Gorgeous adventure-puzzle game The Lightbringer gets a Linux demo

By - | Views: 15,754

Interested to try out a fresh demo? The Lightbringer looks pretty great and the developer seems keen to support Linux with it too and they've put out a demo.

"The Lightbringer is a poetic adventure/puzzle platformer with light combat elements, set in a beautiful world claimed by a vile corruption. Guided by your sister’s spirit, you must prevail where she could not. Cleanse the corruption, become The Lightbringer."

Game Features:

  • Old School Adventure
    The Lightbringer draws a lot of inspiration from earlier Zelda games, and is all about invoking that feeling of wanting to explore every nook and cranny.
  • Semi-isometric Gameplay
    With a rotatable camera in an isometric view, you’ll need to look at things from many different angles in order to find solutions to your obstacles. Remember: There’s often more than meets the eye…
  • A poetic journey
    Your sister’s spirit guides your entire journey, narrating the gameplay entirely in verse.
  • Hazardous Dungeons
    Explore dark dungeons full of danger. Watch out for traps, secrets and that pesky slime!

Interested? You can find the Linux demo link to give it a try and report back to the developer in this linked Steam post. Hopefully if the testing goes well enough it will be another game to have full Linux support at release. So far, it seems to be going well and the game works quite nicely.

You can follow The Lightbringer on Steam.

Seems interesting. Someone knows games like Hob, which seems similar to this too?
