                        Well right from the earlier link
                        Some of the important features that we hope to include are a multiplayer version on at least LAN and support for Mac and Linux platforms.
                        First impressions from the video indoor was quite meh, until it went to outside world where graphics are quite beautiful...

                          • Hello friends!

                            Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption will now support Linux natively, without stretch goals! Lori and Corey Cole, creators of the Quest for Glory series of adventure/RPG games, are designing this adventure with an Australian development company called Brawsome. It's an adventure/RPG hybrid (though more on the RPG side than QfG was) and is to be set in the same land of Gloriana as the QfG series (at least to the extent that the land of Gloriana was the Cole's own invention for running tabletop RPG campaigns, before ever designing video games).

                            A few Linux backers and I have been corresponding with Corey to help him understand what's involved in a Linux port and the real costs involved, and have convinced him that we, the community, can share QA responsibilities during the beta testing phase, and he's committed to doing all the porting work himself (though Unity will make that very easy, someone has to address any snags along the way). We've worked really hard to gain his trust, and I hope that some of you will at least take a peek.

                            I hope some of you who fondly remember Quest for Glory will join us and post your appreciation for Linux on the comment thread with us, so they can see how appreciated the support is, and how awesome our community is!

                            For those who have never played that series, come on and check out a really neat top-down, tile-based RPG with challenging puzzles and branching storylines affected by the consequences of the choices you make. The game will have beautiful cartoon-style hand painted backgrounds (like old-school VGA games used to be, but with updated resolution and color depth), as the tiles are actually big (unlike typical JRPG-style tile arrangements).

                            Also.. thanks for the head's up on the list before here! Backed 'Distance', 'Maia', 'Sir, You Are Being Hunted', 'Dysis' and 'Super Comboman'!
