    Blatant damage control, that doesn't really explain anything, just a neutral PR statement.
    I think it positive.

    They prob never expected this Linux decision, to cause such an uproar.

    It becomes harder and harder to ignore Linux.

      After reading this, I'm not sure the title is good. Nothing is cleared up about the Linux situation. Or just, if we see the "save the baby" statement, that Activision just isn't considering linux as a "platform" (i have a problem with that word, as it refers more on hardware than software to me) to put games on.

        -it is mentioned on the kickstarter page
        Where exactly is it mentioned on Kickstarter that Gabriel Knight is planned for Linux? I couldn't find it.

          Put down the pitchforks and take a chill pill

          First I'd like to say that I knew nothing about Gabriel Knight until yesterday, so I'm coming at this from an outsider (which may be a good thing).

          Looking at what Jane Jensen has said, and some Google searching, I think she's telling the truth. The Moebius kickstarter page, which is a "spiritual successor" to GK, does talk about Linux and she even says that Moebius will be available on Linux. Everything I can find about the GK remake never mentions Linux: TIME, Joystiq and the original GameTrailers interview only mention Windows, OS X, iOS, and Android - exactly as she says.

          As much as I'd love having another great game on Linux, I don't think you can get too upset over something that wasn't announced anyway.

            It's a dumb decision to ignore linux to begin with considering how popular steam is, and steambox is right around the corner.

              Yeah, I got the same impression. I didn't find anything that mentions GK for Linux on Kickstarter.

                Activision sucks?
                Dark Reign says different.

                  According to Jane Jensen "MGX/GK1 is *not* being funded by kickstarter. That money all went into Moebius (and then some)."

                      Damn your evidence. The Devil mixes his lies with the truth. Let us froth at the mouth and holler like petulant children so that any developers contemplating Linux ports who have been reading all the conspiracy theories might have second thoughts about getting involved with rabid Linux gamers.


                      I would be happy to leave the angst and zealotry to the console crowd.
