This has probably been asked a million times already but, I was wondering when we should expect the release of 1.5?

Hello kane,

No worries at all!

Short story: version 1.5 should be available sometime next week.

Long story: at the moment I'm visiting Slitherine's offices pretty much every week. I had left a set of 1.5.0 builds for all platforms and stores (PC, OSX and iOS) on April 8th, but then we got a report earlier this week about issues when registering an account inside the game itself, so I fixed it and had to create a new set of builds. I've left the builds to my assigned producer during my visit last Wednesday. They need to do some internal testing before making the build available. I'll ping him on Monday to get a more precise date, but I'm confident the build will be available sometime next week for all desktop platforms.

Cheers,

Hello Kane,

I just spoke to Slitherine. They told me that the installer for the patches of the desktop versions have been built. Once Apple approved the iOS build that has been submitted last Thursday (might take a few days), SPM 1.5.0 will go live for all platforms.

Sorry, I forgot to answer this question. We're not planning to release the game on Linux at the moment. We do have plans to release the game on Android at some point, though.

I have been reading announcements of this game with interrest for some time... it sounds fun and is already supported on a number of platforms... was hoping for Linux to be added.

I would have no problems to commit buying it. What if x users commit to buy a Linux version?

Hello dmantione,

Unfortunately for the moment I don't have the resources to support Linux. I understand this might be frustrating to some players, but personally I don't have a lot of experience in that platform and I'm very concerned that if I were to create a Linux version I'll start getting reports for technical issues that I'd have to deal with. That being said, I was told by one of our closest members of the community that the game works fine on Wine. PM me if you're interested in this option and I'll double check with him so that we can be 100% sure.

I'm generally reserved towards Wine. It has definately has its uses, but few games work perfectly, you have to work to make games work, such as copying DLL's from a real Windows system (which is technically piracy) and there is absolutely no support from the developer if something turns out not to work. That makes it a kind of difficult decision to put money into it.

On the other hand, Wine seems a rather usefull tool for quick software ports. For example the "Linux version" of Teamviewer is actually the Windows version compiled against Wine. You don't notice this as a user, it installs like a native application and there is nothing to complain while using the software.
