After successfully crowdfunding on Kickstarter back in 2017, Blasphemous is now out but sadly the Linux version is currently delayed.

There seemed to be no mention of this before, which likely would have been quite frustrating if you were a Kickstarter backer. Speaking about it when queried on Steam, the publisher Team 17 said it is coming but they have no current date for when that will happen. The developer, The Game Kitchen, have also today put out a Kickstarter update post to mention "Due to circumstances out of our control, Mac and Linux are not going to be publicly available at launch, but they will be really soon.".

Have now idea what Blasphemous is? Have a look at the release trailer below:

Always a shame when things get delayed but if they make the delay worth it with a nicely polished Linux version, then it won't be so bad. Hopefully good things will come to those who wait.

Once they get an actual date or release out there for Linux, we will let you know.

For now you can follow it on Humble Store, GOG and Steam.

I have the game in my GOG library waiting for the Linux build (backer key). :)

Woah molly, this isn’t the kind of game I expect when I hear Team 17! I’m surprised you didn’t add a gore warning before that video, Liam (not that I personally mind).

Not sure if I will enjoy this better on the Switch but after what happened with Bloodstained, which I'm suffering now, perhaps wiser to go for the Linux build when available.

Quoting: GuestThis game looks pretty damn solid. Unfortunately I can't get over the giant, ridiculous Dunce Cap the protagonist has on his head.


I'm sure it is written into the canon/lore of the game with some kind of dark, otherwordly explanation, but I just can't get over it. I snicker incredulously every time I look at it. I can't take it seriously because of it and I just don't think I could get into it for that sole reason.

Is that weird?
Sorry in advance if I sound lecturing, it’s early and I’m just trying to be to the point.

Looks more like a capirote, actually, considering the game’s theme and the protagonist being called The Penitent One. You can even see the Goya painting from the Wikipedia article on the KS page. Similarly to the dunce cap, the original intent was to publicly shame flagellants, but there’s certainly a more serious undertone here than just being a dunce. They also made it a tad more hardcore than the original paper cap:

I’m actually more interested in the game now that I know a bit more about its context :)

Linux isn't important. Get to it whenever. Meh.

Looking forward to the Linux version, I know a lot of people are on Windows or console, however there are a some of us who aren't interested in that path. I'll be buying my copy as soon as it's released on Linux, hopefully via Gog.
