Plans on Linux compatibility?

Recommended Posts

I've been using Ubuntu recently (SO. IN. LOVE.), and I'd like to know how are the plans on getting DST to that platform.

 

(Do not worry, Joe. I still have access to Doors, and also Windows, so I'll be able to provide feedback <3 )

What platforms are supported?

For now, the Don’t Starve Together will only be available through Steam on PC. It is unclear at this point when or if this will change during beta. We are doing this to focus our efforts on development rather than maintaining separate builds. We will announce support for new platforms as they become available.

 

Based on that, I'd guess Linux will probably not happen during the beta, but is going to come at some point.

You should be able to wine it.

 

EDIT: I'd test that myself if I ever manage to get a key

I use Wine, but the Linux Steam isn't very nice and doesn't let you install non-Linux games.

Surely there's a way around it, I'll have to look around I guess

From my brushes with the Mac porting community, I think you can actually install Steam into a Wine wrapper and install it that way. You can also install it on a Windows computer/drive, then copy the files over to your Linux drive and use Wine, I believe.

I'll be trying that, thanks (:

If it's compatible on Windows -> Compatible on Mac -> Compatible on Linux

It's going to be some time if it's not compatible right away.
