Windows only? But that makes it harder to play on a Pyra using Box86! O_O
Linux is coming...
Unfortunately I've had nothing but problems trying to make a linux build using VirtualBox so I probably won't have one ready for the initial release. I'll setup linux properly when I get my head together and try again later. For now, sorry, please use WINE or Proton and please don't lynch me. I'll build it for the Pyra when I get mine.

I've still had no luck with the SteamOS runtime, but it seems to build and run fine on any Linux distro that has SDL2 and SDL2_mixer installed.

Does anyone actually run SteamOS? Is it even still a thing they're continuing to work on?

I've heard it's not very popular, but I believe that requirement only exists because users of other distros may not have the dependencies contained in the runtime installed on their own systems. There's a possibility I could just ship the Debian build without them checking, and it'd probably work for most people, but I know there will be those few who don't have one or both of those libs installed who leave a bad review because it "doesn't work". When I get bad reviews, they should be about how the game sucks, not about the game being a broken scam.

It's pretty common on itch.io to see games with Linux and Mac builds with a message from the developer saying that they should work but are untested and might not work.

Its pretty common on itch.io to say it is a linux build and then just tell the players to use wine.
And then its usually some unity garbage that doesnt even run in wine.
