I was waiting a long time for any W40k game that will have Necrons. Last one was DoW 1. And its 4X turn-based game, even better for me.

ZlopezThanks for confirmation. I tried to ask the Feral directly, but didn't get any answer for now.

I got the response from Feral:
Feral SupportI'm afraid we can't go into the nitty-gritty of our accounting, but to support us directly please feel free to buy the game from the Feral Store.

cRaZy-bisCuiTIf you buy on Steam for Linux, they'll get a share. If you buy from their store, they'll get much more.


Also please note the game has NO cross platform Multilayer between Windows and Linux - that could be a pitfall if you'd like to play this with your friends.

Thanks, but I already knew this. I want to play singleplayer for the story. This is why I played every DoW game.

EhvisSteam determines the platform by the most hours played in the first 7 days. If the game was not played during that time, the platform of purchase counts. If the platform is Linux (or Mac), Feral gets their cut.

Obviously Feral has not discussed their contracts with the publisher handles the split of income. But that should not differ between the Feral store on any other stores. The only real difference is that purchases from the Feral store aren't subject to the 30% cut from Steam.

Thanks for confirmation. I tried to ask the Feral directly, but didn't get any answer for now.

I want to buy a Dawn of War III, but I don't know if Feral get anything from the sold copy if I buy it on Steam.
Does anyone know if they are getting they share? If not I will rather wait till the sale will be in the Feral store.

The developers of Solus are hoping to improve Linux gaming with snaps and their Linux Steam Integration

As far as I know the snap is only supported by Ubuntu, other distributions wants to use Flatpak. And the Flatpak package for Steam is already worked on GitHub

I wonder why Canonical always wants to have something special that is not used in nowhere else (See: Unity, Mir ...)

BrisseSTOP PRE-ORDERING

There's absolutely no point in pre-ordering, especially when using digital distribution such as Steam. It doesn't benefit you as a consumer one bit and it's always risky.

Sadly too late for that now.
Pre-orders , season pass (basically DLC Pre-order) , microtransactions in full price games , loot crates etc.
These things are becoming more and more ubiquitous and people are getting used to them. If you call them out you look like the bad guy.

I'm resolute to be cynical and watch the world burn

You are right, people just get used to this tactics. You don't even get the whole game on release. Because there is many missing things, that are added like DLC and the price is sometimes higher than the original game. The picture bellow is sadly accurate.
