@Ocho, @Rep

Our PC platform is only through Facebook Gameroom at the time.

So adding more platforms is always a nifty idea, after all that way more people can play the game right?

Here's a few of the reasons not to do this willy nilly however:

  • Each platform supported/build adds more complexity to the QA process. Basically each one needs to be tested any time you do anything
  • Each platform adds a burden to Customer Service. Each version will have unique issues that end up causing people to write in to CS. That means either longer wait times for tickets or hiring more CS folks.
  • In this case it's not just another build (Linux), but also another platform. Steam integration is actually a fair chunk of work, and has its own issues that need to be planned around. 

So you can see it's a super complicated thing, which explains why this isn't in the cards right now. We could reconsider at a future point, but it's not likely at this time.

Thanks,
Ocho
