Lithuanian developer Tag of Joy are currently working on Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit, a colourful upcoming adventure game and it will support Linux.

Crowns and Pawns, inspired by point-and-click classics such as Broken Sword, Still Life, Syberia and others, brings the less explored history of Europe to the world of adventurers. Experience the legendary stories of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, beware of the villainous branch of the KGB, solve puzzles and follow hints to reveal the secrets of the king who was never crowned.

Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit isn't a newly announced title, in fact it's actually had a Steam page up since 2019. What is new, however, is Linux support. Back in April it started listing Linux support so I reached out to the developer, and they confirmed very clearly, "Yes, the listing is correct - we plan to have it on Linux as well!". See their early teaser below:

What they say it will feature:

  • A blend of history and myths set in a modern world.
  • Directed by the lead artist of a highly acclaimed fan adventure Broken Sword 2.5.
  • A refreshing look at the classic point-and-click adventure genre.
  • Hand painted HD art with a touch of modern graphics features.
  • A world that reacts to your decisions.
  • Customizable character looks.
  • Featuring real life locations all around Europe.
  • Fully voiced dialogues.
  • A control scheme designed for both a mouse and a gamepad in mind.

As for when it's going to release? It's a little while away, currently aimed towards early 2021. However they've announced they're part of the Steam Game Festival that's coming soon, so it might even have a Linux demo up for it.

You can follow Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit on Steam.
