This is awesome to see, people in the community have sent both Feral Interactive & Aspyr Media some little care packages full of treats.

Since Aspyr Media have yet to bring us the new Civilization game, it looks like Linux users have been guilt-tripping the porters into speeding up, or just sending them into a sugar coma.

So... this came in the mail this morning. Thank you, you lovely Linux people you. The guilt trip has been accepted. ;D #NomNomNom

The Aspyr Linux Team would like to offer their thanks. As would the majority of the company. We love us some @tiffstreats !

Who can forget Feral Interactive? The porting team that has been pushing out port after port!

Thanks @beefsack, we just received your tasty cupcakes! Here's a 'before' pic of our devs tucking in... we'll spare you the messy aftermath.

Good stuff community people, more of this please!

You would be surprised how much sending your thanks actually helps, people are too quick to send hate to developers who take extra time to get things done. Developers are human too remember.

Now this is something I like to see! Well done to whom ever thought this up!

Aspyr and Feral are like the patron saints of Linux gaming!

Thank you beefsack for making us all look better

liamdaweDevelopers are human too remember.

With how many ports Feral has been cranking out lately we may start to question this
neowiz73 27 October 2016 at 12:16 pm UTC
uh oh, that's a good idea sweeten them up so we can get that CivVI port sooner rather than later
but I really appreciate what Feral and Aspyr have done for Linux Gaming. this honestly wouldn't have been so exciting without them.
But the Linux devs working on the Unity engine like Na'Tasha Bard, along with the devs from the cryengine working on Star Citizen. To the devs like Yaakuro doing work on the UE4. To all the various indie devs that continually give Linux some love with so many interesting games.
This has made the leap from dual booting windows and Linux to being a 100% pure Linux user a fun and interesting time.

How often I (have to) say this, Developers are human too... Of course, they are working for companies which have to make money and which may make decision we don't like and/or don't understand. But they still are people, who hate to be flamed - and love cookies. Thanks to the cookie donors!

SalvatosThank you beefsack for making us all look better

Better to thank the awesome porters for giving us great games

Like said before also the teams working on the major gaming-engines in favor of linux have to be thanked.

I started some time after steamos was avaiable first and I know a lot of ppl are dissapointed of the little effort valve takes for this whole thing.
But am I wrong to say all this positive developement across the gaming-scene of linux started with steamos? Really dont know. Just started to use this awesome OS since then. 100%

Edit: not 100%. Stupid software for tax returns is my last reason for dual boot once a year

The feral guy on the left seems very focussed to be the first to grab as many cookies as he can .

Nice treat from beefsack ;-).

Without Valve's involvement, I would still run this other OS for gaming.
