Just wondering, why is the game Steam only for Mac and Linux when there's a DRM-free windows version? I don't actually use OSX or Linux so it doesn't affect me, I'm just curious.Reply
Actually, I just spoke with Micah (programmer), and he decided he would prefer that we just take the Mac/Linux drm-free availability off of the deal because he said that because the game uses the AGS engine he doesn't trust the stability/quality of it on Mac, and also (and mainly) that it is "wine wrapped" makes it sorta hard for people to install the game in an easy way.
So sorry for the confusion, I originally made it available for all three platforms,"DRM-free", because I was told we would have the stable builds shortly after setting up the deal, but I guess it never happened or they (Micah/Will) weren't able to figure out a "clean" way to do it for Mac. I already informed IGS and they told us to just let everyone know in the description, which I did today.
