“We’re using Unity for Second Hand: Frankies Revenge. So we could theoretically have it working on Linux. But it’s not currently on the roadmap. We are planning to release on PC and all major consoles this year. The PC launch will be exclusive exclusive to Steam for Windows at the beginning. But we’ll consider additional distribution platforms and OS’s. Once Frankie’s Revenge is out on our main targets.”
So this is the reply back in March 2019. I was hoping there might be a change. Since Second Hand: Frankies Revenge just released on Early Access. But the focus is on Windows PC. Which we should all be used to by now.
But the team are eager for a Linux release. And as a small team they have to “prioritize”. Which is also a good time to Wishlist on Steam.
