I know it's a long shot, but is this game going to have a linux version?  Undecided

I've worked on a MacOSX port a bit. Just early stuff.  Afro

Linux would be a bit more tricky than OSX, and I'm not sure if there's a market for linux games. If there was a large enough demand, we could probably do it.

You don't have to go through all the native compiling stuff, just make sure it runs fine with WINE http://kegel.com/wine/isv/

Good idea! I should try it out and see how it runs. What flavor of linux would you recommend?

So yeah. I should try it out on my other box. Anyone have recommendations for partitioning / setting up dual boot stuff?

GParted is the only thing that comes to mind for me.

I used to have an Ubuntu install on a virtual machine a while ago, but it didn't have access to hardware graphics acceleration.

GParted is what i usually use. and yea, a VM wouldn't work out for that kind of stuff.

A'ight, installed Ubuntu on a crap HD I had lying around. I just straight up "wine Aquaria.exe" and it ran!

Sound doesn't work, it generates a lot of error/warning messages in the terminal and the cursor is missing. (among other bugs)

Have you thought about putting this on Xbox 360 Live Arcade, Wii, or PS3.
As a downloadable game, it will be very popular.

Yeah, that' d be great! We've definitely thought about those... (and the DS...) but there's not much we can do about it yet...

...other than make the game as awesome as possible.  Azn

After IGF and the PC release we may have a clearer picture...

Alien Hominid is gping to be popular on Xbox Live. So this game would be a classic! I hope you consider. After the PC release that is.
