I'm a bit late to announce this but it is live now: Steam Summer Sale, and you can get UnReal World  for discounted price until 9th of July.

I want to bring this to your attention because it is likely that when next version is released the interval between Steam version and standalone (donation-based, free-of-charge) installers will be significantly longer. This is because the donation-based distribution has been receiving very marginal and insufficient support for years already, and I have to reason things out how to balance with the current distribution models. I'll be happy to answer possibly puzzled questions of relatively recent of near-future intending donors but that will have to await until next week - but don't hesitate to even e-mail if you feel like it.

Why this announcement is late then, is because while the sale was launching I was busy attending to 'science-art-forest' themed seminar and workshops at Koli in eastern Finland - a location famous of its hills and cliffs which are well-known national sceneries of Finland. 
In addition to presentation about working with the game I also performed an archery demonstration in the most awesome location I have ever shot a bow.
Summer is full of opportunities. Let's not hesitate. Cheers!

I've played this game for a few months (again after so many years) - I just recently installed Steam on Linux to buy the Mount & Blade bundle, and while I was at it, I bought this game, too. Listening to the newly-released album by Heilung and playing Unreal World just feels... natural.

I love Mount & Blade!

Unrelated, but.. how's M&B working for you on Linux? A memory leak plagued me and others for years, and had to start playing it on Windows, sadly.

Haven't noticed any problems so far. The basic M&B runs on Steam Play, which means it's a Windows binary, running on top of Steam's Proton emulation layer (sort of Valve's own WINE fork, I think) - M&B is one of the games it has been tested for, so it was just a matter of clicking Install in Steam to get it working just fine. I haven't installed Warband yet - that's a native SteamOS/Linux port, but I don't really expect much problems there either - it's an older, fairly high-profile game, so I'd expect I'd heard plenty of complaints by now if did't work.

Same as always; lifetimers for get everything ie. every version, on any platform or distribution channel, free of charge for ever (ie. lifetime of the game.)

Ah, I assumed you meant Warband. I haven't bought basic M&B yet (kind of curios now..).
Warband did have a very annoying memory leak that obliged me to switch to Windows to play it. Happened only with heavy mods though, especially Viking Conquest.
