OS X Version Now Please

Tired of waiting! I joined the Kickstarter campaign all those years ago for a Mac OS X version. I want it now please!!!

But derekk, if they were to put out the Mac version right now as we speak, they'd most certainly have to get extra work done to make each subsequent update work flawlessly on both systems. Eh?

You make it sound like they either have an OSX version ready but are just holding it back out of spite or can just press a button and release an OSX version?

They have always said they would port the game to OSX and Linux after work on the game's core is finished. They are still making major changes to the engine and there is no point in porting to other platforms until that work is done as that would just delay this core engine work due to less people working on it and delay the ports due to them being constantly behind the rewriting which is going on for the Windows version. It sounds like they are nearing the tail end of all the core engine work they've been slaving away on so it's safe to assume they will start porting to OSX relatively soon.

Getting angry and demanding it right now with three exclamation marks won't change anything, the OSX version will be ready as soon as they can have it ready.

exactly Trent, you should take a look at the last update comments on the kickstarter page, it's ridiculous the amount of complains over there.

Sorry you're so out of touch. I stick with what I wrote. Go drown some puppies or something.

Another out of touch loon. Flock together, fly into walls together.

I think what we require is MORE complaints, loud, long, clear, demanding, annoyed, ticked off, really really tired of waiting.

Now you go drown some kitties.

So many maniacals on the net. So many opportunities to tell them to shove off.

Hi DerekCurrie,

Mac and Linux versions are still planned but we are unable to put a date to this while work still continues on improving the Windows version.

Do you maybe have some kind of minimum estimate based on how much work is planned for the Windows version? Would it be too optimistic to hope for the ports in 2016?

Cant you use bootcamp or something?
Install a new partition until you get the OSX version?

I understand you want it , but making games is not easy and there is no point in making an OSX version if the base version is not ready to port.

At least its something thats going to happen at some point , its not like if they said its never going to happen.
