Native Linux support
Maybe add native linux support? It currently works good with wine but native support would be better i think. And if it is added please make the linux version also available on GOG

I would love to see native support for Linux. Can't say how big the playerbase is, but there are quite a few reports over on ProtonDB https://www.protondb.com/app/1062090
I love the concept and the mechanics, but i only play native linux games.
Civ, dont starve, and warthunder are my mainstay, but im sure this could easily join this illustrious group if you cater to your available market.

Not to diminish importance of native linux support, especially with Steam Deck coming, but it's just silly to ignore proton.
I'd rather see it work perfectly for a range of Linux-based distros through Proton than have another broken native Linux game. My experiences with 'major' native Linux games haven't been good, my experiences with Proton generally have.
The advantages of a native Linux version for me are:
1. Hopefully I can get it through gog.com, download the game once then store it on a drive (I have a 'slow' internet connection).
2. I can save some electricity by not having to run Steam and Proton. Might sound specious but it's important to me. I already save significant amounts of energy when I can game on Manjaro (Xfce) instead of Windows 10.
I had to install Windows first to install timberwood.
Windiws is too complicated for me. Wine is ok, but i want to get the updates (over steam)
On my linuxsystem timberwood performed better than on native Windows btw

Kl_haribo, what stops you from getting updates on linux? Steam updates any game just fine even if it's not native.
first of all, thanks for your work, i too would like a linux version.
Purists might be upset, but personally I'm perfectly happy with proton, though I would love to see it adopted for official support. Seeing "We currently don't officially support Linux" from admins on other threads is somewhat disappointing, and I can only currently recommend the game with severe caveats to others using linux, given the state of its protondb page. That being said it was working well out of the box for me with proton 6; I just have concerns that it will be broken in a future update and possibly only currently works with a limited range of hardware.
Does work on Proton so stands to reason it can be ported with only minor issues (if any), I expect the main issues will just be input & possibly sound effects, doubt your using metal or directx & you're probably using glfw so visual stuff would already be sorted, since the mouse etc is supported by glfw input shouldn't be too much of a problem (if at all) so really just minor issues to deal with when porting
