Musings on the words Beta and Linux



First and foremost, hats off to you, Bare Mettle; I'm thoroughly impressed by everything I've seen so far, and I'm eagerly looking forward to following the development process from here on out (and, needless to say, to see the game in action myself).

I realize this is a topic still far off in the future, but I'm keen on hearing your thoughts on the matter never the less: With the beta releases of the game, will you be looking for your supporters to provide feedback on running the software? The reason I'm even asking (betas normally being released for this sole purpose), is that early access also obviously works great as a fundraising reward, so it's just to clarify.

I'm sure I'm far from alone in this mindset, but as a long-term Linux user ever craving for the "gaming industry" to pay more attention to my platform of choice, I want you to know that, given the opportunity, I'd be delighted to help out in any way that I can with testing, feedback, and so forth.

On a side note, your intentions of going DRM-free and hoping to provide native clients on the three major platforms is one thing, aside from that wicked in-game footage in the pitch video that instantly sold me on your project.

Thank you, keep up the great work, and don't fear the penguins!


Very much agreed! I, too, as a Linux user would be happy to help with anything that needs helping with. I think many people will find it surprising that Linux users atually make out a huge chunk of customers, and as proven by the Humble Bundles, actually contribute more than MacOS users.
