After some delays the crowdfunded indie fighting game with characters designed by acclaimed cartoon producer Lauren Faust, Them's Fightin' Herds, will release for Linux on March 25. This follows from our report in January about the port being mostly done.

This latest news comes from their latest announcement posted March 9, which confirms Linux support amongst other big new features coming to the game. Here's what to expect from TFH 2.0:

  • A sweep of rebalancing and bugfixes for all characters (along with some universal system changes).
  • New Pixel Lobby: Hallowed Grove (Oleander's lobby), and new hats!
  • New stage: Hidden Waterfall.
  • New replay system (check out our video preview here).
  • Credits roll added.
  • A first round of general menu remastering.
  • Native Linux support added (with Mac to follow in a future update).

Additionally the first DLC fighter will be coming at the same time, with Shanty entering the fray. At $4.99 this DLC will add in Shanty as an additional playable character, the Capricorn (Shanty's stage) featuring fully dynamic music for all characters and a Shanty Pixel Lobby avatar.

You can buy it from Humble Store and Steam.

Raised very young in fighting games like Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Soulcalibur, Tekken, I find it hard to get interested in this one.

Why? Because it has ungulates instead of bipeds?

Somehow, it feels like fighting games just got more eccentric, except for the laugh, hard to be interested honestly.

Still waiting for a DRM-free version, I would buy this game at full price without thinking twice if it came with a DRM-free Linux build

To me, it seems like it's just hard to go to a new fighting game and start at square one at this point after playing so many when I was younger. I feel like I should give some of the new ones a chance, but I haven't played any of them enough to be motivated to really learn the ins and outs.
