Our game came out today. It's a massive game for an Australian team, and a massive game for any indie team. We're all really proud of it. It's been 6 years in development.

It's out on consoles 6am local time, and out on PC at 5pm AEST.
Thanks for your support ❤️

Out now is the soundtrack!! You can buy it in a bundle with the game on steam, or on Bandcamp!

@maize does the system/way I purchase have any more impact on you financially than any other way?
IE. Will you be paid better if I buy on PlayStation over PC for example?

And if you won't, will your studio?

@screenbeard The platforms all take around the same cut. So, I have been saying to people to buy it on whatever you're most likely to play it the most on! Helps the algorithms. And then review it! I think on playstation, you can thumbs up it?
And then buy the album on Bandcamp! Which'll be up at 5pm AEST
Thanks so much for thinking of it!!!

@maize it'll have to be PS, as Steam doesn't have a Linux build by the look of it.

I'll crank my desktop speakers.

@screenbeard haha!
No no, it's hard to support Linux. So we rely just on linux users using Steam's built in Linux environment thingo.

@maize normally stream says if that's possible but the mobile page didn't say so I presumed not. Be happy to find out it does.

@screenbeard oh I see interesting! I'll see if that's something on our end to tick/check. Thanks for prompting. Linux makes up like under 0.2% of gamers, so we haven't had people checking things before.

@maize thinking about it, it may just be "a thing that happens" once Valve have tested it works, so if it's brand new maybe it's in a queue?

@screenbeard yeah, Valve to a check of it before it allows us to publish the store page. There has to be a working build. The team's checking our back end options rn, if it doesn't turn up it might be something we can message support about!

@maize @screenbeard it works on Linux for me (Debian 11) using proton 7 in Steam. My daughter is really getting into it!

@maize Ooooh, and it's available on Xbox, yay!! Will definitely be grabbing this!

@maize Actually scratch that, I've bought it already because I can do that without needing to leave the computer. 😁
