Update #12 - Mac and Linux, Stretch Goal 1 Achieved, New Uncle Jack Video!
3 days left in our campaign and we are now at + $269,000 thanks to over 6000 backers! We have reached our very first stretch goal, Drug Paradise!
Reaching the Drug Paradise stretch goal means that we will enhance the drug feature in the game, such as more effects (visual, audio, functionality), more drug types and all around have more time to focus on fun and creative drug designs.
We are very excited to announce that we will be bringing We Happy Few to Mac and Linux! Now the citizens of Wellington Wells will be able to be suspicious of fruit and aquatic mammals as well.
This took a bit of time for us to consider, so thank you for being patient. We hope that you guys will help us spread the word to your friends in Mac and Linux gaming communities, as we’d love to have them join us! Some additional answers/details:
Will we get Mac or Linux versions in the pre-alpha?
No. As you guys know, we’re not a huge team, and we really want to focus on making this game the best it can be. We are planning to deliver the Mac and Linux versions on or shortly after full release of the game. We will not be creating Mac or Linux pre-alpha versions - the pre-alpha through Steam will be Windows only. If we go into Early Access at some point, we won’t be creating them then either.
What tier do I pledge at for a Mac or Linux version?
Any tier you want - but bear in mind that you’ll need a Windows PC to run the pre-alpha, if you pledge at that tier.
How will we get access to the Linux or Mac versions?
The same way you get access to the Windows versions: through Steam and DRM free. Exactly how we distribute the DRM free builds we haven’t confirmed yet (you do have to get retailers to agree to this), but hopefully it will be GOG.
We would like to run the pre-alpha on Wine or Parallels, or through Virtual Machines.
Cool! While we’re not going to spend a great deal of time supporting this, let us know how it goes on our forums and we’ll be happy to sticky a thread to help keep support/solutions in one place.
New Uncle Jack video!
We are tremendously happy at the reception of part one of Uncle Jack’s show Nighty Night: The Pied Piper of Hamlyn.
We couldn’t leave you all hanging any longer, so here is part two of Uncle Jack’s Nighty Night show, The Pied Piper. Good night, sweet princes and princesses, and we do hope you make it back from the forest.
In addition, we have been thinking about creating an audio book of Uncle Jack telling bed time stories (maybe some more Grimm’s fairy tales), that we’d send out to all of you. While they might be slightly nightmare inducing, we just can’t deny how enchanting Julian Casey is. If you like the idea, let us know below :)
