We now have a test branch ready to try for Linux users!

In your Steam Library:

Right-click Battle Chasers: Nightwar, and click Properties from the menu
Switch to the Betas tab
Choose linuxtest from the drop-down

I’d really like to have this be installed as part of the game install, but I haven’t discovered a clean sensible way to do that yet. Advice is welcome.

Please report any issues you find in this thread. If you have a problem with the game and find a workaround, post that, too.

Thanks again, and sorry it took longer than expected to get this ready!
