Well right now there is no linux executable, and when we are going to sell it we will sell the entire linux version as one downloadable package. However the boxed version will have the same data as the linux, just without the linux executable.

Hope that clears up things.

timonator:
Not sure how you are planning on installing the game on linux since it is a windows installer. Can wine or something fix that?

well, wine certainly could. then i'd have the data files and i'd slap the linux binaries over it or something.
or urkle would release an installer that sucks the data files out of the windows installer.
or there would be a package with only the linux binaries.
