Side-scrolling action game Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is no longer coming to Mac and Linux, producer Koji Igarashi has revealed.

In an update on Kickstarter, Igarashi announced that the decision to cancel these two versions of the game has been made “due to challenges of supporting middleware.”

“We have made this tough decision due to challenges of supporting middleware and online feature support and making sure we deliver on the rest of the scope for the game,” he wrote. “We will be offering backers who planned to play the game on Mac and Linux the option to change the platform of their order.”

Backers who chose the Mac or Linux versions of the game can change their platform of choice by emailing the team.

“Development has reached its peak — we are currently checking the performance of Bloodstained on each platform,” Igarashi added. “Overall, we are done with enemy placement and entering the adjustment phase. But there are still many progression-blocking bugs that must be taken care of.”

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
