Well, at least we have the 99th "retro inspired" whatever, don't we?

ZlopezGood to hear, but I'm still waiting for linux port of Total War: Warhammer II.

Strange that they didn't do that (yet). It seems Warhammer is selling good on Linux, they already had the first part running, ...

Eikebuy and continue Bear With Me (the free first episode really helped me decide on this one!), an adventure game being cute and dark at the same time.

Oh, man!
They've changed save game format so I cannot use my save from the free episode in the complete edition... :-/
Achievements are counting seperate as well...
Still, looking forward to playing more of this!

If I'd find the time, I would be
  • finishing on Algo Bot, a programming puzzle gaming starting easy and having a nice difficulty rampup, and/or
  • buy and continue Bear With Me (the free first episode really helped me decide on this one!), an adventure game being cute and dark at the same time.

If you want to see the rhythm-music platformer Runner3 on Linux, they need to see demand for it

TuxeeAs I said: Make an educated guess about possible sales, assess required manhours. Make a decision. Even if the sales don't cover the expenses entirely the gained experience could be worth it. Kickstarting might be a feasible alternative (though you already have to be clear about the effort required).

scaineThey already know what the effort is, particularly since they've supported us before. They just need to make a risk-based decision as to whether it's worth it (financially) or worthwhile (goodwill and ethically sound, supporting the little guy).

From what they're doing now, do you think
[ ] their former ports were a huge success or
[ ] their former ports were hardly worth the effort?

So long and thanks for all the fish!

Unforeseen Incidents, a classic-styled point & click inspired by X-Files and Lost will have full Linux support

I'm looking forward for this! Like the topic and the style, and the co-developer and publisher Application Systems Heidelberg did the same for Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet as well. (Just seeing it's for 50% at the moment.)

TuxeeThis seems to be most retarded approach to measure interest. I know others have done that before and accumulated hundreds of "+1" posts in Steam discussions. I wonder how many of these "+1" translate into purchases months or years after this discussion. There must be a more sane solution at hand, too - since there are so many Linux ports out there which came into being without that. Let me guess:

QuoteWe have to invest so many man hours into the port. We have to sell so and so many copies to break even. Looking at our past stats we can expect so and so many sales. If we sell less, it won't cost us a fortune, we can file it under experience gained.

Let me guess: The did look at their past sells and it was hardly worth it. So they wonder themselves how to judge. If you'Ve got a better solution, make sure to propose it to them. (I do like the idea of kickstarting a Linux version. It would make sure to only make it when there's a set mimimum of sells.)

GustyGhostTranslation: "If you peasants want us to extend some basic decency, you're going to have to get on your knees and beg for it."

1) Porting to Linux has nothing to do with decency. Developers need to eat, too.
2) Nobody's on his/her knees when telling that (s)he would buy something.
