I had given up hope of seeing Gas Guzzlers Extreme on Linux, but it seems the developers have found a new porter.
On the 30th of August the developer simply said this:
QuoteWe negotiate with the new team about porting.
And then this:
QuoteIt's other porting company. They reviewed the code and they said it was all ok and that they will accept porting but since we do to console ports we first have to do some tasks related to all platforms including Linux. So we don't do double work (we and other company on Linux). Lots of stuff is shared on all platforms and right now we doing major engine redesign so we can more easily support Linux. Then other company will jump in if everything is ok.
We still have some time to wait, but it's good to see they haven't just given up at getting help to bring it to us. Another high quality racing game will be fantastic to have on Linux!
