  • Stop adding Sui Generis... FFS
    Will I be able to play on Mac/Linux?
    We want to support both Mac and Linux with native clients. With Mac this should be trivial, we have less direct experience with Linux so would rather not make any promises just yet.

      • Interstellar Marines: Prologue is on Unity and has Linux support (marked as "planned" on the KS page). Here's an interview where they talk a bit about Linux support.

        While not strictly Kickstarter, StarForge developers say that they will look into Linux support once Unity 4 comes out, which would be now So will have to monitor that space for further developments.

        • Steffen from BetaDwarf, the team developing Forced, was interviewed by TLLTS (episode 479).

          The racing game Distance achieved it's funding goal and has added a few stretch goals.

          • Did anyone notice that Interstellar Marines has a new Kickstarter video now? It definitely is far better than the first one. However, with 12 days to go, and 494 000 US dollars funding still needed, a miracle needs to happen. Perhaps Linux users can request this to be a timed Linux exclusive if they do the majority of the funding?

            • Beast & Blades announced official Linux support:
              http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...t/posts/353396

              They only have $1700 pledged with 5 days left in the campaign but their goal is only $12500.

                • Status of campaigns I backed

                  Maia is funded and now into stretch goals wit the first being pets at 101010.

                  Beasts & Blades is probably a failure at $1800 out of $12500 with only 12 hours remaining.

                  Ormr (image editor) with $19K out of $50K USD with three days remaining. They could use an angel investor.

                  Interstellar Marines: Prologue seems to have stalled at $146K out of $600K USD with just over two days remaining.

                  Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption was funded last week but is accepting PayPal donations to meet stretch goals.

                  Forced is at $30K out of $40K USD with 5 days remaining

                  Pier Solar is at $126K out of $139K USD with 9 days remaining so they are doing well.

                  Other successful campaigns:
                  Distance
                  Super Comboman
                  Fields of Fresh
                  Arakion
                  Project Eternity
                  Carmageddon: Reincarnation

                  Unsuccessful:
                  Gerztron
                  DH: Mechanized Assault Vehicle

                  • Forsaken Fortress - a post-apocalyptic RPG/RTS. Looks similar to Warzone 2100. Have to maintain troop morale with entertainment, bribes, etc. according to their personalities. Linux support from the start. $4700 of $100K USD with 26 days remaining.

                    • The Banner Saga - Stoic (ends April 20), however they appear to have committed to a post-release client.

                          • Meriwether has Linux support from the get-go: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...-american-epic
                            War of the Overworld, same thing: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...-the-overworld
                            And Limit Theory reached the Linux goal already.

                            • In Project Godus (Peter Molyneux, 22 Cans) update video one of the developers confirmed it has Mac support but that it is also already running on Linux

                              Video is in latest update (update 13)

                              • No mention of linux support on any of their pages that I could find, so I won't support it. I'm not having a go at the poster here - I appreciate that the video may well say that linux is already working (couldn't be bothered checking - sorry), but these days, I'm only interested in supporting a cause that promotes Linux, and far less interested about just getting a game that works on linux.

                                I wonder why they're shouting about "Mac, PC, Mobile iOS & Android!" but won't mention linux. Perhaps they don't make a distinction in their heads about PC meaning Windows OR linux, but I'm afraid that I do, and I think that linux as a platform needs that distinction too.

                                Moot point anyway for me - UK Kickstarter doesn't support Amazon payments, so despite pledging to around 15 projects over the past year, I'm now cut off from Kickstarter unless I'm prepared to trust them with my credit card details. Which, for the moment, I'm not. I've emailed them about it, but they haven't deigned to reply in the last fortnight.
