Shadowgrounds breathes fresh air into the action genre with explosive combat sequences, an innovative weapon upgrade system, and an intriguing storyline. The adrenaline-pumping, top-down gameplay and audiovisual fireworks set the scene for this new action experience which also includes single computer (split keyboard or joystick) co-op play.

UPDATE: Less than a day left, so get in before it is too late!

Wolfire's indie game pack, The Humble Indie Bundle is back with 5 games from Frozenbyte. As per usual there will be no DRM and we are humbled that Desura will again be helping to distribute the purchased games!

You can pay what you want and even donate part of it to help charity (Electronic Frontier Foundation  and Child's Play). The big titles included are:

All of the games but Jack Claw will be release for Linux, Mac and Windows. But the Jack Claw source code will be published, so there are good chances that it gets ported by the community.

Removes verbal blasphemy. Simply copy Data4.fbz into the installed folder.

I grabbed the demo for this and survivor off LGP before buying here. In both cases I get "Cannot open shared library /usr/lib/alsa-lib/". Ive removed vorbis in its lib, made sure everything is installed etc. If the demos worked I'd likely buy both games.

I bought the version from LGP. The game has several nasty bugs, with crashes already reported to LGP and never fixed. Is this version a "polished" version ? I was unable to finish the last level due to the crash I encounter just before fighting the final boss

Yes, this version is considerably better than the LGP one.

Shadowgrounds stopped working after updateing from Ubuntu 11.10 to Ubuntu 12.04.
It claims that it won't find "". But this library is indeed at "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/".

I can't get either Shadowgrounds or Shadowgrounds Survivor to un on my Ubuntu 12.04 system. I get:

~/desura/common/shadowgrounds$ ./shadowgrounds-bin
./shadowgrounds-bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

It works, if you follow this:

and install the missing 32bit-Libraries on a 64bit system.

It's not.

EDIT: just realised the update was probably never posted.

@turbo123321 Sounds odd. :/ Could try to reinstall? Please email us if that does not help either. Sorry for the inconvenience.

@shortsjim63_ray Thanks for your support! We really enjoyed working with Wii U, so perhaps at some point. :) No plans at the moment though.

@turbo123321 So far we've not managed to locate the source of the problem, but we're looking into this. More info:

@turbo123321 Sorry about this. Restarting the level should fix this. Please email support[at]frozenbyte[dot]com if you have more questions.
