Shardlight / Re: Will Shardlight have a Mac version?

A Golden Wake got a simultaneous release for Windows, Linux and Mac, but I think it's the only game to do so to this day. I'm on Linux, so it has been a while since I've played a new WEG game too.

The game looks awesome! Can't wait to play it.

No worries. :) The most important thing is after all being able to play the games natively. Now we just get another incentive to replay the games later. ;)

A Golden Wake / Re: Biplane puzzle
« on: October 20, 2014, 09:13:24 AM »
Yeah, this was my favourite puzzle as well. It took me a good while to figure out and I agree that the controls were awkward. (I had to put aside the game for a while when I got to the point where I was punching the mouse button.) The solution finally came to me about half an hour later when I wasn't playing though, and it gave me one of those eureka experiences that aren't so common with modern point-and-click adventures. That made me really like it.

If there's anything I would want to change about it though it's to have a visual clue that lets you know when the game accepts input to mouse presses. That, I think, would remove a lot of the frustration from this puzzle.

I'm having the same issue with The Blackwell Legacy. Haven't tried the others yet.

All three of the Blackwells from the recent Humble Bundle with Android now appear in my library. As you say, they're without binaries though, but that usually means they have a test branch up.

Yeah, I do too, but Linux sales probably won't amount to much on these titles in the near future since they've been out for Windows for so long. I have high hopes for A Golden Wake though, since it was a same-day release for Linux. It will be interesting to see how well it does (given that WEG are willing to disclose their sale stats per OS).

Yeah, thanks for the Linux ports! It's much appreciated. :)

Glad to hear Dave got it sorted out for you. :)

Based on that description it sounds like you might have javascript turned off in your browser, because that's exactly what that page looks like to me if I turn it off in mine. Apparently the contents of that container are loaded with javascript.

I'm not sure which browser you have but I'm on Firefox 32.0 (Linux version) and I can toggle javascript by opening a new tab, typing in "about:config" (without quotes) and searching for "javascript.enabled" (again without quotes). If the value on that line is set to "false", you can right click it and choose "Toggle" to enable javascript.

Again:

Isn't there a link to download the game when you visit the Humble link? Humble Bundle usually allows you to download DRM free versions of games without registering.

If you open the link in the email you got when buying it, you should see something like this:

Maybe they would be candidates for Indie Box once the Mac and Linux versions are available ? (Cross platform is an Indie Box requirement.) They've had some really good games in those boxes in the past.

13
Yep! They are already ported. We are testing them now.

Thanks! That's awesome news! :-)

Looking forward to playing the original trilogy again plus the last game that I have yet to buy since it was released after I stopped using Windows and Wine.

EDIT: Oh, it's four games I've played. I forgot that the last game was actually the fifth.

The first three Blackwell games are *this* close to being ported to iOS. Legacy was just submitted to the App Store last night, actually!

Does that mean the contracted third party mentioned in the FAQ has started on porting the first three Blackwell games to Linux as well?

Chit Chat! / Re: Linux versions

We are in the midst of porting Gemini Rue to Linux right now! We really want this to be the year of porting, but we are only two people. We can only port one game at a time, one platform at a time - in addition to making our next game!

Steam has already expressed interest in our Linux ports, once they are finished. So rest assured they are coming! Just not yet.

Awesome news! :D I will play all your games again when the Linux versions are ready. It's also a good strategic move to get in there while there's still relatively few Linux games on Steam, since it's a lot easier to get noticed among a hundred games than the several thousands on Windows. Not saying the consistent good quality of your games isn't enough to make them sell like hot cakes though. ;)
