We Happy Few latest native support update

we happy few latest linux mac support update

We Happy Few has a new Linux and Mac support update, plus We All Fall Down. Thanks to developer Compulsion Games. Who announced the news to all Kickstarter backers. Plus a new expansion coming to the game.

We Happy Few has a brand new support update for Linux and Mac. Where the game studio also offer options for native backers. But outlining that support will of course happen. They go on to apologize for the late arrival. Which is coming in a Beta Branch.

Linux Support Update:

When we launched our Kickstarter, we promised Mac and Linux versions of the game. After spending over a year of development on the Linux and Mac versions. We still haven’t reached a quality level that we are comfortable with. We’ll no longer plan to release or sell these versions officially on stores.
We are doing a limited Linux or Mac release just for you. Alongside providing you with a full refund.”

This is a huge disappointment for We Happy Few backers. But since Compulsion is taking so long to release a Linux build. This usually indicates there are development issues. And likewise, this is the case.

The Steam/GOG codes you have already received are yours to keep. And you will be able to access the Mac/Linux beta branches on Steam.
The beta branch version for Linux runs natively. Linux players will be able to play it once 1.9 (update) arrives. Although you can opt for the Proton version too. Which currently is performing slightly better than the native version.

Why is the native version really taking so long? Compulsion explains, “the Linux and Mac versions will likely run at lower frame-rates than the Windows version of the game.”
This also leads me to believe that efforts have been taken. Hoping to improve these results. But the positive outcome for all of this, a game you can keep. And also refund too, should you choose. A very bold offering by Compulsion to keep their fanbase happy.
