Release Date and Platform

Question 1: Do you plan to release the game as early access or somewhat finished?
Question 2: Do you plan to release on Steam?
Question 3: Do you have an ETA for a release date? Can we expect it soon to play during quarantine?

Hi Comrade!

I plan to release the game on Steam as an Early Access title initially, and add more content and features to it over time. ETA for release is probably a couple of months from now, though, so no quarantine relief for a bit :(

Sorry! And I'll do my best to get this thing ready soon :)

Do you need anyone to test the game before release? I would love nothing more. Either way, I've been playing Neo Scavenger for a long time and I'm really looking forward to Ostranauts being released in early access on Steam.

Thanks for the offer! I don't need any additional beta testing for now, but if I do, I'll be sure to put the request on blast so you don't miss it :)

I like playing NeoScavenger, and would happily buy Ostranauts as well - except, it's not available for Linux. :(

Thank you for reading this.

Sorry for the lack of Linux support!

I haven't been very useful to people with Linux issues on NEO Scavenger, so I've been hesitant to release non-Windows versions of Ostranauts. I don't want to promise something I cannot adequately support.

However, once the Windows version is mostly stable, I may attempt a Linux version. It might end up being "unofficial" since I don't know if I can test it much and/or fix Linux specific bugs. But it might be worth a shot!

Ostranauts is working fine on my Linux rig using Steam Play :)
I don't NEED a dedicated Linux version , it's a nice to have!
