Linux! Please!!!
I have a netbook with an intel gpu and is only good for 2d games like this! Please release for Linux! I have a few good 2d games already from steam, but I've been dying for an RPG.

+1 for a Linux version. I'd certainly buy it if a Linux port is scheduled. I won't buy and use WINE since I deem it risky.

Sorry but there are currently no plans to port the game to any additional platforms. We'd love to support as many platforms as possible (and are switching over to Unity for our next game for this very reason) but we can't afford to do any new ports of Precipice of Darkness 4.

Raven, yeah the wine, windows api, turns your linux box into a virus vulnerable system, like windows. Not worth the risk

rwb36, thank you for your informative and logical answer. But if I may give one last argument for making the change to linux: Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please !?!?!

Apparently it works under GNU/Linux systems.
WINE is free to use, and you will be safe unless for some reason you will decide to run Internet Exploder under WINE.

"Security

Because of Wine's ability to run Windows binary code, concerns have been raised over native Windows viruses and malware affecting Unix-like operating systems Wine can run much malware, but programs running in Wine are confined to the Current user's Privileges, restricting some undesirable consequences. This is one reason Wine should never be run as the superuser."

That basically means running steam under GNU/Linux system is safe.
And if I remember correctly, you have to enter superuser password before any change to the system is made, so programs run under WINE will not do any damage unless you will allow them to do so.

That's because Steam supports and official Linux version; no wine needed.

To anyone reading this, this is completely incorrect. ColDead, be very very careful when giving security advice on any OS you don't fully understand. Please remove the bottom paragraph in the previous post. Thank you.

I really hope that you are trolling, otherwise prove me that I'm wrong.
Playing steam games under WINE cannot harm your system unless developers would deliberately insert malicious code into their games which is very unlikely.
Alternatively you could setup VM using virtualbox, that would completly isolate virtual os from your system.

Prove you wrong? You mean, teach you linux.

I would be more than happy to talk about my favorite and only operating system, but I think you're more interested in protecting your ego; it'd only just turn into a debate, with you trying to "win" the debate. Be honest. You don't actually care about learning anything from me.

So, I'll end here with this: you're wrong about wine and unless you accept that I will not waste time again in this thread. Take care.

Sheesh, just get an ultra-cheap laptop solely for non-linux games and put Windows & PA4 on it. Or maybe get an Xbox 360 and play PA4 as an Indie Game.

Victar, I appreciate your logical advice. Yes, I could support Microsoft to increase the number of games available to me, but I think it'd be better to just support the games that already are; supporting Linux game developers will also increase the number of games available to me.

It would be more convincing if you had any argument about the danger of running Wine. All you do is pretend you are an expert on the subject, and we have to believe you? I think ColDead is right until you prove him wrong.

+1 on the Linux version
