Want Fabled Fortress On GNU/Linux ?

Fabled Fortress is a hybrid strategy game about building, managing, and defending the kingdom of your dreams against ruthless invaders.

While they currently using Unity3.5, they will upgrade to Unity4 when it officially ships.
But as their game is planned to be finished at March it could be a problem to deliver a GNU/Linux port…
However if you want this game to be ported to GNU/Linux, the developers asked to message them .
With enough interest, they may commit to a GNU/Linux client.

 

From our conversation :

 

LGN:
Hello !  , What about a Linux version ?

Hi Maxim!

Thank you for your interest in Fabled Fortress!
Because the current version of our development platform, Unity 3D, doesn’t support Linux we haven’t listed this platform among our initial releases; however, the upcoming update of Unity 4 includes Linux support!
Provided we get enough backers from the Linux community and there are no unforeseen issues moving from Unity 4 beta to release, we will strive to release on this platform. We hope this gives you the confidence to back the project.
If you have any remaining questions or concerns, please feel free to respond.
Thanks again for your support! It really makes a difference!

LGN:
If you are going to upgrade to Unity4 which supports Linux, why not offer the Linux support so Linux gamers could pledge for your project ? (MANY other games that use Unity4 promised a Linux client…).
I mean, if you cannot promise it, then why should people pledge for a project they won’t even sure they could play later ?Thanks
Maxim.”

Hi Maxim!

The main issue is making sure that Unity 4 is live and not still in beta during our release in March. We take this stance because shipping on beta software could cause unforeseen problems and, in our view, we can deliver a better product after all the Unity 4 beta issues are resolved. We have decided not to upgrade to Unity 4 until it has officially shipped and is not still in beta.
With that said, several of our backers have already requested Linux support and it is only a matter of time before we deliver this support. The only reason Linux support isn’t listed among the initial releases is because we want to make sure that Unity 4 is no longer in beta before committing to delivering in March.
Why don’t you check back closer to the end of the project when we should hopefully have more details from Unity about the Unity 4 release date? Because of the overwhelming number of requests for Linux in the past few days, we are going to review when we can realistically offer this support without any issues.
If you know of any others in the Linux community who are interested in adding this support, could you also have them send us a short message? This would really help reinforce adding Linux as an early release.

Thanks again for your support!
