Will this be free to owners, upgrade, or another purchase?
The (Mac + Linux) version will be available as a separate package when they are available.
This is due to the fact that the Mac and Linux port where done by a different developer (Steven Noonan) who will receive royalties for his work. Since there was no way for me to tell what platform will a user be choosing when purchasing a package consisting of all 3, and pay him the royalties accordingly, we found this to be the best option.However
, we have yet made a final decision on this, but here are a few of the options that I have thought of, to keep everyone happy. This things are pretty much sure:
1.) For those that own the PC version of Untold, and want the Mac+Linux builds, we (exosyphen studios) will forfeit out 50% royalty that is our from the Mac+Linux builds, making sure that the 2 ports together won't cost more than $12.48
2.) If the case will be 1.) the user will have the option to receive a free copy of the original Hacker Evolution game, to cover his expense (the royalty for Steven Noonan).
3.) I will speak to Steven to see if we can make some kind of deal for existing PC customers.Most important
, as many of you know, we would like to hear any oppinions/thoughts/suggestions on this, to try and work something out to please everyone (existing customers and Steven). Please keep in mind that as far as we (exosyphen studios) are concerned, we will forfeit our royalty share for existing customers, to lower the price by 50%.
When the ports are ready, there will be 2 packages:
PC : Standard price of $24.95
Mac + Linux : $24.95
Cross discounts will be available.
