Crypt Run just shy of Linux stretch goal

By Matt Hackett - | Views: 9,801
Crypt Run is a medieval fantasy hack 'n slash with procedurally generated dungeons and a unique death mechanic. Its CryptStarter! was successfully funded last week and Lost Decade Games are now looking to the Linux stretch goal.

They've successfully built their HTML5 game using Intel's open source node-webkit open source software project, but now need additional dev time to iron out compatibility between popular Linux distributions. The campaign's Linux stretch goal is currently 85% funded and it is trending towards hitting it going by kicktraq.

Thanks for visiting us, Matt!  Looking forward to your game.  It has a very Binding of Isaac feel to it, but the promise to be properly supported on Linux (Isaac is just a wrapped Flash game in Linux, and the dev isn't really interested in us).

I commented on Crypt Run under our latest issue of The Funding Crowd, our weekly crowd-funding roundup, and requested coverage from our crowd-funding experts on the next issue (should be on Monday or Tuesday).  Also, the lead writer of that column has already updated our crowd-funded Linux games wiki to reflect the new stretch goal!

I'm sure the final $800 to Linux will come through in short order. :)

I'd love to start seeing Windows as a stretch goal, that's what I'd like to see. Turn the tables around, see how those users feel. It's a nice looking Game btw.

As far as I remember they decreased the stretch goal for Linux, right? Well, I think it´s not that difficult to reach, I hope we can get this game on Linux too.
