Demo for Mac/Linux now up!
Hey! Just a heads up for all of you who have made one non-market-majority personal calculation machine life decisions: I got the alpha demo of Rubicon for Mac OSX and Linux "working" (defined as running on the computers of the two random passerbys which I did vigorously accost) and quietly uploaded them this morning.
Here are the current download links: [PC] [OSX] [Linux], proudly hosted by the finest free filehosting service that I found in five minutes of googling. That is to say, those links probably fine until they die of old age, a chipmunk chews through the internet tubes, or they are disturbed by a light breeze. In addition, keep in mind that is an alpha version of Rubicon which has not been optimized for running speed, sense of life fulfillment, or "fun".
Man, I am such a professional operation.
A note on how I plan on running beta testing: when the Kickstarter wraps up (did I say thank you yet for making so I can say "when"?) I'm going to start periodically releasing versions of Rubicon whenever I need feedback on a specific aspect of the game. Beta testers will get access to these versions, which will be included with a prompt with what I'm looking for- though general bug/feature reactions will also be very much solicited.
