Rogue Legacy Is Out For Linux Now
Posted by , 16 October 2013 at 4:35 pm UTC / 8304 views
Rogue Legacy (Steam Link) is a genealogical rogue-"LITE" where anyone can be a hero. Each time you die, your child will succeed you. Available on Steam or direct on the website using Humble's store widget.

About
Rogue Legacy is a genealogical rogue-"LITE" where anyone can be a hero. Each time you die, your child will succeed you. Every child is unique. One child might be colorblind, another might have vertigo-- they could even be a dwarf. That's OK, because no one is perfect, and you don't have to be perfect to win this game.

Features
  • A procedurally generated adventure. Explore new castles with every life.
  • Rogue-lite. Your character dies, but with each passing your lineage grows and becomes stronger.
  • Tons of unique traits that makes each playthrough special. Ever wanted to be dyslexic? Now you can!
  • More than 8 classes to choose from (9)! Each class has unique abilities that change the way you play the game.
  • Over 60 different enemies to test your skills against. Hope you like palette-swaps!
  • Massive, expandable skill tree. Rack in the loot to upgrade your manor and give your successors a cutting edge.
  • Oh yeah, there's a Blacksmith and an Enchantress shop but we forgot to show them in the trailer...
  • Equip your heroes with powerful weaponry and armor. Or gain new abilities like flight, dash, and air jumping.
  • Tons of secrets and easter eggs to uncover... or are there? Yes there are.
  • Got a controller? Play with a controller. Big Picture ready.
  • Clowns.

When this first came out my twitter feed was rammed full of everyone saying how good this is, I am pleased we will finally get a taste.

Phew ! I thought it was only under steam. Actually a DRM-free title and it can be purchased via the HumbleBundle store (actually less expensive via the latter than via Steam).

Yup! I played the demo in Windows before I started my great Linux experiment. It's a grand experience from top to bottom.

Glad to have you here!  I hope the grand experiment works out OK, and you choose to stick around here :-)

That's great news, but the performance sucks on Intel HD 4000 ! The framerate is bad. I know the HD 4000 isn't really a gaming GPU, but come on, Rogue Legacy is old school 2D, it should be mooth even on an IGP...

I think I am. : D

I've still got a couple reasons to keep a Windows partition around, but I ended up liking ElementaryOS so much, I've just about switched to it full time over the last month or so.

If software support keeps growing the way it has been, I doubt I'll even need Windows for anything save a few older games in about a year or so.
