I dunno how I missed the comment a month ago but THANK YOU! It's really coming along. Actually, we're launching on Steam Early Access tomorrow (as well as here on Desura, plus Humble and IndieGameStand), so we've really come a long way in those three years. :)

Very true. I didn't mention it but this used to be a multiplayer game, ala New Super Mario Bros on Wii. There were two issues though: one, players kept trying to knock each other out than help each other, and two, more than two players and Fusion started choking. We could never find the RAM leak. Plus writing 24 variations on the story was not an undertaking I felt like pursuing.

Fusion has a lot more hardware support now than it did before, especially for mobile devices, but Unity has had it from the start. It IS good to see Fusion catching up, though, and Fusion3 is due out this year. That could be something to behold.

Thank you! It's been a ridiculous transition. I still personally use Fusion 2.5 (recent upgrade) for my "sketchbook" but for something of this magnitude I think we made the right decision.

Thanks! We're really excited about where it's heading and yeah, that whole young protagonist aspect has made for some really neat challenges in terms of narrative and gameplay.

Soon! We're crunching like crazy but don't want to put out anything broken or what could be perceived as a "downdate."

This problem got alleviated, right? If not I'll look into it for the next build.

The Unity Web Player is a fantastic plugin that gives you access to all manner of games on the web, 2D AND 3D! Worse case scenario, the game is on sale right now for just $5 for the #becauseWeMay sale.

The version available on Desura does not need Unity to play. It is a standalone executable for both PC and Mac.

Only the demo on our website needs the Unity Web Player to play.

On the site you had to select the specific section where your game is available. It wasn't really obvious at first that you could submit multiple times for different sections but hopefully developers will email in updates.

The game stars four kids, ranging from 8-14. You are definitely within range! Message me your info and I'll send you an audition packet.

dsilvers @ Children of Liberty Alpha Funding on Desura

Unity does not have a native Linux exporter. It does have Google Native Client. If Desura accepts NaCl as Linux builds and we feel like that version lives up to our expectations, we'll release it.

As of right now Unity doesn't have a native Linux exporter, however it does have support for Google Native Client. We've been discussing releasing a version for NaCl, and if we feel like that version lives up to our expectations, and it's accepted as a Linux build on Desura, then we'll definitely release it.

Not sure what the problem was, most likely either a connectivity issue or something with Desura. I hear Verizon FiOS is having trouble in some areas today, may have been related to that if you're on FiOS. Glad it worked though! Enjoy the game, updates will be coming in hopefully on a more steady basis in the coming weeks/months.

It's coming in kind of a roundabout way. They are adding Google Native Client support (NaCl, or as I like to call it, Salt), so Unity apps will run directly in Google Chrome without the need for Flash or the Unity Web Player. This means Unity games will work in Linux. Unity itself, however... not quite yet.

Loving how this is coming along. Always excited for the weekly updates! May now experiment with some ambient occlusions myself, if they don't make Unity cry. Haven't messed with them since my Maya days but loved the effect nonetheless.

dsilvers @ Player-wise, your game is or will be

Used to be a multiplayer game but design-wise that wasn't working, so we narrowed it down and focused in on making an awesome single player experience.

@Desiderium Whoa! Thanks for the catch! All fixed now. :)

@Henley Well the Desura build got submitted a couple hours ago (thank you so much, btw) and we're hoping for Desura, Steam, and Mac App Store minimum. OnLive would be pretty cool too.
