Project Eternity - Linux from the start!

Posted by , | Views: 4,310

Project Eternity, a game we covered here before is a Kickstarter campaign from Obsidian to make a new RPG!

A recent update from Obsidian has removed the stretch goal for Linux thanks to them choosing Unity to make the game! Now that is some good news, glad i pledged now!

QuoteIn fact, our experience with Unity so far has made us confident enough that we have decided to remove Linux support from the stretch goals and just commit to providing a Linux version right here and now!

Glad they chose to go down this path instead. Having Linux join in at 2.2 million US dollars when Mac OS is in at 1.6 million US dollars and Windows at 1.1 million US dollars just seemed ever so slightly off. Double of what Windows needs, and 600 000 US dollars more than what Mac OS needs? Really? I am constantly told that once a game is out for Mac OS, the vast majority of the effort needed to put a game on Linux is already gone.
