Brutal action shooter 'RUINER' will arrive on Linux this Friday

By - | Views: 9,168

Are you ready to lash out at a corrupt system to uncover the truth? Be ready as RUINER [Humble StoreSteam] releases for Linux on Friday, April 6th.

The official Twitter account for RUINER just sent this out earlier:

Mother, where's my tux? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)ノ⌐■-■

Ruiner is coming to Linux THIS FRIDAY.

Along with this teaser picture:

About the game:

Sophisticated & Brutal Combat: RUINER features lightning fast combat that requires a delicate balance of overwhelming, brute force, and elegant strikes to overcome all manner of savage opponents. Blast through crowds or slow down time and hand select your points of attack before unleashing a storm of violence on the battlefield.

Cyberpunk Inspired Arsenal: Equip all manner of high-tech firearms and melee weapons to ruin all that oppose you. Employ state of the art gadgets like energy shield, dash augmentations, and the switch gun stun or hack the opposition onto your side of the fight. 

Story-Driven Action: Violent confrontation is a means to an end and trust is a devalued currency in Rengkok as you navigate a senseless world with the help of a mysterious hacker friend.

It's been a strange story with this one, but I'm glad to see they're finally ready to deliver on their promise of a Linux port. It's seen delays, mixed signals and all, but we always aim to give every developer a fair chance.

Cool! It's about time that one of all these "coming-to-linux-soon" games without a specified release date, actually arrive.

This looks very interesting, so it'll be a purchase right away.

Great, I've been waiting for this one. What about another "coming for Linux" backed by Devolver Digital, namely Shadow Warrior 2?

Just that that some tracks from the OST were composed by Susumu Hirasawa, of Berserk and Paprika fame, is good reason enough to buy this, not to mention how neat it looks.

Seriously I'm so glad they're bringing it to Linux, props to the devs for making this happen.

Quoting: GuestCan't really afford it but think I'm going to pick it up regardless,

Well, the first 13 to comment in their announcement on steam gets a key for free. So, if money is tight you might get lucky if you act quickly! ^_^

EDIT: Or possibly they will pick 13 winners out of the commenters based on some kind of criteria. "-We will choose the lucky 13, by selecting only good Puppies ;)"

How about system requirements? I meet the Windows one, are that for Linux the same or is like with Feral that pumps things up?

Great news and these devs just kept their word, only 2 questions: Is it coming to GOG? - and how does it run on Mesa?
