Support me on Patreon to keep GamingOnLinux (and me) alive.
Another time to show support for a game to come to Linux, if you would buy it that is. The developer of Inner Voices [Steam, Official Site] has stated with enough support they will bring it to Linux.

Spooky! It certainly has my interest.

In this post asking for feedback on various things, Linux users requested Linux support to which the developer replied with:
QuoteHeyah Penguin! Glad to have you on board!
Well, it is not as easy as people think. Yes, hitting another "export" button is one step of the process, but there are many more. I can explain the whole operation if you insist, but it'll be a wall a text.
Long story short - if enough people would request a Linux version - we'll get busy right away
I love the positivity and additionally once another Linux gamer said they would buy it, they developer replied again with:
QuoteYou had my curiosity, but now you have my attention
Bring more people and the odds shall rise! >

Features
  • Non-LINEAR storyline.
  • Intriguing, disquieting gameplay due to the ever-changing randomized maze.
  • Unique, dark atmosphere inspired by the works of H.P.Lovecraft, E.A.Poe and S.King.
  • An amazing experience thanks to the moody soundtrack and audio design
  • Addictive story full of plot twists and choices that may lead you to one of 5 different ending
  • A possibility of enjoying the game in 4 different cinematic languages: English, Polish, Turkish and Russian
  • Engaging puzzles with different levels of complexity

Remember though, don't just say you will buy it if you don't actually plan to. This inflates our numbers and doesn't help.

Made my wishes known on their forum. Hopefully enough people want it.

Quoteif enough people would request a Linux version

Those are the "suckiest" reasons. Enough? What is enough? Only a fraction of the people ever get into a place to request anything. An average "request" thread doesn't even get enough attention to cover the cost of a tweet, let alone a port. It's basically one of those easily made statements that can only lead to no.

Doesn't hurt to head over and at least say +1 let alone post your reasons for wanting it on Linux. The developer on the forums has been nothing but kind and helpful so far. Do I wish games would just come on over to Linux ? Yep I sure do but at the moment we have to work for them. Your options are to fight and claw for the games you want or to buy it and play it on Windows. Hopefully one day it changes.

Do you know what it can working in this case?
Maybe this developer (one of few) collect Linux request and in next he asking about permission his boss or ask about this game publisher. If he show him many Linux request, he can make agree for Linux version - but this is only my hypothesis.

If they're not serious enough to just build for all platforms from the get-go, then they won't be serious about supporting Linux regardless of how many +1's are thrown in their faces. Game buyers should only have to pay with money, not with additional e-begging points.

nothing like spamming a +1 and then not buying the game

I like very much what I'm seeing, but then, I read "rogue-like"... :-/
May I have Amnesia-like instead?!?

But that's the whole trick. They won't ever get enough responses in those threads for a "boss" or "publisher" to even consider it.
