: American has answered why Linux was a stretch goal read more here
I'm really not sure if this is good news or not considering how the developers of Akaneiro: Demon Hunters announced they will support Linux
QuoteLinux port is getting moved into the main goals, inside the 200k campaign target. We're doing this because so many Linux people seem... unclear on the concept of, "prove your desire by helping us hit our Stretch Goal." We're hearing a lot of, "why should I commit if I don't know you're going to make it." Fine. Help us hit 200k and we'll give you a Linux client. Fair deal? If so, let's see some support! Seriously, help me... help you. Come on Linux people!!!
Why should we seriously have to prove our desire and make peoploe reach stupid stretch goals? Stretch goals for Linux is really starting to bug me more and more. I know we don't have a massive user base compared with Windows but stuff like that makes us look worthless.
They have 11 days left to hit $200,000 and sitting on just under $100,000 so it sounds like a desperate move to generate the money they want rather than properly supporting Linux.
Still the game looks good, pitty they have to spoil it like that though.
