

    what we need is a pinball game with a level editor.

    Why port this game? Its a waste of time. Why not get involved porting an upcoming release of a REAL game. Now we have another Mahjong game. Oh yay.

    Maybe if you pre-order from Tux games, you’ll get the game in 6 months. After the Savage debacle I had with them. I’m sticking with EB. At least with EB they keep you up to date when things go wrong.

    Too bad TuxGames forgets all the other free MJ games[1] out there, linux or otherwise. Unfortunately, we westerners aren’t going to pay for mahjong game unless it is strip mahjong[2] such as Super Real Mahjong for Neo Geo or Suchie-Pai from MyHarvest.

    BTW, for those into strip mahjong, don’t get the censored Hirameki Suchi-Pai dub!

    This game had a Linux version released by Pyrogon sevral months ago. I downloaded the beta, tried it, liked it, and then erased it vowing to only buy it if Tuxgames offered it (yes I preordered). So why did it take so long for LGP to release it? Why was there a beta for LGP after Pyrogon released the Linux version. I’m not a game developer (heck I couldn’t program my way out of a paper bag) but it seems to me if there was already a Linux version released it should have been a relatively simple matter to get it on cd.

    By the way… I want to say thanks to LGP. Some of us *do* care. Please don’t forget that.

    This game is very playable, as I still have the demo on my computer from a while back. It’s only $17.88 including shipping within the UK, that makes it £10.57. Not a lot. Stop moaning and buy it. BTW what’s up with the US dollar? It’s sinking. £1=$1.69, EURO1=$1.17 :s
