Linux version of the Bard's Tale on GOG?

For all discussion on all the previous Bard's Tale games: the classic 1980s games (Bard's Tale, II: Destiny Knight, & III: Thief of Fate) & the humorous Bard's Tale (2004) spin off.

Linux version of the Bard's Tale on GOG?

Post by shmerl » September 28th, 2014, 6:34 pm

Hi.

I really enjoyed the new Bard's Tale (bought it both in the Humble Bundle and on GOG). HB has the Linux release, but unfortunately GOG still doesn't. Are you going to release the Linux version of the Bard's Tale on GOG too?

Thanks!

No info about it? I hope inXile didn't abandon the idea altogether.

We'll investigate putting the Linux versions of our back catalogue up on GOG. Currently other things are taking our attention though, so it may be some time.

Meanwhile - if you know how to work DOS-box on Linux, then it should be easy to use the Windows version data.

Not for the new Bard's Tale. But I played it in Wine however - it works well.

I would buy it again for Linux. Yes I know I can get it working myself (and I have -- for c64, IIgs, and Amiga), but there's something nice about having it all packaged up.

Not really interested in the jokey version though.

I would also prefer buying it in the Linux as it will work very well in this version rather than any other one.

Wow, that’s good news!
I’ve been gifted this game by some great guy (I’m pretty sure you’ll read this, so thank you again), but had no time to try to get the Windows version play on my Debian. No need for the extra work anymore, downloading right now!
