The inevitable Linux thread
You know how it goes; hipsters like myself get interested in a game, see that it's sadly not available for Linux, start a thread requesting it :) Here's that thread!

Hi! We were waiting for you~

The good news is: we plan on releasing the game on Linux, as soon as we can make it work on that platform.

The slightly less good news is: there is no ETA on that right now.

Two of the main aspects of the game - it's audio quality, and the compatibility with screen reading software which make it accessible to blind and visually impaired players - require us to add, update or recompile parts of the code in a platform-specific way. That means additional work, test and debug to make sure it works nicely on Linux (which is usually not a "one size fits all" environment). This is slightly out of the realm of a regular Linux port for a Unity game, which already requires more than a "click here to compile on Linux", as you may already know :P

In short:
-Thanks for the request!
-It's coming soon(ish?), if we can make it work.
-Unless it's impossibly broken and requires an amount of work we definitely can't provide, it will be released for Linux with as many of the important features as we can possibly deliver.

Have a nice day!
