I'm wondering if HOB will run on Linux at release.
It would be awesome if we could buy it on steam and play on release.

    Sorry for the thread necro, but what is the movement on a linux release? I love Torchlight 1 and 2 because they are great games AND are linux friendly.

    It won't directly answer your question about a linux release but it will assist you on what platforms they are shipping for. The platforms that they have said are the Windows (there's a steam page) and PS4 platforms at its current state. You'll have to keep an eye out if there are anymore details.

    Just PC and PS4 for initial release. We're a small studio with our own tech and this is the first time we're doing multiple platforms at launch. Trying to keep things (relatively) limited in scope!

    Do you plan to release a linux version eventually?

    The most likely answer you're going to get is that they're focusing on the platforms they've announced for now. All other platforms are considered but as they're a small team any potential future releases will depend on whether or not they can afford to commit the resources to it. Linux is a very small platform which unfortunately means it's last in line in terms of potential profitability.

    I have a feeling we will see one, maybe released with a future Humble Bundle. That likely will not be for quite some time after the game was released. The Torchlight's were released on Linux but it was some time after the game was done.
