Action RPG 'Contingent' set in late Roman Britannia will come to Linux

By - | Views: 7,823

Action RPG Contingent from developer Dark Age Studios seems promising, with a planned Kickstarter coming sometime soon and Linux support is planned.

Take a look at some shots:

When asking about Linux support, the developer said this:

We plan to support Contingent on both Linux and Mac OS. The more people that can play, the better! (plus I'm a big fan of Linux)

Always nice to find another Linux fan amongst all the developers we speak to. 

What's interesting, is that it will be mixing in traditional action-RPG mechanics with larger strategy elements too, with you being able to order troops around and lay siege to enemy settlements and villages. They say it will have the "tried and tested" combat system, with advanced combat techniques and a dynamic wounds system.

Follow along on Steam, their official site is just a placeholder. When their Kickstarter is live, we will let you know.

Sounds interesting and a type of game Linux needs more of. Will keep an eye for the Kickstarter.

Could be interesting. I'll wait for the confirmation of DRM-free release plans. Multiplayer though could cause a problem for it.

Sounds a little bit like King Arthur: The Role Playing Wargame. I'll keep an eye on it.

Sounds like a game I'd like. Will keep an eye on it, linux support + kickstarter even with official announcement - was burnt too often to pledge, but I hope the developer will be able to bring us a port. If it happens, it's a buy.

It's sadly reality that a lot of devs decide to bring out just a windows version in the end. If I was a windows user I'd take the risk of the pledge, as kickstarter evolved for linux users - I don't.

hard to tell much from the video and pictures on steam, but it looks like a third person game. Looks nice, from the little that is there.

For me sounds like Mount & Blade on the Roman empire. Graphically speaking looks promising, but in the preview it's not quite clear if there will be a story behind. I hope so, as with the nice environment the devs has created and a good history it will be a very enjoyable experience (and probably a must have :P).

I wonder what engine this is? The lighting from the torches in the video (on the Steam page) were remarkably bad, looking like small SUNS in all their insane intensity, yet barely casting any light on the surroundings at all...
Maybe it's a programming tweak?

I'm always suspicious of games that try to mix different play styles -- in this case action RPG and strategy -- because very few do it well.

Added the game to my Wishlist. Looks like my sort of thing. Interested to see game play and reviews when the game is ready. Looking at the pre-alpha video, I'm guessing this is at least 6 months away from release.
