The question on steam:
Actually making other versions is necessarily a lot of extra resources, so we have to put it in the balance with the maximum number of people we could touch.

I agree that it would be nice to have a native Linux version, but not every developer wants to deal with it. In this case, it isn't a huge deal if you don't mind using Wine. I had no trouble at all getting it to work. No unusual tinkering or special configurations are required. These days, Wine has been working a lot better than it used to; I've had about a 95% success rate, although some games require a fair amount of tinkering or trial and error.

That is the reason for the request.
easy to achieve.

Thanks for your bruyère response
Thank you, for everyone who will be interested in your very interesting information:)

I must admit that I dream of a world, where I won’t have to ask myself the question: maybe with Wine?
I prefer bought those who thought of us;)
There are still a lot of native games coming out, and the effort of the developers also allows me to sort through my purchases!
That said, if he realizes it he will be a purchase.

If there is too much buying with a Wine intention, the Native version becomes a simple comfort, is not realized.
What distribution are you using, my friend?

I have Ubuntu 18.04, and I use the Lutris launcher to manage Wine versions. I install each game in a separate Wine prefix so that configurations can be customized if necessary. I don't know if you have tried Wine yet. It can seem a little intimidating to get started with it, but it is easy once you get past the learning curve. Also, if you use Steam, you can install Proton from within Steam, and Lutris can find it afterwards and use it for non-Steam games. Lutris can install games automatically using scripts, but these scripts aren't available for every game, and the scripts don't always work, so I prefer to install games manually using the system Wine and add them to Lutris afterwards. Another option is Playonlinux - it is a bit clunky, but it provides an easy step-by-step process to install games and manage Wine versions, so it is a great choice for beginners or those who don't want to do anything manually from within a terminal window.

I'm also a bit concerned that with Wine getting better, developers will see no reason to make a native Linux version. I'm also not certain what to do about it. Some developers (particularly the AAA companies) have never been good about supporting Linux, and since AAA games are popular, this has driven the development of Wine and Proton. As long as companies like Bethesda keep making games like Skyrim without Linux support, there will be a huge incentive for people to keep improving Wine and Proton to support the latest games.

For me, the presence of a native Linux version will make me more likely to buy a game because it will most likely work. If there isn't one, then I have to decide whether I want to take the trouble to research whether Wine is likely to work and whether I want to take the chance of any associated performance reductions. Wine works with most games these days, but not all. In the case of this game, the concept was appealing enough that I wanted it even though it requires Wine, and so far, it has worked without any issues. I like the idea of a fantasy role playing game that has a lot of humor; most fantasy role playing games take themselves far too seriously, so it is nice to have something a little silly for a change.

Also, note that even native Linux games won't necessarily run on every system. Sometimes, older ones require outdated libraries that, if installed, can cause problems for other software. I've run into this - sometimes it is easier to run the Windows version with Wine than to mess around with outdated libraries. (Corpse Party is an example - even though it has a Linux version, I run the Windows version using Wine.)
