Eufloria HD never released on Steam but on PlayStation Vita instead
I am one of the lucky few that got the Eufloria HD Beta from the Humble Indie Bundle. The game is seems mostly ready for release and is a huge improvement over Eufloria Classic which is distributed by Steam (which also is not available for Mac or Linux). The only thing I would change from the Beta version is I wish it had the ability to change the resolution/size when running in windowed mode. Otherwise, this is something I would highly recommend to others running Steam on Mac/Linux to play ... if only they could.

My expectations for when I should be able to recommend Eufloria for other Linux gamers was set by the eufloria-game.com FAQ which states: "The full release of Eufloria HD for [PC, Mac and Linux] will be in late Summer 2013."

I get that schedules slip but I figured it would be released for Mac/Linux at least before 2014 (or there would be some updated ETA). What is worse is to get news that working on Mac/Linux became a second priority (or non-priority) in favor of a different platform that wasn't stated in the FAQ at all! So while there was a new Eufloria HD platform release that made it before 2014, it wasn't Mac/Linux but PlayStation Vita instead. I can't help but wonder if this is Omni Systems Limited's way of silently indicating that Eufloria for Mac/Linux is permanently shelved. At this point, I am kind of expecting Wii-U, PS4 or Xbox One releases to be next instead of ever seeing the release stated for summer 2013.

I guess what this means is if your a fan of Eufloria HD, tell anyone using Mac/Linux to buy a Vita, iPad or Android tablet since it seems that it will never actually be release for Mac/Linux except for limited distribution of the beta. :( Bottom line for me is none of my friends that are Mac/Linux users are interested in buying Vita or a tablet.

Heya, sorry to cause these concerns! We are simply slipping badly, due to the long delay of Eufloria Adventures, whih turned out a much bigger game than we anticipated. The Vita port was outsourced, so other than oversight has little impact on this matter.

Eufloria Adventures is in its final weeks. We are adding some tutorials and scripting, plus some visual flowishes. Other than that the game is done bar some user testing.

We have no other projects planned now, so we WILL get onto finishing the PC/Mac/Linux versions.

Also, people who have bought the original pc version will get the upgrade for free!
