Any plans for a Linux version? If not, it will probably work well under WINE regardless. I'm just curious.

At this stage probably not . Let me know how it runs in WINE though.

Good job completing your game! I remember seeing it back before you tried for KS funding. Always cool to see a game make its way to the public.

Thank you! It's come a long way since the KS and I'm really happy with how the game turned out. I hope you enjoy it if get the chance to play it.

this soundtrack seriously rocks and gets stuck in my head! Intuitive gameplay is addictive and creative. Original too nice one studio stobie
