I was shared an email yesterday from a conversation with the developers of futuristic racer 'Redout' [Steam, Official Site]. The developers are willing to do a Linux version, if there's enough interest.

It looks damn near incredible and certainly did remind me of WipeOut, a game I wasted hours and probably entire days of my life in when I was younger.

From the email:
QuoteThanks for asking. Not for now, as we are focusing on new content and consoles porting!

But again, if the interest is there, we’ll definitely do it next year.

So far, honestly, the interest has been pretty limited :(

They aren't wrong though, so far not many people have asked about it.

If you would honestly buy it then you can show your support for it by saying so in this Steam post. Please don't just post "+1" as that's not helpful and considered spam. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Linux very much needs it's own "F-Zero".

I don’t get these developers/publishers who wait for people to tell them they want a linux version. They’ll sell 1 or 2% for Linux like everybody else…

Very true. Unfortunately it's a very common way of thinking. All our customers use Windows therefore we only support Windows therefore all our customers use Windows. It's a circle that's not easy to break.

I would insta-buy this as I am a big fan of F-Zero and Wipeout.

There's Super Pilot:
https://dopagames.itch.io/superpilot

They've just been Greenlit on Steam. They don't have a Linux port yet, but they're not against it. They just want to finish the game first, since they're still adding new features.

Although they haven't made any promise, I've tried a Linux build and it worked pretty well (they're friends of mine ;)). So at least, they're not going into technical issues when they'll have the manpower to support a Linux port.

Edit: They've added a bunch of stuff since this video: tubes, pipes, boost pads, better AI & new tracks!

Simple because when you're a very small team, dealing with just the Windows bugs can be very difficult, on top of improving the game even more. I am seeing that frequently.

For bigger teams, it's another story...
