Topware announced on Steam:
QuoteDear players,

After short and fruitful Beta Test, we are presenting Linux Wine port of the game.

Thank You very much to all players who took part in Beta!
All reported bugs was fixed, but if You still have problem with Linux port, please, report it on discussion forum.
Alt+Tab might produce undesired behavior on some systems, beware.

Thank You and have a good play!


One particular Linux player isn't happy though, as apparently Topware haven't made the source code to the version of Wine they use available. I'm not entirely sure on the proper procedure here, so I will leave it up to you guys in the comments to deal with that.

About the game
Set during the main conflict of the movie, “Iron Sky: Invasion” puts players in the cockpit of an advanced new starfighter, to test his or her might, flight and dogfighting skills against the forthcoming Blitzkrieg-on-high. The main objectives are to defend Earth and its space installations from enemy attacks, blast as many Nazi ships into oblivion as humanly possible, collect and skillfully manage necessary resources, and make it alive to the final confrontation… where the ultimate secret weapon of the Fourth Reich awaits those foolishly brave enough to take up the hammer and chisel of heroism and attempt to carve their names onto the tablets of history.

Can't watch the mrdeathjr's video from Russia and Germany, too. Is it available at least somewhere? I think it would be better to upload it to another, less restrictive hosting. Or just torrent it.

Blocked in France too. Youtube is great, right? Too bad people generally don’t have high enough upload bw to create a great P2P video streaming network.

Thanks for users for advise

Similar situation occurs for lego the movie where cinematics can block video in all countries if pass cinematics, video can pass without problem

Curiosly pass still dont have any profit from channel, in my case my channel dont have any profit (this is usefull for posible shows songs in audio without troubles)

And now them put block related with some songs one is this

Take Me To Heaven - Laibach: 11:34 - 15:06 and this Kameraden, wir kehren Heim! - Laibach: 46:22 - 47:54

Other issue stay in apparently begin content in 1:38 - 2:10

But affect australia and other close territories case new zeland, fiji, salomon islands, cook islands and others

In this moment stay edit for remove this problematic songs, hopefully youtube leave make this edit without issues

Update

Video is visible again, only 13 countries cant see but them countries is australia and closer islands (europe dont appear blocked)

^_^

Pffft, foreigners always trying to watch videos on OUR 'global' Internet!

Kidding of course, this is fucking ridiculous, what copyright is infringed by showing a trailer? Absolutely ridiculous.

I really don't see why other companies aren't following Topware's lead on this. Minimal cost so even if the game sells poorly they will probably still make money. And you can get the deluxe edition for $5. I'll get it just to support what they are doing.

I'm glad to see Wine used to wrap more older games like this, but I get really annoyed when GPL and LGPL licenses are treated like an Expat license. It's great to see people using free software projects. It's not good to see someone take the hard work of other people and not respect licensing terms. It's a case of copyright infringement.

In this particular instance, I think it *should* be reasonably straightforward for the company to come into compliance.
