After Alderon Games successful crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo for their dino themed survival MMO Path of Titans, the developer reached out to gather more Linux testers.

They've released a first demo and it's currently quite limited with the character creation ability the only thing possible. However, once a month they will be deploying a big new feature for it like the ability to run around, AI, quests and so on.

The primary objective for this first demo release will be to find as many bugs as possible within the launcher and demo so we can have them fixed well before pre-release access starts to give pre-release backers the smoothest experience possible.

After trying it out myself, it does seem to work great! This is a nice way for Alderon Games to show they can support Linux well, while also allowing them to gather some extra feedback.

I'm very much looking forward to running around as my new hungry pal Burt:

If we run out of keys, it's still possible to back the game on their official store with pledges that give you access to the game also giving demo access.

Does not launch for me. Crossing off for "Show Log Window" in the launcher settings does nothing, forcing windowed mode does nothing. Can't find any logs anywhere.

I assume some missing dependency. What's the point of a fancy AppImage launcher if the game itself is just installed somewhere to run as normal?

Boo. Didn't realise it would require gtk3.

Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any way of releasing the license and I tied my account to my steam, so I can't release it for someone else to use.

Quoting: WorMzyBoo. Didn't realise it would require gtk3.

Shouldn't the snap include its dependencies?

Anyway. What is there seems to work perfectly fine. Not much to test of course, but I wanted to at least see how it responded to ultrawide. Which seems to be good apart from a minor nitpick.

This looks like a really interesting take on an MMO (even though it is not the kind of game I usually get into). But I doubt it will work well on my potato computer, so I'll pass for now, despite the amazing dinosaurs.

Edit: fixed my wording, because it unintentionally sounded dismissive of the game.

thx for the key

first start it hang on loading screen. alt+F4/Tab didnt work
i had to cntrl+alt+F2 and kill the process there. the full command: /gamedir --vulkan..... so i guess it uses vulkan. it is an UE game so vulkan should be default

second start it worked

hope we can run around soon

Thanks for the key.

First i don't like appimage or snap. Luckily a community memember in discord was kind enough to extract the contents from the appimage, so i could use it standalone :)

It works but with few issues.
-It doesn't take any input when its in fullscreen. Alt+enter fixes it, Windowed fullscreen works. I have 2560x1440 monitor and i think the game tries to scale but fails. The resolution box in the settings menu is empty for me also.

-Second issue is framerate. I have a 1080Ti and with everything low except textures its around 60 FPS in the character creation and GPU being 98-99% utilized. with everything set to Epic its around 42-48 FPS in the same menu and GPU still 98-99% obviously.

Other than that, looks neat. Visually the game looks quite blurry though (disabling post processing and AA helps a bit), no sharpness at all, but thats common thing with UE4 as i have seen.

ANyway looking forward to the release of some actual gameplay
