After a successful Kickstarter that planned Linux support and now being released on Steam, the developer of Strength Of The SWORD ULTIMATE has issued a post about platforms no longer happening.

I spoke to the developer personally after a comment was posted on their Kickstarter a few days ago, noting that they were unsure if the Linux and Mac versions were going to happen. Since this was buried in a comment on a Kickstarter post, I wanted to find out what was going on. The developer explained the situation, so I advised them to be open and honest and make a proper announcement on it.

Now they have done so, in a larger post on Kickstarter and it's not a great situation. It's a case of a small two-person team biting off much more than they can chew. It goes over a bunch of issues they faced, along with funds getting low and a publisher leaving them "due to the delays", along with "personal and health issues" and so on. One of the developers is going to be moving onto other things too, so there will only be one person left to deal with everything.

The good news, is that they said refunds will be offered "as we get any revenue from the releases". So if you did back it on the Kickstarter back in 2015 it might be time to seek that refund.

Always a shame when things like this happen. Game development is a long and expensive thing to do, without seriously good planning so many things can easily go wrong.

It has been added to our dedicated Crowdfunding Page.

Quoting: Cyril
Quoting: TheSHEEEPDo you have any reason for your attitude or is this just the usual "capitalism bad!" rhetoric with no logic behind it whatsoever?

Same question for you, with your attitude, so do you think capitalism is good?
I'm neutral on the issue, really.
If I can make it work in my favor (or rather, to fulfill my goals & needs), it's good enough for me.
I see it as a tool, like I don't see either democracy or authoritarian or any other government form as good or bad.

Quoting: CyrilBut with your first description, you called it "common sense" and I really disagree with this, for me it's just a reaction of a system established, here the capitalism.
I see. Well, it might be both.
It is definitely common sense, as acting against what is logical in the system you live in would just be... well, whatever is the opposite of common sense.
But I can see how it might not be common sense in every system outside of capitalism.

Anyway, totally off topic, yeah.
