Shadowgrounds Survivor tells the story of three survivors who join forces with the last remaining human resistance in the heated battle against the ongoing alien onslaught. The acclaimed atmosphere and gameplay mechanics of the original Shadowgrounds make a triumphant return armed with a new feature set!

  • 3 playable characters, each with impressive new tactics
  • RPG-like upgrade system for weapons and characters; including special attacks such as the all-engrossing Napalm Flame and the mighty Brute Slayer.
  • New gameplay features such as the Sentry Turret and the powerful Mech!
  • Campaign mode short of filler and full of action, running parallel to the Shadowgrounds story and expanding it to new locations, including snow and ice environments, gritty sewers and the suffering New Atlantis colony
  • Survival mode where the player is pitted against hordes of alien monsters - the clock is ticking and they just keep on coming!
  • New graphics enhancements, including raging snowstorm effects, new weapon effects and much more!
  • Integrated physics that bring the world alive with hundreds of physics objects, taking the destruction to the next level
  • New original soundtrack composed by praised Shadowgrounds composer Ari Pulkkinen
  • On-disc Editor tools, sample missions and modding Wiki for easy modding; take part in the Shadowgrounds mod community and create mods for the Campaign or the Survival mode - or just enjoy the results of others!

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.

This and the original shadowgrounds plays great for about 5 mins..then it gets slow. Like really slow. Im running Peppermint OS Three, on a AMD phenom 2 six core, with 16gigs ram, with an ATI Radeon 4670 1gig video card. No idea why this game slows down.

Talk to them about it, they have probably just forgotten about it.

This game is quite awesome. Very much reminds me of the old Alien Breed for the Amiga. Lot's of nice touches like skills and weapon upgrades, along with survival modes and 3 different characters. Only drawbacks: Sound drops out occasionally in the linux version, and I can't seem to get it to work with a gamepad.

The sound is a bit better for me since they released an update.
