In this challenging 2D action platformer, the goal is to increase a sword's power by completing quests for the Smith, the Chemist and the Mage. There are many powers to explore, and some of them combine together to create new hidden abilities. You can only increase your weapon a set amount of times before putting it to the test, so choose your upgrades wisely!

We'd like to bring the game to a larger audience, so we've submitted Brand on Steam Greenlight (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=92946396) and could use an upvote!

Love the idea and the game when it works, but it doesn't work alot of the time as jumping seems to bug often and all the time.

Is there multiple monitors plugged to your computer? We have bugs with dual screens causing an issue similar to what you describe. Any specs you can provide will help us identify this elusive issue and fix the game.

Thanks a lot for the info. I know I am in no position to make demand, but if you could try running the game without a dual monitor setup and confirm if the issue is still present or not, it would definitely be appreciated.

Setting it to a single monitor worked. Nothing special with the two monitors. Running a ati 6850.

There is no plan for a Linux version of Brand. We don't know how the game could have come up in Linux games, it doesn't appear there for us.

How hard would it be to port it to Linux?

Considering that the game was made using XNA, which is made primarily for Windows, and that we have no development experience in Linux, it would be hard. But the hardest part would be to find the resource to put more time in a port for Brand: the game was not financially successful, and thus we need to move on to a new project in order to survive as a company.

FYI, MonoGame is sort of XNA for Linux. Might be a thing to look into for your next project to open up other platforms.

We've moved to Unity for our next project and it's working wonders for us!
