Sad news, the survival game 'Raft' that really caught my interest for doing something very different has decided to drop Linux support.
It's a real shame as it was the first survival game to come along for quite some time that properly interested me.
The developers didn't go into specifics as to why, other than being a small team and dealing with platform-specific issues is time consuming. They noted the change on their blog:
QuoteUnfortunately, we will no longer support Mac and Linux. Since we are three people, and we do not work on Linux or Mac, we don’t have the time or resources to develop to these platforms. As the game becomes more complex, more and more problems arise specifically on Mac and Linux, which means we would have to spend too much time fixing those problems. We’re really sorry about this, and we hope to be able to port to these platforms in the future! We hope you understand!
I asked for a bit more info on Twitter and they didn't give me any, other than being a small team and several bugs appearing.
I totally understand being a small team and dealing with multiple platforms can get interesting, but it's a shame for us to miss out. Hopefully they will change their mind in future.
