Developer Ogre Pixel is currently running a successful crowdfunding campaign for Lonesome Village, a puzzle-solving adventure with social simulation and town-building that's now confirmed for Linux.
Their crowdfunding campaign had an initial goal of 420K Mexican Peso (around £15K) and they've managed to get quite a lot more funding with it currently sat on around £58,524. Thanks to how well received it has been, they put out an update to confirm "We are happy to share that we have decided to include Mac and Linux as launching platforms for Lonesome Village!".
Check out their trailer below:
They say it the idea came up as a result of mixing two games they loved together, those being classic Zelda titles and the social side of Animal Crossing. With the result being "reminiscent of classic RPGs" but their approach to the interactions with villagers, as well as the life sim elements "make the game feel like a brand-new experience altogether".
