Any chance of a GNU/Linux port?
I love Waves, but as daily GNU/Linux user I'd love to be able to play Waves without booting to Windows on my other hard drive. Are there any plans to port this to expand the player base?

Probably not, as the game didn't exactly break the sales records. And it's a shame considering that it doesn't work with Wine (at least when I tried).

Anyway, you might want to ask ask the developer directly via Twitter or e-mail, I don't think he reads these discussions very often.

Can UDK games be ported to Linux? I know that Unreal Engine 3 can, but I don't know if it's possible for the free version.

afaik the Unreal Engine (and thus UDK) runs just fine in Linux-powered systems.

The problem is that UDK has a auto-packaging program that doesn't seem to have a Linux option, and people aren't allowed to change UDK's code. Maybe there's a way that I don't know about, though.

I was just thinking the same, OP. No way in hell I'll spend $10 on this game..but if it had linux support...that would make it an easier decision.

A Linux version would be very appreciated.

A Linux version isn't an option under the UDK license. To compile a Linux compatible version would require a full Unreal 3 engine license.

Seriously? That seems really counter-intuitive... I'm sorry to hear about that. Thanks for responding, though! How much would it cost to get the required license?

More than Waves has made in it's lifetime and considering that I'm flat broke right now that's a huge amount of money.

gross, why would you get linux, linux is worse than Macs

it's a shame the license costs too much, this game would be great for linux / steamos

Well, a Windows license costs about 40 bucks.
