What about a Linux version?

We're planning on doing a Linux version, but when it will happen will depend on when we can buy a machine to test it on, so I can't promise any release dates yet. Hopefully not too far in the future.
My name can go on the list for people interested in a Linux version. I won't be able to afford the game atm at the current price because I'm very limited for funds, but I'd certainly like to play in future when either the price drops or some of my pending freelance work starts properly paying out.

Not sure if you've considered this angle, but you won't necessarily have to by a new machine to test, as things like VirtualBox https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads will allow you to virtualise environments. The neat thing about virtualisation is that you can also run the game with different settings for CPU, RAM, video memory etc, which can be also be handy for testing minimum and recommended system specs.

Thanks for the VirtualBox suggestion. We'll definitely look into that and see what we can do.
I'm also very interested in a Linux-version. I also recommend looking into the VirtualBox-solution, but also you can always create a dual-boot-environment on your machine, to see how it runs on the "bare metal".

If you need Linux-testers, please let me know!

I like the developer. She seems nice. I never was that bothered about the game tbh but it seems ok. I hope they do good things in future.

Thanks guys. I'll let you know if we ever do a Linux release. :)
Hi Hannah,

between "We're planning on doing a Linux version" and "if we ever do a Linux release" is a huge difference, isn't it?

You may call me impertinent, but please state clearly for all interested people:

Linux version: yay or nay?

Nobody is going to bite your head off, if you say: "nay".
I just don't like to have false hopes. ;-)

In the early days, a Linux release looked almost certain. As time has passed, it's looking less and less financially viable. We're not ruling it out completely, but it's also not as likely as we felt it would be in the beginning.
Alright, got it - thank you for your open words!

This shows the value of waiting! No tux no bux! ;)
But... muh Ubuntu!
if your developing on Win10Pro, Win10pro has a Virtual machine build in called HyperV. Its more advanced than the VirtualBox.

+1 for GNU/Linux release. Support Freedom in IT.
@GenRabbit More advanced how? Faster? More features?

@SakyaMuni : More features. Its much more proffesionale. VirtualBox is fine, but HyperV looks to have much more bases covered.
