The End of the Sun, a slavic first-person fantasy adventure has managed to run a successful Kickstarter campaign. Against their initial $12,000 goal, 741 backers pledged $18,001 to help make it.

What is it? A strange sounding tale that's what, interesting though. Set in the world of Slavic rites, beliefs, legends, and their everyday life. It is a series of mysterious events that ordinary people dealt with, as they were living in a small village where the line between myth and reality began to fade perilously.

See some commented gameplay below, keeping in mind that's work in progress stuff:

In it you play as the Ashter who is gifted with the ability to travel in time and knowledge about Navia (the space where human fates shape), following the trail of the secretive fugitive. On your travels you you come across a mysterious village, but you cannot find anyone there, at least not in a way you wanted to. All you can see are burned hearths around.

We've spoken to the developer a few times, and they've been vocal about their Linux support. The game director, Jakub Machowski, was part of the team that developer The Mims Beginning which also supports Linux.

See the finished campaign here and you can follow on Steam. As for a release date? You know how these go, it's only ever an estimation but they said it's likely in the first half of next year.

As it's funded now it's also listed on our dedicated crowdfunding page.
