….see a significant interest about playing the game on Linux from the playerbase. If things change in the future (via players on Social Media or Steam Discussions asking for this feature) they may implement that compatibility.
First off, there is a Steam Discussions post for Poker Quest already started. So obviously the developers want to see more Linux community support. Especially since Early Access development “will take less than one year.” This does not guarantee a port, but it certainly does help to show avid interest. The game is developed in Haxe.
