    Good observation, but also not a major loss. We all like our blockbusters, but the AAA market is largely filled with over-hyped dreck. I'd much rather have a publisher like Paradox bring some of its titles to our platform.

    Come on people, look at the changes in the gaming world. 2 years ago almost nobody cared about Linux gaming, look at how it is changing! More and more games are showing up and the prices are pretty good, this game costs just 15 dollar!

    I support this kickstarter campaign, I hope you do too! Kicktraq tells where heading toward $570,000, so it is certainly possible!

    Linux is often used as stretch-goal bait in these Kickstarter campaigns. Funny that.

    I'm generally more a fan of the ones that go "We'll be making a Linux version anyway, but if we make $x we can hire someone to make it a day 1 release", like Legends of Eisenwald did.

    I do wish some more of these ones that promise Linux support would get coverage in Linux media. Only the high profile ones seem to get any mention. :/

    @RealNC - In theory your complaint is valid, but similarly, what if you are the only Linux person contributing, and the remaining extra $200000 is all made up by Mac and Windows donators, then they'd effectively be paying for your Linux port.

    Anyone can cancel pledge. For example I do that in Grim Dawn case, when they doesn't reach their Linux goal.

    Uhm... no, thanks? Unless they give the money back if no Linux version is made, participating is a bad idea.

    Phoronix: Linux Gamers Are Going Crazy For This New Game

    There's another Kickstarter-backed game that may be coming to Linux and it's causing Linux gamers to become extremely excited. In the past day I've received no less than 30~40 emails from readers talking about this possible Linux port of Carmageddon: Reincarnation...
