    +1000

    and is why kickstarter is a bargain.

    you get the game for half the price and also get windows and mac users to push for the linux stretch-goal.

    and the publicity linux is getting is huge, which gets more users and developers on board.

    when you reach developers/projects early, anything is possible.

    We are actually getting Windows users (many may had ever even heard of linux till now) work for us here. The way it should be !

    this is what i call crowd-sourcing

    I know what you are getting at, but since I keep Windows around for games, I am not denied any of the over-hyped dreck I mention. It's merely a fact.

    You meant to say that "HoN was not an AAA game when it appeared". Because it is now.

    Funny the sentence "I haven't heard about this title previously until yesterday I began to be carpet-bombed with emails talking about this game possibly coming to Linux."

    I said it here and here and that's like 11 and 8 days ago.

    Weird.... oh and Michael *did* reply to me the second time...

    Very old game from the 90's. It was fun though in network clubs at the time.

    It's simply a crash'em car derby over a city landscape. Lots of jumps(big crazy jumps), power-up, etc.

    None of those make it a AAA game. Development and marketing budgets are what determine AAA status.
