The lights are on
Cellar Door Games has disclosed that Mac and Linux versions of its indie hit Rogue Legacy are "very close." Additionally, there is more content coming in the next patch.
In a conversation with Joystiq, Cellar Door Games co-founder Teddy Lee also indicates that the other versions could see a slight delay should the new PC content come to the other platforms. Rogue Legacy will also be coming to PlayStation platforms, as we reported from Gamescom 2013 in Germany.
Rogue Legacy relies on a genealogy mechanic that sees your heroes retire, leaving the fight to their offspring. The title received strong reviews from critics, including Game Informer.
Rogue Legacy is the latest in a series of titles both large and small that are making their way to Mac and Linux. Along these lines, Valve is targeting the living room with a series of announcements related to Linux gaming in the living room.
Our TakeAs a Mac owner, I'm excited to finally play Rogue Legacy. The title was all the buzz back in July, and while I'll be coming to it late, everything I've heard about it has me intrigued. The title has full controller support on PC, and it will be interesting to see how that is implemented on Mac, which has notoriously poor support for gamepads.

I love this game as it's fun and each level of randomness (like the drawbacks or benefits) present their own challenge. I highly suggest this title to Linux and Mac owners.
I really love this game, I just wish I had more of a reason to play it more. One day they should make an expansion that adds a few more areas with new enemies and bosses. That would make playing the game again from the start all the more worth it. Because randomized or not, 4 areas for a game that's re-played as much as this? Needs a bit more... I'll pay money!
This game was well worth the money I dropped on it at the time. But I haven't picked it up in a few months. Still, it's something people shouldn't miss. The ideas in the game are fantastic, and I think should become standards in the platforming genre.
Mac has native bluetooth PS3 controller support. Good to go on that front.
This game is fantastic, I'm glad that it is coming to other platforms.
