    It's installed in the usual way, through Steam. What error are you seeing?

    Because we use the Unity engine, we can only support what it supports. Officially, I believe that means we can only officially support Ubuntu (and that's what we test against here). But I know other distros have been used by other players successfully. Hopefully someone who uses a different distro can comment here...

    Where does the error message appear? Is it showing up within Steam before you download it, or is it showing up after you've downloaded the game and try to play it?

    Oh, it's not a 32-bit version of the OS, is it? We need a 64-bit OS.

    32-bit is the only explanation I can come up with that makes sense to me. I use Manjaro Linux, so I'm unfortunately running a different flavor too, but the only time I've seen an "unsupported platform" message on Steam was when I tried to install a Windows-only game that I own for some reason. I don't think there is really a meaningful way for Steam to determine which Linux distribution someone is running - it should be either Linux (32 or 64 bit) or not.

    I'm using a distribution that is not officially supported by Steam but generally it works just fine. I've had at least one Steam game not run after I installed it, but I didn't get a Steam unsupported error in that case; it just did not run. When I finally got it to start in a terminal window, I had some library errors that were causing the game to crash, so I updated the libraries and everything was fine.

    We've definitely had people running Project Gorgon under Mint with the alpha launcher.

    @SneakZ - if you are positive you are using a 64-bit OS, can you confirm that you are first launching Steam, and then right-clicking Project Gorgon in your installed games list and clicking Install, and that's when you get the "unsupported platform" message?
