Hi, I just got the Studio pre-order, and noticed there's no download for the Linux version yet. Is there a plan to support Linux development in the Studio as it was in the case of AppGameKit Classic? I don't mind if it gets released later, I still have Windows desktop available, but I would prefer to stick to one platform for all my development in the future.

Linux version will be worked on after we launch Windows & Mac, hopefully 1-2 months after.

Have you considered Wine as a stepping stone ? It was pretty good anyway - it will run some thing Windows won't - but it's steamed ahead since the adoption by (errr.... Steam). I've experimented with AGK2 and everything seems to work fine including things like broadcasting. The only tweak is to set up theming in Wine, desktop apps look a bit scruffy otherwise.

Yes, i know, WINE is a great Software! i use it for MagicaVoxel And with many Games under Linux from STEAM (PROTON). Great to hear AppGameKit Studio is working finde with WINE. But a native Linux Version usable with STEAM would be great !

Ok, bought it and it works fine with WINE but I wait until native Linux Version is on Steam. Great to see how the project grows.
