Linux version
I'm astonished to find that there's a Windows version and a Macintosh version but I'm unable to find it available for Linux. Are there any plans to make it available for the Linux platform, considering it's already available on another POSIX platform (Macintosh), I'm not sure there would be too much difficulty with making it available.

I would buy this game if it had a linux version. I doubt I will buy it to play in WINE.
Yeah, I've not liked playing Steam games in WINE.. so I'm in agreement with you. I CAN'T buy this stuff unless it's on Linux, not just on principle--I just can't. I don't run Windows anywhere and I don't really like running stuff in WINE.

Paradox said that as much as possible they try to provide Linux version and if a game is ported to Mac, they will likely make a Linux version too. From what I understood every Paradox developed game will run on Linux (CK2 already, EU4 will be) and they are trying to do the same with their published game.

You rock! Thank you for posting that. I'll believe it when I see it (I've been burned many times like this) but it does at least put it out there that they have intentions, at least.

I will buy this game if/when a native linux version is available (and price is about the same).

I'm sure my 20 bucks are not a really big incentive, but I'm also sure there are more Linux users like me, just not posting in this thread.

I loved CiM1 (and I do prefer CiM1 cities over CiM2 "dynamic" cities), but I don't feel like booting into windows or setting up wine just to play a game.

I'd love to see a linux version as well :)

I payed for the game already but I would play it in my Ubuntu which is my first OS. Please port it to Linux... probably you will get propaganda with this action.

¡We want CiM2 in Linux!

Thanks 8-)
Join us, Paradox. Together, as Linux users, we can rule the Internet! It is your destiny!

I add my voice to this. I'm a dual OS user but now that I have Steam on Linux it's a big tick for me to have a game that runs on Kubuntu.

+1 for linux support. I no more use windows, not even for games and as the game seems to not save under wine, I have to wait for native linux version before buying it.
I'm not just not sure why it wasn't already done, if there's a Macintosh version. That's part of the reason why I feel somewhat skeptical of a Linux release--it should have been done in parallel with the Mac version.

If they do not port this to Linux, CIM2 is last one i'm ever buying.

Definitely a game I'd pick up if there were Linux support.

Still no response from the devs :'(

They are probably considering it, given that their publisher, Paradox, seems to be pretty supportive of Linux ports. There might be technical issues, it seems the game was built on a version of Unity without Linux support and the port to a newer version might not be feasible with the small developer team. Would be hard to give an answer either way without investigating it a bit probably.
