My technical reply:
Confirmed Failure on Catalyst 13.1; Linux Mint 14 Mate 64bit
Detailed System Specs Summary : http://pastebin.com/WBQ94bsvMy Personal reply:
The problem still exists, almost 2 months
after being reported.
While I understand that porting applications and games to new platforms is difficult at best, I would like to mention that if this were an opensource project, then
"This is in the pipeline, hard to estimate when we could make it though"
would be a perfectly relevant and acceptable reply.
However, considering this is a COMMERCIAL
and "Paid For"
application, it is not an acceptable response.
I am experiencing these issues, and I'm not the only one. You can find the hottest topic on Steam here : http://steamcommunity.com/app/91200/discussions/0/864959088378262156
There are more people on this one thread alone, than any other relating to your game. I would advise interacting directly with your Valuable Customers
directly in the Steam forum, as these are your bread and butter. I respect a company that releases a game for Linux. However, lack of support for the community shows a lack of interest. Some of us feel ripped off at buying a game that does not work, and having little to no response from the company that released it.
Support your Linux followers. They can reward you more than any other community. They are fickle. If you gain their loyalty, you will gain it for life.
