Are there any plans for a Linux version ?

I tried to play the demo on Linux and the game launches but when I choose new game I just get a black screen. I can hear the games audio in the background though. Any ideas ?

I have had a chance to play a bit of the Linux version of the demo and no issues so far. I hope to finish it tomorrow since I have the day off work but so far no crashes, glitches, or other issues. I posted a link to the demo on the Linux gaming sub reddit so hopefully more Linux gamers try it and if they have any issues can report them.

Yep it's there and works great. I assumed when Linux wasn't mentioned that it wasn't supported. I would suggest mentioning Linux on the page if you plan support as some people won't take the time to check the comments here or ask. Thanks for your time, you got yourself a pledge !
On the main page it lists Distress version 1.5 but the folder I downloaded says 1.2 and when I install the game using the Itch.io app I also get version 1.2. Steam lists a version 1.4 but no version 1.5. In the game itself under the "about" section it says Distress 1.2. Is there any newer version than 1.2 ?
For me anyway it isn't just the vagueness of their return policy but the effort it requires. On Steam I can simply click a button for a refund and the process is started. I don't have to explain anything or talk with anyone. For Itch.io you can request a refund but it requires explaining to someone why you need it. I do understand with stores with Itch it isn't as easy as Steam due to the games being DRM free. In theory with too easy of a refund policy one could buy the game, download the install files and then refund it while keeping the files. With Steam since you can't download the install files you can't do that as easily.
Will there be a Linux version ? I ask because it lists a Linux icon as what you get if you preorder but there is no Linux demo. Also there is a Mac demo but no mac version listed under what you get if you preorder.
