And when they say "PC", they use it as a syonym for "Windows"? Pity.

@grainloom @caraellison Probably not, is my guess. Which is a pity, because I run Linux and dig the style and Moebius-esque art.

@caraellison @Nezchan Hecc, I dig pretty much everything about it except that :blobsad:

@caraellison @Nezchan Guess I'll start searching "void bastards linux support" every couple months. :blobshrug:

@caraellison @grainloom Well, it's not that I don't want to play it. I really do. But if it's something not made possible by the dev then I'm kind of out of luck.

@Nezchan @grainloom sometimes its hard as a small team to test many different platforms and have them all out at release. but it doesn't mean the shader can't be rewritten later

@caraellison Nice. Looks like the mutant bastard offspring of Heat Signature, Duskers, Borderlands and The Stanley Parable.

@caraellison it looks so charming, too! if it ever arrives on a platform i have, on a store i can ethically support buying from, i’ll definitely get it. :) (i so dislike that this second constraint is a thing)

@caraellison no worries. :) porting to everything and selling through all the channels is an ideal world scenario, not a realistic one.

@caraellison oh my god this looks like D.R. and Quinch but much better

Me, crying: your can't just invent a new genre by adding "-em-up" to a phrase!

@caraellison, pointing at Void Bastards: Douglas Adams-em-up

@caraellison looks really great! For the folks asking about Linux support, there's always Steam's new Proton stuff. I know it's not ideal from a FOSS standpoint, but it's something :)

@kudos oh! I mean I am sure the guys are trying their best to rectify the shader thing
