The Linux port of fighting game Them's Fightin' Herds is coming along

By - | Views: 7,808

The Mane6 development team have posted a short but slightly amusing update on the upcoming Linux port of the fighting game Them's Fightin' Herds.

As a brief reminder: it was originally funded via an IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign with an initial funding goal of $436K, which was way back in 2015. Linux and macOS support were stretch-goals at $486K, meaning they would only happen if it hit that goal. Once the campaign finished, they managed to raise around $586,346.

It then went into Early Access in February, 2018 and released proper in May, 2020. So we've been waiting a little while for the Linux support to arrive. On Twitter, the official Mane6 Dev Team put up a video (shown below) and mentioned, "Wanted to show off some progress on the Linux port! Yes, this is running natively on Linux! Though... we do have some... polish, left to do...":

Looks good. Ship it! Joking aside, the issue there is obvious and quite amusing to see in action but it's nice to see an official update on how the game is coming along.

You can buy it from Humble Store and Steam.

Now' I'm experiencing motion sickness without a VR headset...

Joke aside, really happy to see that this is still happening. Thanks!
