Book of Demons still no native support, why?

book of demons still no linux support on steam games 2017

Book of Demons does not have native support for Linux on Steam The games available for Windows on Early Access only. So we are somewhat used to this happening by now. Well it’s annoying, which we all know but it’s a waiting and see. But why?

Linux support according to Thing Trunk:

“I can tell you that we have ported our graphics engine to OpenGL. This opens a way to both Mac and Linux ports.
Sadly, based on Steam Hardware Survey data. Linux users make up only about a 0.32% of Steam users. So Mac will be our first choice. Sorry for that but we have to take those numbers into consideration :(”

December update:
“For sure not 2017. But our plans for bringing Book of Demons on Linux didn’t change.”

Since some people might be triggered by this. Do note, email has been exchanged regarding Linux market share. While this does somewhat confirm the native version. Do note, should you want to share your Tux love.

So for those who do not know Book of Demons. This is Thing Trunk’s unique deck-building, papercraft hack & slash.
Also, the games hero lineup is now complete. So this means the addition of the bow-wielding, charming-but-deadly Rogue.
