Phoronix: Frozenbyte Delays Trine 2 For Linux Into 2012
If you were hoping to play Frozenbyte's new game, Trine 2, under Linux this year, you're out of luck. Frozenbyte has announced that the Linux client of Trine 2 has been pushed back into 2012 while the Mac OS X and Windows versions will ship today and the console ports before year's end...
the first frozenbyte bundle linux raked in more money for the bundle than mac
It took more money in total but the average purchase price for Linux was $11.79 while Mac was only $6.43. That's awesome but probably means (hard to be exact without the real figures) there were fewer Linux buyers than there were Mac buyers, they just paid more.
And I don't think there's any question as to which platform has more users. Plus OSX has Steam so FB can unify their marketing push through that.
I'll also only buy Trine 2 after the Linux release. The first one was a pure gem for Linux gaming.
As for the Linux v Mac release, it's reasonable from a business sense. Rah rah similarities between Linux/mac, can't they just do both? Think about it. Mac is only available on a very limited hardware basis, whereas we all know Linux covers a whole lot more different architectures. Be thankful they even consider us.
Kk, I'll buy now and use wine so I can be one of the cool kids to say I've played it, stop using Linux, obviously you don't want to.
Bla bla the rest of the argument we've heard before.
