HARDWARE: Shipbreakers not on Linux in the near future

Posted by , | Views: 4,310
Recently I have received some bad news regarding HARDWARE: Shipbreakers, the free-to-play RTS we talked about recently.

According to Stephanie Palermo there will be no Linux support in HARDWARE: Shipbreakers, at least in the near future. This might change at some later time. On the other hand Mac user should rejoice, because support for this platform is already planned.

Relevant quote:
QuoteThanks for your interest in the game -- there are plans to have a Mac client for HARDWARE: Shipbreakers. Although we’d like to support all platforms, we have no current plans for a Linux client. Having said that, we may consider supporting Linux at a future time.

In the end, at least there is some hope.

Considering there never was any interest expressed, is this really surprising?

Well I understand why people was hoping for a Linux client, since they said mac was part of the plan. Well screw em not getting my $$$

Interest expressed by whom, developers or users?
Developers expressed some interest by including Linux in beta test forms and users... Planetary Annhilation have plenty of them and it supports Linux. Just saying.
Their answer might be disappointing, but lets face it, there are other games to chose from and for now, not supporting Linux puts the developers in disadvantage, not the users.

Ah okay, I just got impression that this was just based on some random inquiries without any actual encouragement from the developers at all. I will shut my mouth then.

In some article I have written about that, this article is a follow up.
I'm not saying that the chance for Linux client was big, but at that time it wasn't nonexistent either.
