In this case, they're from Criterion UK and similar development studios (The guy was a dev lead on things like Burnout 3...)- they would mostly only fully grok the console space.
It looks like a cool game. I know I'm interested in the thing. I've already popped over to their forums and let 'em know that there might actually be something of a market for them with our crowd.I would buy it tomorrow just to prove em wrong .
The numbers for 2dboy and wolfire are posted on their websites so you may as well stick them up in your post as it proves the point that there is a demand for it (5-10% for linux or 35%-50%! for both is nothing to be sniffed at!).

As a completely unrelated topic are you offering to do mac ports to the developers you approach as well as linux or just linux? Doing both might make for an easier sale.
Also have you talked to the guys behind Kivi's Underworld as it looks like they are actively looking to port their games and your name comes up with Ryan's and LGP but I doubt they'll have your contact details.
I've got to re-send my stuff to Data Realms (seems the paste orifice lost the dang things...) and I should be talking with them and one or two other studios here shortly. Since, apparently, people have been mentioning me, I'll do it much sooner than later.Also have you talked to the guys behind Kivi's Underworld as it looks like they are actively looking to port their games and your name comes up with Ryan's and LGP but I doubt they'll have your contact details.
I'd like to see the wimgcomander series also(Have Prophecy still on the CD rack)
While looking There's one i cant believe I/we missed,
Sinstar unleased, THQ/Midway
It was extremely addictive!
Not sure if interplay was soaked up by EA but what about MDK/2 ?
Is SCI still going? what about the carmageddon series? Ok it's getting on a bit, but it was fun.
Edit: had a look on sci.co.uk and they do a mac version/demo!
