So Airship Syndicate, the developers of Battle Chasers: NIghtware have silently removed their Linux support only few hours before the release, both here and on GOG.
Thoughts? Or an explanation? Anything?
Not sure what it means silent, since the release didn't happen yet, but see the update to the article. Developers explained it:
By silence I meant that until yesterday the shop page stated the Linux version will be available, then it was removed without any message.
I'm very sorry we couldn't get the Linux version ready by launch. We're a small indie developer, and we just didn't have the resources to get it in a state we felt players would be happy with by launch.
We had asked our publisher to pull down the Linux platform last week from Steam and GoG, but unfortunately it didn't happen until yesterday. If you preordered hoping to play Linux day one, please feel free to get a refund. Let us know if you have any trouble there and we'll help get it sorted out.
We are working on the Linux version and hope to have it in decent shape in the next few weeks.
So sorry, guys!
GOG however should put that into the upcoming release page instead of being silent then
That should clear it up, timing was very unfortunate. I didn't see the message anywhere, so I assumed they just pulled the Linux port, which wouldn't be the first time this happening to a game.
But its good to hear they are still working on it. I can understand it giving Linux' small marketshare that they focus on other platforms, but a heads up would have been nice.
