Outland A 2D Platformer Coming To Linux!

By - | Views: 8,983
Outland is a 2D platformer with action game elements developed by Housemarque and published by Ubisoft. Gameplay mainly revolves around using Light (blue) and Dark (red) energies, which allows the player to pass through their respective barriers, and attack monsters born of the opposite alignment (e.g. use Light to attack Dark monsters). The game uses an open world structure.
A developer has confirmed a Linux port is being developed.

@collidernyc OSX and Linux versions are in the works. We don't have a release date for those yet, but we'll have them :)

Outland is a fast-paced, dynamic platformer where the player uses powers of light and dark in an epic journey to save the world from forces of chaos.
In-between Balance and Chaos stands one man, whose efforts will either bridge the ancient divide or doom the world to destruction. Outland is an ambitious 2D-platformer with a beautiful visual style and a unique, polarity-switching gameplay system. Your adventure will shift between light and darkness as you struggle to adapt in an ever-changing world! Article taken from

Quoting: HadBabitsReminds me a bit of Telsagrad (what with the red and blue elements), save for a lot of charm. :P
Except that Outland came out two and a half years before Teslagrad... And the red / blue stuff is basically Ikaruga's main mechanic, albeit different colors.

I wasn't insinuating that one inspired the other, that's just what came to mind :)
