After a successful crowdfunding campaign, it looks like Hotel Magnate will actually be coming to Linux. A few days ago their Kickstarter campaign ended, with over $70K Australian Dollars pulled in from over a thousand backers.

I hadn't seen any notice of Linux support on the Kickstarter campaign, so it's not one mentioned here at GamingOnLinux previously. However, when it appeared on Steam it actually had a Linux system requirements section filled out to indicate it was planned.

When speaking to the developer over email, Bastion Interactive, they told me a Linux version is actually planned but it won't be during Early Access. Great news! They've actually teamed up with developer and publisher Crytivo to help out. Considering The Universim from Crytivo works great on Linux, that's a good sign too.

You can see more on the finished Kickstarter or Steam.

It kind of blows away my Minecraft hotel.

Could this be the modern Sim Tower remake we've been waiting for?
