To our Linux players: Game Dev Tycoon for Linux and glibc

The issue was never with the GPL. We know enough about licensing to know that you should stay away as far as possible from anything licensed under the GPL.

The issue is that the L-GPL, while being more open for commercial use has a clause that requires you to distribute a license to it even when you just dynamically link to it (as we did). From discussions, hardly anyone knows about this - I’m surprised that not more software gets flagged.

Anyway, we are getting close to a linux release now. Just a few technical tests outstanding.

Their own FAQ says dynamically linking doesn’t require any action - unless the headers used in so doing include certain things. If the glibc headers do, it’s a bit weird.
