Kindle Fire launch, Ubuntu downloads.

Feb 11, 2012 incarnate link
We are now live on the Kindle Fire! The game runs fairly well on the Fire, and has a special graphics config that makes it look pretty nice. Relative to the price, it's a pretty speedy little device with a good quality screen. There can be a bit of an audio delay (a known KF thing), which is noticeable when typing.

In other (Linux) news, Ubuntu has informed us that we're in the top 10 most downloaded apps for January, from the Ubuntu Software Center. Pretty cool, we're happy to be supporting the advancement of Linux on the desktop :).


Faction stuff and other development are still ongoing. We were hit with a stack of issues out of left field this past week that delayed us a little. I'll make a newspost (and likely an RFC) next week.

Glad to hear the news and thank you very much for the RFC. As much as VO needs the extra biz it also very much needs the faction system fixed. We appreciate all the hard work.

I donwloaded mine through ubuntu yesterday after discovering the game on, its a nice touch that the developers fully support a linux client.
