    Is this just hypothetical or are there people won't able to play it (except Machtnix ofc) if it's not 32bits ? 32bits or 64bits is not really about performance. Some parts are much faster in 64bits, but then it needs more memory. The main reason to move over to 64bits is because of the jit compiler for the programming language, that has no x86 support and don't really want to waste time on working something out there.

    I think it's because Vis makes adventure games which shoudn't need a quadcore with Windows 10 and a graphic running on 100 frames per second. I have all my games running on XP, also "Myst Revelation", "Gray Matter" or all pixelart games  are quick enough. Sometimes there are OpenGL or other features missing, but usually the games are "only" simple 2d characters walking on a 2d scene...

    It's just like cutting a hedge with a helicopter... wink

    I believe most developers make small, pretty, tiny games for in between. The mainstream is only for Daedalic, that maybe needs  64bit (but Deponia runs on 32bit also...). Because Linux is a system for "potato computers" the 32bit support ist more important there than on Windows.

    XP support won't return, it's about 32bits here.

    As soon as my hardware allowed I moved on, by Win7 64 bit was sorted 
    Running the 32 bit Debian Raspbian was hard work because very little uses 32bit on Linux, I had to build from source a lot of the time, 32 bit Linux is a total waste time for a desktop or laptop, considering they is lite versions of most distro's, my laptop uses less the 400meg for the system compared to 2gb for Windows 10, my i7 is awesome on Linux its just I need Windows for my work .
    Visionaire Studio is getting better and better on Linux, Krita or Gimp for art, Blender works effortlessly on this old laptop, so all the software one would need is up to date so why bother with 32bit if the system supports it?

    I Tried Truspace which was my modeler of choice in my 32 bit days and I don't know how I coped with so little available ram.

    I have some old Pentium engines which only allowed a 32bit Linux mint. This is really enough to work with office, surfing or watch movies. wink
    But because there are less games for Linux, I use my old XP to play.

    For my 64bit engine I installed a running 64bit Linux on a stick, but it's silly to use a quick system on a 2.0 USB port... smile
    Unfortunally I can't create a 64bit Linux on harddisk - I tried everything...
