    because it is a non LGP game.
    Bullshit, we want Robin Hood available on TuxGames ! This is a case of monopoly….

    Wtf? Where’s the press release saying ‘we won’t carry Robin Hood’? Since when are NeverWinter Nights or Quake* LGP games?

    Maybe the ‘problem’ is that ‘gone gold’ means sent to the press, not shipped to the stores. Maybe they’ll carry it when they can get it.

    … if they want to follow the rules Tuxgames is imposing on their games. They are rather harsh according to me, but it seems some people find them fair… [br] You can read this on the ‘Game Makers’ page @ tuxgames:

    [i]Tux Games will take a 20% share of the list price of the item. You will be expected to pay for all shipping costs. Tux Games will reimburse your shipping costs at a rate agreed in advance. You will be responsible for any costs associated with issuing replacement items.[/i]

    On the other hand, it can be that spellbound gets a special contract (given the fact that they have some more games to come for Linux).

    I find their site to be slow 80% of the time. I find their prices too high and I find their website to look like it was designed by a 10 yr old. Most game companies have a store you can order from directly.

    I hope they can provide a demo for this to get a feel for the gameplay. Is it an RPG w/ player stats or just a tactical game like commandos?
