[Linux] XDG base directory spec isn't followed

I just downloaded the demo from GOG, and the game looks quite promising. I'll buy it when it will come out! Special thanks for actually using the now almost forgotten practice of releasing demos.

Now about the actual issue. I guess you still didn't have a chance to implement XDG base directory spec? The game still creates $HOME/.frozenbyte instead of placing things in $XDG_DATA_HOME/frozenbyte (or $HOME/.local/share/frozenbyte).

Can you please fix this at some point?

Thanks!

Hi shmerl!

Sorry that we haven't changed the base directory location yet, but I'm currently changing the code to comply with XDG specs, so unless something disasterous happens, the game should use correct base directory at launch :)

Thanks for the reminder!
