I think it's just "shortly after" at the moment.

+1 for Linux support! Looks like a fun game.

I have the same question. Seems like an interesting game.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the interest and I'd like nothing more than give you a release date on the Linux build. Unortunately I don't have one yet, but I can tell you 2 things:

1. It's definitely going to happen
2. Should be in the order of a few months time

Sorry to keep you waiting ;)

Bisher, thanks for the answer. Looking forward to the port :)

Great to see that a Linux Port is coming but not so great that the Linux Version of a Game comes out several Months later again. But maybe the Dev can give us a good Reason why it's on OSX on Launch but not on Linux.

Yeah. +1 for future Linux version. Thanks.

This game is damn simple but totally awesome.. Like silly physics, but soooo pretty.

As for the Linux version always last.. Apple has great development platform tools (I so anti-apple tho, that mindset apple gives off).. Linux is a little behind in some aspects on this, or at least messy.. yeah sure similarities in OpenGL but targeting Linux is a little more involved as you have many different distros configs and whatnot, and the less dependent on the underlying system the better. I'm a big fan of Linux and have been using it for years.. but even now it sometimes feels like nuts and bolts under the hood and some programs don't act the same from one binary to the next, some don't full screen properly and soo many different sound systems..

Linux would be the last OS I target as a developer just out of sheer market share alone. So if a developer decides to port to Linux, really what they are doing it to support Valves effort to deem Linux worthy of any targeting at all and to that effect the platform Valve has established.

Don't get me wrong.. Like I said I have used Linux, to name a few; Sabayon, Fendora, Ubuntu, Mint, and recently Debian. I just rather thank any developer who even glances our way rather then complain; we are always last or the developer doesn't really care. Like that’s really a great motivator. In any case I'm happy to see this come to Linux when it's finished. I need to reinstall Linux in fact but really want to avoid Ubuntu this time around.

To find out this game has a linux port in the works.. thank you! =)

It's great and fantastic and awesome that a Linux version is on its way, but currently, it's false advertisement, which is rude and dishonest :/ "Super Splatters | Steam | Windows, Mac, Linux Super Splatters is now available!"

Welp, this game is on sale, but I'm not going to buy it until the promised Linux support is released. :/

Hi, any news on linux port?
Bisher  [developer] Feb 12, 2014 @ 1:17am 
Hey guys,

Real sorry for the long delays but I finally have an update. We've never done linux development before so we're getting some help and we're finally getting close to ready.

If you really press me for a date I would say we really hope to release it on March. When exactly is hard to say, but we're feeling pretty confident it won't have to slip another time.
