I am the owner of GamingOnLinux. After discovering Linux back in the days of Mandrake in 2003, I constantly came back to check on the progress of Linux until Ubuntu appeared on the scene and it helped me to really love it. You can reach me easily by emailing GamingOnLinux directly.

Quoting: ellie_feralIt's playable, but that doesn't mean it's releasable. Mysterious, right?
Are you seriously trying to tell me that the game will not be in a releasable state one day before its release? When did you plan to finish the port, one minute before release?
Sorry, not buying that, and this is why I spoke about the difficulties of marketing: You can't do it right for everyone,but it is very easy to bork it in general.

Correct: devs can't always release a game the second it's playable. The process just isn't that simple. You're gonna have to trust us on that; we've been doing this for a while.

It seems with feral that the ritual has to happen in the evening after a busy Thursday. The idol should appear in the feral circler of transfer, and then quickly in your steam library (depending of the power of the elements from your master ISP)

Quoting: chancho_zombieat nuuvem.com there is a carnival sale for south america for 41 reales (14 usd).
Shows $23.99 for me, but Feral wouldn't get a cent. I'm hoping they'll have a 50% off launch sale in their own store and Steam like they did with Hitman.

you need to be in South America, it checks your IP, and displays the offers based on your region. It's pointless if you don't live in South America because you won't be able to play it, it's region-locked. I don't know about if feral won't get a cent, they do sell linux keys, they have the linux icon unlike other stores that don't have it. I'll wait a couple of days to see if they update the page to display the linux icon.

They seem like a legit key reseller, but as far as I understand, key resellers sell pre-generated keys, and usually these keys register as Windows sales. In addition to a Linux icon, you probably need to check if they add Feral as a publisher. Currently they only list Deep Silver. Or you could just mail their support and ask.

Personally I like to make extra sure what little money I spend supports Linux gaming, but the choice is yours and I'm not telling you to boycott nuuvem.com or anything. Let's hope the game is worth the wait. :)

Quoting: TobiSGDIf it is good enough for streaming it is good enough for playing. They should just release it instead of baiting people that are waiting eagerly for the port.

I generally agree with the basic statement here. More importantly I really appreciate that they give the developers enough time to complete the project. What would be bad would be 90% complete and pushed out the door to meet the unrealistic deadline (not speaking from experience ;) )

Also, if they say this time that they can release in t-1 days, next time they scramble and people may expect t-2, which goes back to my previous comment about quality vs. realistic deadlines. @ellie_feral +1!

Allll that jazz to say that I appreciate their enthusiasm to stay after work into the evening to interact with the community. Many others just want to, and perhaps rightfully so, go home and press the shiny "release" button the following morning : ) Cheers --

Quoting: tuubiI'll be there to annoyingly beg for a launch discount. ;)

Please do! :)
And I just did. Their answer:
QuoteDiRT Rally is £39.99 on Steam right now. No news on possible launch discounts!
We'll just have to wait and see.
