It's almost done:

Aquaria:

 This is almost done, but I'm crunching on something very important. Hopefully
 I'll start passing some Linux builds to Bit-Blot for testing in ~2 weeks
 when this other project is off my shoulders.

Ryan does the port, so it WILL be a REALLY GOOD port. Smiley

Are there any updates?

Just wanna say: Thank you, I'll definitely buy this game when it comes out.

If there is someone out there who really wants to port my messy code.....? I kinda doubt it. Cheesy

Wow, that was a fast answer, thanks. Unfortunately I'm not sure how to understand it.

 Does your answer means that you doubt that someone wants to port your code? Or does it mean that you doubt that you would allow this person to port it?

I'd also really like to get answers for those questions:

Are there exact questions you want answered other than I'm too busy to do a Linux port right now?

Hello again,
sorry for the lag in replying (i was busy finishing up work for my university obligations). Here are the particular questions (from above posts) that i'd still like answers to (in no particular order and possibly reworded for greater (hopefully) clarity):

1. Would you be open to allowing someone other than you (Alec/Bit-Blot) do the linux port?
Example potential porters:
  • Ryan C. Gordon or another professional porter
    (Ryan has "indie-friendly" pricing which could be covered in a number of ways without dipping into Bit-Blot's pockets)
  • Linux Game Publishing
    (they negotiate any royalties and/or upfront payments to Bit-Blot for the rights to the port and then produce and sell boxed versions)
  • Community member(s)
    (ported for free by someone who has the time to do so.)

2. Would you consider offering the Windows versions of Aquaria to linux users at a discounted price?
(Discounted price because we'd be forced to run it through WINE. Doing so would also allow the purchase to be identified as a linux sale.)

3. Would you consider offering linux users a refund or other guarantee that the Windows version would work under WINE?

I'm waiting for a linuxversion since the day Aquaria came out.

Have you ever thought about letting someone else making the linuxversion? Maybe linuxgamepublishing.com or rune-soft.com?
