Not sure how to post this.. or even IF I should.. Mods?

So, there's a moderator on a Steam discussion, who represents a developer, and they are expressing very warm messages towards Linux gamers.

The discussion is part of a community hub for a game that is not yet out, but very much so in active development. The game is currently enjoying an extremely successful kickstarter, the game has raised (at time of writing) over 750% of their original funding goal. An insane result for a kickstarter project, and that funding level has increased by a few hundred % in the last couple of days, and they still have a fortnight to go before the kickstarter is finished. They have broken the $1,000,000USD barrier, and the pledges don't seem to be slowing down.

The game however, currently, is only planning a Windows release. So a fellow penguin inquired about whether the game will be coming to Linux or not. The moderator said 'that isn't planned but post your interest here and I'll relay it to all the devs!'. Since then a few dozen people have expressed interest, and the moderator has regularly returned to leave more messages, and is keeping a running tally of the number of unique posts from interested Linux gamers to relay back to the developers.

This game is the kinda game that could fly under the radar due to it's content, and I imagine there would have to be at least some Linux gamers here would like the chance to express their interest in getting a native Linux port of the game while it's still in development (developed with UE4) and there's a chance of it happening.

The game is a bit like a cross between Mass Effect with XCOM, RPG elements mixed with top down tactical turn based combat .. which on it's own wouldn't make it difficult to decide whether or not to post a link to it here.

The only issue is.. it's also a hardcore adult rated porn game..

Sooo... um... Moderators? Help?

Can I say the name of the game?

It's been the #2 trending project on Kicktraq for a while if anyone wants to take a look.

I don't see any reason not to name and link it. There's a difference between talking about a game and posting the contents of it for all to see. Adult content warning:

Looking over our posting rules, I can see why it can be confusing with the "No porn links, zero tolerance on that again. We have people of all ages visiting and chatting.". Still, it's a game and as long as fair warning is given then that's okay. To be honest, if a game really is full-on adult, it should be down to who hosts the pages to ensure people are the right age to see it, not us.
