Setting the record straight about Heroes of Forevia

By - | Views: 4,316
Anthony Bertolo, lead developer for Heroes of Forevia dropped by the comment thread about Kickstarter games earlier to set the record straight about their intentions for a Linux port.

QuoteHi guys,

I'm actually the lead developer for heroes of forevia. I know on the surface asking for double the pledge for a Linux port is excessive but there are two caveats to that:

A) $10,000 is just the amount we are looking for to shore things up. We've spent more than that ourselves in the last year on art and other assets for the game.

B) We are going to push for a Linux port regardless of the final pledge amount. Since we've spent countless hours programming already, it's more of a time issue getting what we have over to the right platform. $10k is the price tag to have that done by a 3rd party. We can do it ourselves, it's just that without the extra cash we can't list it as a sure thing to be ready when the Mac / PC version is.

Just think of it this way: Wasteland 2 is asking for an extra $500k to do their Linux port (which is reasonable depending on the engine technology they plan to use). We're just asking for enough bread and water to make it happen, indie style. (btw the devs at inxile are pretty cool people, they've backed or project as well).

You guys can drill us via email as well (we don't mind). Mine is Anthony at popflame.com


He later returned to mention that at launch there will also be a Google NaCl port of the game. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.
