From the creators of The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker and The Shapeshifting Detective, D'Avekki Studios have put up a Linux Beta version of Dark Nights with Poe and Munro.

"Adventure in the strange town of August with local radio hosts and secret lovers Poe and Munro, as they encounter six unique mysteries on and off the air. Direct the banter and the action as they fend off a nightmare stalker who just won’t let go, a vengeful ghost looking for everlasting closure, a demonic painting that grants wishes - and more - but can you keep Poe and Munro together, and alive…?"

Originally released in May of 2020, writing on the Steam forum the developer announced this on March 16, 2021:

Updates! We now have a Linux build available in the beta tab :-) It's been run and tested on Ubuntu 18.04 which will be our recommended spec, but hopefully it will work on many flavours...

Some of the features include:

  • Six simultaneously released, fully interactive episodes
  • Almost 5 hours of full screen HD video
  • An intuitive point and click timed hot-spot interface
  • Alternate endings for each episode and hundreds of branches

Find it on Steam.

Timed hot-spots sound annoying. Like quick-time events you need to chase around the screen. But maybe they're not as bad as they sound? If they are, they'll definitely ruin the fun for me.

Looks great otherwise.

I believe there was an option to turn the timed part of it off.

I've got to the final episode and have been going through some of the alternative choices I could have made in previous episodes. It's great fun!

I played this via Proton a while back, it was great fun. I went through it a bunch of times trying to see all the endings. If you like FMV games, chances are you'll have a blast with this.

As PublicNuisance wasn't sure: Is it possible to disable the "timed" aspect of choices?

Yes, there's an option in the Settings menu. However you still have to click once on the game screen to 'pause' the choice selections as they appear.

While it's possible to disable the timer it's pretty generous and since most of the time you have no idea what it is you're choosing anyway it's mostly meaningless. No amount of dexterity is required at all.

I'm now through the game and concur that it's a great way to spend a few hours.

Good news and it is also on sale now so bought it, going to report back if I encounter any issues with the Linux version. Not expecting any problems though, because the devs previous Linux versions have worked fine
