Volunteering to port to Linux
« on: July 12, 2010, 06:36:35 AM »
Hi,
I'm really glad to see a project like this getting started - but I'm not too happy with the fact that it doesn't run natively on my favorite OS.
I'm a programmer, and I'd be willing to help out with porting it to Linux and BSD - but obviously I'd have to have access to the source code to do that. Any chance of getting that (under NDA if necessary)?

I understand wanting to run it natively.

It works great in wine though.  I am the maintainer of it.  I played through the entire first episode and it worked beautifully.  I don't know if they will give out the source code.  I also don't really know how the heck that would work.  they used the tourque game engine, which TBH I know nothing about.  A linux port may be possible, but for now it works great in wine.
