Linux version?

Did you drop Linux support for the game? I bought it a couple of days ago when still had the penguin icon but I can't see it anymore...

Is it because all the Linux-related problems that have been reported lately ([1], [2], [3])? I'm running Arch Linux and I'm getting both the "fullscreen bug" and the lack of certain textures like human skins (see [4]) or certain rocks.

On top of that I'm having some shader problems, probably related to sunlight going through glass and water (see [5]-[8]). I found these warnings on the Unity log:

WARNING: Shader Unsupported: 'Eastshade/Y Projector and Waterline' - Pass 'DEFERRED' has no vertex shader
WARNING: Shader Unsupported: 'Eastshade/Y Projector and Waterline' - Pass 'FORWARD' has no vertex shader

I've tried running the Windows version with Wine and, while performance is noticeably worse and there are other minor graphical glitches, none of the above happens so it seems like it's all indeed Linux-specific.

So: are you looking into these problems or have you definitely dropped Linux support for the game? I hope not, and I don't really think so since it's still listed as Linux-compatible on Steam, but still I'd like to know.

Thanks!

I really appreciate you reporting these bugs, and I'm really sorry for your inconvenience. Unfortunately I have decided to pull Linux support. As far as I know, it was stable on Linux initially, with the exception that saving did not work. In my recent update I changed a lot, and it looks like it broke the game for some distros of Linux. I was faced with the decision of either rolling back the build for the Linux branch (which would mean saving would be broken again), spending more time and resources fixing the extremely numerous bugs I continue to have with Linux's many distros, or pulling support for Linux. Supporting Linux has proven to be more than I can afford to handle at the moment, and that's a mistake I'm deeply sorry for! I can arrange to send you a refund via paypal if you have a paypal. Let me know!

Oh, sorry to hear that. :(

No need for a refund, but thanks nonetheless. I'll just play the game via Wine. Or better still, is there any way you could make the initial Linux version available to me? I don't care if I can't save, the game isn't that long anyway, is it? :)

Thanks so much for being so understanding! I've finally managed to roll back the Linux build to the last working version on Steam, so hopefully it works as good as it ever did now. If you're not using Steam let me know and I can get you a link to download it seperately. I don't want to put it up on itch because then itch show as supporting Linux.

I don't use Steam actually, so I'd greatly appreciate a download link. Since you probably wouldn't want to leave it here 'in the open', I'll just fire an email to you so you can send it to me. Cheers!
