+1 for linux version

Nobody should feel obligated to cater to Linux users. Only 1.5% or so of Steam users have Linux. It's not worth it

That number is growing, and the Humble Bundle shows one instance of where it looks to be worth it.

[edit] Looks like it being in the database was a bug (no longer there). Hope it comes to Linux

ElementX, but they did say please, so where is the harm in asking?

No harm, except there's a post in every game discussion
Entire graphics engine is written in DirectX 9. If they were looking to go cross-platform, they would have developed in OpenGL from the get-go.

Try WINE, it is your best option.

Could that possibly mean that there is an actual demand I wonder?

+1 also.
Guys, Linux native is not going to happen. They'd need OpenGL renderer. I tried to push them towards OpenGL, but they prefer DirectX. They've told me in a private email that their engine going forward is going to be DX10/DX11.

Another +1 for Linux.

I think, even if they don't want to spend the time writing an opengl renderer, they should at least make a proper winelib version they will support. It will be less work for them if making an opengl renderer while still making the game available to wider audiences.

Well, since everyone else is +1ing this... +1!!!

Maybe that will count for something coming from the guy who's released the community patch for this game... @IonFX I am a Linux dev... Just sayin' - I could help out with a port.
