“I’m happy to continue to support Linux”, said Troy Hepfner, the lone indie developer behind My Game Company. “Linux gamers are some of my most supportive customers. They’re very passionate about their operating system, and about helping me make my games work better. And I think they tell more people about my games than my Mac and Windows customers combined. What more could a small company want?”
Similar updates to support more recent distributions will be made to My Game Company’s other games in the near future.
The free demo is designed to work on a wide variety of Linux distributions, and uses a Bitrock installer to install the game in a distribution-independent manner. The fact that the game is playable on so many different distributions is one of the features that customers appreciate most.
