...and Linux!
Linux support contribution was a success, and it will now be developed in first priority.

Great, that was fast.
How about a web plugin for Windows, Mac and Linux then? It would support running the game natively on these platforms in a browser frame on IE, Firefox and Chrome.
Compare with this for example: http://www.spawnapps.com/

You can easily sell this as an additional license to get the development costs back from existing licensees.

And... congratulations on having full support for the occulus! A new set devs will come flocking in pretty soon just because of that. Are you doing any type of marketing focusing on those devs?

RE: ...and Linux!
Looks like I'm going to have to dust off the ol' Linux skills and reinstall to test with. I haven't been part of the Linux scene for a few(10) years... how is it now with porting between the different flavors of Linux? It used to be that what worked on one distro was hit or miss with others.

on linux it's about time the more you work on it the more you become more productive with it linux is free cool , but the lack of support is preventing it from unleashing itself but it's about time smile

I love linux regardless of it's rare support smile

I have no idea smile for now I've just installed Ubuntu, on which I'll be focusing, as I think that it's the most popular one, and for example Valve's Steam supports only that one - https://support.steampowered.com/kb_arti...-QHXN-8366
Once SteamOS comes out, It's possible I'll give that a go too, or just switch to it.

RE: ...and Linux!
Wow, great news. I was away for a few weeks and didn't even know Linux support was on the list. :-)

Anyway, if you need help or testing: I have quite some experience linux. Only switched to windows a few years back for esenthel, really. Perhaps now i'll finally be able to switch back!
