CimerydI honestly thought this was dead for a while. I'm a backer, and after four years I'm mildly shocked this is being released. Really glad to see them living up to their promise and vision.

Nice I wonder if they wrote whatever I send them to a star
btw I am a backer too but didnt receive a key yet, did you get one?

Ah, the star thing. Forgot about that, excited to see it.

Apparently they are sending keys by hand, so it could take a day for everyone to get one. If we've waited four years, what's another day?

QuoteThroughout the day we will send you all the keys so that all of you can play. It will be a slow process, as we do it by hand and we want to have control of all the keys so that none are misplaced and to solve possible problems that may occur.

Too bad, guess I'm not re-buying all the Myst games then. Not the end of the world, but I am somewhat disappointed.

Sounds to me like The Novelist. Anyone tried both? How do they compare?

Haven't played NWN since the original, all those years ago. This sounds like a wonderful time to go back.

tpauSo if we have a storm of war coming couldn't the hero of two worlds not be the players in world of warcrafts upcoming Battle for Azeroth?

No! Forget it! I'm refusing to get my hopes up again. Blizzard will never support Linux, and with how they are actively phasing out DX9 support I suspect they just hate me at this point.

We seem to be brigading this thing. I count two PS4 votes, eight Nintendo Switch, one Xbox 360, five Mac votes and three whole pages worth of Linux.

Heck, I'm a big fan of Miracle of Sound, so I'd likely buy it just in support of the theme song and bard character.

Lonely Mountains: Downhill, an arcade-style mountain biking game is on Kickstarter with Linux support

Looks cool, and if it comes out I'll likely buy it, but I've been burned in Kickstarter before. Through the Woods also had a Mac and Linux version promised, even demos. Then Antagonist took the money and went to work making a Windows only game. That was sadly the last time I would trust an unmade game to be released for my platform.

What have you been playing on Linux lately and what do you think?

Been playing a lot of Ticket to Ride lately. Solid board game, really nice for a side activity to YouTube,a good way to waste 5-10 minutes. Linux port mostly works well, but some times the menu crashes to desktop, and at other times the game keeps running in the background after being closed. Both issues are trivial.

Also powered through Full Throttle, still a great adventure game. On a side note, that was my first LucasArts adventure game, back on Dad's first Mac. Whether I'm better at it now or just remember stuff from my childhood, it now took a few hours to get through what took me a summer back then.
