Mini Motorways strategy simulation to rely on Proton for Linux, but releasing on Mac and Windows PC. According to further details from developer Dinosaur Polo Club. Due to make its way onto Steam in July.
Mini Motorways is minimalist strategy simulation game. Which is all about designing the roads of cities around the world. Due to makes way onto Steam on Tuesday, July 20, 2021. Of course, on Steam, the Linux discussion has a developer post from 2019. Stating that, “our current plan is to support Linux through Steam Play.” Fair enough, but that was almost years ago. So I reached out to see there is hope for a Linux port.
We build our games with Unity. And we do not have plans to do a Linux port, as there’s often far too many bugs that come along with that build for a team as small as ours, to be able to support to the standard we like to.
Well, it looks like a similar sort of explanation still stands for Mini Motorways. Proton support will be the only means of supporting Linux due to, “too many bugs that come along with that build”. Which is kind of a disappointment. However, chances are, since Unity 3D is being used for development, Proton support should function well. But it’s disheartening to see Linux being pushed aside due to “obscure Linux specific issues”.
