Version differences[edit]

The Collector's Edition includes the Insane Viking Pack which was previously only available to pre-order customers.
The Linux version of the game has been removed, as Adobe AIR no longer works properly in modern Linux system as of it's support being dropped since 2011. The game developer recommends using SteamPlay's Proton feature which according to the report works flawlessly out of the box.[2]
