As a gamer, it is fun and exciting to see great games on multiple platforms that can be enjoyed by more gamers. If only one person requested that Introversion's games be published on Desura, it would never happen. If a thousand requested, then it may happen. So please let the human beings and the gamers be happy.

I'm gonna have to side with them on this one. I've never used linux but it's true that the more of them asking the same thing, the more likely it is to happen.

Encourage all you want. That's the only way this will happen. Twitter 'em, post here, wolffire, tell the humble bundle support you want Desura keys, etc.

You're right, you should stop posting.

bert: are all of these people posting from different IPs &c., or do we have an invasion of sock puppets? The large quantity of one-post-wonders all saying the same thing is suspicious...

Unfortunately, the recent global ban incident taught us that all users appear to come from the same IP due to the way the Amazon Cloud works. We could test your hypothesis by banning the loudest one and waiting whether one of the others complains.

That seems to be a rather big downside vis-a-vis the Amazon Cloud. . . .

I'm all for banning the loudest one to see what happens. :twisted:

Ban 'em all, and let MCP sort 'em out.

Will the Steam-version of Uplink going to be updated to 1.6, like the direct download, too?

A few of us have also posted in the Desura forum / client but it seems relevent to post here also and bring it to the developers attention - it's gotta be pretty cool that a group of people are getting together and requesting support for their preferred client in a structured & organised way, so they can play & install the games they enjoy in the manner they prefer? It's even gotta be some positive press for Introversion if they decide to support Desura - surely it's not harder to implement (with the relevant support) than the actual writing of multi-platform games in the first place? With the release of the Humble Intoversion Bundle the Introversion fan community must be due a bit of a growth spurt - why not take steps to support the community as a whole, new & old, in every way possible?

+1 for Desura support :) (and it's pretty cool of Introversion for supporting Linux in the first place, much respect :)).

I was originally registered with this forum since around the release of Darwinia, but lost my old username thanks I guess to an aging memory ;p

Someone posted a link to this thread over at the Desura forums, so that's probably why there's so many Desura users registering and posting here. It's similar to how you always get a bunch of people asking for a Steam version whenever a game isn't available there. Desura's pretty much the Steam for Linux.

Anyway, I don't think spamming about it here is likely to help. Registering interest is one thing, but derailing threads like this isn't the way to do it. It reads more like spam, and paints Desura in a bad light.

The number one mistake being made: posting more than a sentence which adds absolutely nothing new to the conversation. Your posts are the first in this long line of Desura-mentioning posts that I didn't read looking for evidence it wasn't spam. Why did I (and others) do so for the others? Because they seem replicas of each other.

We understand the sentiment, but +1-posts never really worked (especially not when the thing being +1ed is basically a topic hijack). At least if some arguments were being given and an attempt to convince was being made, you could label this a proper discussion but instead it's more like a bunch of people shouting "we're with many, we should be heard". Posting here is not going to magically get people to take you seriously, listen to your ideas or even get people to care that you have anything to say - if you want to make a statement a little more effort is always appreciated. Especially around here.

So to be clear, this has absolutely nothing to do with the message you're all trying to bring across. Just the terrible way it's being presented. ;)
